Yves Sarault L 1998-1999
Born in Salaberry-de-Valleyfield, Quebec in 1972, Sarault was drafted 61st overall by the Montreal Canadiens in 1991. A journeyman NHLer, Sarault played for six NHL teams between 1994-95 and 2001-02. Signed as a free agent with Sens, Sarault played two seasons in Ottawa and wore #23 during his second year in the capital. When his NHL career finished, he spent six seasons playing in the Swiss league and one in the DEL. Since 2009 he has played in the Ligue Nord-Américaine de Hockey, a low-level pro league. In April, 2013 he was named as an assistant coach of Canada's Men's U18 hockey team.
Dean McAmmond L 2006-2007, 2007-2008, 2008-2009
Born in Grande Cache, Alberta in 1973, McAmmond was drafted 22nd overall by the Chicago Blackhawks in 1991. He played for 9 NHL teams during his 18-year career, spending almost 6 years in the Edmonton Oilers organization. On October 1, 2002, while a member of the Calgary Flames, McAmmond was traded to the Colorado Avalanche. Later that season, McAmmond was reacquired by Calgary for a 5th round pick in the 2003 Draft. However, he was ruled ineligible for the rest of the season due to a transaction violation (players are prohibited from being traded back to a team within 12 months on the same contract). He was signed by Ottawa as a free agent on August 2, 2006. McAmmond spent three seasons in the capital as a useful role player. He scored the game-winning goal for the Senators in game three of the Stanley Cup Finals. Later in that same game, McAmmond was on the receiving end of a vicious Chris Pronger elbow to the head. McAmmond suffered a concussion and missed the rest of the Finals. McAmmond recovered in time for the preseason, but suffered another concussion when he was knocked unconscious by Steve Downie of the Philadelphia Flyers in a preseason game. Downie was suspended for 20 games and McAmmond missed 10 with injury. On February 20, 2009 McAmmond was traded with a first round pick to the New York Islanders for Mike Comrie and Chris Campoli. He accepted a PTO with the New York Islanders in 2010 but was released at the end of camp, four games shy of 1,000 NHL games.
Martin St Pierre C 2009-2010
Born in Embrun, Ontario in 1983, St. Pierre was undrafted after a successful junior career with the Guelph Storm of the OHL. He played his first pro season with the Greenville Grrrowl of the ECHL and the Edmonton Roadrunners of the AHL. He made his NHL debut in 2005-06 with the Chicago Blackhawks. He signed a one-year contract with the Senators in July, 2009 and spent most of the season with the Binghamton Senators. He played in just one game with the Sens on January 9, 2010 against the Florida Panthers. He has spent most of his career playing in the AHL and Europe and is currently a member of the Montreal Canadiens organization after signing a two-way deal this summer.
Corey Locke C 2010-2011
Born in Newmarket, Ontario (hometown of Brian Elliott and Amelia L) in 1984, Locke was drafted 113th overall by the Montreal Canadiens. Locke played one season of Junior A hockey with the Newmarket Hurricanes (my parents have season tickets) and was signed by the Ottawa 67's of the OHL. In three seasons with the 67's, Locke twice won the Red Tilson Trophy as the most outstanding player in the OHL. He signed a two-year contract with the Senators in 2010 and recorded his first NHL point while with the Sens in a game against the New York Islanders. Locke played an integral role for the Binghamton Senators during the team's Calder Cup run in 2011, winning the AHL's MVP award. In 2012, Locke left the Senators organization to play in Finland and Germany. He is currently a member of the Chicago Wolves of the AHL.
