Call for new Belleville Senators writer

We’re looking to add to our Silver Seven team

It’s mid-September, which means hockey season is just around the corner. The Ottawa Senators may have been quiet on the free agent market, but they made a big change in relocating their AHL franchise to Belleville, ON. Unfortunately, this means Jeff Ulmer has moved on to writing for All About The Jersey for the newly-formed Binghamton Devils. But with endings come beginnings, and that means Silver Seven is looking for a new AHL staff writer.

Responsibilities of the new writer include a weekly game recap, and a monthly more in-depth piece about the AHL team. Of course, you’re free to write whatever else you want too, this is just our minimum expectation. It would be an asset to live in or near Belleville.

Since S7S is an online community, a big expectation of our writers is to participate respectfully in the comment section and anywhere else you represent the site to our readers.

If you’re interested in replying, please send an article (500-1000 words) to about one of the following topics:

  1. What is the future of the Ottawa Senators’ goaltending?
  2. Who should be Erik Karlsson’s defensive partner this season?
  3. What is the Sens’ biggest area of weakness, and how do you think GM Pierre Dorion should go about addressing it?

If you have a S7S username, please include it! Also feel free to include social media profiles, links to other articles you’ve written, and anything else you think is relevant. Applications will remain open until 11:59 pm on Friday, September 22nd. Best of luck, and we look forward to having a new staff member on board!
