Happy Monday Sens Nation. After a successful Sweden trip, the Ottawa Senator go back to their regularly scheduled, check notes, "insane amount of days" break because the NHL is a fan of giving this team all the rest it can get. In the meantime, let's take a tour around the league and the hockey world for what's happening:

  • The Boston Bruins have announced that Milan Lucic will be on indefinite leave after he was arrested for domestic abuse charges. Lucic is set to appear in court today.
  • Patrick Laine went from being one of the league's top stars to being a healthy scratch? The Columbus Blue Jackets seem to think so. After benching him in the third period of their last game, coach Pascal Vincent decided that Laine needed some time off to get his game back.
  • The Sweden Global Series has wrapped up and the NHL has combined the top-10 moments from the event. The Sens are all over the list in a fun way.
  • Hockey is a passionate game but it seems things got too passionate when RCMP officers had to be called to a minor league hockey game in Nova Scotia. An altercation has resulted in a coach being suspended indefinitely but luckily nobody was hurt.
  • As neckguards have become a hot topic after the tragic incident that resulted in the death of Adam Johnson, one league is grateful for using them this week. The Hockey Eastern Ontario league posted a picture of a player who was cut in the throat during a U16AAA game and luckily only needed stitches due to being protected from the guard.
  • While he isn't officially retired, it's safe to say Carey Price's days on the ice are over. Price reflects on his career and life after hockey as he focuses on his well-being and the family in their home in Kelowna.
  • Hockey Canada has elected a new board of directors; members include Gillian Apps, Amanda Fowler, and Corey Hirsch.
