Open Thread: Rookie Tournament Game 1 - Pittsburgh Penguins vs. Ottawa Senators

An open thread to discuss this afternoon's game between Pittsburgh and Ottawa at the annual rookie tournament in London, Ontario.

It's here! For the first time since April, Senators hockey is back! Sure it's just the rookie tournament, but after the rookie tournament it's training camp and pre-season games!

Pittsburgh Penguins vs. Ottawa Senators, 2 pm

The rookie tournament kicks off the start of the hockey season and is exciting for most fans, whether you're a prospect person or not (I'm not). Sadly, I won't be returning to my old stomping grounds to watch like I had planned, but the games will be on TV:

If you're in the London area and want to check today's game or the rest of the tournament, check out the Budweiser Gardens website.

Which prospect are you most excited to watch?
