Senators cut nine, and B-Sens release their training camp roster

The Ottawa Senators' first round of training camp cuts were announced today: defencemen Paul Baier, Mat Robinson, Craig Schira and Kyle Wharton, and forwards Jason Bailey, Keegan Dansereau, Kaspars Daugavins, Matt Lowry and Brandon Svendsen.

Looks like a pretty small roster for the time being, but the Sens' still have plenty more cuts to make. In fact, you can bet a lot of these players will be suiting up for the Elmira Jackals in the ECHL this season, but I've got a feeling Dansereau, Schira, Wharton, and Daugavins all have a good chance of of staying in the AHL.

H/T to Michael Sharp for the roster.
