OJS Take Division Meet Cornwall in First Round Playoff Action!
The Ottawa Junior “A” Senators will be hanging up another Divisional Banner for their efforts during the 2013-2014 Season. Their 39-20-0-3 regular season record was good enough to place them at the top of the Yzerman Division standings and third overall. Their 21.35% Power Play percentage (2nd overall) and 83.81% Penalty Killing percentage (3rd overall) helped them capture their second Divisional Title in as many years. Well done Boys!

Your 2013-2014 Scoring Leader was Ryan Collins who chalked up 82 points and placed him 4th overall in league scoring. Matthew Dupont followed with 65 points while Deric Boudreau (64), Justin Charbonneau (52), and Joey Champigny (50) filled in the second to fifth spots. A special congratulations to Hunter Racine, who compiled an impressive 48 points in only 37 Games. Congratulations to all our Top Guns!

Goaltender Alexandre Savard-Belanger finished fourth overall amongst all Goaltenders with four Shut Outs and a respectable 2.57 GAA and .903 SV%.

Congratulations to Donna Hurren of Carleton Place who won February’s Monster 50/50 JackPot of $510.00!!

OJS Lose Alumnus Art Neilson
Long time CCHL supporter, coach, manager, owner, league president, and past Ottawa Junior “A” Senator President and Owner, Arthur (Art) Nielson passed away on January 10th. CCHL Commissioner Kevin Abrams in his press release stated:

“The CCHL family has lost a patriarch and visionary leader, as well as continuous supporter in the passing of Art Nielsen. Art served in every possible capacity and until his passing this morning, was a keen follower and supporter of the Central League. A former coach, manager, owner and president, his contributions are too lengthy to name and accomplishments even more impressive.

His legacy remains and his strong support of student athletes in the CCHL will continue to be felt for many years to come. To his wife Dorothy and his family we express our deepest sympathy and offer our heartfelt condolences"

The Ottawa Junior “A” Senators will hold a moment of silence during their next home game on January 15th for Art. He will be missed.

OJS Go 5-2 for December – 1-3 Since Returning From Break
41 Games in and with the season two thirds complete the OJS sit tied, with Pembroke and Nepean, in a three way battle for first in the Yzerman Division, 3rd place overall, with 51 points and a 25-15-0-1 record. December was an improvement for the club which had struggled the previous two months with some inconsistent play. Since returning from the Christmas break however the team is having a little bit of difficulty refocusing and has lost the past three in a row after winning the first game of an away and home series against the Braves. With still plenty of hockey left though the OJS are setting their sights on a Divisional Championship and home ice advantage for at least the first round of the playoffs.

Your top five scoring leaders are: Ryan Collins with 55 points; newly acquired forward Matthew Dupont with 42; Deric Boudreau with 41; an injured Hunter Racine with 40; and Eric Clitsome with 36. Keep up the good work boys!

December also saw Chris King traded to Smith Falls for Forward Yannick Crete. The OJS welcome Yannick to the Club and wish Chris the best of luck with Smiths Falls!

Volunteer Party Another Fun-Filled Success
More than 50 players, volunteers, parents and guests participated in this year’s Christmas Party which featured a Pot-Luck put on by the players and a Gift Exchange sponsored by the team! Loads of fun was had by all! Many thanks to all who helped make it another OJS success! Click here for pics.

Trade Deadline Action
With Hunter Racine suffering a severe lower body injury which will see him out of action until the playoffs, the OJS needed to take steps to shore up its top lines. Traded to Cumberland was Andrew Rossy and Nicholas Ford – both highly valued players for talented forward Matthew Dupont. Matt made his presence known during his first game with the club putting two pucks into the net during a 5-3 loss to Smiths Falls - which saw the OJS come within seconds of rebounding from a 4-1 deficit after the first period. As always the OJS would like to thank and wish both Andrew and Nicholas the best with their new club and welcome Matt to the team!

Congratulations to Terry Corcoran of Stittsville who won Novembers’s Monster 50/50 JackPot of $655.00!! See Rose to get your ticket for the January Draw!

OJS 19-10-0-1 at Mid-Season Mark
The month of November was spotted with inconsistency as your Junior Sens go 5-4 for the month and slip to second place in the Yzerman Division tied with their cross-town rivals, the Nepean Raiders. That puts the team in fourth place overall, tied with Nepean, but with 4 games in hand. The month started on a high with two back-to-back wins against the Raiders but finished with losses against Kemptville and Cumberland, two teams struggling this year to break into the top eight.

Home Opener 2013
The November 13th “Remembrance Day/School Game” versus the Hawkesbury Hawkes was a huge success with almost 500 students from both Louis Riel and Franco Cite in attendance. The game featured the CCHL debut of ‘98’s Joey Larcher and William Bitten who both picked up a point during the match-up - Joey registering the goal and William the assist. The future is looking bright for both these outstanding young men!

Ryan Collins continues to lead the point tally for the OJS with 42 points while Eric Clitsome is sitting with 32. Derek Boudreau, Hunter Racine, and Shawn Lynch are in a tight race for third with 28, 27, and 26 points respectfully. Goaltender Alexandre Savard-Belanger sits second amongst all goaltenders with a very respectable 2.63 GAA and .907 Save Percentage. Great effort boys – keep it up!

Come for a Game – Stay for the Season! Go Sens Go!

Congratulations to Jessica Wong of Nepean who won October’s Monster 50/50 JackPot of $1,250.00!! Tickets were SOLD OUT! See Rose to get your ticket for November’s Draw!

OJS Finish October with 14-6-0-1 Record
It was a tough October for your Junior Sens, finishing 5-5-0-0 for the month. The record had them finishing outside of the CCHL Top 20 for the first time all year and had them concede their see-saw battle with Carleton Place for first overall in the league. They still managed to keep in the race for first place in the Yzerman Division though with Nepean only 2 points ahead of the OJS who are 2 games behind.

Player Trades
The first player movements of the year were also made this month. Headed down the road and traded to the Gloucester Rangers were Greg Jansz and Matthieu Desautel. In return Ottawa acquired Andrew Rossy and OJS Alumnus Luc Deschamps. The OJS would like to wish both Greg and Matthieu the very best with their new team and welcome Andrew and Luc (Back) to the squad!

OJS Hold Moment of Silence for Alumnus Joe Chapman
The OJS held a moment of silence prior to their home game on October 23rd for Alumnus and Past VP of Hockey Operations and Head Scout for the 2002-2003 Ottawa Junior Senators, Joe Chapman. Joe was well known not only in the Junior “A” hockey community but in Minor Hockey circles as well having been involved with the NCAAA Hockey and Sports Camp for almost 20 years. The entire OJS would like to take this opportunity to extend their heart-felt condolences to Joe’s family.

Ryan Collins Leads Points Race
Ryan Collins leads the team with 33 points – good enough for fourth place league-wide and only 3 points off the pace for first overall. Eric Clitsome (25), Hunter Racine (23), Shawn Lynch (21), and Deric Boudreau (19), round off your top five. Good Effort Boys!

OJS Players Receive Honours!
Early October saw Ryan Collins receive Player of the Month Honours while newcomer and London Ontario native, Zac Tierney received Rookie of the Month Honours! Read More. It didn’t stop there though! Hunter Racine has just been selected to Team Canada East and will play at the World Junior A Challenge held this year in Digby, Nova Scotia, November 2nd through to the 10th. Zac Tierney has also been selected to play in the CJHL Prospects Games on November 8th and 9th. Congratulations to Ryan, Zac, and Hunter and best of luck to all the other CCHL players selected to Team Canada East. Show Us Proud!

OJS Ranked 12th Nationally with 9-1-0-1 Record
The CJHL released its’ Top 20 Rankings last week and the Junior Sens placed 12th across the nation, top in the CCHL. The OJS finished the month strong, dishing out a little bit of payback against the Raiders for their Game 7 loss during the Semi’s last season with a convincing 5-2 victory and then battling it out against the Grads, who handed Ottawa their only regulation loss of the season, and beating them 5-4. The OJS finished the month by thrashing the Stallions 11-4 on Wednesday and then beating the Rangers 5-2 on a rare Saturday game.

Ottawa’s 9-1-0-1 record has them sitting on top of the Yzerman Division and in a back and forth battle with Carleton Place for first overall. Ryan Collins not only tops the Roster with 20 points, he also sits on top of the league wide scoring race. Shawn Lynch, second with 17 points, ranks 5th overall across the league while both Hunter Racine and Eric Clitsome sit 3rd and 4th on the team ledger and are tied for seventh place overall.

This coming week will be all about the Pembroke Lumber Kings in a Home and Away Series which has the Kings playing in Ottawa on Wednesday and Ottawa traveling to Pembroke on Friday.

Ottawa Junior Senators Pay Tribute to Alumnus Douglas (Doug) Murray at Home Opener
Home Opener 2013
The Ottawa Junior Senators paid tribute to Alumnus Doug Murray, who passed away at home the previous Wednesday at the young age of 46, at their Home Opener on Saturday, September 7th. Doug played left wing for the Junior Senators during the 1984-1985 and 1985-1986 seasons. He received both the Sportsmanship and Academic Ability awards during the 1985-1986 campaign.

Doug played a total of 132 games for the hockey club accumulating an impressive 75 goals and 113 assists for a point total of 188, an average of over 1.41 points per game, while only being assessed 66 penalty minutes.

Doug leaves behind his wife Katja as well as his two children Jordan and Joline. He devoted his life to his family, friends, and his never-ending love of the game of hockey.

OJS Continue Where They Left Off During 2012-2013 Season
The Junior Sens picked up 7 of a possible 8 points in hockey action this past week, good enough to keep them on top of the Yzerman Division – tied with both Pembroke and Nepean but with a game in hand. In the season opener held at the Bell Sensplex, Ottawa upset Bogart Cup Champions Cornwall 3-1 and then followed that with a 4-2 win over cross-town rivals Carleton Place. In their final game of the Showcase, Ottawa fell 4-3 in a shoot-out loss to Smiths Falls, in a game that saw Ottawa suffer 2 disallowed goals during regulation play.

The Junior Sens redeemed themselves at home the following Saturday though, trumping Kemptville 7-3. CCHL Rookies Shawn Lynch and Thomas Crevier broke the ice and scored their first CCHL goals with Lynch picking up 2 goals and 2 assists and receiving First Star Honours for his efforts.

At the top of the OJS points chart sits the trio of Hunter Racine, Ryan Collins, and Eric Clitsome all with 6 points. Justin Charbonneau and Greg Jansz share 5 each and Shawn Lynch, Zac Tierney, and Chad Millett round the top 8 off with 4 points each.

Rematch with Carleton Place Wednesday

The OJS visit Cumberland on Tuesday and return home the following evening to face what is sure to be a spirited Canadians squad. It will be on the road again Friday evening when the Junior Sens travel down the 416 to Brockville to play the Braves.

Come for a Game – Stay for the Season! Go Sens Go!

Raiders Take OJS in Seven

The OJS finished the 2012-2013 campaign short of their ultimate goal, falling to a more play-off savvy Nepean squad in 7 games during their semi-final match up. In a series which saw both teams trade wins on home ice. The advantage seemed all Ottawa’s going into game 7 at the Jim Durrell Rec Complex on Wednesday, April 10th. The OJS had plenty of opportunities to put the series away but failed to capitalize and the resulting 2-1 loss turned-out-the-lights on an otherwise stellar season.

The numbers tell the story: OJS Goaltenders Charlie Millen, 1.67 GAA and .943 SV%, and Alexandre Savard-Belanger, .72 GAA and .977 SV%, finished their season ranked 1 and 2 amongst all goaltenders with 60 minutes or more of post season play. The OJS PP was ranked 2nd overall at 20.37% while the Penalty Kill came in first overall at 91.80%. Leading the post season points race was Ryan Collins with 12, Greg Jansz with 8, Chris King with 7, while Joey Champigny, Ben Robillard, and Michael Evelyn all had 6 a piece.

Charlie Millen accumulated 14 “3 Star Selection” points, while Ryan Collins was good for 11, and Michael Evelyn 8.

The semi-final series results were as follows:

@ Ottawa 5-0 Win
@ Nepean 3-0 Loss
@ Ottawa 5-1 Win
@ Nepean 4-2 Loss
@ Ottawa 3-2 Win
@ Nepean 3-2 Loss
@ Ottawa 2-1 Loss

The OJS would like to take this opportunity the thank our Volunteers for the countless hours they contributed to the team’s success during the 2012-2013 campaign. We would also like to wish overagers Charlie Millen, Owen Werthner, Paul Landry, Trevor Packard, Eric Witzel, and Derek Brown the very best in their future careers both on and off the ice, and best wishes to Ben Robillard as he pursues his scholarly endeavours!

Make Us Proud! Go Sens Go!

Exciting Week Caps Off Great Regular Season

In the final week of regular season play the OJS secured their rightful place on top of the Yzerman Division and went on to take first place overall in the extremely competitive CCHL. Their 40-16-2-4 Season and 86 Points gives them home ice advantage throughout the playoffs which start on Wednesday, March 13th when they meet the Hawkesbury Hawkes.

Even the single loss the OJS suffered against Kemptville on Sunday, March 10th was exciting. A very much diminished OJS squad, with many of its’ starting players out of the line-up – the team having secured its’ spot on top of the standings the day before, battled through 65 minutes of regulation play and 50 shooters (25 aside) in the Shoot Out before Kemptville scored the only goal to take the game 4-3.

Your Top Three Scoring Leaders during the 2012-2013 Campaign were: Ryan Collins (79), Ben Robillard (68), and Eric Clitsome (61). Honourable Mentions go out to: Greg Janz (56), Hunter Racine (40), and Michael Evelyn and Luc Deschamps both with 39. Chad Millett led the team in PIM’s with 99. The Goaltending duo of Charlie Millen and Alexandre Savage-Belanger, both a big reason for the successes the OJS enjoyed this season, finished the season both in the Top 5 with Charlie posting a 2.65 GAA and .905 Save % and Alexandre a 2.68 GAA and .910 Save %. Congratulations boys on your stellar regular season efforts!

There’s going to be some exciting hockey played this Post Season! Come take in a game – see what all the excitement is all about! Go Sens Go!

Junior Senators Head Coach and General Manager of Hockey Operations has been named CCHL Coach of the Year for the 2012 / 13 season.  After being handed the reins a month into the 2011 / 12 season Coach Dorval guided the team to a playoff position and a tough first round loss to eventual finalist the Cornwall Colts.  This season saw the team finish first overall and win an impressive 40 games, against a League low 16 regulation time losses.  Under his guidance the Jr. Senators have 4 Major Junior signings, 3 NCAA Division I commits and 7 NCAA Division III commits along with 2 consecutive playoff appearances.  Congratulations Rick and staff.

Major Junior Signings

Deric played his 17 year old year with the Junior Senators and has signed with the Gatineau Olympiques of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.  He will add speed, scoring ability and tenacity to a consistently strong Gatineau team.  Félicitations et bonne chance Deric.

With only 13 games remaining in the regular season the OJS are sitting first in the Yzerman Division and first overall with a slim 2 point lead, and a game in hand, over the Carleton Place Canadians
. Ottawa’s 68 points and 32-13-2-2 record is good enough to land them in the 18th spot when ranked nationally against other CJHL teams.

The OJS also have the distinction of having the longest consecutive winning streak of the 2012-2013 Campaign having won 12 straight games.

A big part of that success rests squarely on the shoulders of starting net minder Charlie Millen, whose current 2.45 GAA and .912 save percentage has had him ranked either at the top or in the top three throughout the season. Backup Alexandre Savard-Belanger with a 2.92 GAA and 9.01 save percentage, has also been consistently ranked in the top 10.

Leading the OJS scoring race is Ryan Collins with 58 points who is followed closely by Ben Robillard with 55. Rounding off the top 5 is recently acquired Eric Clitsome with 44, Greg Jansz with 43, and Luc Deschamps with 37.

The January 10th trade deadline came with the OJS making their intentions and commitment clear. The Sens acquired Forwards, Eric Clitsome, Trevor Packard, and Chris King from the Grads and sent Bruno Cheff, Riley Hennigar, and Justin Lafleur to Cumberland. The OJS would like to welcome Eric and Chris, and welcome back Trevor to the team. We would also like wish Bruno, Riley, and Justin the very best of success with their new team!

The Junior Sens are also proud to announce that Ryan Collins has made a NCAA Committment to play for the University of Mass – Lowell in the 2014-2015 season. Congratulations Ryan on a tremendous effort!

Go Sens Go!

OJS Top of the Division, Tied for Second Overall
With half the season completed, the OJS sit on top of an uber-competitive Yzerman Division with 43 points and a 21-9-1-0 record, good enough for a tie with Divisional rivals Nepean for second place overall in the points race. Leading the league is Smiths Falls with 47 points – but with 2 additional games played. Stay Tuned!

The OJS is lead by Captain Ben Robillard who sits on top of the team points race with 37. Close behind are Ryan Collins with 33, Greg Jansz with 27, Luc Deschamps at 26, Eric Witzel at 25, and rookie forward Hunter Racine is at 22. Holding their own in the Goaltending category are Charlie Millen who is currently ranked 3rd overall with a 2.47 GAA and 3 shut-outs while Alexandre Savard-Belanger is currently ranked 6th with a 2.84 GAA.

The OJS also got a little bigger on the December 1st cut-down date with the acquisition of forward Chad Millett from Gloucester in a trade which saw veteran OJS forward Dylan Giberson moved to the Rangers. The OJS would like to welcome Chad to the team and wish Dylan the best of success with his new team!

In the Thanksgiving afternoon game at Earl Armstrong Arena the front running Junior Senators won their seventh game in eight starts. Ottawa (9-3) has accumulated 18 points to take the overall points lead in the CCHL, one ahead of Smiths Falls and two up on Carleton Place. Bears and Canadians are 1-2 in the Robinson Division race.

After building a 4-0 lead it appeared Junior Sens would cakewalk against the hometown Rangers. But Gloucester scored three of the last five goals to make a game of it! Rangers held a 30-29 edge in shots but were frustrated by Alexandre Savard-Belanger who made 27 saves for his fourth win against two setbacks.

Left winger Greg Jansz had a goal and two assists for Ottawa who led 1-0 after 20 minutes and jumped out to a four goal advantage by putting three pucks past Gianmarco De Meis in the Gloucester cage in a span of less than five minutes in period two.

Highly rated rookie Hunter Racine opened scoring with his fifth goal while Owen Werthner, Luc Deschamps and Bruno Cheff had the second period tallies for Ottawa. Andrew Rossy got Rangers on the board with just 21 seconds remaining in the middle period. Rosebrook struck twice in the third for the home team but Jansz powerplay goal at 13:52 was all the insurance Sens would need. Both teams had a pair of powerplay markers. But Gloucester misfired on seven man advantage chances and that proved costly. It was another hectic week in the CCHL with 15 games played from Tuesday through Monday afternoon.

Charlie Millen has tended goal for nine different teams over the past two seasons, but he may finally have found a home with the Junior Senators.

Millen, son of former NHL goalie Greg Millen, played for three CCHL teams and the Gatineau Olympiques two season ago, and last season he appeared in at least one game for three QMJHL teams, one CCHL team and one OHL team.

This season he leads the CCHL with a 1.97 goals against average and a .938 save percentage. He also has a 4-1-0 record.
