Sens Homecoming for Opening Night in Ottawa

As part of the festivities to celebrate their 20th season in the NHL, the Senators announced Wednesday that at least 14 and as many as 20 of the players who were on the inaugural 1992-93 team will return for the Oct. 11 home opener against Dany Heatley and the Minnesota Wild.
So they’ll also have a chance to boo Heatley.
Four days after the season opener in Detroit on Oct. 7, the home opener will officially launch
the first of many tribute nights during this anniversary season.
The 14 players who have confirmed they’ll attend the opener include Dave Archibald, Laurie Boschman, Neil Brady – who scored the team’s first goal in a 5-3 home win over Montreal on Oct. 8, 1992 – Gord Dineen, Mark Freer, Jody Hull, Bob Kudelski, Jim Kyte, Mark Lamb, Darcy Loewen, Norm Maciver, Brad Marsh, current Senators pro scout Rob Murphy, and Mike Peluso.
Boschman, the team’s first captain, said this is an event he and his former teammates are looking forward to.
“It doesn’t seem so long ago that we took to the ice that first night at the Civic Centre,” he said.
“The excitement level surrounding our reunion in Ottawa has brought back a number of great memories.”
Each of the players will also make appearances around the city in advance of the home opener. The team will announce the schedules later.
