For a small taste of the joie de vivre Ottawa Senators left winger Guillaume Latendresse owns, let’s take you back to late November in Inuvik, Northwest Territories, a good 200 kilometres north of the Arctic Circle.
Daniel Alfredsson will be aiming to lead the Ottawa Senators to a victory over the Carolina Hurricanes Thursday. When the game is done, though, he will be anxious to see how his good friend Wade Redden made out in his 1,000th career NHL game.
Even after all their wheeling and dealing at the start of free agency July 1, the Ottawa Senators still find themselves $4.264 million under what will be the salary-cap floor in the fall, $54.2 million.
The Ottawa Senators have signed defenceman Mike Lundin as an unrestricted free agent. Lundin, 27, had two assists in 17 games with the Minnesota Wild last season and scored one goal and 11 assists in 12 games with the Tampa Bay Lightning in 2010-11.
