Now more than one-third of the way through the Ottawa Senators’ shortened season, the numbers are staggering. Consider the following: The combined salaries of the team’s injured players – Jason Spezza, Erik Karlsson, Milan Michalek, Guillaume Latendresse and Peter Regin – is a whopping $20.663 million, according to capgeek.com. That works out to 39 per cent of the Senators payroll of $53.553 million.

Guillaume Latendresse understands why he has been answering injury questions over and over again – in English and French – day after day, ever since he arrived in Ottawa early last week.

The incoming Ottawa Senators left winger has played only 27 games in the past two seasons due to concussion and hip problems and he knows he can’t easily skate away from his history.
