According to Pierre Dorion, the general manager of the Ottawa Senators, the team is looking back on last year’s highlights and looking ahead at the uncertain 2020-2021 campaign as some off-season changes are being made underway. Dorion will hold the Senator’s end of the season press conference with local media through a Zoom call on Thursday afternoon.
The usual conference used to be held at the Canadian Tire Centre, but due to the pandemic, Dorion held it through his office at his Ottawa home, where he stayed since March. He discussed some of the changes involved, such as putting coach D.J. Smith behind the bench, the drafts set on June 26, and some other off-season changes, including new faces on the team. The deputy commissioners have not yet released the date for the next season. It is to be confirmed when the Senators will start their season training.
