The ’05-’06 Ottawa Senators were the 25th seed in the inaugural Ultimate NHL Playoff. They swept the 40th-seeded ’77-’78 Colorado Rockies in the First Round and then were defeated by the 8th-seeded ’78-’79 New York Islanders in five games in the Second Round.

Players to Watch:

  • RW – Daniel Alfredsson – It’s Mr. Ottawa Senator, himself. Over 17 seasons with the franchise, Alfie posted 426 goals and 682 assists for 1,108 points in 1,178 games played. All are franchise records.
  • LW – Dany Heatley – #50in07. He posted back-to-back 50-goal seasons and that is a big reason why he if fifth in the franchises history in goals scored despite playing in only 317 games as a Senator.
  • C – Jason Spezza – The final piece of the “Pizza Line.” This trio got that nickname due to an arena promotion with a local pizza chain that gave the home crowd free slices of pizza during the ’05-’06 seasons when the team scored six or more goals in a game, which happened quite often with this line scoring almost at will.
