The Ottawa Senators we’re going to have their share of struggles already this season. On top of having a less-than competitive roster, they have been hit hard by COVID to begin the year. Currently with a massive ten (10!) players in COVID protocols, and two others out with injuries, the NHL has postponed their next three games, at least.

Along with games against the Devils, Predators, and Rangers being postponed, the team training facilities are also closed.
Ottawa is 4-10-1 this season, tied for second-to-last in the NHL with the Seattle Kraken with nine points in the standings, ahead of only the Arizona Coyotes.
