It’s full steam ahead for Martin Dagenais and his Ottawa Junior Senators Junior A hockey club. Once again, the governor, general manager and head coach of the organization has his club battling it out for top spot in the overall CCHL standings.
For members of the Ottawa Jr. Senators, it was a rather painful experience to watch. Flashback to late April of 2016. The Jr. Senators had come as close as they could get to winning a league title.
Though he is still one of the youngest members of the Ottawa Jr. Senators, defenceman Merrick Rippon is receiving plenty of rave reviews. In fact, the 16-year-old had such an amazing season that he was selected as the Rookie of the Year in the Central Canada Hockey League.
Paul Vella has bounced around to various teams and leagues during his junior career. But the Kanata Lasers are glad the 20-year-old forward, a native of Staten Island, N.Y., has spent the entire 2016-17 campaign on their roster.
