Senators Practice Sep 28

While the Senators training camp players are currently split into 2 groups, its obvious that those who practiced at Sensplex at noon Wednesday are seen as potential roster members.  While Craig Anderson (maintenance) &  Alex Auld (cramps) participated, those that did not included Jason Spezza (maintenance), Matt Carkner (maintenance-knee), Chris Phillips (maintenance – back) & Peter Regin (shoulder, day-to-day).  MacLean went on to say that while Regin’s injury is currently day-to-day, hopes for him playing on opening night were ” only optimistic.”

Stephane Da Costa left practice briefly after pulling up during a one-on-one drill.  Later, he would say that he has a minor lower body injury that’s no big deal.  Here’s Stephane Da Costa speaking on whether Regin’s injury will open up an opportunity for him.
