Team report: Ottawa Senators II

Throughout the course of the lockout-shortened 2013 NHL hounding campaign, the temptation to resist hounding a team twice hasn't been too hard to overcome. Case in point: the Ottawa Senators, who made their second trip to Hockey Bay earlier this month.

If memory serves, it was the Senators who kicked off our hounding campaign, back in January. In fact, it was Ottawa captain Daniel Alfreddsson who signed our first autograph of the season.

The Senators most recent trip, however, didn't provide as fruitful as the first. All told, I added only 13 autographs, including the puck shown above, signed by Sergei Gonchar, and another from Hall of Famer Denis Potvin, to the collection.

The primary objective that trip, Cory Conacher, who was recently traded to Ottawa by the Tampa Bay Lightning, was nowhere to be seen before the game. I had a few pucks, as well as another item, that will have to wait for next season.

Still, getting any autographs is better than getting no autographs.

Signing the cards, shown above, were, from left,
Craig Anderson, Guillaume Latendresse, Chris Phillips and Kyle Turris

Jared Cowen signed these four cards as well.

I also added a pair of pictures to the collection:

Putting another magazine tear sheet, this one
