The Senators saw their sixth straight home game postponed to New Years Eve when the league announced that the Minnesota Wild’s Monday visit to the Canadian Tire Center was postponed due to capacity limits at rinks in Canada.

While Saturday’s visit to Scotiabank Arena goes as planned against the Toronto Maple Leafs, the Senators won’t play another game in Ottawa until at least January 18, when the Buffalo Sabers are due to surrender.

A five-game road trip that begins Wednesday in Seattle then continues next Saturday in Vancouver, Monday in Edmonton, Thursday in Calgary and ends Jan. 15 in Winnipeg remains on the schedule and these games are expected to be play.

The Canucks said in a statement Friday that the “vs. Ottawa is expected to move forward as planned.

Most games will be caught up in February with the cancellation of the Olympic break, but the Senators are going to be very busy if that trend doesn’t change soon.


The Senators have had 10 games postponed this season due to COVID-19 and still have nine that need to be caught up. Here are the matches that need to be rescheduled:

November 18: Nashville to Ottawa

November 20: NY Rangers in Ottawa

December 19: Boston to Ottawa

December 21: Saint-Louis in Ottawa

December 23: Caroline in Ottawa

December 27: Ottawa to Washington

December 29: Boston to Ottawa

December 31: Pittsburgh to Ottawa
