Ottawa Senators announce new primary logo change

Full Uniform Changes to be Unveiled October 6

OTTAWA – The Ottawa Senators (@Senators) today unveiled an updated primary logo that will see the organization return to its roots with the implementation of a modified original “2D” logo. The updated look is one that fans, partners and players have clamoured to see return. The new primary logo will also be part of an expanded new identity and overall uniform change, with those details set to be revealed prior to the NHL Draft on Tuesday, Oct. 6

“It is time for the Senators to return to our roots,” said Mr. Eugene Melnyk, owner of the Ottawa Senators. “The fans of this great franchise have high expectations. We have heard from our fans, our partners and our players, and we have listened. It is time to return to our heritage, but in a bold, new manner. The Senators have a rich history in our community, and we are ready for the next chapter to begin.”

The familiar two-dimensional profile of the Roman soldier makes its return, with gold trimming replacing the original logo’s red on the cape. The gold semicircle with laurel leaves, which anchors the logo, makes its return and increases its association with the letter “O”. The new logo replaces the modernized version of the logo that was first introduced prior to the 2007-08 season. A secondary logo will not be used for the 2020-21 season.

Ottawa Senators old primary logo from 2007–08 until 2019–20.

“A logo is an important part of any teams’ identity, but it isn’t the only part,” said Anthony LeBlanc, president of business operations of the Ottawa Senators. “The way this logo will be incorporated into our updated uniforms is the mark of a winner. It is time to start our new chapter of hockey excellence. A chapter that will make Sens fans in the Capital Region proud. We very much look forward to the unveiling of our new home and away uniforms on October 6.”

In a surprising move, Ottawa Senators buyout RW Bobby Ryan’s contract

OTTAWA – Ottawa Senators (@Senators) general manager Pierre Dorion announced today that the team has bought out the remaining two seasons of forward Bobby Ryan‘s contract.

“This was a decision that required a lot of consideration,” said Dorion. “Bobby’s long been a deserving fan favourite in Ottawa. While we’re appreciative of his efforts on the ice, it’s outweighed by how proud we are of him for the courage that he has demonstrated off of it. As we continue to take strides in our rebuild, this decision was one that we felt was best for the organization. We wish he and his family the best as he moves forward.”

A native of Cherry Hill, N.J., Ryan was selected in the first round (second overall) by Anaheim in the 2005 NHL Draft. Acquired from the Ducks on July 5, 2013, Ryan recorded 266 points (107 goals, 159 assists) over 455 games with Ottawa. A Senators’ All-Star representative in 2015, Ryan became the first player in franchise history to record multiple overtime winners in the same playoff year and ranked second in team scoring with 15 points (six goals, nine assists) while helping the team reach the 2017 Eastern Conference Final.

University of Cincinnati extending Football Protocols through South Florida game

CINCINNATI – The University of Cincinnati Department of Athletics will extend its current football attendance protocols through the USF game on Saturday, Oct. 3, 2020, Director of Athletics John Cunningham announced Thursday.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, no fans have been allowed in the stadium on game days except for immediate family members of players and coaches from Cincinnati and its opponents. Limited numbers of UC’s spirit groups from band, cheer, dance and the Bearcat mascot are socially distanced in the stands but not performing on field.

UC will reevaluate the possibility of fans in the stands following the USF game for the final three home football games of the season against American Athletic Conference foes Memphis, Houston and ECU.

“We have extended a difficult decision to not allow fans into the stands for our first three home football games,” Cunningham said. “We still feel strongly about our obligation to our campus and to the City of Cincinnati and surrounding areas to mitigate the risk of community spread of the Coronavirus. We will continue to evaluate the spread of the virus on our campus and in our community and will make future decisions about our final three home games, in consultation with University, city and state authorities. For now, cheer on the Bearcats from your home and keep looking for more interactive opportunities with our football team and gameday staff like the Mike’s Car Wash Virtual Fan Experience.”
