Senators: Increase in season ticket sales

Ottawa Senators fans are clearly encouraged by the many additions to their roster this offseason as the Canadian capital team reportedly saw a significant increase in season ticket sales for the 2022-2023 season.

The president of the “Sens”, Anthony LeBlanc, revealed this in an interview with the broadcaster Sportsnet. The senatorial organization has not yet released any official figures, but is expected to do so in the coming days.

The Senators also didn’t release numbers last season, but it’s believed there were fewer than 5,000 season ticket holders, which would be the team’s lowest total. The Ontario club also recorded the lowest average attendance per game in 2021-2022, with just over 9,000 spectators passing through the doors of the Canadian Tire Center during each game.

“I can say that the number of season ticket holders is the highest we’ve seen in a number of years,” LeBlanc said. We’ve seen a significant increase that started around Pierre [Dorion, le directeur général] made some trades.

During the offseason, Dorion acquired through trades, among others, forward Alex DeBrincat from the Chicago Blackhawks and goaltender Cam Talbot from the Minnesota Wild. He also agreed the terms of a three-year deal with Claude Giroux.

So, the “Sens” will try to return to the playoffs, they have not tasted this pleasure since the 2016-2017 season.
