78 days until the start of the Ottawa Senators regular season
Pavel Demitra was the only player to wear the #78 for the Ottawa Senators from 1993-1996. Demitra played 59 NHL games for the Senators, and 150 AHL for the PEI Senators. He recorded 12 NHL goals for the Senators and a total of 26 points. He was traded to the St. Louis Blues in November of 1996. Sadly, on September 7, 2011, Demitra was part of the plane crash killing the Lokomotiv Yaroslavl team. He is survived by his wife, Maja and two children, Lucas and Zara, and predeceased by his infant son Tobias.
Rest in Peace, Pavel Demitra.
