ANXIOUS WAIT: Christoph Schubert is nervously waiting to find out what's wrong with him.

The Senators defenceman contracted a virus while on vacation this summer and is still awaiting the results of a battery of tests by the club's medical staff.

Schubert hasn't been on the ice for two days and has been coughing and simply feeling under the weather.

"I can't really say much right now because I don't know," said Schubert. "We're supposed to have an answer here soon. I feel better than (Friday). I guess that's a positive."

Coach Bryan Murray hopes to learn more today. "They've ruled out a couple of things," he said. "He just needs to be healthy before we can get him back on the ice. At this point, he's not."

HOT TICKET: More than 13,000 single-game seats for the first 17 regular season games were sold yesterday, equalling the record set before the start of the 2005-06 campaign. The club also doubled its mini-pack sales. "(The results) show us fans in Hockey Country are as excited as ever for the team to return to the ice," said Senators VP of marketing Jeff Kyle.
