The Senators showed off their new look during an open practice Saturday morning at Scotiabank Place.
Wearing their new Heritage uniforms for the first time since they were accidently unveiled in the Buffalo Sabres souvenir shop last month, the Senators were introduced on the ice at Scotiabank Place.
"I like the look of our team and I like the way we look in these jerseys," said Ottawa defenceman Chris Phillips.
The "O" logo on the front of the jersey and on the uniform pants is there to honour those outfits worn by the Senators teams before the franchise left Ottawa in 1934.
The Senators will wear the heritage uniform on Oct. 13 against the Colorado Avalanche at Scotiabank Place.
Centre Jason Spezza, who wasn't on the ice for the club's formal workout, did have the 'A' on his jersey. That's no surprise because he will replace Mike Fisher as an alternate captain this season.
