Ottawa Senators alumni visits Eganville

BONNECHERE VALLEY – While the snow and wind were ferocious outside, the Ottawa Senators Alumni did not disappoint their fans putting on a display of hockey excellence inside the Eganville Arena last Sunday night. The alumni squad were in town to face the Eganville All-Stars, a team comprised of former members of the Old Eagles Hockey Club.
