Game Day Build-Up: Senators at Rocket February 13th
The Belleville Senators return to the ice this afternoon in Montreal for the second of four matches against Laval Rocket.
The Sens didn't see victory in their season opener last night, and are back again today after the 5-1 loss.
The Sens will have Kevin Mandolese in goal tonight in his American Hockey League debut, backed up by Joey Daccord.
Zach Magwood, Robert Calisti, Jack Dougherty, Clark Bishop, Cole Reindhardt, Jonathan Davidsson, Jack Kopacka and Cedrick Andree are out for Belleville.
Belleville is 18-13-1-2 all-time against the Rocket but fell to the team last night.
Today is the second of four straight games between the two sides in Montreal.
Who to Watch:
Kevin Mandolese will be making his AHL debut after 4 seasons with the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles of the QMJHL. The Blainville Quebec native was a round 6 #157th overall pick by the Ottawa Senators in the 2018 NHL Entry Draft.
Cole Cassels is back on the ice for Belleville this afternoon after 24 games with the team in 2019-20, where he collected 8 points.
