After years of almost-but-not-quite finishes in the Central Canada Hockey League, including consecutive losses in the league final, the Ottawa Jr. Senators finally climbed the mountain this season.

Ottawa posted the best regular-season record in franchise history, going 46-9-7 before beating Pembroke, Brockville and Carleton Place in the playoffs, ending the Canadians’ four-year reign as league champions, avenging its 2016 and 2017 losses and claiming its first Bogart Cup in 16 years.

The Jr. Senators were the class of the field at the Fred Page Cup on home ice, going unbeaten in the preliminary round before running Longueuil by a 10-1 in the final to win the East Region title.
