The Ottawa Jr. Senators are back again, but the defending Fred Page Cup champions will be in tough if they hope to book a return trip to Canada’s National Junior A Championship.

The lowest win percentage in the regular season among the four competing teams belonged to the Jr. Senators, who weren’t too shabby at .694, while the Titan de Princeville (.729), Amherst Ramblers (.720) and Yarmouth Mariners (.720) all ranked among the top 16 teams in the CJHL.

The Ramblers will be well-rested after a hard-luck loss to South Shore in the MHL quarter-finals (they lost three double-overtime games, including Game 7), while the Jr. Senators, Titan and Mariners will look to continue red-hot postseason runs. The three league champions went a combined 24-5 in their semifinals and league finals.
