That’s just how excited our team is and we have a full belief with our group that we can take that next step and it’s going to be a lot of fun.” He is also looking forward to seeing his brother much more often this year. Matthew was traded to Florida this summer in a blockbuster deal with the Calgary Flames.

  • OTT Goaltender #33
    Cam Talbot wasn’t looking to be traded.
    Talbot is happy to be part of the Ottawa Senators, but he also wants to set the record straight about what happened during his final days in Minnesota. After the Wild re-signed Marc-Andre Fleury, there was speculation that it would create a goaltending controversy if Talbot wasn’t dealt. Initially Wild GM Bill Guerin shot against that idea, but when he did trade Talbot to Ottawa, he cited a desire to avoid “awkwardness” as part of his motivation. That’s understandable given that both netminders were looking to be starters, but Talbot still wasn’t asking to be traded. “I didn’t really want to be moved,” Talbot said. “It played out in the media that maybe I had some ill will toward the organization or something like that. It wasn’t like that at all.” Regardless, he was dealt and is now projected to be the Senators’ starter while Minnesota will feature Fleury in net.

His scoring prowess has already shown to be a considerable asset for us and one that will help us reach the next level. His dedication and the pride he takes in his physical conditioning will serve as a great example for our next wave of young players.” Norris was a restricted free agent after completing his entry-level contract. He produced personal bests in just about every category in 2021-22, while generating 35 goals and 55 points in 66 games.
