Video: Ottawa Senators Brushing Up On Their Fighting Skills

The Ottawa Senators lost Mark Borowiecki to free agency as he signed with the Nashville Predators. Certified tough guy, Chris Neil, retired in 2017. The Sens roster is full of gritty players who are willing to drop the mitts, but they no longer have a team enforcer. 

The Senators roster is filled with rising stars, but only Brady Tkachuk has proven that he can hold his own. Erik Gudbranson and Auston Watson aren't the toughest guys in the league, but you definitely wouldn't look forward to fighting them. They have become the team's defacto protectors and have brushed up on their skills in practice.
