Ottawa Senators announce plans to replace aging scoreboard at Scotiabank Place

OTTAWA - The Ottawa Senators announced on Friday that they will replace the scoreboard at Scotiabank Place with four high-definition screens and two LED rings.

The scoreboard's new look was unveiled at a news conference before the Senators game against the Pittsburgh Penguins, and alongside partners from Bell Canada and Scotiabank.

"I know our fans and our organization have waited a long time for this—and patience pays off," said Senators owner Eugene Melnyk. "The Bell HD Screen will be among the best in the NHL."

The HD screen will have 2,170 square feet of viewing space compared to the 300 square feet of the current scoreboard.

"This new scoreboard represents the latest in video technology and will, without a doubt, take our in-game entertainment and fan experience to a whole new level," said Melnyk. "The timing could not be better as we will have it fully installed in time for Ottawa's hosting of the 2012 NHL all-star game."

The dismantling of the current scoreboard will start immediately after the Senators host the Florida Panthers on Dec. 22. and the four main screens will be operational for the Senators' home game Dec. 27 against the Montreal Canadiens.

The installation of the LED rings will continue and the new scoreboard will be fully operational in time for the all-star skills competition, which will take place on Jan. 28.
