Hey there, this isn’t my usual kind of post, but I thought it was a really cool idea, and it’s put together after years of work from some local Ottawa peeps! This would be perfect for any Sens fan so I thought I’d pass it along, as we can all use a bit of Sens pride these days!
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Local Author Maps Out History of the Modern-Day Ottawa Senators with Special Focus on Jerseys
OTTAWA, ON, January 15, 2019 — Chris Delorme, a local author who first released The History of the NHL Hockey Jersey, 1983-1993, in 2015, a book that outlines in great detail the history and evolution of the NHL’s hockey jerseys during a pivotal time period in marketing and production, has set his focus on the hometown club, similarly mapping out with great detail the history and evolution of the modern-day Ottawa Senators jerseys, players, and franchise.
The Story Behind the Story
Once again teaming up with Production Assistant, Hilary Chaiton, Chris first met with several local Sens fans and game-worn jersey collectors. Ryan Plue, his brother Jonathan Plue, Marc Gratton, and Kevin Lee provided access to the bulk of the jerseys and historical memorabilia, while Jon and Denis Rouleau, Tim Wiliton, Chris Mustakas, and Chris Atack provided complimentary pieces to help round out the collection and story.
A Complete Guide to all Things Sens
Using over 350 high resolution images, the book aims to highlight the complete evolution of the team’s jerseys but goes so much further: season by season summations, player write-ups, fun facts and ‘Alfie Trivia’ throughout, all-time season records, all-time captains and franchise leaders, all-time minor league affiliates, stats, stats, and more stats. All told, The History of the Sens Jersey, 1992-2018, serves as a complete guide to 25+ years of the modern-day Ottawa Senators franchise!
Simply put – if you’re a Sens fan, this is a must-have #1 resource.
About the Series
Following the release of the first book which highlights the history and evolution of NHL jerseys between 1983-1993, Chris Delorme and Hilary Chaiton started working on the next decade of NHL jerseys, but quickly recognized the potential to write team specific books. Subsequently, while writing The History of the Sens Jersey, 1992-2018, Chris was also travelling to meet up with Pittsburgh Penguins collectors, and has since drafted The History of the Pens Jersey, 1967-2018, highlighting 50+ years of the Pittsburgh Penguins franchise. The Pens iteration is expected for release in 2019, while The History of the NHL Hockey Jersey, 1994-2004, a current work in progress, should be available in 2020.
