A list of 49 players was announced by the Ottawa Senators on Sunday, September 8, 2001. The camp itself begins on Tuesday, September 11, with fitness and medical testing. Practices and intra-squad games will take place from Wednesday to Friday, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m, as the roster will be divided into two teams for the time being.
Out of the Hull tourney invitees, Antoine Vermette, Jason Spezza, Alexandre Giroux, Simon Lajeunesse, Ray Emery, Josh Langfield, Toni Dahlman, Chris Kelly, Scott Bala and Tim Gleason will participate at the training camp. The likes of Tessier, Konopka, Maleyko, Byfuglien, Platil, among others were promptly left off.
