The Ottawa Jr. Senators were all set to begin their Central Canada Jr. ‘A’ Hockey League season with a new coach, and now they’ll have to start it with a new new head coach following Peter Ambroziak’s resignation.

Ambroziak had been hired after the conclusion of last season when the Jr. Sens missed the league playoffs by just one point. Ambroziak notified the club of his resignation prior to training camp but stayed on to run the camp along with assistants Martin Dagenais and Darren Graff, who will take over his duties on an interim basis.

The dual coach and general manager resigned for “personal reasons”, says a post on the club’s web site.

“His professionalism and integrity are absolutely beyond reproach,” club president Fred Crouch adds. “We were fortunate to have him for the period of time we did. He and his family will always have a home here with the Hockey Club.”

The club signals that it has interviewed several candidates and expects to announce a replacement “in the not too distant future.” Ottawa opens its CCHL season at 5:15 p.m. Saturday against Smiths Falls at the Kanata recreation center.
