New addition Bobby Ryan had a goal and an assist to help the Ottawa Senators defeat the Winnipeg Jets at MTS Centre. Ryan, acquired in one of the biggest trades of the offseason just hours after captain Daniel Alfredsson signed with the new division rival Detroit Red Wings, skated on a line with Jason Spezza and Milan Michalek, which is where he figures to start the season.
Michalek also had a goal and an assist, and Spezza added an assist on Michalek's goal. Defenseman Erik Karlsson had a pair of assists, and goaltender Robin Lehner made 17 saves in 40 minutes of work.
Matt Halischuk had the lone goal for the Jets. Michael Hutchinson, who joined the Winnipeg organization on a one-year contract in the offseason from Boston, stopped 29 of 32 shots in net.
