The 1993–94 Ottawa Senators season was the National Hockey League (NHL) club's second season. It was an improvement by the club, as they finished with 13 more points than in the 1992–93 expansion season, as the club ended the season with a 14–61–9 record for 37 points, however, they would finish with the worst record in hockey for the second consecutive year.

Regular season[edit | edit source]

Alexei Yashin, the Senators first pick in the 1992 NHL Entry Draft, had a very promising rookie season, setting franchise records with 30 goals, 49 assists, and 79 points. Alexandre Daigle, whom the Senators drafted with the first overall pick in the 1993 NHL Entry Draft, also had a very solid rookie season, recording 20 goals, 31 assists and 51 points to finish second to Yashin in team scoring.

Midway through the season, the Senators traded Bob Kudelski, who was having the best season on the team, registering 41 points (26 goals and 15 assists) in 42 games, to the Florida Panthers for Evgeny Davydov and Scott Levins. The trade hurt the Senators as Davydov struggled with the team, while Levins production also dropped after the deal.

Craig Billington played the majority of games in the Senators net, as he was acquired from the New Jersey Devils in a deal that sent Peter Sidorkiewicz to New Jersey, and Billington would go on and set the team record for wins in a season with 11.
