The Ottawa Senators will be kicking off their 2013 season on Saturday Jan. 19 with a road game against the Winnipeg Jets.

The Senators return home on Monday Jan. 21 and will play the Florida Panthers. Check out the full Senators schedule.

The team will be looking to build on a relatively successful 2012 season. Bolstered by surprise scoring from young defenceman Erik Karlsson and streaky winger Milan Michalek, the Senators came close to eliminating the New York Rangers in the first round of the playoffs.

But there are plenty of question marks for the Senators in this shortened season. Can goaltender Craig Anderson replicate his respectable 33 wins from last season? Will 40-year-old captain Daniel Alfredsson be in fighting shape? And will Erik Karlsson come anywhere close to his 78-point season?
