The 1928–29 Ottawa Senators season was the club's 12th season in the NHL, 44th over-all. The Senators financial troubles would continue, as the team sold Punch Broadbent to the New York Americans. There were numerous rumours that the team was going to be sold to a group from Chicago, however Senators owner Frank Ahearn denied this, but admitted that the team was for sale to the highest bidder. Once again, for the second straight year, the Senators would play two "home" games in Detroit due to poor fan support when US-based teams would play games in Ottawa.

Regular seasonEdit

On the ice, the Senators struggled to score goals, scoring only 54, the fourth fewest in the league. Frank Finnigan would score 15 of them to lead the team, and finish with a club high 19 points. New captain King Clancy would score 13 goals to lead the defense. Midway through the season, the Sens traded long time player Buck Boucher to the Montreal Maroons in exchange for youngster Joe Lamb.

Alec Connell would be steady in the Senators net, winning 14 games, and have a GAA of 1.43, along with seven shutouts.

The Senators failed to qualify for the playoffs for the first time since 1925, as they finished in fourth place in the five-team Canadian Division.
