Dan Séguin first started at CBC Ottawa in 1990, covering the NHL expansion meetings that saw Ottawa awarded a franchise, the Grey Cup win for the Ottawa Redblacks in 2016 and two national championships for the Ottawa 67’s.

Dan Séguin is at the 18th hole of a long career in Ottawa sports journalism, and he's heading for the 19th.
