SENATORS RECALL PATRICK EAVES FROM BINGHAMTON
Forward set to replace injured Mike Fisher in Saturday's lineup
OTTAWA - The Ottawa Senators recalled right-winger Patrick Eaves from the Binghamton Senators of the American Hockey League on an emergency basis to replace the injured Mike Fisher (sprained left shoulder). Eaves will be inserted into the Senators' lineup as they play host the Boston Bruins on Saturday, Oct. 15 (7 p.m.).
The recall is Eaves' second of the season. He was recalled for Ottawa's game Tuesday (Oct. 11) against Montreal and made his NHL debut as Ottawa downed the Canadiens 4-2 at the Bell Centre. In 14 shifts, Eaves recorded 11:25 of ice time, no shots and no penalty minutes.
The 21-year-old also appeared in Binghamton's season-opening 4-3 overtime loss to the Philadelphia Phantoms last Saturday (Oct. 8) and did not record a point.
The Fairbault, Minn., native had three assists in four pre-season games with the Ottawa Senators before being assigned to Binghamton on Sept. 21.
Eaves was Ottawa's first-round pick, 29th overall, in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft.
