Bulletin: Senators cancell emergency recall on Eaves

Eaves earns first assist in second NHL game


OTTAWA - The Ottawa Senators cancelled the emergency recall on right-winger Patrick Eaves following the club's 5-1 win over the Boston Bruins at the Corel Centre Saturday. Eaves rejoins the Binghamton Senators of the American Hockey League.


Binghamton's record dropped to 0-1-1 after losing 5-4 at home Saturday to the Bridgeport Sound Tigers.


Eaves, 21, earned his first NHL point, playing in his second game, when he assisted on Ottawa's fifth goal by Bryan Smolinski. He saw 11:31 of ice-time over 16 shifts and had two shots on goal.


The Fairbault, Minn. native re-joined the NHL club Friday after first replacing centre Mike Fisher in Ottawa's 4-2 win against the Montreal Canadiens Tuesday, Oct. 12. Fisher, who is still sidelined, suffered a left shoulder injury in the first period of Ottawa's 6-5 shoot-out victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs at the Corel Centre on Monday, Oct. 10.


Eaves was Ottawa's first-round pick, 29th overall, in the 2003 NHL entry draft.
