The Ottawa Senators placed left wing Denis Hamel on waivers Friday afternoon, perhaps paving the way for his return to Binghamton.
If no other NHL team claims Hamel by noon on Saturday, he will be eligible to be re-assigned to Binghamton, where he scored a franchise-record 56 goals last season.
I agree with Metal. Besides Hamel worked his ass off to make the team. He most likely is happy to GET 4 or 5 minutes of playing time in the NHL then a lot more time in the AHL.
I'm here in Bingo too, season ticket holder, and am just as disappointed as you. However, I think JUST having Denis come back isn't really gonna help all that much, IMO. I know it doesn't happen often but I would LOVE to see Cameron get sacked and bring in a new coach who knows what the heck he is doing BEFORE the end of the season.
:smily698: Tomorrow too soon?
Welcome back Josh. See you Friday! :smily698:
He's good at ECHL level but when he jumps up to the AHL he can't cut it. He's got great size and doesn't use. He's never really stuck with a team either.
???????????????? Not a good choice?
No, he was one of the original B-Sens assigned by Ottawa after training camp. When Chanse was assigned to Elmira, he fought at the end of a game and was suspended by the league for 2 games. After the suspension was over, he didn't return to Elmira or Binghamton. I think the guy you are thinking of is Mike Sgroi. He signed a 25 game tryout as Fitzpatrick was assigned to Elmira. I believe they are trying to work things out so he can stay.
The Binghamton Senators today released winger Chanse Fitzpatrick from his American Hockey League contract.
Fitzpatrick, a 22-year-old-native of Cornwall, Prince Edward Island, had one goal and 37 penalty minutes in twelve games with Binghamton.
Binghamton’s next game is on Friday, Dec. 22, when they travel to Philadelphia to take on the Phantoms at 7:05 p.m. Fans can purchase tickets at the following locations: Broome County Veterans Memorial Arena box office (Monday – Friday, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. and Saturday, 12 p.m. – 5 p.m.), Binghamton Senators executive office, third floor of the Arena (Monday – Friday, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. and on game days until the end of the second period.), www.binghamtonsenators.com or by calling (607) 722-SENS.

The 24-year-old also collected one assist and two penalty minutes in one game with Manitoba (AHL) this season.

The Ottawa Senators today recalled left-winger Danny Bois from the American Hockey League's Binghamton Senators on an emergency basis to play in his first NHL game tonight against the Washington Capitals at the Verizon Center. He will replace captain Daniel Alfredsson, who suffered a lower body injury in the Senators 4-2 win over the New York Islanders on Tuesday.
Bois, a 23-year-old native of Thunder Bay, Ont., has eight goals, five assists and 36 penalty minutes over 17 games with Binghamton this season. He has nine points (6+3=9) in the last eight games. Bois missed six games because of a face laceration.
After a four-year junior career with the Ontario Hockey League’s London Knights, Bois signed with the Senators as a free agent in April 2004. In three professional seasons in Ottawa’s organization, he has 68 points (42 goals and 26 assists) and 547 penalty minutes over 168 AHL games. He was originally drafted by Colorado in the third round, 97th overall, in the 2001 NHL draft.
BINGHAMTON -- He may have been feeling "a little bit not all there," but the important thing Thursday was that goalie Kelly Guard was in fact there with the Binghamton Senators.
The morning after being carried off on a gurney in the third period of Binghamton's 6-2 loss at Lowell, Guard was out of the hospital and back at Broome County Veterans Memorial Arena, though he did not practice.
The B-Sens (6-13-0-2) have listed Guard, who was kneed in the head Wednesday night, as day-to-day, though he said he didn't expect to dress for tonight's 7:05 home game against Syracuse (5-14-0-1).
"Just the normal symptoms of getting your bell rung," said Guard, who was told he lost consciousness for 20 to 25 seconds.
"It's an injury we've just got to keep an eye on," said B-Sens coach Dave Cameron, who would not specify the exact injury. "It's in the neck and head area. It's going to be day-to-day."
Tom Mitchell, B-Sens executive vice president of operations, said Thursday evening that the team expected to sign 23-year-old goalie Scott Gray to a tryout contract this morning.
Gray, an Ontario native, has played two games this season with the United Hockey League's Quad City Mallards. In 49 minutes, he posted a 4.83 goals-against average and .879 save percentage.
"Any time you see a guy get carried off on a stretcher, it's no fun for our team, their team and hockey in general," B-Sens rookie goalie Jeff Glass said.
"That's pretty scary. But we're glad to see that he's OK, and that he's moving around fine."
Guard was injured on what he termed "a partial breakaway," when he said Lowell's Rod Pelley drove the net, shot the puck and was then pushed into him.
Guard was taken to Saints Medical Center in Lowell, Mass., and said he was released around 11 p.m. He returned to Binghamton with the team.
"I don't think it's really that bad," Guard said later. "I'm just going to go see what (athletic therapist Domenic Nicoletta) says, go by him, do the rehab and go from there."
With Guard likely out for tonight's game, Glass is expected to start for the B-Sens.
Glass earned his first win of the season in impressive fashion last Friday, shutting out Bridgeport 1-0 on the road. But he was pulled from the first period of Saturday's 6-5 shootout win over Wilkes-Barre/Scranton after allowing four goals on 10 shots. (Cameron said afterward one of those four was "suspect.")
"That's hockey," said Glass, who stopped three of five shots Wednesday in relief of Guard. "And it seems like that's the way the season's been going for me personally, and for the team especially.
"So we're just going to try to get a little more consistent here, and pull the goods out of the weekend, and try and forget about the bads. And so, like you said, I felt I played well on Friday, and I'm going to get out there and try to repeat that effort if I play again (tonight)."
The Lowell Devils tallied three power-play markers, while also collecting four goals in the last period on their way to a 6-2 victory over the Binghamton Senators on Wednesday night in Lowell, Massachusetts.
The Senators offense was held in check until the third period, as Ryan Vesce struck on the power play for his fourth tally of the season to make it a 4-1 contest.
Justin Papineau answered for the Devils, as he collected his second goal of the night just thirty seconds after the Vesce tally. Papineau ended the night with four points (2+2=4) as he earned first star honors.
After two additional Lowell markers, Serge Payer buried his third marker of the season.
Binghamton Senators goalie Kelly Guard was replaced by Jeff Glass at 11:55 of the third period, as Guard took a knee to the head during a Lowell break.
Lowell goalie Jordan Parise, who collected 42 saves against the Senators on Nov. 4, ended the night with 37 saves.
The Senators return home on Friday to host the Syracuse Crunch. Good seats are still available for Friday’s game against Syracuse. Fans can purchase tickets at the following locations: Broome County Veterans Memorial Arena box office (Monday – Friday, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. and Saturday, 12 p.m. – 5 p.m.), Binghamton Senators executive office, third floor of the Arena (Monday – Friday, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. and on game days until the end of the second period.), www.binghamtonsenators.com or by calling (607) 722-SENS.
I hear Sgroi may not be sticking around because Binghamton wants or needs Ottawa to sign him to an AHL contract. I hope to God it works out, he got the the team pumped last night.
Speaking with some of the players after the game, they believe they are clicking as a team now and for us to expect more games like tonight.
Here's hoping they are correct.
