A day after demoting forward Mike Hoffman to Binghamton, the Ottawa Senators have announced they have recalled Jean Gabriel Pageau in time for tonight’s game against the Sabres.
Since the demotion of Derek Grant, the Senators have struggled a little bit with their line combinations, Zibanejad looks like he can play a regular shift with the top six forwards but with only four centres on the roster, Zibanejad was starting most games on the team’s fourth line. Having Pageau in the line up will give Paul MacLean a few more options when he sets his line up tonight against the Sabres.
Marc Methot missed the game day skate and apparently will not play tonight. Down a couple guys on the blueline, the Senators have also recalled defenceman Cody Ceci. He is expected to make his NHL debut tonight.
Game Day post coming in a little bit.
