Senators Recall Mark Stone (Murray Speaks)

(UPDATE 4:09 PM)-  I've added a video to the top of this post that is a must listen.  Sylvain St-Laurent did a great job in a sit down interview with Senators GM Bryan Murray and the audio of that exchange has been made available on Youtube.  Murray really lays out the team's approach leading up to the trade deadline next month. 

Yesterday it was talked about and this morning it became official.

The Ottawa Senators announced they have recalled forward Mark Stone from Binghamton of the American Hockey League.  In 38 AHL games, Stone has racked up 8 goals and 21 points.  With the Sens offence struggling, the team is hoping Stone can provide a spark.

The Senators are on the ice for practice this morning in Ottawa at 11:00 AM so we'll have an idea where Paul MacLean plans to use Stone.  With the team struggling to create offence, you would assume Stone finds his way into the top six forwards.

The Sens are also hoping Milan Michalek will be available for tomorrow's game.  Will provide updates from practice as they become available.

Here is the official news release on the Mark Stone call up.
