(UPDATE 9:31 AM)- According to Corey Pronman on Twitter, the Binghamton Senators have signed defenceman Brett Lebda to a PTO. Lebda has 397 games of NHL experience with the Red Wings, Leafs and Blue Jackets. Sens morning skate comes at 10:15 AM. Game day post will follow shortly after that.
After consecutive losses at the hands of the Carolina Hurricanes and the Montreal Canadiens, the Sens are looking to a Binghamton call up to help spark the offence.
This morning the Senators announced they have called up forward Stephane Da Costa from the AHL Senators. Da Costa has appeared in 31 games with the BSens, racking up 9 goals and 15 assists along the way.
With Jason Spezza sidelined for the next couple months, the Senators are desperate for someone to help fill the void. Peter Regin has been auditioning as the team’s second line centre and has been rather quiet. Da Costa is a player with high end skill that should help generate a little more offence, both at 5 on 5 and on the power play.
Da Costa appeared in 22 games with the Senators last season, scoring three times and picking up five points along the way.
The Sens are scheduled to practice at noon at Scotiabank Place. They take on the Buffalo Sabres tomorrow night.
