The Ottawa Senators set their opening-night roster Monday by sending 29 players to their American Hockey League affiliate.

Among those sent to the Binghamton Senators was center Mika Zibanejad, who had seven goals and 13 assists in 42 games last season, and played in all 10 games for the team during the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Also sent down were defensemen Ben Blood, Mark Borowiecki, Cody Ceci, Fredrik Claesson, Tyler Eckford, Daniel New, Troy Rutkowski, Michael Sdao and Chris Wideman; forwards Corey Cowick, Jakub Culek, David Dziurzynski, Derek Grant, Wacey Hamilton, Danny Hobbs, Mike Hoffman, Ludwig Karlsson, Darren Kramer, Jim O'Brien, Andre Petersson, Shane Prince, Matt Puempel, Buddy Robinson, Cole Schneider and Mark Stone; and goaltenders Scott Greenham, Andrew Hammond and Nathan Lawson.

In addition forward Curtis Lazar, the 17th pick of the 2013 NHL Draft, was returned to his junior team, the Edmonton Oil Kings of the Western Hockey League.

Playing for my favorite team growing up, I've probably scored that goal a million times in my driveway. It feels good to actually do it in real life.
