The Ottawa Senators assigned forward Jean-Gabriel Pageau to the Binghamton Senators of the American Hockey League on Thursday.

Pageau, 20, started the 2013-14 season with Ottawa and had one goal in eight games.

He has three goals and five points in 17 career NHL games, and made a big impact in Game 3 of the 2013 Eastern Conference Quarterfinals. His hat trick in the Senators' 6-2 win against the Montreal Canadiens made him only the second Ottawa player, after longtime captain Daniel Alfredsson, to score three goals in a playoff game. In 10 Stanley Cup Playoff games, Pageau has four goals, six points and eight penalty minutes.

Pageau was the Senators' fourth-round selection (No. 96) in the 2011 NHL Draft. He made his NHL debut last season after scoring 29 points in 69 games for Binghamton.

Quote of the Day

I don't think it's really truly going to sink in until we drop the puck, to be honest. I know there's going to be a lot of smoke and mirrors with the media attention and all that. We came [Monday] and it was sort of a light day to get things organized. We just want to focus in on the business aspect, the game itself. That's what we're preparing to do. Get these next couple of days out of the way and it's game on.
