Senators assign Pageau to AHL

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

He scores 50 goals, they go in, they go in, and they go in. And I think, 'Why can't I do that?'

— Capitals forward Brooks Laich on teammate Alex Ovechkin, who scored his 50th goal of the season Tuesday in a 4-2 win vs. the Hurricanes
