Binghamton Senators forward Stephane Da Costa named AHL player of the week

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. - Binghamton Senators forward Stephane Da Costa was named American Hockey League player of the week Monday after leading his team to three victories last week.

Da Costa, a third-year pro from Paris, France, had seven points (two goals and five assists) over the stretch.

The 24-year-old centre has 12 points (3-9) in 10 games with Binghamton this season. He also played in four games for the NHL's Ottawa Senators but did not record a point.

Da Costa has seven points (4-3) in 39 career NHL games. He was signed as a free agent by the Senators in March 2011.

Quote of the Day

That's a really tough thing to play through; when you finally are thrown out there, the game is fast, intense, every single play matters, you've got to find a way to play through that and make smart plays. So it's a huge testament to [Vermette] and some other individuals in our locker room that are putting their own ego, their own wants and needs aside, and are ready for those opportunities when they do come.
