Shannon has appeared in two games for the Senators this season and has recorded one assist. He is tied for the team lead (Ilya Zubov
) among all Binghamton scorers with 35 points despite missing 11 games due to recall or injury. In addition to having scored 10 goals, his 25 assists led the B-Sens. He has also accumulated 16 penalty minutes while posting a +5 ranking, which places him third on the club.
The Senators acquired Shannon from the Vancouver Canucks in exchange for defenceman Lawrence Nycholat on Sept. 2
The native of Darien, Conn., split the 2007-08 campaign between Vancouver and its AHL affiliate, the Manitoba Moose. Shannon, who won the 2007 Stanley Cup with the Anaheim Ducks, recorded career NHL season highs in goals (5) and points (13) in 27 games with the Canucks. He joined Vancouver on June 23, 2007, following a trade with the Anaheim Ducks for Jason King and future considerations.
In 82 regular-season NHL games over three seasons, he has seven goals, 18 assists and 34 penalty minutes.
The Binghamton Senators (25-16-3-3) are next in action this evening when they host the San Antonio Rampage.
