- The Ottawa Senators today re-assigned goaltender Mike Brodeur to the club’s American Hockey League affiliate, the Binghamton Senators. He was recalled Thursday on an emergency basis to replace injured Pascal Leclaire.
Brodeur, 27, served as back-up to Brian Elliott in Ottawa’s 2-1 over the Predators in Nashville on Thursday. He was first recalled to back-up Elliott in Ottawa’s 3-2 loss to the Washington Capitals on Dec. 19.
The Calgary native appeared in Binghamton’s 5-1 home-opening win on Oct. 8 against Adirondack, playing 55 minutes and stopping 27 of 28 shots before a collision with a teammate forced him to leave the game.
Brodeur was first assigned to the Senators’ East Coast Hockey League affiliate, the Elmira Jackals, on Nov. 4. He recorded one win and one loss in two games before returning to Binghamton on Nov. 8.
Prior to his first recall to Ottawa, Brodeur was assigned for conditioning to the Jackals and turned aside 30 shots in a 5-0 shutout victory over Toledo in his most recent game action on Dec. 18. He now has a 2-1-0 record in three games with Elmira this season.
