Bass was first called up on Nov. 19, recording five penalty minutes in four games. He was returned to the AHL following Ottawa’s 4-2 loss against the New York Islanders on Saturday, Nov. 29 to play with the Binghamton Senators in their 5-3 victory Sunday over Hamilton Bulldogs at the Bell Centre in Montreal.
The 21-year-old began the 2008-09 season with the Senators and was a healthy scratch for two games before being assigned to Binghamton on Oct. 7. In 17 games with the B-Sens, Bass has scored once and added one assist, while recording 39 penalty minutes.
Bass was Ottawa’s first fourth-round pick, 95th overall, in the 2003 NHL entry draft.
