The Ottawa Senators today recalled on an emergency basis goaltender Mike Brodeur from the club’s American Hockey League affiliate, the Binghamton Senators.
Brodeur, 27, was first recalled to serve as back-up to Brian Elliott in Ottawa’s 3-2 loss to the Washington Capitals on Dec. 19. He replaced injured Pascal Leclaire.
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 on Dec. 18. He now has a 2-1-0 record in three games with Elmira this season.
