OTTAWA - The Ottawa Senators reassigned defenceman Filip Novak to the club's American Hockey League affiliate, the Binghamton Senators.
The recall was Novak's second this season, in which he played eight games and recorded no points. The 23-year-old has played a total of 11 games with Ottawa this season, having totaled four penalty minutes and a -2 +/- rating.
In 63 games with Binghamton, Novak has recorded eight goals, 44 assists and 58 penalty minutes. The Czech Republic native ranks eighth amongst AHL defencemen in scoring with 52 points.
Novak was acquired by Ottawa from the Florida Panthers on Oct. 5, 2005 for future considerations and was immediately assigned to Binghamton.
Binghamton is fifth in the East Division with 35 wins, 33 losses, four overtime losses and four shootout losses for 78 points. The Senators return to action tonight (April 12), when they travel to Norfolk to face the Admirals.
