OTTAWA - The Ottawa Senators (@Senators) announced today that the club has re-assigned defenceman Chris Wideman to its American Hockey League affiliate, the Binghamton Senators.
Wideman, who will turn 25 on Wednesday, did not appear in any games with Ottawa since being recalled to the NHL for the first time in his career on Saturday. He is in the midst of his third season of professional hockey with Binghamton and leads the B-Sens in scoring with 29 points (12 goals, 17 assists) while having appeared in all but one of the team’s 33 games to date.
A St. Louis native, Wideman has recorded 98 points (23 goals, 75 assists) and 177 penalty minutes over 165 career AHL games, all of which have occurred with the B-Sens. He was originally selected by Ottawa in the fourth round, 100th overall, of the 2009 NHL Draft.
The Senators return to action tomorrow evening when they visit the Flyers at Philadelphia’s Wells Fargo Center at 7 p.m.
