OTTAWA – The Ottawa Senators (@Senators) announced today that the club has recalled forward Buddy Robinson from its American Hockey League affiliate, the Binghamton Senators. The NHL recall is the first of his career.
A native of Bellmawr, N.J., Robinson is in the midst of completing his third full professional season after originally signing a three-year entry-level contract with Ottawa on March 25, 2013. In 59 games with the B-Sens this season, he has registered 22 points (13 goals, nine assists) in addition to 49 penalty minutes.
Signed as a collegiate free agent following his sophomore season with Lake Superior State University, Robinson, 24, has appeared in 209 American Hockey League contests (all of which have occurred with the B-Sens), recording 91 points (42 goals, 49 assists) and 175 penalty minutes. He established new professional career highs in assists (22) and points (34) last season while leading the B-Sens with a plus/minus rating of plus-12 and tying for the team-lead (Jean-Gabriel Pageau) with three shorthanded goals.
The Senators return to action tomorrow evening when they host the Pittsburgh Penguins at 7:30 p.m.
