OTTAWA – The Ottawa Senators (@Senators) announced today that the club has recalled forward Max McCormick on an emergency basis from its American Hockey League affiliate, the Binghamton Senators. The NHL recall is the first of his career.
McCormick, 23, has appeared in each of the B-Sens four games to date this season having recorded one point (one goal) and seven penalty minutes. A native of De Pere, Wis., he made his professional debut with Binghamton in 2014-15 and has registered 21 points (11 goals, 10 assists) and 140 penalty minutes over the first 66 games of his pro career.
Recognized as the Senators’ “hardest worker” at the conclusion of the team’s annual development camp this past July, McCormick was a co-recipient of the B-Sens Rookie of the Year award at the conclusion of last season.
Drafted by the Senators with their second sixth-round pick (171st overall) in the 2011 NHL Draft, McCormick spent three seasons with the Big Ten Conference’s Ohio State Buckeyes, where he recorded 88 points (36 goals, 52 assists) and 97 penalty minutes in 94 career collegiate contests.
The Senators return to action when they host the Arizona Coyotes for the only time this season on Saturday at 7 p.m.
