OTTAWA - The Ottawa Senators assigned left-winger/defenceman Christoph Schubert and defenceman Brian Lee to the club’s American Hockey League affiliate, the Binghamton Senators.

Schubert, Ottawa’s fourth-round pick (127th overall) in the 2001 draft, played in three pre-season games, recording eight penalty minutes. The 27-year-old native of Munich has been in the Senators organization for seven seasons, playing the last four in Ottawa and first three in Binghamton.

In 268 NHL games with the Senators, Schubert had 23 goals, 42 assists and 194 penalty minutes. He registered his best season in 2006-07, recording eight goals and 17 assists for 25 points. In three seasons with the B-Sens, Schubert had 14 goals, 40 assists and 181 penalty minutes in 216 AHL games. His last season in Binghamton was the 2004-05 campaign.

Lee, 22, split his first two pro seasons between Ottawa and Binghamton. In his rookie season, 2007-08, he had an assist in six games with Ottawa and three goals and 22 assists over 55 games with Binghamton. The Fargo, N.D., native played most of the 2008-09 season in Ottawa, adding two goals, 12 assists and 14 penalty minutes. Lee contributed 12 points (2 goals, 10 assists) and 41 penalty minutes over 27 games with the B-Sens last season.

Lee, Ottawa’s first-round pick (ninth overall) in the 2005 draft, played in four of the Senators’ six pre-season games.

The Senators camp roster is now comprised of 23 players: two goaltenders, seven defencemen and 14 forwards.
