HOFFMAN SENT DOWN; PETERSEN HAS BIG NIGHT
After living every players’ dream of playing in Dundas, Ontario, the Ottawa Senators have sent Mike Hoffman to the American Hockey League.
The Senators announced the cut this morning just prior to the Binghamton Senators posting there training camp roster.
Other players re-assigned include goaltenders Mike Brodeur and Barry Brust; defencemen André Benoit, Eric Gryba, Geoff Kinrade and Craig Schira; and forwards Jason Bailey, Erik Condra, Corey Cowick, Kaspars Daugavins, David Dziurzynski, Colin Greening, Jim O’ Brien, Tim Spencer and Roman Wick.
The Senators lost to the Buffalo Sabres 2-1 last night in the annual Kraft Hockeyville game, played in Dundas, Ont. this year. There is no box score of the game available.
Hoffman is expected to play for the baby Senators this season after a solid training camp in Ottawa. Part of Binghamton training camp is being held Newfoundland this year.
PETERSEN BEGINS WITH A BANG
The Wilkes-Barre Scranton Penguins began their pre-season last night, suffering a 7-6 shootout loss against the Syracuse Crunch.
Former Sea Dogs forward Nick Petersen (pictured) quietly had an impressive game, recording three assists on the night.
Marco Cousineau started in net for the Crunch, sporting the same pads as he did in Saint John last season.
