Former Dogs captain Alex Grant was traded by the Anaheim Ducks to the Ottawa Senators for Andre Petersson yesterday. Both are American Hockey League players and Grant has already been assigned to Ottawa’s affiliate in Binghamton.
Grant had seven goals and 20 assists in 52 AHL games with the Norfolk Admirals this season. The defenseman made his NHL debut with the Ducks in November and registered two goals in two games.
Binghamton currently sits third in the AHL’s Eastern Conference with a 33-19-1-3 record. Former Sea Dog Mike Hoffman, who is currently up with the NHL Senators, leads the AHL Senators in scoring.
Grant leaves a Norfolk team that features Kevin Gagne. Gagne, playing in his first pro season, has two goals and 14 assists in 52 games.
