OTTAWA - The Ottawa Senators
today recalled Matt Carkner
from the club’s American Hockey League affiliate, the Binghamton Senators
. The defenceman joined the B-Sens Dec. 1 on a conditioning assignment.
Carkner played three games with the B-Sens, recording one assist, six shots on goal and 11 penalty minutes. The 31-year-old is in his third full season with the Senators, but has yet to play in a regular-season contest this year following surgery on his right knee in September.
