Emery Recalled By Ottawa
The Ottawa Senators recalled goalkeeper Ray Emery from the Binghamton Senators of the American Hockey League (AHL) Sunday on an emergency basis.
Emery will take the place of Patrick Lalime who is out of the Senators line-up due to a left knee sprain suffered on Saturday (March 27).
Emery has played in 49 of the B-Sens 74 games this season, recording 20 wins, 22 losses and five ties for a 2.54 goals-against-average and a 91.9 save-percentage. Teammate Billy Thompson has seen action in 32 games and holds a 12-13-2 record.
Today’s recall is Emery’s sixth of the season. The Hamilton native has made one start for Ottawa this season, recording the win against Chicago on Dec. 18 and making 27 saves (6-1 win). He has also served as back-up to Patrick Lalime or Martin Prusek on eight occasions.
The Binghamton Senators currently sit fifth in the East division with a 32-32-7-3 record. The Senators next game will be Friday (April 2) when they play in Norfolk.
