More goaltending injuries

Why can’t the goaltenders in the Ottawa Senators organization stay healthy and what’s a Zane Kalemba?

Why can’t the goaltenders in the Ottawa Senators organization stay healthy and what’s a Zane Kalemba?

Those two questions come to mind after 19-year-old rookie Robin Lehner missed all three games for Binghamton of the American Hockey League last weekend due to an undisclosed injury.

Meanwhile, Mike Brodeur, now playing for the Elmira Jackels of the ECHL, has suffered yet another setback while trying to recover from early season concussion problems.
Lehner’s injury forced Barry Brust to see all the action for Binghamton last weekend — a 5-1 win over Scranton Friday, a 4-3 loss to Toronto Saturday and an 8-3 defeat to Hershey on Sunday — while Kalemba, a Princeton University grad, was signed to a professional tryout contract in order to serve as an emergency back-up.
On a more positive note, Corey Locke has taken over the American Hockey League scoring lead, with six goals and 17 assists in 16 games. Bobby Butler now leads the AHL with 12 goals and Jim O’Brien is second on Binghamton with eight goals.

However, rookie defenceman Patrick Wiercioch is struggling, with one goal, no assists and a plus/minus rating of minus 11 after 14 games.
