Petersson to NHL Senators?
The Senators haven’t made any official announcement yet, but a report out of Sweden Monday claimed that prospect Andre Petersson will be recalled from Binghamton and join the team in Toronto Tuesday.
Petersson, chosen 109th overall in the 2008 draft, has four goals and seven assists in his past six games with the Senators American Hockey League affiliate. In 30 games with Binghamton this season, he has 12 goals and 13 assists.
The Senators are at a bare minimum of forwards as they embark on their six-game road trip and Petersson could provide some insurance. Or, there could be a counter move with an existing forward shipped back to Binghamton to clear room for Petersson.
Kaspars Daugavins is the only current forward with a two-way contract, paying him a vastly reduced salary when playing in the minors.
