The Ottawa Senators on Tuesday recalled forward Mark Stone from the club’s American Hockey League affiliate, the Binghamton Senators.
He’s expected to be in the lineup Wednesday when the Senators face the Maple Leafs in Toronto.

Stone made his National Hockey League (and professional career) debut in Game 5 of last spring’s Eastern Conference NHL quarter-final playoff series against the New York Rangers. This recall is the first of Stone’s regular-season career.

In 38 AHL contests with Binghamton this season, the Winnipeg native has 21 points (eight goals, 13 assists) and 10 penalty minutes. He currently ranks second among active Binghamton players with a plus-15 rating.

Stone, 20, has appeared in two NHL post-season contests and has one assist on Jason Spezza’s game-winning goal in a 2-0 Ottawa victory last April 21 at Madison Square Garden.

A first team Western Hockey League all-star in each of the last two seasons, Stone’s four-season junior career with the Brandon Wheat Kings saw him collect 296 points (106 goals, 190 assists) over 232 contests.

The Senators’ sixth-round pick (178th overall) in the 2010 draft, Stone led Canada in goals (seven) and points (10) at the 2012 IIHF World Junior Hockey Championship in Alberta.
