Senators Recall Goaltender Mike Brodeur From Binghamton (AHL)

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Nov. 24, 2009) - The Ottawa Senators recalled goaltender Mike Brodeur on an emergency basis from the club's American Hockey League affiliate, the Binghamton Senators.

Brodeur, 26, has appeared in 15 of 20 games this season with Binghamton, posting a 5-4-1 record with two shutouts, a 2.92 goals-against average and an .898 save percentage.

The 6-2, 190-pound Brodeur was recently selected as the Reebok/AHL Player of the Week for the period ending Nov. 8, turning aside 94-of-96 shots in three appearances (2-1-0) that week while recording a 0.67 goals-against average and a .929 save percentage.

The Calgary native is in his first season with the B-Sens after posting an 18-13-4 record with a 2.45 goals-against average in 38 AHL games with the Rochester Americans in 2008-09. Brodeur also played in eight games for the ECHL's Augusta Lynx last season, posting a 2-4-1 record with a 3.02 goals-against average and .919 save percentage.

Currently in his sixth professional season, Brodeur was selected in the seventh round (211th overall) by the Chicago Blackhawks in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft. On Feb. 17, 2008, Brodeur was recalled to the NHL by Chicago for one day, but did not see any game action.

The Senators next see action Wednesday, Nov. 25, when they visit the New Jersey Devils. The B-Sens host the Adirondack Phantoms in their next game on Thursday, Nov. 26.
