Found April 10, 2013 on The 6th Sens:
In somewhat of an eyebrow raising move, the Ottawa Senators recalled Jean-Gabriel Pageau from the Binghamton Senators this afternoon. It's unexpected in the sense that Milan Michalek's skating again with the team and many have speculated that he could make a return as soon as tomorrow night in Philadelphia. Pageau's presence gives the roster 14 forwards, 15 if you count Michalek as being 'close'. To this point, I have yet to see the organization announce an injury or make a corresponding roster move.

Will Erik Karlsson return this season

Don Brennan of the Ottawa Sun:People were stunned that the Senators would use a first-round pick to draft a 150-lb. defenceman from Sweden in the first place, never mind that, two years later and only a few meatballs heavier, the same kid would score 45 points in his rookie NHL season. Nobody dreamed that, the very next October, at the tender age of 21, he would begin a march to...

Ottawa Senators In Survival Mode

from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN, The Ottawa Senators woke up Thursday morning in a frightful three-way tie on points with both the New York Rangers and Islanders, just two points clear of the danger spot held by Winnipeg.
