Senators News: November 26th

Jakob Silfverberg talked about his adjustment to the AHL:

You have to be so much quicker in everything you do. As soon as you get the puck, you have to know what you want to do with it. There’s not a lot of time to think, ‘Do I want to go there, or do I want to go there?’ I feel like I’ve played solid defence, but I haven’t been creating as much as I want offensively. I just have to keep working and not get frustrated.  [E]very game I learn something and I’m getting more and more comfortable out there. It was very exciting for me to come here to play. I’ve been playing in Sweden my whole life and I wanted to try something new. So now I’m here and I’m liking it a lot, learning new things and getting more experience as a hockey player.

You have to like Silfverberg‘s humility.  Luke Richardson added:

I think it’s been a big adjustment for them [Silfverberg and Zibanejad], but I can see they’re starting to get to know their surroundings a little bit, especially on the power play. They’re making plays in small areas quicker and getting used to it. But these guys also have a reputation following them. They’re world-class players, so people are trying to get on them quicker and give them no space. People recognize what they can do, so they’re ready for them. That makes it difficult for a guy.

-It’s time for me to eat some crow over my expectation that Shane Prince and Jean Gabriel-Pageau would be sent back to the CHL .  Given the number of forwards slated for Binghamton I thought both might be better served back in junior, but it seems clear they will remain in the AHL this season.

Corey Masisak names Robin Lehner the AHL first star for Saturday night’s games.

-Former B-Sen Mark Parrish has retired.
