Senators News: March 5th

-The Sens have recalled Mark Stone and he’s expected to be in the lineup tomorrow.  Yesterday the Sens sent Derek Grant back down to Binghamton.

Spez Dispenser takes an interesting look at where the Sens (and their opposition) are shooting and scoring from–lot’s of colour charts and it’s an interesting piece to read through.

Binghamton released Jean Bourbeau from his PTO, while signing Nick Craven to an ATO.  Craven‘s (25-16-17-33) season at Wesleyan is over where he served as the co-captain.  The 6’3, 22-year old was named the NESCAC MVP (you can read a little more about him here).

-For those wondering about the status of Brad Peltz, whose last game was with Trenton in the ECHL (January 11th), he’s on the B-Sens reserve list and eligible to return at any time (as seen here).

D. J. Powers college notebook references Sens prospects Bryce Aneloski and Jeff Costello, but offers nothing meaty to dig into.

-Roy MacGregor wrote two articles about recent polls indicating that Canadians want hockey to be safer which could include introducing body checking at a later age or making the rinks larger.  The most shocking thing to me was this:

67 per cent of hockey parents [surveyed] know someone who has suffered a concussion or serious head, neck, back or brain injury while playing hockey, as opposed to 32 per cent aware of such an injury from football, 16 per cent from soccer and 9 per cent from mixed martial arts.

That’s a staggering percentage and if it remains unchanged I’d have to think fewer parents will put their kids in hockey.
