AGE: 32 HT: 6-foot-4 WT: 233 lbs.

2008-09 STATS: 62 GP 17 G 23 A 40 P 76 PIMs

THE SKINNY: Third-round choice (71st overall) of the Devils in 1994 ... Signed as a free agent by Edmonton July 12, 2007 ... In 38 career games vs. the Senators, has six goals, seven assists and 54 PIMs ... Leads the Oilers this season with 213 shots on goal ... Best season was 2006-07, when he had 26 goals and 38 assists for the Habs ... Is six games shy of 600 in his NHL career ... Born in Elk Point, Alta. ... Has three additional seasons and $14.5 million left on his contract.

NOTE WORTHY

The Senators recalled F Peter Regin, who's expected to step into the spot previously occupied by Antoine Vermette, alongside Chris Kelly. Mike Comrie will likely round out that line ... Almost lost in the kerfuffle over his fight with Dion Phaneuf Tuesday was that Jason Spezza had another disappointing game. He was a minus-3 and charged with four giveaways to the Flames ... The Senators are 8-12-4-0 all-time vs. the Oilers, including a 4-5-2-0 mark in Ottawa ... Brian Lee's first NHL goal was the winner as the Senators beat the Oilers 3-2 Dec. 30 in Edmonton. Martin Gerber, now a Maple Leaf, was the winning goalie ... As usual, G Dwayne Roloson is expected to start for Edmonton tonight. Brian Elliott is likely to start for Ottawa.
