Christoph Schubert is going to be yelling 'Bingo!', though he might not be too happy about it.

The Senators defenceman is headed for the club's AHL affiliate in Binghamton after clearing NHL waivers today at noon.

Schubert will make his $900,000 salary in the minors until the club decides to bring him back up or gives him the opportunity to play for somebody else at half price. GM Bryan Murray tried unsuccessfully to deal Schubert before making the decision to waive him.

"I'm going to go down there with a good attitude," said Schubert. "To ask for a trade would be a quitter and I don't want to be a quitter."

Schubert was on the ice before practice this morning but left when the rest of the players arrived on the ice. The club has also decided to move defenceman Brian Lee, who is on a two-way contract, to Binghamton. He skated as the eighth defenceman in camp today with Alex Picard.

Coach Cory Clouston said there will be more moves over the next couple of days as the team gets its roster down to 23 players for the start of the NHL regular season. The Senators open at the New York Rangers on Saturday.
