The Senators have recalled tough guy Francis Lessard from their AHL affiliate in Binghamton to suit up in LW Jarrko Ruutuís spot on the roster.

The 6-foot-3, 224-pound Lessard has 187 penalty minutes in only 36 games this season with the Baby Sens.

It just so happens the Senators play the Leafs Saturday night in Round 5 of the Battle of Ontario at the ACC.
