The shuttle from Binghamton to Ottawa is being kept busy.
With centre Jesse Winchester not ready to return from a knee injury, the Senators recalled centre Jim O’Brien from their AHL affiliate Wednesday to suit up against the Florida Panthers tonight at 7 p.m. (Scotiabank Place).
“He’s gone down there, his attitude has been in the right place and that’s allowed him to have success,” said coach Cory Clouston. “He’s continued to improve. Sometimes, guys get sent down and they tend to have a bit of a lapse. He hasn’t had that. Each time he has gone down there, he has improved his game.”

If he’s ready to come back, then defenceman Andre Benoit has to be returned to Binghamton because he was on an emergency recall.
Coach Cory Clouston confirmed Craig Anderson will make his first home start since being acquired.
EMERY BACK: Former Senators G Ray Emery’s conditioning stint with Syracuse of the AHL is over. He has been recalled by the Anaheim Ducks and will dress as the backup against the Los Angeles Kings Wednesday. He could start against the Minnesota Wild Friday at home.
