The forwards called up are right winger Jakob Silfverberg, the B-Sens leading scorer, and left winger Mike Hoffman. Ottawa also invited a trio of defensemen — Mark Borowiecki, Andre Benoit and Patrick Wiercioch — and goalies Ben Bishop and Robin Lehner.
Right winger Mark Stone and center Stephane Da Costa were rumored to get an invite but apparently did not. Ottawa coach Paul MacLean said earlier in the week that the training camp roster will be kept trim compared to a usual year with no lockout. Out of the seven B-Sens that did get an invite, it’s quite possible all but one of the goalies will make the team.
