The Senators recalled Mark Stone from Bingo this morning (et en français) on an emergency basis.

<script src="http://www.hockeydb.com/em/?text_col=%23000000&linktext_col=%230000ee&linktext_hover_col=%23770000&bg_col=%23f0ecdd&border_col=%23000000&title_bg_col=%23d6cda5&row_bg_col=%23ffffff&row_alt_bg_col=%23f5f2e9&header=1&pid=116184" type="text/javascript"></script>

Stone suffered a shoulder injury in Binghamton's season opener, but has produced at a point per game basis in the 18 games since he returned from injury, evenly split at 9 goals and 9 assists. In his career time with the big club, Stone had an assist in his first NHL game during the 2011-12 playoffs, but was pointless in 4 regular season games and 1 playoff game last season.

In our off-season Top 25 Under 25 Stone fell a few positions to 12th, he was expected to be higher up on the potential call-up list with an outside chance of making the team out of camp.

This recall puts some doubt on the availability for Spezza and Neil for Thursday night's game against Winnipeg.
