Mike Brodeur reassigned to Binghamton

The starter of the win streak, Mike "Not Martin" Brodeur, has been reassigned to the Binghmaton Senators of the AHL. Mike's three games in the NHL were, of course, very memorable:

Mike's demotion comes because Pascal Leclaire has recovered from the concussion he suffered at practice on January 14th. Some had speculated that Leclaire might get an AHL conditioning stint to reach form while Elliott handles the starter role, but that's obviously not the case.

Ottawa has a double-header this week, playing Buffalo on Wednesday and then Vancouver on Thursday. No word yet on if Leclaire will see one of those starts, but it's always a possibility in a back-to-back.

It's a shame that Not Martin only got three starts at the NHL level, but he definitely made the most of the ones he got. Hopefully he can bring the same quality of play to the struggling B-Sens, who have lost 7 of their last 10 games and currently sit 14th in the Eastern Conference.
