Senators recall Jim O'Brien from Binghamton

Just hours before their game against the New York Islanders, the Ottawa Senators announced that they'd recalled centre Jim O'Brien from the Binghamton Senators.

The move appears to be a precautionary one in the event that Jason Spezza, who missed practice Friday morning due to 'soreness,' was unable to play against the Islanders. Reports state, though, that Spezza will be good to go, which is great because I bet that he'd outscore John Tavares in tonight's game.

O'Brien has just 14P (7G, 7A) in 27GP so far this season with Bingo, but six of those points have come in the last four games. He`s played six NHL games in his career, registering no points and two penalty minutes.
