Volchenkov Injured, Brian Lee Recalled

No surprise here: the Ottawa Senators announced that Anton Volchenkov is going to be missing time (likely a couple of weeks), due to an elbow injury sustained in last night's game against the Florida Panthers. Anton left the game during the third period.

In his place tonight against the Tampa Bay Lightning (and almost certainly throughout the injury) will be Brian Lee, who has been recalled from Binghamton. It came as a bit of a shock to most when Lee did not make the big club after training camp, and I expect he'll be giving a strong effort to try and prove his worth to the Ottawa brass in hopes that he can stay in the NHL. Lee played 53 games for the Senators last season, tallying 13 points.
