Dion Phaneuf in a Senators practice jersey
— CBC Ottawa (@CBCOttawa) February 10, 2016
Even stranger than expected.
Phaneuf plays his first game for the Senators tonight versus the Red Wings on Hometown Hockey. He’s been skating with Cody Ceci on the left side of the Senators’ second pair and saw practice reps with Erik Karlsson on the top powerplay unit.
Greening starting with Leafs
— Chris Johnston (@reporterchris) February 10, 2016
It may only be temporary due to the injuries the Leafs are dealing with up front, but Colin Greening will get a few NHL looks with the Maple Leafs during this road trip from the looks of it.
Greening has appeared in just one game for the Senators this season — an early December meeting with Chicago — and played just five shifts for four minutes of total time on ice. He has one point in his last 26 NHL games dating back to the start of 2014-15.
Frattin staying with Marlies
— Todd Crocker (@HockeyCrock) February 10, 2016
A loan from one NHL club’s affiliate to another’s is increasingly rare, but the Leafs wanted to push the Standard Player Contract to Ottawa so there was flexibility heading toward the deadline, while keeping Frattin with the Marlies for their Calder Cup run.
