Binghamton, NY (WBNG Binghamton)
As usual there are more changes to the B-Sens roster.
Today Justin Donati, Andrew Sweetland and Yannick Tifu were all assigned to Elmira of the East Coast league.
The B-Sens are still waiting for Robin Lehner and Roman Wick to get their immigration papers in order, and defenseman David Hale to make it to town from Ottawa.
What is pretty well set is the B-Sens top scoring line.
At least for now.
Ryan Keller, Bobby Butler and newcomer Corey Locke have been skating together at the arena.
It's a mix of old and new with the potential to score a lot of goals.
Locke says, " Playing with Keller and Butler, those are two great shooters. I'm just to try and get them the puck as much as possible. I'm sure it's going to take a little bit of time to get the chemistry here. But it's coming along."
Keller adds, "It's kind of like Marty last year. I does have to get open. I think Locke may be a little bit of a better skater, nothing against Marty, but it will be a lot of fun to have somebody like that we could just get open and he gets you the puck."
And Butler says, "Yeah, definitely I'm definitely going to be confident to come to play every day. When I get chances, those guys are skilled, and they can put the puck in the net. So hopefully I'll be there right along with them."
Much like the Sens roster, the mix of lines will change a lot, perhaps even before the start of the season. And that's coming quickly.
The Sens open at home Friday night against Adirondack.
