Puempel was sent back to AHL Binghamton on Wednesday, Bruce Garrioch of Ottawa Sun reports. Puempel will not be alone in the AHL as several teams are using the All-Star break to get younger players more practice and game action. During his three-game stint with Ottawa, the 23-year-old had a minimal impact, averaging 12:29 of ice time and recording a lone helper. The winger's productivity has been significantly higher with Binghamton, tallying 24 points in 29 games.
Puempel was recalled by the Senators on Thursday. Puempel has been producing for AHL Binghamton this season, registering 24 points in 29 games, including three power-play goals. The 22-year-old logged a lone twine bender during his mid-October to mid-November stint with Ottawa earlier this year.
Puempel was reassigned to AHL Bignhamton on Sunday, Dean Brown of TSN 1200 reports. Puempel has continued to be disappointment after being selected 24th overall in the 2011 NHL Draft. In this most recent stint in Ottawa, Puempel scored just one goal in 11 games. More alarming, though, is the fact that Puempel registered just eight shots in that time. The Sens are hoping that Puempel can find his game with more ice in Binghamton and earn himself another recall in the near future.
Puempel was recalled by the Senators on Monday, Steve Lloyd of TSN 1200 reports. The left wing recorded two goals and one assist throughout his 13 game appearances for the Senators' 2014-15 season, so it comes as no surprise that he got placed in the AHL, where he provided 12 goals and 20 assists. The 22-year-old was likely recalled because of injuries to fellow left wingers Mike Hoffman (lower body), Curtis Lazar (upper body) and Clarke MacArthur (concussion).
The Senators assigned Matt Puempel to AHL Binghamton on Wednesday.
