Blunden was reassigned to AHL Binghamton on Tuesday. Blunden was ticketed back to the minors with Mike Hoffman having returned from a lower-body injury as well as the Senators acquiring Alex Burrows from Vancouver in an early trade Monday. Blunden has made a habit of shuffling between an organization's ranks each season, making him rather useless in the fantasy realm.
Blunden was promoted to the Senators from AHL Binghamton on Saturday. It's always interesting to see which players an organization turns to when injuries strike. Blunden enters the picture as a 30-year-old journeyman with only 125 NHL games under his belt. Still, the parent club is dealing with maladies to power-play weapons Mike Hoffman (lower body) and Mark Stone (neck), so the extra depth is vital.
Blunden was sent down to AHL Binghamton on Saturday. Blunden was aggressive in his season debut Wednesday, racking up five hits in just 9:37 of ice time. He's very much an organizational depth option, having appeared in a mere 125 NHL games over parts of nine seasons and running.
Blunden was recalled from the minors Wednesday. Blunden has yet to make his Senators debut after signing with the club during the offseason. The 29-year-old has registered three goals and one assist in his first nine AHL games. It is unclear if the winger will slot into the lineup against Buffalo on Wednesday, but even if he does, his lack of production in the majors makes him a risky fantasy option.
Blunden was assigned to AHL Binghamton on Wednesday, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports. Blunden will have to officially go through waivers Thursday in order to be sent down. It's not an overly surprising move by the Sens, but disappointing for the 29-year-old. The winger has struggled to find a home over the span of his career, appearing with Chicago, Columbus, Montreal and Tampa Bay over nine years.
