The Senators traded Carey to the Bruins on Friday in exchange for Cody Goloubef. Carey has logged just five NHL games this season for the Senators and has never been a consistent contributor at the top level. He will likely wind up with AHL Providence, where he should provide the minor-league club with a veteran presence up front.
The Senators reassigned Carey to AHL Belleville on Wednesday. Carey served as a healthy scratch during his one-game stay with the big club, so this move isn't surprising. The veteran forward will return to a prominent role with Belleville, where he's racked up four goals and 19 points in 20 appearances this season.
Carey was recalled from AHL Belleville on Monday. Injuries are piling up for the Senators, which is why they are calling on the veteran journeyman for reinforcement. Last season, the 30-year-old got his first real NHL playing time, but he only managed 51 shots on goal in 60 games. The upside here, for fantasy players, is effectively nil. Carey may not even break into the lineup while he's in Ottawa.
Carey was reassigned to AHL Belleville on Wednesday. Carey will likely find himself moving between leagues frequently this season, as he figures to be the primary call-up option when injuries pop up. In his five NHL outings this year, the Boston native is pointless while averaging a mere 9:08 of ice time.
Carey was recalled by the Senators on Tuesday, Steve Lloyd of TSN 1200 Ottawa reports. Carey's a solid fourth-line player with seven goals and 14 points in 60 games last season. The Sens need depth at forward since Brady Tkachuk (groin) and Max McCormick (lower body) are considered day-to-day ahead of Saturday's game versus the Maple Leafs.
