NHL Notes: Senators, Subban, Crosby

The Ottawa Senators have called up forward Ryan Dzingel as reported by the Ottawa Sun.  Dzingel, who was drafted in the seventh round of the 2011 NHL entry draft by the Senators, has 36 points (12 goals, 24 assists) in 44 games with the Binghamton Senators of the AHL this season.  Dzingel was on the ice on Saturday night after his call up and earned an assist with a plus-2 on ice for Ottawa as they dropped the Toronto Maple Leafs 6-1.  Dzingel is in the second year of a two-year contract worth $1.8 million overall.  He will be an RFA after this season.

Nick Paul was also called up by the Senators for insurance if Kyle Turris wasn't able to play against the Leafs.  According to the North Bay Nugget, Turris was able to play leaving Paul as a healthy scratch for the game.  Turris had missed the previous six games prior to suiting up against the Leafs.  The 2013 draft pick of the Senators, Paul has been playing with Binghamton this season, notching 17 points (6 goals, 11 assists) in 43 games for the team.   In additional NHL news and notes:

  • Sidney Crosby earned points number 900, 901 and 902 in the Pittsburgh Penguins comeback win against the Atlantic Division leading Florida Panthers on Saturday night.  Crosby became the 10th fastest to reach the 900 point mark.
