Hugh Jessiman did not work out with the Binghamton Senators on Sunday because of a minor shoulder injury, but he's expected to add some size to Ottawa's minor-league affiliate this season.
"They were pretty forward with me, right at July 1," said Jessiman. "They said we need size. We don't have a lot of it. We think you can be a Dwight King kind of guy for us and if willing to take that chance, we'll sign you. I'm not a heavyweight fighter, but I'm not afraid to stick up for my teammates and drop the gloves. Both here and (in Ottawa), I can do that. It might be a touch different role here than (in Ottawa)." The 6-foot-6, 231-pound forward has plenty of minor-league experience, but he has skated in only two NHL games after being selected 12th overall by the New York Rangers in 2003. Jessiman is hoping that he'll get another shot at NHL action with Ottawa, but even if there wasn't a lockout he's too much of a gamble to recommend considering for your fantasy squad.
