Fredrik Claesson will not be heading to France for Binghamton Senators’ training camp.
With defensemen Marc Methot and Eric Gryba sidelined due to injury, the Senators need Claesson on the blue line right now. "This experience is great for him," said Binghamton head coach Luke Richardson. "Freddy’s done real well, it’s just going to continue for him to go up and up." When the Senators’ blue liners return to full health, Claesson will probably be sent down to the AHL. The 21-year-old had a strong season with Binghamton last season. He registered 3 goals, 29 points and a plus-37 rating in 75 games. Sep 28 - 9:43 AM

Binghamtom Senators defenseman Fredrik Claesson is adjusting well to the North American style of play.

Claesson was Ottawa's fifth-round pick in the 2011 draft, but rather than spend another season in the Swedish Elite League, he expressed desire to play in the AHL to learn how hockey is played on this side of the pond. With no goals and five assists in 14 games, he's not exactly reminding anyone of Bobby Orr, but thanks to his size and toughness he could carve out a role as a shutdown rearguard with Ottawa.
