Claesson picked up two assists in 16 games while being paired with Erik Karlsson last season. "It doesn’t really matter if the media wants (to talk to me) or not," said Claesson.

Look for Fredrik Claesson to draw into the Ottawa lineup Saturday afternoon against Los Angeles.

He will take the place of Chris Wideman and partner with Erik Karlsson. Not a bad gig at all. That said, we don't believe Claesson, who has registered no points in six NHL games, has any fantasy value at this time.

Fredrik Claesson may be heading for the press box on Wednesday.

He posted a minus-2 rating and dropped to 14:37 of ice time on Sunday versus Washington. Claesson has a minus-6 rating and no points in six games, while Chris Wideman and Jared Cowen await chances to step back into the lineup.

Coach Dave Cameron has shown more trust in minor-league call up Fredrik Claesson than Jared Cowen, who has been scratch for four straight games. The return of Cody Ceci on Thursday night made Chris Wideman a scratch, so that Claesson could remain in the lineup. Unfortunately, Claesson hasn't done anything yet to show that he can be an asset in fantasy hockey.

Fredrik Claesson played in his first NHL game Wednesday night and he was paired with Erik Karlsson.

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.

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.
