Michael Sdao is showing off his physical nature at the Senators' development camp.

"Even at the development camps, where everybody knows everybody in the room, when he hits guys, he likes to put them in the fourth row," said AHL Binghamton Senators coach Luke Richardson. Sdao had a goal and 23 penalty minutes in 12 AHL games last season. He'll probably start the 2013-14 campaign in the AHL.

Michael Sdao is projected to play with the Binghamtom Senators this season after skating in 12 games with Ottawa's AHL affiliate last year.

"For a big, strong guy, he can kill penalties, push people out from front of net, to let goalies see the puck. He can be a little intimidating for (forwards) coming down on his side," said Binghamton bench boss Luke Richardson. "Maybe he gets them to give up the puck a little early, and that's a good thing. There aren't a lot of guys who want to play like that, naturally, anymore." He's got a bit of a mean streak to his game, which could interest fantasy owners once he's ready to challenge for an NHL roster spot.
