The Sens sent Cody Bass back to Binghamton Senators on Friday afternoon, but he won't be playing for the B-Sens in tonight's game. Instead, he's going home to Owen Sound for 'personal reasons', presumably to celebrate a somewhat late Chrismas with his family.
Unless someone is returning from injury, the timing of this is strange. BassMaster is coming off what might have been his best game, he was chosen by coach John Paddock over Brian McGrattan for two consecutive games, and he got an assist. He'd also worked well with Nick Foligno and Dean McAmmond to make the fourth line into a more stable and effective line.
Binghamton probably needs his help more than Ottawa, though, as they've been playing a few games short-handed with C-Bass out of the lineup.
