Ryan Dzingel (43)


Ottawa Senators‘ 2nd year left wing Ryan Dzingel(43) received his 1st NHL recall in what is a contract year for the skater.

He played a sparingly used 7 shifts for 5:25 minutes of ice time with 1 hit, 2 penalty minutes, went 50% in the face off dot and was a -1 rating in a 2-1 shootout loss.

The small-ish forward leads affiliate Binghamton Senators in assists with 24 and is tied for the lead in points at 36.

He was tops for all rookies last season with his 17-17-34 totals and finished four on the team in goal scoring.

His marks in 43 AHL games this season has eclipsed what he put up last year and it looks like he will reach new peaks.

The 23-year is set to become a restricted free agent at the end of current campaign but seems like an easy bet to receive a qualifying offer and stay in the system.
