The wife of winger Ryan Shannon — who was in a lower-bowl seat at a sold-out Scotiabank Place watching a 4-0 loss to the Carolina Hurricanes — went home with a special souvenir from the “four or five” posts the Senators hit.
Against all odds, the gift was from her husband.
“When I hit the crossbar, the puck went over the netting and landed on my wife’s lap,” Shannon said Thursday of the third-period scoring chance. “She’s got a bruise on her left thigh. She was pissed off. She’s like, ‘I’ve got a bone to pick with you.’
“Out of 20,000 people, it hit my wife.”
from Steven Buono of the Darien Times,
“Yeah, I’m not happy about being in the AHL,” said Shannon during the league’s mid-season break this week. “I am trying to get (ahead), play my best.”
The current turmoil could help, with possibly a second call-up as the Sens inevitably open the tool box wide and start throwing every hammer and wrench at their dilemma soon.
“I just continue to work on my craft, to get to play in the NHL,” said Shannon, who is the B-Sens alternate captain and leading scorer with 10 goals, 26 points in 25 games. “I think of myself as an NHL player. And hopefully it’s just a matter of time before I am back.”...
“I felt that my first game they were happy with what I did,” Shannon said of his strong effort vs. the Islanders at Scotiabank Place on Nov. 13. “But, the Ottawa organization right now is going through a lot of, trouble, so… Who knows what is going to happen.”
Sources tell TSN New York Islanders defenceman Thomas Pock was given a five-game suspension for his elbow to the head of Ottawa Senators’ winger Ryan Shannon last night.
Pock received a 5-minute major and game misconduct for the incident.
After the game, Senators’ head coach Craig Hartsburg made his case for a suspension, using Jarkko Ruutu’s current situation as an example.
Ottawa Senators general manager Bryan Murray announced today the club has acquired right-winger Ryan Shannon from the Vancouver Canucks in exchange for defenceman Lawrence Nycholat.
