Waiver Move
The Rangers have claimed Matt Puempel off of waivers from the Senators.
Puempel, 23, was a first round pick (24th overall) in 2011, but has yet to make a splash at the NHL level. He has failed to record a point in 13 games with the Senators this season. Puempel had 17 goals and 13 assists (30 points) in 34 games with Binghamton (AHL) last year and has been claimed by the Rangers because they’ll be without Mika Zibanejad for 6-8 weeks.

Signing
The Senators signed Matt Puempel to a one-year, two-way deal on July 15th.
Puempel, 23, was the 24th overall pick in 2011, but has yet to have a big impact at the NHL level. The 6-foot, 190 lbs. forward has been limited to bottom-6 minutes in his first 39 career NHL games—he has six points (4G / 2A). However, during the time he was with Binghamton (AHL) last year, he had an impressive 30 points (17G / 13A) in just 34 games. He should be a key member of the Senators bottom-6 to start 2016-17.

Call up / Send down
The Senators have sent Matt Puempel back to Binghamton (AHL).
Puempel has been on the verge of cracking the Senators roster for awhile now, but can’t seem to quite get there. His demotion comes after ht has two assists and seven shots in five preseason games and it also suggests that Clarke MacArthur is ready to play in the season opener.
