The Senators have assigned Maxime Lajoie to Belleville (AHL).
Lajoie had a hot start to the season but has just 15 points (7G / 8A) in 56 games this season. Lajoie has a bright future ahead of him but needs some more seasoning in the AHL. Lajoie had 15 points (1G / 14A) in 56 AHL games last season.
Lajoie will be a healthy scratch on Saturday.
The Senators went with seven defensemen last night but Lajoie is expected to be replaced by Nick Paul on Saturday night. Lajoie has been held pointless in his last 12 games.
Lajoie (undisclosed) will not return to the Senators lineup on Thursday.
