The Ottawa Senators have recalled Winnipeg product, 24-year-old winger Jack Rodewald. 

With a slew of injuries hitting the Senators hard, the team announced on Saturday that it had called up Jack Rodewald from the Belleville Senators of the American Hockey League. Following a three-goal, seven-point start over the span of eight AHL games, it could argued that Rodewald may have received the call even if the injuries had not occurred. 

The 6-foot-2, 195-pound right winger played his Bantam hockey with the Winnipeg Monarchs before playing out his first year Midget with the Notre Dame Hounds of the Saskatchewan Minor Hockey League. Rodewald split his Western Hockey League career in half, playing his first two seasons with the Regina Pats, before finishing his time in junior with the Moose Jaw Warriors. 

In 255 career WHL games, Rodewald picked up 76 goals, 166 points and 205 penalty minutes. He then played 68 games in the East Coast Hockey League for the Orlando Solar Bears and the Wichita Thunder, picking up 23 goals, 55 points and 46 penalty minutes, before getting the nod to dress with the Senators' AHL affiliate. 

In two seasons of American Hockey League play, the 1994-born Manitoban has 35 goals, 61 points and 93 penalty minutes. He will look to build upon his strong start to the season as he hopes to draw into the Senators' Sunday night lineup in Vegas.
