OTTAWA -- The Ottawa Senators recalled goaltender Robin Lehner on an emergency basis from their American Hockey League affiliate Binghamton on Friday.

Lehner, who played for Sweden at the world junior hockey championship, will replace the injured Pascal Leclaire.

It's the second emergency call-up for Lehner, who made his NHL debut Oct. 16 at Montreal, stopping all three shots he faced while Brian Elliott replaced a broken skate.

He has also served as Elliott's backup in seven NHL games.

Lehner is 3-5-1 in 10 games with Binghamton.
