The Ottawa Senators have sent young forward Filip Chlapik back to the AHL in Belleville on Friday.
The 20-year-old centre was called back on Dec. 20.
The 2015 second-round pick has posted solid numbers in the minors this season, notching six goals and 15 points in 27 games. It was his first opportunity to crack the Senators' lineup, where he played six games.
He recorded one assist with the big club.
