The recently added Twitter photo of Shane Prince shows the former 67's star playing a game, not in Ottawa, Binghamton or on any other ice surface but at a popular U.S. entertainment centre/pizza house popular with children.

Oh, did we mention it's an arcade game?

"That picture was in Binghamton," Prince said Sunday.

"Me and (teammate Cody Ceci) were bored one day and went to Chuck E. Cheese's, played games all day and ended up giving our tickets to a little kid. It was fun."

Whether or not Prince gets back to that particular establishment remains to be seen. The Senators are still talking trade with at least one club, trying to acquire an established player in a package that would include a prospect.

Prince, Ottawa's second round pick in the 2011 entry draft, is often mentioned in the rumours. In fact, as soon as it was noticed that he was not on the ice one day at development camp last week, there was speculation a deal had been consummated.

"I had a sore hip," clarified Prince, who was to resume skating Sunday.

If he does get moved, he'll get over that hurt quickly enough, too. At 21, Prince fully understands the game at this level is a business.

"Obviously they're trying to make a deal, and guys have to go the other way," he said. "I don't really think about it too much. If it happens to be me, then so be it. That's great. If not, that's also great. I'm happy to be here.

"There's obviously a lot of options to go the other way, it's not just me. I don't really think about it, I just control what I can control."
