Pageau finished his 2015-16 campaign with career highs across the board -- 19 goals, 24 helpers, 26 PIM and a plus-17 rating in 82 games. Pageau's 43 points on the year included nine in a shorthanded situation (seven tallies), which is spectacular, especially considering the Sens continuously failed to capitalize on the power play during the season. The 23-year-old cemented himself on the first line, and it may be tough to unseat the 2011 fourth-round pick barring a step back in production next year. It remains to be seen who will be chosen as the new head coach for Ottawa, which could end up being instrumental in the development of Pageau and other young talent.
Pageau had two shorthanded points Saturday -- a goal and assist -- to go along with a plus-3 rating and five hits in a 6-1 win over Boston. Pageau has been masterful in shorthanded situations, tying the franchise record with seven goals down a man. The 23-year-old has had two multi-point outings down the stretch, boosting the center to 43 points to end the season (also a plus-17 rating). There are no complaints about the 2011 fourth-round pick, as he's made a big jump this campaign and looks to be a solid asset for Ottawa moving forward.
Pageau notched an assist and two hits in Saturday's 4-3 overtime loss to Anaheim. Pageau has started a trend this month, reaching the scoresheet and then going pointless in two straight. Well, Saturday was the 23-year-old's turn to get on the board, registering assist No. 20 on the year. The center has 21 points in February and March combined, all the more impressive considering he had just 16 before the All-Star break.
Pageau notched a shorthanded goal and a plus-2 rating in Saturday's 5-0 win against Montreal. Pageau leads the league with six shorthanded markers on the year, which proves he's a threat when down a man. Showing promise in his fourth season with Ottawa, the 23-year-old has three goals in a month for the fifth time this campaign and has a chance to hit 40 points for the first time in his career. Across the board, Pageau has elevated his game and the first line is living large with the center at the helm.
Pageau had himself a game Saturday, notching three assists to goal along with a plus-3 rating and four hits in a 4-0 victory against Toronto. This was Pageau's first three-assist game on the year as the first line for Ottawa continues to click. Mark Stone and Zack Smith have been producing themselves as well, which raises the value of Pageau significantly as they build chemistry down the stretch. The 23-year-old has seven multi-point outings to date, including two in March so far, and now sits at 35 points on the season -- 16 above last year's total.
