Phaneuf's 2015-16 campaign was stopped short due to a lower-body injury, but the blueliner managed four goals, 28 assists and 90 PIM in 71 games. Phaneuf was shipped to Ottawa at the trade deadline, with the blueliner notching a goal and seven helpers in 20 appearances with his new team. Unfortunately, the 31-year-old wasn't able to produce consistently on the second pair next to Cody Ceci, but hopes are high when he's able to get a full season under his belt with the Sens. The vocal leadership is evident and should prove to be beneficial for the young talent, but owners want to see results. Expect Phaneuf to come into next year healthy and hungry for a strong campaign.
Phaneuf (lower body) has been ruled out for the remainder of the 2015-16 season. Considering the Senators have no playoff hopes at this point, it's not a huge surprise they will take precautions with their trade deadline acquisition. It's an unfortunate end for fantasy owners, who have lost a reliable blueliner in the thick of the playoffs, but he can now be safely dropped in all but keeper leagues.
Phaneuf (lower body) will not suit up for Saturday's meeting with Anaheim, Steve Llyod of TSN reports. Phaneuf will miss his second game in a row which is a blow to the Senator's blue line, however barring something incredible, Ottawa is unlikely to make the playoffs regardless of the veteran's absence. The defenseman's fantasy value has been declining of late, as he's notched a mere one helper in his last 10 contests and is riding a 14-game goalless streak. The 30-year-old's next chance to return to the depth chart will be Wednesday against Winnipeg.
Phaneuf (lower body) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Islanders and is out indefinitely. It is unclear what the exact injury is that Phaneuf sustained Tuesday, but it is severe enough to keep him out of Wednesday's tilt. He had 24 points through 51 games this season prior to sustaining the injury, and was seeing just over 22 minutes of ice time per night.
Phaneuf left Tuesday's tilt against the Capitals with a lower-body injury and will not return. Phaneuf exited Tuesday's game after 16:28 of ice time. The severity of the injury is unclear at this point but he can be considered day-to-day going forward. His next chance to return will come Wednesday at the Islanders.
