    Senators' Mika Zibanejad: Nets game winner on power play

    Zibanejad scored the game-winning goal on the power-play in a furious third period against the Kings on Saturday. He also picked up an assist. It had been a month (Dec. 14) since he'd notched a multi-point game and it couldn't have come at a better time. Zibanejad was expected to take a bigger leap forward than he has this season, but he is still just 22. He's an intriguing trade target in keeper formats -- there's still plenty of time for his game to take that big leap forward and it could come as early as 2016-17. Right now, Zibanejad is on course to be the same offensive player he was last season. You need to decide where that fits in your format.

    Senators' Mika Zibanejad: Playing Thursday

    Zibanejad (upper body) will be in the lineup for Thursday's contest with Florida. The Swedish forward left in the first period of Monday's game in St. Louis after taking a stick to the face. Zibanejad's injury won't cause him to miss any additional time, though, and he will center Ottawa's second line with Mike Hoffman, the NHL's seventh-leading goal scorer, playing on his left wing.

    Senators' Mika Zibanejad: Leaves with injury

    Zibanejad will not return to Monday's game against the Blues after leaving with an upper-body injury. Zibanejad left after taking a stick to the face after logging just 1:16 of ice time Monday. The 22-year-old Swedish center can be considered day-to-day for now. His next chance to return to action will come Thursday when Ottawa hosts Florida.

    Senators' Mika Zibanejad: Nets goal against Bruins

    Zibanejad registered his sixth goal of the season Sunday against Boston. Zibanejad is on pace to repeat his 2014-15 season, tallying 21 points in 34 games this year. The center has been an important piece of the Ottawa power-play, logging two and a half minutes of ice time per game with the man advantage in addition to recording five assists with the extra attacker.

    Senators' Mika Zibanejad: Tallies three points against Kings

    Zibanejad picked up a goal, two assists, and a plus-3 rating despite playing just 14:41 against the Kings on Monday. Zibanejad broke a season-long four-game pointless streak with this performance, and is on pace for a career-high 55 points this season. The 22-year-old Swede should continue to improve as he matures, yet he has already managed to exceed 15 goals in two previous NHL campaigns.

    Senators' Mika Zibanejad: Will return Saturday

    Zibanejad (head) will return to the lineup Saturday night versus the Islanders, Don Brennan of Ottawa Sun reports. Fortunately, the head injury apparently was not serious as Zibanejad only missed Thursday's home game against the Blackhawks as a result. It should be safe to place the young Swede back into fantasy lineups at this time.

    Senators' Mika Zibanejad: Out on Thursday

    Zibanejad (head) is out for Thursday night's contest against the Blackhawks, Don Brennan of the Ottawa Sun reports. Zibanejad is evidently still feeling the effects of a hit to the head Tuesday, and the Sens reportedly will put seven defensemen in the lineup against the Blackhawks on Thursday night. Zibanejad's next chance to lace up for a game will be Saturday, for a home tilt against the Islanders.

    Senators' Mika Zibanejad: Absent from Thursday morning skate

    Zibanejad, who left Tuesday's game with an apparent head injury, was absent from the morning skate Thursday, Wayne Scanlan of the Ottawa Citizen reports. Zibanejad was on the receiving end of a hit to the head by Radko Gudas that resulted in a three-game suspension for the Flyers defenseman. If Zibanejad is deemed unfit to play Thursday evening against the Blackhawks, his next chance to suit up for a game would be Saturday, against the Islanders at home.

    Senators' Mika Zibanejad: Exits Tuesday's game with injury

    Zibanejad exited Tuesday's contest with a presumed head injury and did not return, Wayne Scanlan of the Ottawa Sun reports. Zibanejad finished Tuesday's game against the Flyers having seen just 13:19 of ice time prior to a hit to the head from the Flyers' defenseman Radko Gudas. The hit may warrant a suspension, and could cost Zibanejad some time. The winger's next chance to return will come Thursday against the Blackhawks, but it wouldn't be surprising if he's unavailable given the nature of the injury.

    Senators' Mika Zibanejad: Picks up goal and assist

    Zibanejad scored an empty-net goal and assisted on Shane Prince's first-period tally in Ottawa's 5-3 win in Colorado on Wednesday. Ottawa's second-line center has made a name for himself with 16 points through 22 games this season, and is finally starting to live up to his billing as the sixth overall pick in 2012. The Swede is just starting to come into his own at age 22, so look for Zibanejad to keep up his production as long as he maintains a top-six role with the Senators.
