Lazar is expected to handle duties on the second line while Bobby Ryan (hand) is sidelined, Ken Warren of the Ottawa Sun reports.

Lazar has spent a majority of his season with AHL Binghamton, but he was recalled Nov. 19 and has appeared in six games for the Sens. The 21-year-old hasn't recorded any points, but he showed promise in 2015-16, averaging a career-high 13:52 of average and notching six goals and 14 assists in the process. He'll have the benefit of Kyle Turris and Ryan Dzingel on the second line, a major upgrade over his old bottom-six mates, Chris Kelly and Chris Neil.
