Boedker has not scored in his past four games and has just four points in the month of March Boedker is actually right in line with his standard point totals for the season, but his March slump is not a positive sign given that it's also come with reduced ice time following the Senators' unloading at the trade deadline. Given that he's not producing and is a total anchor on your plus-minus numbers, it's best to look elsewhere right now.
Boedker will be a healthy scratch for Sunday's home tilt against the Flames, Darren Dreger of TSN reports. With Ottawa dealing forwards Matt Duchene and Ryan Dzingel already, the thought was Boedker would see more ice time, but apparently that isn't the case. The 29-year-old has just four points in his past 10 games while averaging 14:05 of ice time. Drake Batherson will likely draw into the lineup and take Boedker's place on the second power-play unit.
Boedker (abdomen) will suit up versus the Blackhawks on Monday, TSN 1200 Ottawa reports. Boedker was out of action for the previous seven games due to his abdominal injury. The winger figures to slot into a bottom-six spot for now, though the potential departures of Matt Duchene and Mark Stone at the trade deadline could create an opportunity for Bodker to log some additional minutes in a more prominent role.
Boedker (abdomen) is now listed on injured reserve, per the NHL's official media site. The Senators announced Tuesday morning that Boedker is week-to-week with his injury, so the IR move makes sense. However, Ottawa currently only has 21 players on the active roster, so two more could be in line for a call-up ahead of Wednesday's road game against the Maple Leafs.
Boedker is dealing with a mid-body injury and is considered week-to-week. The news effectively rules Boedker out for at least the next three games, though it certainly sounds like it could be longer. The Danish winger is sitting with 28 points on the year and should still be able to crack the 30-point threshold for the fourth time in his career this season. The 28-year-old will almost certainly be placed on injured reserve shortly in order to open up a roster spot for a player to be promoted from the minors.
