  • Pageau recorded an assist and won eight of eleven faceoffs during Saturday's 4-3 triumph over the Avalanche. The pesky forward is producing at a fairly high clip with a goal and nine points in 16 games thus far in 2017-18. Still, Pageau's value is likely to remain limited to deeper leagues, where his contributions in hits (32) and blocked shots (15) are more rewarded.

  • Pageau tallied two assists and added a shorthanded goal in Thursday's 5-4 win over the Flyers. The 5-foot-10 center also racked up five hits in his terrific performance. Pageau totaled a season-high 20:54 of ice time, so there may be some correlation with his scoring. The 24-year-old is still more of a physical player than a scorer and his fantasy value shouldn't change much despite the big night.

  • Pageau assisted on Dion Phaneuf's opening goal in Tuesday's loss to Los Angeles. Pageau has had a slow start to the season, managing just three assists in nine contests. The third-line center put up 33 points last season, but is too inconsistent to be trusted in most fantasy leagues. He's a great depth scorer when he's at his best, so if he catches fire, take notice and snatch him up temporarily in a deeper format.

  • Pageau joined the Senators' second line in Monday's preseason game against Toronto due to injuries, the Ottawa Citizen reports. Pageau broke out in the postseason last year, and the Ottawa native has a chance to earn more ice time with Derick Brassard recovering from shoulder surgery and Colin White out with a broken wrist. If he's skating with Mark Stone and Bobby Ryan in October, Pageau should be in position to surpass last year's total of 33 points.

  • Senators' Jean-Gabriel Pageau: Avoids arbitration
    By RotoWire Staff

    Pageau settled on a three-year, $9.1 million contract with Ottawa on Monday -- avoiding arbitration, Bruce Garrioch of Postmedia reports. Pageau tallied seven goals during the first two rounds of the postseason but disappeared in the Eastern Conference finals, as he managed a mere one goal and two assists. His vanishing act aside, it was a solid playoffs for the center considering he tallied just 33 points in 82 regular-season outings. Given the depth down the middle of the Sens' lineup, the 24-year-old will likely be stuck in a bottom-six role behind Kyle Turris and Derick Brassard, but his ability to play on the wing could increase his minutes during the 2017-18 campaign.
