  • Senators' Austin Watson: Five points in last five games

    Watson scored a goal and added an assist Tuesday in a 4-1 win over the Red Wings.

    Watson opened the scoring with jut five seconds remaining in the first period. He scored from the high slot on a quick pass from Josh Norris. He picked up the assist on an empty-net goal by Tim Stutzle that put the Sens up 4-1 with 14 seconds left in the game. Watson has just eight goals and four assists in 58 games this season, but his game has been much warmer lately. He has four goals and an assist in his last five games.

  • Senators' Austin Watson: Lights lamp twice in win

    Watson scored two goals in Tuesday's 6-3 win over the Canadians.

    He opened and closed the scoring for the Senators, getting them on the board late in the first period to tie the game at 1-1 before flipping home an empty-netter late in the third. Watson only has six goals in 54 games on the season as he toils away on the fourth line, but three of them have come in the last three games.

  • Senators' Austin Watson: Eligible to return

    Watson has served his two-game suspension and is eligible to return Thursday versus the Sabres.

    Watson is expected to play in a bottom-six role after his two-game ban. The 31-year-old has just three points in 31 games this season, though he's added 93 hits and 55 PIM. Given the almost total lack of offense, Watson isn't a player fantasy managers need to follow closely.

  • Senators' Austin Watson: Facing suspension

    Watson will have an in-person hearing Sunday for his interference penalty against Bruins forward Jack Ahcan.

    With an in-person hearing set, Watson can be suspended five or more games. He struck Ahcan up high away from the puck and was given a two-minute penalty for the hit. This shouldn't impact many fantasy managers as Watson has just three points through 30 games this season.

  • Senators' Austin Watson: Suspended two games

    Watson received a two-game suspension Sunday for interference on Boston's Jack Ahcan, Conor Ryan of MassLive.com reports.

    Watson has averaged 14:18 of ice time and been held without a point over the last 10 games. The 31-year-old will miss Sunday's game against Washington and Tuesday's tilt versus St. Louis while suspended.

  • Senators' Austin Watson: Gets physical in loss

    Watson contributed two PIM and four hits in a 3-1 loss to the Sabres on Tuesday.

    Watson has found himself in the box a lot lately, with 13 PIM over his last eight games. The 31-year-old has played in just 19 games this season, with two goals and 34 PIM.

  • Senators' Austin Watson: Clears virus protocols

    Watson was activated off the NHL's COVID-19 protocols list Saturday.

    As long as he's fit enough to play, Watson will likely slot into a bottom-six role for Monday's clash with Colorado. The 30-year-old winger has gone scoreless through two games this season.

  • Senators' Austin Watson: Enters COVID-19 protocols

    Watson was placed in the league's COVID-19 protocols Friday.

    Watson was just two games back from an ankle injury and will now need to miss at least 10 days, barring a false positive. As such, fantasy players should be anticipating Watson will be out for the next five games, during which time Logan Shaw should jump back into the lineup.

  • Senators' Austin Watson: Suiting up Tuesday

    Watson (ankle) will be activated from injured reserve and be in Tuesday's lineup against Minnesota.

    Watson will make his season debut after suffering an ankle injury during the preseason. The 30-year-old forward scored 10 points with 100 hits in 34 games last season. He'll likely debut in a bottom-six role Tuesday.

  • Senators' Austin Watson: Set to play Tuesday

    Watson (ankle) is expected to return to the lineup against Minnesota on Tuesday, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

    Watson will remain on injured reserve ahead of Monday's clash with Chicago as the team awaits the outcome from placing Scott Sabourin on waivers. Last year, Watson garnered three goals and seven assists in 34 games for the Senators and figures to slot into a bottom-six role with a ceiling in the 20-point range.

  • Senators' Austin Watson: Ahead of schedule

    Watson (ankle) could return during the Senators' upcoming three-game road trip, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

    Watson was originally expected to be sidelined until mid-November with his ankle injury, but he's clearly ahead of schedule in his recovery. The 30-year-old winger, who picked up 10 points and 100 hits in 34 games last campaign, will likely slot into a bottom-six role once he's cleared to play.

  • Senators' Austin Watson: Lands on IR

    Watson (ankle) has been placed on injured reserve, per the NHL media site.

    Considering Watson isn't expected back until mid-November, his designation for IR shouldn't come as a surprise. The 30-year-old winger has yet to get on the ice this season due to his ankle problem. Once cleared to play, Watson will likely take on a bottom-six role. Considering the Michigan native has never hit the 20-point mark in his career, fantasy players shouldn't expect this season to be any different.

  • Senators' Austin Watson: Facing four-week absence

    According to head coach D.J. Smith, Watson (ankle) will be out for roughly four weeks, Ken Warren of The Ottawa Citizen reports.

    With 10 points in 34 games last season, Watson doesn't exactly fill the net, but his physical game (triple-digit hits five years running) and veteran leadership will be missed on a young and relatively inexperienced Senators squad. If his recovery timetable is accurate, Watson will miss about 11 games or so, with his return coming around Nov. 9 against Boston.

  • Senators' Austin Watson: Suffers ankle injury

    Watson sustained an ankle injury that is expected to keep him out of practice for the next 2-3 days, Ian Mendes of TSN 1200 Ottawa reports.

    Based on the team's timeline, Watson will not be an option against the Maple Leafs on Saturday and will turn his focus to Opening Night versus Toronto on Thursday. The 30-year-old winger notched just 10 points in 34 games last year. If the Ann Arbor native can avoid any extended absences, Watson could finally get over the 20-point threshold this year.

  • Senators' Austin Watson: Ready to rock

    Watson (hand) skated at Thursday's practice, TSN 1200 Ottawa reports.

    Watson's first season in Ottawa ended with 10 points and 100 hits in 34 games, but he was sidelined from late March onward with a hand injury. He underwent surgery to fix broken bones in his hand and thumb, and the 30-year-old should be ready to take on a fourth-line role this season.

  • Senators' Austin Watson: Should be ready on time

    Watson believes he'll be ready for the start of the 2021-22 season after fracturing his hand in March.

    Watson wasn't a real contributor on the scoresheet and might struggle to get ice time as the Senators continue giving opportunities to younger players. He's likely to be in a bottom-six role if he does get ice time, and there will be more valuable fantasy options available.

  • Senators' Austin Watson: Won't return this season

    Watson (hand) has been ruled out of the remainder of the campaign, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

    Watson will finish the season having picked up 10 points, 40 PIM and 100 hits through 34 games. The 30-year-old winger underwent surgery to repair fractures in his thumb and hand in late March, so he should be back to 100 percent ahead of next year's training camp.
