  • Senators' Jake Sanderson: Snaps slump with assist

    Sanderson recorded an assist in Monday's 4-2 win over the Lightning.

    Sanderson set up a Tim Stutzle tally in the first period. The helper ended a five-game slump for Sanderson, who also missed three games with a lower-body injury in that span. The 21-year-old blueliner has had more positives than negatives in his second campaign, racking up 25 points, 100 shots on net, 91 blocked shots and a plus-6 rating through 49 appearances in a top-four role. Just six of his points have come on the power play, so there may still be some room for him to grow his game in that area.

  • Senators' Jake Sanderson: Set to play Saturday

    Sanderson (lower body) is slated to return Saturday versus Chicago.

    Sanderson, who missed the Senators' last three contests, has seven goals and 24 points in 47 outings in 2023-24. He's projected to play alongside Artem Zub (lower body), who will also draw back into the lineup. Jacob Bernard-Docker will be a healthy scratch Saturday.

  • Senators' Jake Sanderson: Hoping to play during Florida trip

    Sanderson (lower body) is looking to rejoin the lineup for the Senators' two-game Florida road trip, Claire Hanna of TSN reports Tuesday.

    Based on his timeline, Sanderson looks set to be sidelined for at least three more games before the team heads to the Sunshine State to face Tampa Bay and Florida on Monday and Tuesday, respectively. With Artem Zub (lower body) also dealing with an injury, the Senators could be forced to utilize just five blueliners against Columbus on Tuesday.

  • Senators' Jake Sanderson: Unlikely to play Saturday

    Sanderson (lower body) isn't expected to play Saturday versus Toronto, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

    Sanderson sustained the injury during Wednesday's 3-2 overtime win over Detroit. He has seven goals, 24 points, 26 hits and 89 blocks in 47 appearances this season. Travis Hamonic's (lower body) status for Saturday's contest remains to be seen, but if Ottawa has to play without Hamonic and Sanderson, then the Senators will likely need to recall a blueliner from the minors.

  • Senators' Jake Sanderson: Sustains injury Wednesday

    Sanderson (lower body) won't return to Wednesday's game versus the Red Wings.

    Sanderson sustained the injury in the first period and was ruled out during the second. He may benefit from the All-Star break -- the Senators don't play again until Feb. 10 against the Maple Leafs, potentially giving him time to heal without missing games if it's a minor injury.

  • Senators' Jake Sanderson: Two-point effort against Avs

    Sanderson produced a goal on a team-high six shots on net while adding an assist, two PIM and a plus-1 rating in Tuesday's 7-4 loss to Colorado.

    It was the first multi-point performance since Dec. 19 for the 21-year-old blueliner, and his second-period tally snapped a 16-game goal drought. The Senators are trying not to overwork Sanderson in his second NHL season -- he saw less than 20:00 of ice time Tuesday for the first time in seven games, and Thomas Chabot handled duties on the first power-play unit -- but Sanderson's stayed relatively productive with eight points in the last 14 contests, including three helpers with the man advantage.

  • Senators' Jake Sanderson: Logs 15th assist

    Sanderson registered an assist, two shots on goal and two blocked shots in Tuesday's 6-3 loss to the Canucks.

    Sanderson has six helpers over his last eight games, including three on the power play. The 21-year-old blueliner was bumped to the second power-play unit with the return of Thomas Chabot on Sunday. Sanderson's offense may take a slight hit going forward, but he's still in a top-four role at even strength. He's up to 20 points, 60 shots on net, 70 blocked shots and a plus-1 rating through 33 outings overall.

  • Senators' Jake Sanderson: Contributes two helpers

    Sanderson produced a pair of assists and blocked five shots in Tuesday's 4-3 loss to the Coyotes.

    Sanderson helped out on goals by Angus Crookshank and Josh Norris in the first period. This was Sanderson's first multi-point game since Nov. 16 -- in the 12 contests in between, he had just one goal and two assists. The defenseman is up to 17 points (five on the power play), 51 shots on net, 57 blocked shots and a plus-2 rating through 27 outings overall.

  • Senators' Jake Sanderson: Reaches 10-assist mark

    Sanderson provided a power-play assist, fired two shots on goal and went minus-2 in Sunday's 6-3 loss to the Golden Knights.

    Sanderson's helper was his 10th of the season. The 21-year-old defenseman has hit some growing pains with just three points over his last 12 contests, though he's maintained a steady top-four role and added 29 blocked shots in that span. He's got a high floor defensively, which will help him avoid demotions in the lineup. Sanderson has 15 points, 51 shots on net, 52 blocked shots and a plus-2 rating through 26 appearances this season.

  • Senators' Jake Sanderson: Two-point effort in OT win

    Sanderson scored a goal and delivered an assist in Thursday's 5-4 overtime win over the Red Wings.

    After lighting the lamp himself midway through the first period, Sanderson initiated the wild scramble in the Detroit end that led to Tim Stutzle's OT winner with just two seconds left on the clock. Sanderson continues to look far more seasoned than a 21-year-old blueliner in his second NHL season should, and through 14 games the fifth overall pick in the 2020 Draft has racked up four goals and 12 points with 26 shots on net, 23 blocked shots, seven hits, four PIM and an even plus-minus rating.

  • Senators' Jake Sanderson: Stays hot in Saturday's loss

    Sanderson scored a power-play goal in Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Red Wings.

    The 21-year-old blueliner has come flying out of the gate in his second NHL season, piling up three goals and six points in five games. Sanderson's hot start has allowed him to rocket past Thomas Chabot and Jakob Chychrun to take over point duties on the Senators' first power-play unit. The eight-year, $64 million contract extension Sanderson signed in September is proof of the amount of faith the team has in him, and he has rewarded the Senators in return.

  • Senators' Jake Sanderson: Collects two points Wednesday

    Sanderson scored a goal, recorded an assist, blocked two shots and added two PIM in Wednesday's 6-1 win over the Capitals.

    Sanderson got on the scoresheet for the third straight game, and this was his second multi-point effort of the campaign. He's at two goals, three assists, five shots on net, five blocked shots and a plus-3 rating through four contests. His defense partner, Artem Zub, left the game with an upper-body injury. Sanderson has been working on the second pairing, and he was elevated to the first power-play unit over Thomas Chabot for Wednesday's game.

  • Senators' Jake Sanderson: Two points including GWG

    Sanderson scored the game-winning goal and added an assist, both on the power play, in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Flyers.

    It was a big game for Ottawa defensemen, as Jakob Chychrun scored the first two goals of the afternoon on the way to a three-point performance, but Sanderson potted the eventual GWG on an absolute rocket from just inside the blue line late in the second period. The 21-year-old is coming off a strong rookie season that earned him an eight-year contract extension just before the season started, and while he's splitting power-play time with Chychrun and Thomas Chabot, Sanderson is already showing that he can still make an impact even if he isn't the team's No. 1 option on the back end.
