  • Senators' Shane Pinto: Adds helper Monday

    Pinto notched an assist, two shots on goal and a plus-2 rating in Monday's 4-2 win over the Lightning.

    Pinto helped out on a Vladimir Tarasenko tally in the third period. Over his last six games, Pinto has seven points, a run that has earned him a promotion to the top line at even strength. The center has nine points, 31 shots on net and a plus-9 rating through 11 outings after serving a 41-game suspension for violating the NHL's sports wagering rules. He's worth checking on in all fantasy formats.

  • Senators' Shane Pinto: Five points in last two games

    Pinto had a goal and two assists Saturday in a 5-3 win over Toronto.

    His goal was a beautiful tip-in on a point shot. Pinto has two goals and five points in his last two games. His strong play saw him gain his coach's confidence more and more as the game progressed, leading to a season-high 20:14 of ice time. Pinto has seven points in seven games following his return from suspension. It's hard to believe he can keep this up, but he does have something to prove.

  • Senators' Shane Pinto: Two points including OT winner

    Pinto scored the game-winning goal and added an assist in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime win over the Red Wings.

    Thomas Chabot feathered a pass into the slot that Pinto redirected past Alex Lyon a little over two minutes into OT. The 23-year-old Pinto has two goals and four points in six games since making his season debut, and he skated on the Sens' top power-play unit Wednesday. Pinto is poised to be a strong fantasy asset on the other side of the upcoming All-Star break.

  • Senators' Shane Pinto: Collects first tally of season

    Pinto scored his first goal of the season in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Canadiens.

    Playing in his second game since returning from a 41-game suspension, Pinto gave the Senators a 3-0 lead midway through the second period when he got sprung for a breakaway by Claude Giroux and snapped the puck past Jake Allen's glove. Pinto has stepped right into a prominent role for Ottawa, skating on the second power-play unit while averaging just under 15 minutes of ice time in his two games, but it might take an injury to Josh Norris or Tim Stutzle to elevate hm into a spot on the depth chart that would make him a reliable fantasy option in shallower formats.

  • Senators' Shane Pinto: Finishes serving suspension

    Pinto has completed serving his 41-game suspension for violating the NHL's sports wagering rules.

    Pinto is projected to make his season debut Sunday versus Philadelphia. He generated 20 goals and 35 points over 82 games during the 2022-23 campaign.

  • Senators' Shane Pinto: Inks one-year deal

    Pinto (suspension) secured a one-year, $775,000 contract with Ottawa on Friday.

    Pinto was no doubt hoping for a bigger contract when he opted to hold out at the start of the 2023-24 campaign but the situation was complicated by his 41-game suspension. With the restricted free agent now under contract, he should rejoin the lineup against the Flyers on Sunday after serving out his ban. An injury to Josh Norris (upper body) could see Pinto thrust into a top-six role in his return to the lineup.

  • Senators' Shane Pinto: Expected to return when eligible

    Coach Jacques Martin said Friday that he expects Pinto to be in the lineup Jan. 21 versus the Flyers when he completes his suspension, Claire Hanna of TSN reports.

    Pinto has yet to sign a contract as he is a restricted free agent, but that is expected to be a formality. Martin thinks there will be a period of adjustment for Pinto, as he has yet to see any game-situation ice time but the transition should not be a long one. Pinto was suspended 41 games for sports wagering. He had 20 goals and 15 assists in 82 contests last season.

  • Senators' Shane Pinto: Allowed to resume practicing

    Pinto (suspension), who is still a restricted free agent, is now able to resume practicing with the Senators, Bruce Garrioch of The Ottawa Sun reports Wednesday.

    Pinto will complete his 41-game suspension, which he received because of activities related to sports wagering, in time for Ottawa's game against Philadelphia on Jan. 21, but he can't play until he signs a new contract. Under normal circumstances, a restricted free agent who didn't sign before Dec. 1 would be ineligible to play for the remainder of the season, but that rule was waived due to Pinto's suspension. The 23-year-old had 20 goals and 35 points in 82 outings last year.

  • Senators' Shane Pinto: Receives lengthy suspension

    The NHL announced Thursday that Pinto has been suspended 41 games for activities related to sports wagering.

    Per Elliotte Friedman of, even though Pinto remains unsigned as a restricted free agent, his suspension has been made retroactive to the first game of the season, and he doesn't need to be under contract to serve the ban. As long as he comes to terms on a new deal with the Senators in the meantime, Pinto will be eligible to make his season debut Jan. 21 versus Philadelphia. The 22-year-old forward picked up 20 goals and 35 points in his first full NHL campaign in 2022-23.

  • Senators' Shane Pinto: Remains unsigned

    Pinto, a restricted free agent, remains unsigned ahead of Wednesday's season opener versus Carolina, Wayne Scanlan of the Ottawa Citizen reports.

    Pinto's holdout will evidently last into the regular season. With Pinto and Josh Norris (shoulder) set to be unavailable, Ridly Greig could see top-six minutes to start the campaign.

  • Senators' Shane Pinto: Stays sharp in win

    Pinto registered a power-play assist and five shots on goal in Saturday's 7-4 win over the Lightning.

    Pinto has recorded at least five shots in a game seven times this season, which is an exciting trend for the rookie, who's up to 20 goals and 14 assists with two more appearances on tap. Taken in the second round (No. 32 overall) of the 2019 draft, Pinto has gone from a relative unknown in fantasy circles to a high-upside flier for redraft leagues next fall.

  • Senators' Shane Pinto: Finds back of net

    Pinto scored his 18th of the season in the Senators' 5-4 loss to Colorado on Thursday.

    Pinto has 29 points in 68 games but has not had an assist in his last 13. He came into the season as a sleeper for the Calder Trophy, and while he has had moments of offensive prowess this season, he has not put himself in contention to be thought of as the best rookie in 2022-23.
