  • Senators' Alex Formenton: Ordered to surrender to police

    Formenton (personal) has been directed to surrender to London, Ontario police to be charged with sexual assault in connection with an alleged incident that occurred during a 2018 Hockey Canada event, TSN reports.

    Per TSN, Formenton and four other individuals, who are all NHL players, are expected to surrender before the London Police Service holds a press conference Monday to provide a public update on the case. The five individuals are accused of sexually assaulting a woman at a London hotel on June 19, 2018, following a Hockey Canada Foundation golf and gala event. Formenton, who hasn't played in the NHL since 2021-22 but is on the Senators' reserve list as an unsigned restricted free agent, remains on an indefinite leave of absence from Swiss club Ambri Piotta.

  • Senators' Alex Formenton: Takes leave from Swiss club

    Formenton was granted a leave of absence from Swiss club Ambri Piotta on Wednesday.

  • Senators' Alex Formenton: Re-signs in Switzerland

    Formenton signed with Ambri-Piotta of the Swiss League on Thursday, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

    Formenton signed until Christmas and can get out of his contract at any time if he signs with Ottawa or another NHL team. Formenton spent last season with Ambri-Piotta after he and the Senators were unable to agree on a contract by the Dec. 1 deadline. Formenton had 18 goals and 32 points in 79 games with the Senators in 2021-22.

  • Senators' Alex Formenton: Signs overseas deal

    Formenton agreed to terms on a one-year contract with Swiss club Ambri-Piotta HC on Wednesday.

    Formenton failed to agree to a new deal with the Senators before the Dec. 1 deadline, meaning he won't be eligible to play in the NHL this year. The winger was coming off a career year in which he racked up 18 goals and 14 assists in 79 contests. Formenton appears to be banking on a strong year in Switzerland in order to bolster his position at the bargaining table ahead of next season.

  • Senators' Alex Formenton: Can't play in NHL in 2022-23

    Formenton didn't sign with Ottawa before the 5 p.m. EST deadline Thursday, which makes him ineligible to play in the NHL for the rest of the 2022-23 campaign, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

    Formenton is a restricted free agent, which is why there was a deadline for him to agree to a contract. Ottawa can still re-sign Formenton or trade his negotiating rights to another team, but because the deadline has passed, he still wouldn't be able to play in the NHL until next season. The 23-year-old forward had 18 goals, 32 points, 59 PIM and 101 hits in 79 games in 2021-22.

  • Senators' Alex Formenton: Still unsigned

    Formenton, a restricted free agent, has yet to sign an extension with the Senators, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

    At this point it isn't clear if Formenton will wait to report to training camp until he's signed a new deal. The 23-year-old winger picked up 18 goals and 32 points while averaging 15:27 of ice time through 79 contests last campaign.

  • Senators' Alex Formenton: Tallies twice Tuesday

    Formenton scored two goals on seven shots and added three hits in Tuesday's 4-3 shootout win over the Canucks.

    Formenton hadn't gotten on the scoresheet since his goal March 26 versus the Panthers, so this was an unexpected burst of offense. The 22-year-old has showed promise in spurts this season with 17 tallies, 13 helpers, 152 shots on net, 98 hits and a minus-12 rating through 74 outings. He'll continues to see a middle-six role, but his lack of consistency makes him a risky option in most fantasy formats.

  • Senators' Alex Formenton: Scores in win

    Formenton scored a goal on three shots in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Blues.

    Formenton has now scored a goal in two of his last three appearances. The 22-year-old winger has enjoyed a breakout season in 2021-22, setting career highs in goals (13), assists (11) and shots on net (114). He should continue to log middle-six minutes down the stretch.

  • Senators' Alex Formenton: Back in action

    Formenton (undisclosed) will play Tuesday versus the Blues.

    Formenton is expected to skate in his usual second-line role. He exited Sunday's game versus the Capitals early after a hit from Garnet Hathaway, but he's no worse for wear. Formenton has 22 points, 57 hits and 91 shots on net through 42 games this season.

  • Senators' Alex Formenton: Exits win early

    Formenton (undisclosed) was removed from Sunday's game in the third period for what coach D.J. Smith called "precautionary reasons," Ian Mendes of TSN 1200 Ottawa reports.

    The 22-year-old forward opened the scoring in a 4-1 win over the Capitals with a short-handed goal in the first period before taking a big hit from Garnet Hathaway later in the afternoon that could wind up being looked at by the league. Formenton has 11 goals and 22 points through 42 games in his first full season in the NHL, and if he winds up missing additional time, Ottawa could have trouble replacing him in the top six with Josh Norris (shoulder) and Drake Batherson (ankle) still on injured reserve.

  • Senators' Alex Formenton: Provides helper in win

    Formenton notched an assist and went plus-2 in Monday's 4-1 win over the Devils.

    Formenton helped out on Nick Paul's game-tying goal in the first period. The 22-year-old Formenton entered the All-Star break on a three-game point drought, but he didn't need long to get back on the scoresheet. The Ontario native is poised to see top-six minutes in the second half of the campaign. He's earned his first 20-point campaign with nine goals, 11 assists, 78 shots on net, 49 hits and a minus-1 rating through 38 contests.

    Formenton scored a goal Thursday in a 3-2 shootout loss to the Hurricanes.

    Formenton has put up five points (two goals, three assists) during a five-game point streak. He redirected a Victor Mete point shot past Frederik Andersen at the 5:50 mark of the third period.

  • Senators' Alex Formenton: Two points in Saturday's win

    Formenton scored a goal on two shots and added an assist in Saturday's 6-4 win over the Oilers.

    Formenton began the game on the second line, but he was shuffled down to a unit with Chris Tierney and Adam Gaudette in the third period. That trio sparked the Senators' comeback, with Formenton setting up Gaudette before scoring a goal of his own to tie the game at 3-3. Formenton is up to 14 points (seven tallies, seven helpers) with 52 shots on net, 35 hits and 19 PIM through 28 contests. He's had multi-point performances in three of his last four games.

  • Senators' Alex Formenton: Dishes pair of helpers

    Formenton registered two assists, two shots on goal and a plus-2 rating in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Flames.

    Formenton and linemates Nick Paul and Connor Brown each had multi-point efforts Thursday. The 22-year-old Formenton assisted on both of Paul's first-period tallies. Since the start of December, Formenton has four goals and five assists in 11 outings. The second-round pick from 2017 is up to 12 points, 50 shots, 35 hits, 19 PIM and a minus-3 rating in 27 contests. Maintaining a top-four role will be key for him to keep contributing regularly on offense.

  • Senators' Alex Formenton: Two-point game includes shortie

    Formenton had a goal and an assist Saturday in a 4-3 overtime loss to the Flyers.

    Fromenton stole the puck from Flyers defenseman Keith Yandle at center ice, broke in alone on Martin Jones and scored shorthanded to tie the game up in the second period. He has five points (two goals, three assists) in his last five games.

  • Senators' Alex Formenton: Two points in losing effort

    Formenton scored a short-handed goal and added an even-strength assist in Tuesday's 5-3 loss to the Islanders.

    Both points came in the third period, as the Sens tried in vain to rally from a 4-1 deficit. Formenton has two two-point performances in the last four games, but those are the only times he's found his way onto the scoresheet over the last month. On the season, the 22-year-old has five goals and seven points in 21 contests.

  • Senators' Alex Formenton: Strikes twice in rare win

    Formenton scored twice on two shots in Thursday's 3-2 win over the Hurricanes.

    Talk about efficiency. Formenton needed just two shots and 9:41 of ice time to double his season goal total, helping Ottawa snap a six-game losing streak. Perhaps the 22-year-old winger still has another level to his game that he's yet to unlock, but Formenton's current fourth-line role on one of the league's worst teams just doesn't cut it for fantasy purposes.

  • Senators' Alex Formenton: Clears virus protocols

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

    Formenton will likely be in the lineup when the Senators return to action Monday against the Avalanche. He's notched three points through 12 games this season.
