Senators' Artem Anisimov: Snipes lone Sens goal Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anisimov scored his eighth goal of the season in Tuesday's 6-1 loss to the Capitals.

He opened the scoring early in the first period, ripping a shot into the top corner past Ilya Samsonov on a 2-on-1, but the game was all Caps after that. Anisimov has only 10 points through 31 games this season, which could make it tough for the Senators to shed the 31-year-old's contract at the trade deadline if they're so inclined.

Senators' Artem Anisimov: Salvages loss with goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anisimov scored an even-strength goal in Sunday's 4-3 overtime loss to New Jersey.

Despite logging 3:13 of power-play time against the Devils, Anisimov failed to produce on special teams Sunday, but he did score his seventh goal of 2019-20. The goal was his sixth point since returning from a groin injury that caused Anisimov to miss 10 games. For the season, he has eight points in 21 games.

Senators' Artem Anisimov: Quickly opens scoring Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anisimov scored a goal on three shots in Monday's 5-2 win over the Bruins.

Anisimov tallied at 1:35 of the first period, and the Senators would never trail in the game. It was the fourth goal of the year for the Russian -- that accounts for all of his offense in 13 games. He's produced 24 shots on goal but carries a minus-8 rating -- Anisimov can't be trusted to be a consistent presence on the scoresheet yet.

Senators' Artem Anisimov: Tickles twine on power play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anisimov scored a power-play goal on two shots and went plus-2 in Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Oilers.

Anisimov tallied in the final second of a Jujhar Khaira minor penalty in the second period. Anisimov has just three goals in 11 games this season, with injuries plaguing the 31-year-old's season so far. He's produced 21 shots on goal and a minus-8 rating. Anisimov had no fewer than 31 points in a campaign over the last four years, but he'll need to stay healthy to have any chance of reaching that mark in 2019-20.

Senators' Artem Anisimov: Set to make return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anisimov (groin) is in Friday's lineup in Jessi Pierce's game preview, suggesting he'll make his return against the Wild.

Anisimov is expected to center the third line between Tyler Ennis and Connor Brown. He last dressed Nov. 7 and has two goals in seven games this season.

Senators' Artem Anisimov: Returns to practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anisimov (groin) was practicing in a normal jersey Thursday, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

There is optimism that Anisimov will be able to return for Friday's game against the Wild after an absence that has lasted nearly three weeks, and his return to practice is an encouraging sign regarding his status. The 31-year-old has totaled two points and two hits over seven games this season.

Senators' Artem Anisimov: Closing in on return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

According to coach D.J. Smith, Anisimov (groin) could be ready to return as soon as this weekend, Brent Wallace of reports.

Anisimov has been sidelined for nearly three weeks due to a groin injury, but the veteran pivot appears to finally be closing in on a return. Once he's given the green light, the 6-foot-4 Russian will return to a bottom-six role and a spot on one of Ottawa's power-play units.

Senators' Artem Anisimov: Headed for long-term absence
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anisimov will be sidelined for an extended period of time due to a groin injury and has been placed on injured reserve, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

Anisimov just returned from injured reserve Tuesday after dealing with a lower-body issue, which may have been the same groin problem that will send him to the shelf moving forward. The Senators were rostering 14 forwards even with a healthy Anisimov, so the team won't be forced to make a move to cover his spot.

Senators' Artem Anisimov: Activated off IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anisimov (lower body) has been activated off injured reserve ahead of Tuesday's matchup with the Islanders, per the NHL's official media site.

Anisimov's activation all but confirms that he'll return to the lineup against New York. The 31-year-old vet, who's picked up one goal in five games this campaign, is expected to slot into a bottom-six role Tuesday, centering Tyler Ennis and Bobby Ryan on Ottawa's third line.

Senators' Artem Anisimov: Unable to play Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach D.J. Smith said Anisimov (lower body) won't play in Monday's game against the Rangers, TSN 1200 Ottawa reports.

Smith confirmed that Anisimov traveled with the team to New York, but he doesn't have a chance to play until Tuesday's matchup against the Islanders. With Colin White dealing with a long-term hip injury, Anisimov's return can't come soon enough, as the team is rolling out Jean-Gabriel Pageau and Vladislav Namestnikov as its top two centers.

Senators' Artem Anisimov: Makes road trip
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Pierre Dorion said Sunday that Anisimov (lower body) skated Sunday and is expected to join the team in New York ahead of their game against the Rangers.

Anisimov has missed a total of seven games this season with the lower-body issue, but as evidenced by this news, could be nearing a return as early as Monday. It was announced Sunday that the Senators could be without top-line center Logan Brown (upper body) for multiple games, so Anisimov's return would be a huge lift for the forward group.

Senators' Artem Anisimov: Set to miss 1-2 weeks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anisimov will be sidelined 1-2 weeks due to a lower-body injury and has been designated for injured reserve.

Anisimov previously missed three games as a result of a lower-body issue, but it's unclear whether this is a new problem. In his five outings, the Russian notched one goal, four blocks and one hit while averaging 14:38 of ice time. With Colin White (hip) also on the shelf, the club recalled Logan Brown from the minors.

Senators' Artem Anisimov: No points in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anisimov (lower body) had two shots on goal and a plus-1 rating in Monday's 2-1 loss to the Stars.

The Russian forward was on the ice for the Senators' lone goal, scored by Vladislav Namestnikov, but he didn't get his name on the scoresheet. Anisimov figures to skate in the bottom-six for now as he works back up to full strength.

Senators' Artem Anisimov: Suiting up Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anisimov (lower body) will play in Monday's contest against the Stars.

Anisimov missed the last three games and hasn't suited up since Oct. 12. He scored one goal with a minus-6 rating in four games this season. The 31-year-old forward will jump into a bottom-six role.

Senators' Artem Anisimov: Game-time call Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach D.J. Smith said Anisimov (lower body) is a game-time decision for Monday's matchup against the Stars.

While Smith leaves the door open for Anisimov's return, he also said Mikkel Boedker will slot into the lineup, so it's tough to see where Anisimov would fit in. Nevertheless, the final verdict on his status should be revealed when the Senators take warmups at 8:00 p.m. ET.

Senators' Artem Anisimov: Out Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anisimov (lower body) won't play Saturday versus the Coyotes.

Anisimov will miss his third game with a lower-body injury. The Senators' forward had a shot to face the Coyotes, but the team ultimately decided it wasn't worth the risk and decided to hold him out. Anisimov will now target Monday's game in Dallas for a return. He has a goal in four games this season but is a minus-6.

Senators' Artem Anisimov: Remains unavailable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anisimov (lower body) isn't expected to play Thursday against Vegas, TSN 1200 Ottawa reports.

Anisimov will miss a second straight game, and at this point it's impossible to predict when he might be ready to return, as the Senators have yet to release an expected timetable for his recovery. Jordan Szwarz will continue to fill in on the fourth line until Anisimov is cleared to rejoin the lineup.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anisimov (lower body) won't play in Monday's game against the Wild, Brent Wallace of reports.

Jordan Szwarz will enter the lineup to provide depth while Chris Tierney and Jean-Gabriel Pageau will center the second and third lines, respectively. Anisimov will look to return Thursday against the Golden Knights.

Senators' Artem Anisimov: Considered game-time decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anisimov (lower body) is a game-time call for Monday's game against the Wild, Brent Wallace of reports.

Initially deemed unlikely to play, coach D.J. Smith shed more optimism on Anisimov's chances of suiting up. The Senators recalled Nick Paul and Jordan Szwarz from AHL Belleville to add depth while Mikkel Boedker is expected to center a middle-six line in his place.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anisimov (lower body) isn't expected to play in Monday's game against the Wild, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

The Senators tipped their hand that Anisimov would likely be unavailable Monday when they recalled forwards Jordan Szwarz and Nick Paul from AHL Belleville earlier in the day. For the moment, Anisimov is being viewed as day-to-day and could be ready to go for Thursday's contest versus Vegas.
