If the regular season does not resume, Anisimov (upper body) has failed to play in 50 games for the first time in seven years, and it showed up in his scoring totals.
Injuries knocked him out of the last four games, but he did match his goal numbers from last year. At this point in his career, the soon-to-be 32-year-old is a 15-to-20 goal scorer who will provide assists as well as goals when he's on a good team and will only provide goals when his team isn't up to par. As the Senators are rebuilding, Anisimov is strictly a lower-end goal scorer at this point.

Anisimov produced a power-play assist and two shots on goal in Monday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Blue Jackets.
Anisimov set up the latter of Connor Brown's two goals in the game. The Russian forward has just five assists to go with 13 goals in 45 contests this year. Anisimov is on pace for his worst offensive season since the lockout-shortened 2013 campaign.
Anisimov posted two goals -- one on the power play -- on five shots in Tuesday's 7-4 win over the Sabres.

Anisimov scored a goal on two shots in Tuesday's 3-2 shootout loss to Anaheim.
Anisimov's power-play goal at 3:16 of the third period knotted the score at 2-2 and ultimately sent the game into overtime. It was the 10th goal in 34 games for the first-year Senator, but his second in the last three games. The 31-year-old has four 20-goal seasons on his NHL resume but will be hard-pressed to get there with the offensively-challenged Senators.
Anisimov scored his eighth goal of the season in Tuesday's 6-1 loss to the Capitals.

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.
