Senators' Derek Stepan: Will miss rest of campaign
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stepan is set to undergo surgery to repair his dislocated left shoulder and will miss the rest of the season.

Stepan is expected to make a full recovery ahead of the 2021-22 campaign, but he'll be an unrestricted free agent this offseason, so there will be a lot of uncertainty surrounding his situation heading into next season. The 30-year-old pivot picked up one goal and six points in 20 games with the Senators before suffering his season-ending shoulder injury.

Senators' Derek Stepan: Lands on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stepan (upper body) has been placed on injured reserve.

The Senators have yet to release an expected timetable for Stepan's return, but he'll miss Ottawa's next four games at a minimum now that he's been placed on IR. The veteran forward has notched six points in 20 games this campaign.

Senators' Derek Stepan: No timeline for return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stepan (upper body) will be re-evaluated after suffering an injury in Tuesday's game versus the Canadiens, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

Per head coach DJ Smith, a timeline for Stepan's return hasn't been determined yet. Until more information surfaces, consider the 30-year-old center day-to-day. His availability for Thursday's game versus the Flames is likely questionable at this stage.

Senators' Derek Stepan: Departs with injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stepan (upper body) will not return to Tuesday's game versus the Canadiens.

Stepan was hurt during the first period of the contest. He played only 2:30 but earned an assist before suffering the injury that ended his outing. More information should surface on his status prior to Thursday's game versus the Flames.

Senators' Derek Stepan: Picks up helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stepan notched an assist, two shots on goal and two PIM in Tuesday's 4-2 loss to the Oilers.

Stepan set up Tim Stutzle for a tally in the final minute of the game. The assist gave Stepan three points in nine outings this year. The veteran center has added 18 shots on goal, 12 hits and a minus-6 rating. It appears Stepan is set for a third straight season of diminished scoring outputs, which makes it difficult to roster him in fantasy.

Senators' Derek Stepan: Returning Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stepan (undisclosed) is in the lineup for Sunday's contest against the Oilers.

Stepan missed just one game with an undisclosed injury but is back in action Sunday. The veteran center has two points in seven games this season.

Senators' Derek Stepan: Dealing with injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach DJ Smith said that Stepan (undisclosed) won't play in Thursday's game against Vancouver, Brent Wallace of reports.

The specifics of the absence remain unclear, but Smith classified Stepan as day-to-day going forward. The veteran has had a quiet start to the season, compiling two points and a minus-6 rating through seven games. In his stead, Filip Chlapik is expected to enter the lineup Thursday at center.

Senators' Derek Stepan: Joins practice Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stepan finished his seven-day quarantine and practiced with the Senators on Sunday.

After being traded from Arizona on Dec. 26 and having the birth of his child just a few days later, Stepan has finally joined the Senators at training camp. The 30-year-old center is slated for a top-six role along with power-play time. Over 70 games with the Coyotes last season, Stepan posted 28 points -- seven with the man advantage -- and 158 shots on net.

Senators' Derek Stepan: Arrives in Ottawa
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stepan landed in Ottawa on Sunday and will begin his seven-day quarantine, Wayne Scanlan of the Ottawa Citizen reports.

Stepan -- who was traded from Arizona on Dec. 26 -- missed the first part of training camp due to the birth of his child. The 30-year-old center will now quarantine for a week, so he'll likely join the team for practice next Sunday. That leaves about five days of practice before the season opener against Toronto on Jan. 15. Stepan is slated for a middle-six role with the rebuilding team.

Senators' Derek Stepan: Could miss start of camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stepan won't report to Ottawa until after the birth of his child, Brent Wallace of reports, which will likely see him miss the opening days of training camp.

Depending on when Baby Stepan is born, a 14-day quarantine could possibly carry over into the start of the NHL season with the Senators set to kick off Jan. 15 versus Toronto. Regardless of when the veteran center links up with his new club, he should immediately slot into a top-six role and could even push for the first line alongside Evgenii Dadonov and Brady Tkachuk.

Senators' Derek Stepan: Shipped to Ottawa
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stepan was acquired by the Senators from the Coyotes on Saturday in exchange for a 2021 second-round pick.

The 30-year-old is entering the final year of his contract and will make his way to Ottawa for the 2020-21 campaign. Stepan appeared in 70 games for Arizona last season and totaled a career-low 28 points (10 goals and 18 assists).

Coyotes' Derek Stepan: Nabs assist in Game 5
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stepan had an assist in Wednesday's 7-1 loss to the Avalanche in Game 5.

Stepan was productive in the postseason, with a goal and four helpers in nine games. It's a positive sign after two disappointing regular seasons in a row -- Stepan had 35 points in 72 games in 2018-19, followed by a career-low 28 points in 70 outings this year. If he can maintain his playoff form in 2020-21, the 30-year-old could be in line for a bounce-back campaign.

Coyotes' Derek Stepan: Bags helper in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stepan recorded an assist, three shots on goal, two blocked shots and a plus-2 rating in Wednesday's 4-2 win over the Canucks.

Stepan had the secondary helper on Oliver Ekman-Larsson empty-net tally in the final minute of regulation. Offense remains sparse for Stepan, who has just four points in his last eight games. His season scoring rate is worse with 28 points in 68 outings. The 29-year-old center is shooting a career-low 6.5 percent this year -- he will almost certainly finish below 50 points for the second straight campaign.

Coyotes' Derek Stepan: Plucks apple Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stepan recorded an assist and fired a team-high six shots on goal in Saturday's 3-1 win over the Capitals.

Stepan wasn't able to cash in on his half-dozen chances, but he set up Lawson Crouse for an empty-net tally. The 29-year-old center reached 25 points with his assist, and he's added 137 shots and a minus-5 rating through 61 games this season. It's looking likely that Stepan will have a career-worst year on offense for the second year in a row.

Coyotes' Derek Stepan: Pair of points in road win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stepan had a goal and a power-play assist in Monday's 3-2 win in Montreal.

Stepan came up big considering he'd only managed an assist in his eight previous contests. With only nine goals and 24 points in 58 games, the 29-year-old isn't likely to crack 50 points at this stage of his career, but Stepan could easily post 35-45 points when all is said and done.

Coyotes' Derek Stepan: Adds helper in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stepan registered an assist and three shots in Thursday's 5-3 loss to the Hurricanes.

Stepan snapped a six-game point drought with the assist. The veteran center is up to 22 points, 123 shots on goal and a minus-5 rating through 56 contests. The Minnesota native skated only 12:59 on Thursday and could continue to see his role decrease if he doesn't pick up the pace on offense.

Coyotes' Derek Stepan: Shakes apple tree
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stepan posted three assists, three blocked shots and a plus-3 rating in Tuesday's 6-3 win over the Sharks.

Stepan assisted Phil Kessel in the first period and added helpers on goals by Lawson Crouse and Taylor Hall in the third. It's the first three-point game of the season for the center, who is up to 21 points, 107 shots and a minus-2 rating in 49 games. He's found the scoresheet in six of his last eight outings, which suggests Stepan's year-plus-long drop in productivity may be near its end.

Coyotes' Derek Stepan: Scores third-period goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stepan had a goal and four shots in Sunday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Penguins. He also went 12 for 20 (60 percent) in the faceoff circle.

Stepan gave the Coyotes a 3-2 lead midway through the third period, potting his eighth of the year. The veteran center is in the midst of his most productive stretch of the season, having collected two goals and four assists in seven games since New Year's Eve. Still, he only has 18 points in 48 games on the year and is no longer the reliable 50-point man he was during the bulk of his time with the Rangers.

Coyotes' Derek Stepan: Good to go Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stepan (hand) will play in Tuesday's game versus the Panthers.

Stepan was considered a game-time decision after injuring his hand during Monday's practice, but it's not serious enough to keep him out of the cross-conference clash. The 29-year-old will center the third line and work on the second power-play unit, and he'll look to extend his current three-game point streak.

Coyotes' Derek Stepan: Game-time call
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stepan (hand) will be a game-time decision for Tuesday's matchup with Florida, Craig Morgan of The Athletic reports.

If Stepan's unable to go, Michael Grabner will likely draw into the lineup against the Panthers. Confirmation on the 29-year-old pivot's status should surface once the Coyotes take the ice for pregame warmups.
