Pageau scored a goal, picked up an assist and got a fighting major in Saturday's 4-2 win over Tampa Bay.
Where did that come from? A Gordie Howe hat trick for a guy not known for aggression. Then again, he took on little Brayden Point. Pageau doesn't have huge upside, but he did score 43 points a few years ago. He'll be given plenty of opportunity in Ottawa this season and could challenge that total, especially if Saturday's chemistry with newcomer Vladislav Namestnikov is real.
Pageau drew an assist on Ottawa's lone goal in its 4-1 loss to the Rangers on Saturday.
Despite his team still being winless, Pageau has been highly effective through two games, finding the scoresheet in both contests. Limited to 39 appearances a year ago, the 26-year-old will be looking to stay healthy in 2019-20 and help lead a rebuilding Senators team that many predict will struggle to win most nights.
Pageau scored his team's final goal of the night in a 5-2 loss to Buffalo on Thursday.
The goal ended a 10-game drought for Pageau, who has just four points since March 9. He's not finishing the year out strong, and odds are that you can do better than him in Saturday's season finale.
Pageau has served his one-game suspension and is available for Saturday's clash with Edmonton.
Pageau missed Thursday's tilt with Calgary due to his ban. With the center back in the fold, Vitali Abramov and Filip Chlapik were returned to AHL Belleville. The 25-year-old Pageau will look to keep rolling, as he's notched five points in his last eight outings.
On Thursday, Pageau was hit with a one-game suspension for boarding Vancouver's Ashton Sautner during Wednesday's 7-4 loss to the Canucks.
Pageau's hit on Sautner was high and also from behind. As a result, he'll miss Thursday's game versus Calgary, after the league deemed the hit worthy of a one-game suspension. The 26-year-old will be eligible to return Saturday in Edmonton.
Pageau will have a hearing with the league for his hit on Vancouver's Ashton Sautner on Wednesday, the Department of Player Safety announced Thursday.
Pageau appeared to catch Sautner high and from behind, things the league will look at in determining whether Pageau is given any supplementary discipline. Injuries have limited the Ottawa native to just 31 games this season, which will likely see him miss the 20-point threshold for the first time since 2014-15, especially if he has to serve a suspension.
Pageau collected a pair of helpers in Wednesday's 7-4 loss to the Canucks.
With 10 points in 31 games this season, Pageau has not found as much success as usual, thanks to an Achilles injury that held him out of the first half of the campaign. He's manning the pivot on the first line and top power-play unit, so he receives plenty of opportunities to contribute to the offense.
Pageau picked up an assist in Sunday's 3-2 win over Florida.
Pageau is still trying to find his scoring touch after missing the first 42 games this season after injuring his Achilles tendon. His 0.25 points per game is the lowest since playing just 28 games during the 2013-14 campaign. Despite that, the 26-year-old is averaging a career-high 17:03 of ice time.
Pageau picked up two assists in Wednesday's 5-4 loss to the Maple Leafs.
He helped set up both of Magnus Paajarvi's goals on the night, as the duo showed flashes of chemistry on the Senators' third line. Given that Pageau hadn't found the scoresheet in his prior nine games, however, he'll need to do a little more before he works his way onto the fantasy radar in most formats.
Pageau will likely see his ice time increase to 15 minutes a night moving forward, per coach Guy Boucher.
This is great news for Pageau owners, as it shows that Boucher thinks he's ready to get back to where he was before his Achilles injury. With Matt Duchene out three games for the birth of his child, Pageau has an excellent opportunity to produce this week.
Pageau scored a goal in Sunday's 5-4 loss to the Hurricanes.
Sidelined with an Achilles injury, Pageau hadn't suited up in 2018-19 until Sunday's affair. The 26-year-old wasted little time by scoring in the second period. Despite the loss, the Senators will be thrilled to have Pageau back in their lineup, and if you've been stashing him on your bench, it appears safe to activate him.
Pageau (Achilles) was activated from injured reserve Sunday, per the NHL's official media site. He'll play Sunday's game versus the Hurricanes.
Pageau was initially targeting a March return, but he accelerated his recovery and will get back in the lineup two months early. He'll add instant support up the middle for the Senators, as the 26-year-old scored 14 goals and added 15 assists in 78 games last year. According to Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun, Pageau will center the third line with Magnus Paajarvi and Zack Smith
Pageau should be activated Sunday in advance of a game against Carolina.
Pageau's comment makes it pretty clear that he's going to be in the lineup for Ottawa, but odds are that he won't get a lot of ice time, as the Senators are going nowhere this season and have no incentive to rush Pageau back to where he was before his Achilles injury. Plan on using him only in daily leagues until he shows he's back to his old self.
Pageau (Achilles) is slated to return to the lineup against the Hurricanes on Sunday.
While the news rules Pageau out versus Minnesota on Saturday, the fact that the center has a definitive return date is good news for fantasy owners. The Ottawa native -- who suffered his injury during training camp -- hasn't played in a competitive hockey game since April 7, 2018, a stretch of nearly nine months. Pageau will likely slot into a bottom-six role to start, but he could quickly challenge for a spot on the top two lines. In order to suit up Sunday, the 25-year-old will need to be activated off injured reserve.
Pageau (Achilles) is close to a return, but he won't play Monday versus the Blue Jackets, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.
Pageau's original timeline stamped him with a March return date. However, the fact Garrioch mentioned that Pageau won't be available for New Year's Eve's game signals that his return is closer than originally expected. Keep an eye on his practice capacity, as he'll likely jump right into the top six once he's ready.
Pageau (Achilles) was able to take contact at practice and is trending in the right direction. The center told reporters, "I felt good. I didn't feel any pain, which was key," Steve Warne of TSN 1200 Ottawa reports.
Pageau won't put a date on his recovery timeline, but his original expected return was mid-March. It's unclear if the Ottawa native is ahead of schedule, but taking contact is certainly a positive sign. Whenever he does get the green light to play, the 25-year-old should be considered a near lock for a top-six role.
Pageau (Achilles) wore a non-contact jersey during Sunday's practice, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.
It's remarkable that Pageau has returned to the ice just 10 weeks after tearing his Achilles. The 26-year-old still won't be able to play in a game until March, but this is a good sign for his rehab. Pageau posted 29 points in 78 games last season.
Pageau (Achilles) is listed on injured reserve, per the NHL's official media site.
This comes as no surprise as Pageau isn't expected to return until March of 2019. Barring a miraculous turnaround in his rehab, there could be as few as 10 games left on the schedule by the time the center is ready to play.
Pageau tore his Achilles tendon during testing Thursday and will miss at least six months after undergoing surgery.
After trading away its best player Thursday, Ottawa was hit with the news that top-six forward Pageau suffered a serious injury during pre-camp testing. The Ottawa native will almost certainly be placed on injured reserve once roster limits go into effect. In the meantime, newly acquired Chris Tierney will get an opportunity to compete for Pageau's spot in the lineup alongside Zack Smith, Logan Brown and Filip Chlapik.
Pageau suffered an injury during training camp testing Thursday, Dean Brown of the Senators Radio Network reports.
While the team has yet to provide a more detailed update -- which it plans to do Friday -- early reports per Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports are that Pageau will need surgery to repair his Achilles and will miss 4-6 months. If that's the case, the team will need somebody -- Zack Smith, Chris Tierney or Logan Brown -- to step into a top-six role in order to fill in for the Ontario native.
