Hurricanes' Cedric Paquette: Traded to Carolina
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Senators traded Paquette and Alex Galchenyuk to the Hurricanes in exchange for Ryan Dzingel on Saturday, Frank Seravalli of reports.

Paquette has been sitting as a healthy scratch for the Senators recently, so it's not surprising to see him heading elsewhere via a trade. He'll likely be a rotational, bottom-six option for the Hurricanes going forward.

Senators' Cedric Paquette: Notches first goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Paquette scored a goal and dished out five hits in Tuesday's 4-2 loss to the Oilers.

Paquette's first goal as a Senator spoiled Mikko Koskinen's shutout bid in the second period. That tally was also Paquette's first point in nine contests. He's produced 27 hits and four PIM, but he carries a minus-8 rating, as the Senators get outscored with frequency in the offense-happy North Division. Paquette had 175 hits and 18 points in 61 games last season, but he'll have a tough time replicating that scoring rate in 2020-21.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Paquette (lower body) notched five hits in 12:20 in Wednesday's 5-1 loss to the Canucks.

Paquette missed one game with the injury, but he returned in his usual hard-hitting form. His five hits led the Senators. Through six outings, the fourth-liner has no points, a minus-6 rating, 19 hits and eight blocked shots.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Paquette (lower body) will return to the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Canucks, Brent Wallace of reports.

Senators' Cedric Paquette: Expected to sit Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Paquette (lower body) isn't listed among Ottawa's lines for Monday's game in Vancouver, so he's expected to sit out the game due to his injury, Brent Wallace of TSN Ottawa reports.

Paquette sustained the injury Saturday against Winnipeg. His next chance to rejoin the lineup will come in Wednesday's rematch with the Canucks.

Senators' Cedric Paquette: Exits Saturday's contest
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Paquette will not return to Saturday's game versus the Jets due to a lower-body injury.

Paquette played only 5:31 in Saturday's game, with two hits and a minus-1 rating. It's unclear how he suffered the injury, but it was bad enough to rule him out after the second intermission. Look for an update on the 27-year-old's status prior to Monday's road game in Vancouver.

Senators' Cedric Paquette: Traded to Ottawa
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Lightning traded Paquette, Braydon Coburn, and a 2022 second-round pick to Ottawa in exchange for Anders Nilsson and Marian Gaborik on Sunday.

Paquette will provide some much-needed depth down the middle for Ottawa, as he should slot into a middle-six center role. The 27-year-old has scored at least 10 points in five of the last six seasons, including last year, when he tallied 18 points in 61 games.

Lightning's Cedric Paquette: Back in action Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Paquette (undisclosed) returned to practice Monday, Bryan Burns of the Lightning's official site reports.

Paquette returned to the ice after sitting out the previous three camp sessions. The Quebec native figures to slot into a bottom-six role for the club but offers enough offensive upside that he could be a sneaky DFS play during the round-robin matchups.

Lightning's Cedric Paquette: Unable to practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Paquette (undisclosed) wasn't on the ice for Friday's practice, Bryan Burns of the Lightning's official site reports.

It isn't clear what prevented Paquette from taking the ice Friday, and due to the NHL's new injury update policy, the Lightning won't be releasing any details regarding his health.

Lightning's Cedric Paquette: Back in action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Paquette (undisclosed) is in the projected lineup for Tuesday's game against Toronto,'s Corey Long reports.

Paquette missed Saturday's loss to Arizona due to an undisclosed issue, but he was never expected to be sidelined for long. He'll slot into his usual role skating on Tampa Bay's fourth line against the Maple Leafs.

Lightning's Cedric Paquette: Out versus Coyotes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Paquette (undisclosed) is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against Arizona, Bryan Burns of the Lightning's official site reports.

Paquette missed practice Friday and won't dress to face the Coyotes on Saturday. With only 15 points in 53 games, his absence will largely go unnoticed in fantasy leagues.

Lightning's Cedric Paquette: Iffy against Arizona
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Paquette (undisclosed) is considered questionable for Saturday's clash with the Coyotes, Joe Smith of The Athletic reports.

Paquette missed Friday's practice, which was the first sign that he might not be available against Arizona. If he's unable to go Saturday, Anthony Greco will likely take his spot in the lineup.

Lightning's Cedric Paquette: Snaps 25-game goal drought
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Paquette scored a goal Thursday in a 3-1 win over Edmonton.

It went into an empty net, but a snipe is a snipe. It snapped a 25-game goal drought. Paquette has 14 points (five goals, nine assists) in 50 games this season. He's not scoring at the same rate he has in his past, but Paquette is just five points from knotting his career mark (19).

Lightning's Cedric Paquette: Good to go Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Paquette (undisclosed) will be available for Monday's game in Dallas, Caley Chelios of the Lightning's official site reports.

Paquette exited the Lightning's game on Jan. 17 after blocking a shot but the All-Star break gave him enough time to heal up. The 26-year-old forward has 13 points in 40 games this season.

Lightning's Cedric Paquette: Exits after blocked shot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Paquette (undisclosed) blocked a shot and exited Friday's game versus the Jets in the second period. He will not return.

Paquette also briefly left the ice late in the first period, but he was able to come out for the second. The 26-year-old will have 10 days to heal up before the Lightning come out of their bye week versus the Stars on Jan. 27. Paquette can be considered day-to-day for now.

Lightning's Cedric Paquette: Rare big game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Paquette set up two goals Thursday in a 4-0 win over the Coyotes.

He had just three points in his past 21 games and it's just Paquette's second two-point effort of the season. His 13 points in 35 games are hardly fantasy worthy, but his 112 hits count for something.

Lightning's Cedric Paquette: Secondary stats pile up
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Paquette picked up an assist Tuesday night in a 6-4 win over the Sabres.

He also laid two hits and finished plus-1. Paquette's fantasy value is limited -- he has just 11 points (four goals, seven assists) in 30 games. But Paquette may help you in leagues that count face-off wins (173) and hits (94). He always seems to be able to deliver in those categories.

Lightning's Cedric Paquette: Points in three straight
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Paquette scored a shorthanded goal in a 5-2 win over Buffalo on Monday.

Paquette recently ended a nine-game goal drought. He's scored twice in three games. The Lightning forward scored an important insurance marker at 8:17 of the third period to put Tampa Bay ahead 4-2. Injured to start of the year, Paquette has only appeared in 13 games this season and has registered eight points along the way.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Paquette set up two goals in Saturday's 5-3 win over the Sabres in the 2019 NHL Global Series in Stockholm, Sweden.

He also put up 12 PIM. This trip overseas has been good to Paquette, who now has three points in two games there. Prior to that, he had just a single goal in five contests.
