Paul put pen to paper on a one-year, two-way contract with Ottawa on Tuesday.
Paul excelled in the minors last season, as he racked up 39 points in 43 games. The 24-year-old was significantly less productive in 20 appearances for Ottawa, just two points, but was averaging a meager 8:28 of ice time. The Ontario native figures to continue splitting time between leagues heading into the 2019-20 campaign.
Paul was given a qualifying offer by Ottawa on Thursday, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.
Paul saw action in just 20 games for the Senators this season, in which he notched one goal, one assist and 30 shots while averaging a mere 8:28 of ice time. The winger would earn a $715,000, two-way deal under the terms of his qualifying offer and figures to continue splitting time between the AHL and NHL next season.
The Senators waived Paul on Sunday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.
Paul was a healthy scratch for Saturday's game versus the Red Wings and he has just two points in 20 games for the Sens this year. The team now only has 12 healthy forwards, so it will likely recall a player from AHL Belleville before Wednesday's game versus the Maple Leafs. If Paul clears waivers, he'll head to Belleville.
Paul emerged for his first goal of the season in Saturday's 3-2 loss to the Blues.
Mikkel Boedker controlled the puck behind the net and fed Paul. who one-timed it for the game's first goal. Paul simply was at the right place at the right time in this one, but don't expect consistent production from a guy averaging 8:37 of ice time per contest.
Paul was promoted from AHL Belleville on Friday, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.
Paul has appeared in six games at the NHL level this season, notching just one assist while playing 9:25 on average in those contests. He will provide some depth to the forward group with Bobby Ryan (upper body) potentially sidelined for a while and a number of others already on injured reserve.
Paul was reassigned to the minors Monday.
Paul's demotion could be an indication Zack Smith (face) is ready to be activated off injured reserve; however, the team doesn't play until Thursday's matchup with Detroit, so it could be a simple cap-saving move. In six outings with the Senators this season, the 23-year-old Paul notched one helper, 12 shots and a minus-5 rating while averaging just 9:25 of ice time. Looking ahead to the rest of the season, the Ontario native will likely find his way back to Ottawa down the road as a frequent call-up due to injury or poor performance.
Paul was recalled from the minors Thursday.
Paul was flipped for fellow winger Jack Rodewald and may have a chance at a spot in the lineup against the Sabres. How the team decides to deploy the squad -- if it carries six or seven blueliners -- will weigh heavily on whether Paul makes his 2018-19 debut.
Paul was assigned to AHL Belleville on Sunday.
Paul was with the team for two days but didn't crack the lineup for Saturday's game against the Canadiens. Alex Formenton (concussion) could be eligible to return for Tuesday's game against the Bruins, and if that's the case it's unlikely Paul is recalled for the matchup.
Paul was recalled from AHL Belleville on Friday.
Paul's call-up likely means Alex Formenton (concussion) won't be ready in time for Saturday's matchup with Montreal, although the 23-year-old Paul will likely serve as an extra depth option as long as Ryan Dzingel (lower body) doesn't suffer any setbacks. With three points in two minor-league games, it's also possible Paul will replace Formenton for a longer stint.
Paul was reassigned to AHL Belleville on Tuesday.
Paul was initially called up in the wake of injuries to Ryan Dzingel (lower body) and Alex Forementon (concussion). The NHL's Senators do not play again until Saturday, so Paul is better off joining the B-Sens in the meantime.
The Senators recalled Paul from AHL Belleville on Friday, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.
Ottawa placed forwards Ryan Dzingel (lower body) and Alex Formenton (concussion) on injured reserve Friday, so Paul will slot into the lineup immediately Saturday against the Kings. The 23-year-old winger potted one goal in 11 appearances with the big club last season.
Paul signed a one-year, two-way contract with Ottawa on Monday.
The deal for the Winger, who spent most of last season in the American Hockey League, will stay put in Ottawa's organization for at least one more year. In 171 career games in the AHL, the Canadian has scored 35 goals and 46 assists in 171 games, but has also played 36 games in the NHL with Ottawa, collecting three goals and three assists.
Paul was tendered a qualifying offer from the Senators on Monday.
This allows Ottawa to preserve its negotiating rights with Paul -- a pending restricted free agent -- ahead of the July 1 signing period. A brawny winger listed at 6-foot-4, 230 pounds, Paul made 54 appearances with AHL Belleville last season, adding 14 goals, 13 assists and 40 PIM over 54 games. He also hit hockey's big stage for 11 contests, but a single goal was the only point he could muster in limited action. There's a chance that Paul plays more this coming season given that the Senators are in the midst of a rebuild and clearly he's going to stay in Capital City.
Paul was reassigned to AHL Belleville on Sunday.
While the move to demote Paul could be an indication that Zack Smith (shoulder) is nearing a return from injury, it could also be as simple as getting Paul some more ice time as the Senators are off until Wednesday against Detroit. The 22-year-old winger is averaging a mere 7:52 of ice time over his last six games, so it shouldn't come as a surprise he's tallied a single point over that stretch.
Paul was summoned to the Senators from AHL Belleville on Wednesday.
Paul ascends to the parent club to show us if we really should be trusting people with two first names. All jokes aside, this is a solid move by the Senators. The 22-year-old winger is lauded for his rigid work ethic and brings tremendous size to the lineup at 6-foot-4, 223 pounds. It's not clear if Paul will play against the Rangers on Wednesday, but he does give Senators coach Guy Boucher options, as he's reportedly capable of playing any forward position. Ottawa reassigned defenseman Ben Harpur to AHL Belleville to make room for the power forward.
Paul was reassigned to AHL Belleville on Sunday.
Paul played three games during his most recent recall, failing to score and playing less than eight minutes per contest during that span. A fourth-round pick in 2013, Paul has now suited up for 29 NHL games, totaling two goals and five points, though none of the points have come since 2015-16. Should Paul find himself in Ottawa during the rest of the season, he won't likely fill anything more than a bottom-six role.
Paul was called up from AHL Belleville on Thursday.
With the roster sitting at 20 active players, the Sens had room to bring up some additional depth in Paul. Whether this is an indication coach Guy Boucher is going to move away from his 11 forwards-seven defensemen strategy remains to be seen. The 22-year-old has notched five helpers in 12 minor-league outings so far this season, but has yet to impress in his limited NHL appearances.
Paul was reassigned to AHL Belleville on Monday.
The 22-year-old forward found his way into the lineup for a single game during his recall, going scoreless with two shots on goal in just over six minutes of time on ice Friday against Colorado. While Paul was able to record some fairly impressive numbers in the AHL last season -- 15 goals and 37 points -- he's hit something of a dry spell this season with just five assists in 11 AHL contests. Paul will likely remain a recall option for the Sens in order to provide depth, but he shouldn't be considered in fantasy decisions at this juncture of his career.
Paul was recalled from AHL Binghamton on Monday.
With Ottawa taking a trip to Sweden for a two-game set against Colorado, Paul will serve as a depth forward for the contests. The 22-year-old has yet to play an NHL game this season, but he's notched five assists in 11 games in the minors.
Paul (ankle) resumed skating with his teammates Friday.
Paul was expected to be sidelined for a week when he sustained his ankle injury last Friday, so he's right on schedule with his recovery. The 22-year-old winger may not be in the lineup for Saturday's preseason matchup with the Canadiens, but he should be fully recovered in time for Ottawa's first regular-season game against Washington on Oct. 5.
