Paul signed a two-year, $2.7 million deal with Ottawa on Wednesday, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.
Paul put together a strong end to the 2020-21 campaign, racking up seven points in his final 15 appearances. The 24-year-old winger logged 56 contests with the Senators this season, garnering garnered nine goals and 11 helpers. Looking ahead to next year, Paul could push for 30-40 points, which would make him a solid mid-range fantasy option.
Paul entered the hiatus having more than tripled his shots-on-goal totals in a season, notching 20 points in the process.
Prior to this year, Paul had only taken 73 shots in his career and hit 103 prior to the league postponement, which suggests he could eventually become a solid contributor as he gets more NHL experience. At 24 years old on a rebuilding team, Paul is probably at least two or three years away from becoming a real contributor, so he should only be owned in deeper dynasty leagues at this point in his career.
Paul collected an assist and served up two hits in Wednesday's 3-2 loss to the Kings.
Paul has managed a goal and three helpers in his last seven outings. The 24-year-old forward reached the 20-point mark with his assist Wednesday. He's added 103 shots on goal, 122 hits and 24 PIM in 56 games this season.
Paul scored a goal on four shots Thursday in a 5-1 loss to the Jets.
Paul opened the scoring off a faceoff play midway through the first period, wiring a shot from the left circle past Winnipeg goalie Laurent Brossoit. Paul has provided the Senators with eight goals and 16 points in 45 games this season but holds limited fantasy appeal.
Paul scored his seventh goal of 2019-20 in Thursday's 3-2 win over Arizona.
Paul, appearing in his fourth game back from injury, scored his first goal since returning to Ottawa's lineup. The winger missed 10 games with an ankle injury. Up to 14 points on the season, the 24-year-old isn't worth owning in fantasy unless the Senators' coaching staff decides to deploy Paul on the power play more regularly.
Paul (ankle) is expected to be activated from IR and suit up for Thursday's game versus the Avalanche, Brent Wallace of TSN.ca reports.
Paul has been skating with a regular jersey since Monday, and he'll be ready to rock for the first time since Jan. 7. The Ontario native worked on the second line during Wednesday's practice, and he'll look to build on career highs in goals (six) and points (13).
Paul (ankle) practiced with a regular jersey Monday, Hailey Salvian of The Athletic reports.
Paul took line rushes with the extras, so he's likely not ready to return to the lineup Tuesday versus the Ducks. However, the 24-year-old appears to be near full health after sustaining a high-ankle sprain in early January. An activation from IR will precede Paul's return to the lineup.
Paul is expected to miss at least a month with the high ankle sprain he suffered last Tuesday against the Capitals, Ian Mendes of TSN 1200 Ottawa reports.
Paul's absence will test the Senators' depth up front, but it won't impact many fantasy lineups, as he's only picked up 13 points while averaging 14:25 of ice time in 38 games this campaign. The 24-year-old winger has already been placed on injured reserve, so news of his activation should precede his return to game action.
Paul (lower body) is expected to miss a couple of weeks after sustaining an injury in Tuesday's game against the Capitals, Tom Gulitti of NHL.com reports.
He fell awkwardly during the second period of Tuesday's game and will now be out for an extended time. Paul has 13 points in 38 contests this season and had recently skated in a second-line capacity. Per Gulitti, the winger had a walking boot on his right leg after the game.
Paul sustained a lower-body injury and won't return to Tuesday's game versus the Capitals.
Paul was injured during the second period after falling to the ice awkwardly on a missed hit against Dmitry Orlov. The 24-year-old Paul played 10:20 and fired three shots on net before exiting the game. There should be an update following the game, but if not, we'll have one ahead of Friday's clash versus the Red Wings.
Paul scored both of the Senators' goals in Monday's 5-2 loss to the Penguins.
Paul struck twice in the second period, but the Senators were unable to get closer than a one-goal deficit. The 24-year-old has three tallies in his last two games, along with six hits, but don't expect the hot streak to last long. Paul has career highs in points (12) and games played (35) this year, his first full campaign at the NHL level. The forward has added 80 hits and 62 shots on goal.
Paul scored his fourth goal of the season in Sunday's 4-3 overtime loss to New Jersey.
The goal was Paul's first point since Nov. 29. He's produced 10 points in 34 games this season. Considering the 24-year-old went an entire month without recording a point, it's safe to call Paul a non-factor in fantasy. He should not be owned outside of deeper formats.
Paul (neck) will draw into Saturday's game against the Flyers, Adam Kimelman of NHL.com reports.
Paul was considered questionable for the contest with a neck issue but will, fortunately, give it a go. He will slot in as the left wing on the fourth line, looking to build off of his nine points through 24 games played.
Paul (neck) was injured in the first period of Wednesday's game against the Oilers and will not return to the contest.
Paul was hurt on his second shift of the game, skating only 1:03 before heading to the locker room. If he's forced to miss time, Mikkel Boedker would likely enter the lineup in his place. The Senators' finish their road trip Saturday in Philadelphia, so there should be more information about Paul's status ahead of that game.
Paul tipped in a shot from Nikita Zaitsev in the first period against Minnesota on Friday for a 1-0 lead.
That's the first time Paul has found the twine since Oct. 27 and his first point since Nov. 13. He showed the ability to score in streaks when he put together six points in 10 games earlier this season, but don't expect anything similar this time around.
Paul collected an assist during Thursday's 3-2 overtime win over the Kings.
Paul fed Jean-Gabriel Pageau in overtime and moments later, the red light lit up. The win was Ottawa's fifth in the 2019-20 season. Meanwhile, Paul now has six points in 10 contests.
Paul scored twice, added a helper and went plus-4 in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Sharks.
This was easily the best game of the 24-year-old's young career. His second goal of the game would stand as the game-winner as well. Paul now has four points in six appearances, to go with 17 hits and 10 shots on goal. It's unlikely he'll have many three-point outbursts this year -- Paul registered only two points and a minus-10 rating in 20 games last season.
The Senators recalled Paul from AHL Belleville on Monday.
Ottawa brought up two forwards -- Paul and Jordan Szwarz -- from the AHL ranks to afford the team additional depth in the bottom-six ranks Monday against Minnesota with Artem Anisimov (lower body) expected to sit out. Over his 56 career games with Ottawa, Paul has compiled four goals and four assists.
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.
