Chlapik has been skating on Ottawa's second line during training camp, Brent Wallace of TSN.ca reports.
Chlapik struggled with the big club last season, notching just six points in 31 contests, but he was decent with AHL Belleville, picking up 10 goals and 22 points in 37 games. The 23-year-old is poised to skate on the Senators' second line and second power-play unit this season, so his NHL numbers should improve, but he likely won't score enough to be worthy of a roster spot in most fantasy formats.
Chlapik put pen to paper on a one-year, two-way deal with the Senators on Tuesday.
Chlapik is currently playing on loan with Sparta Praga in the Czech league but will rejoin the Senators for training camp. While the 23-year-old center should have a good chance of securing a spot on the 23-man roster, he's far from a lock and will have to work hard to earn his place.
Chlapik signed a deal to begin the 2020-21 campaign with Sparta Praha of the Czech league Tuesday, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.
Chlapik split time between the NHL and AHL in 2019-20, picking up six points in 31 games with the big club and 22 points in 37 minor-league appearances. The 23-year-old forward will head to the Czech Republic for now, but he'll be recalled ahead of next season's training camp and could be a full-time player for the Senators in 2020-21.
The Senators reassigned Chlapik to AHL Belleville on Wednesday.
Chlapik was brought up for Tuesday's game against the Predators, and the 22-year-old forward scored a goal on two shots in the 3-2 loss. If Anthony Duclair (undisclosed) and Colin White (undisclosed) aren't healthy for Thursday's matchup versus the Canucks, expect Chlapik to be recalled again.
Chlapik scored a goal on two shots in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to Nashville.
Chlapik was summoned from AHL Belleville earlier in the day and scored late in the first period to give the Senators a 2-1 lead. The 22-year-old has seen action in 31 games with Ottawa this season, collecting three goals and three assists.
Ottawa promoted Chlapik from AHL Belleville on Tuesday.
Anthony Duclair (undisclosed) isn't expected to play Tuesday against the Predators, so Chlapik will be on hand as an insurance policy. The 22-year-old forward has notched five points in 30 games with the big club this campaign.
Chlapik was demoted to AHL Belleville on Friday.
Chlapik logged 9:33 of ice time against the Coyotes on Thursday in which he registered one hit, one shot and one block. The center's reassignment should open the door for Mikkel Boedker or Scott Sabourin to get back into the lineup versus Toronto on Saturday.
The Senators recalled Chlapik from AHL Belleville on Sunday.
Both Jean-Gabriel Pageau (neck) and Bobby Ryan (not injury related) are uncertain to be available Monday against the Devils as the Senators kick off their post-All-Star break schedule, so Chlapik and Drake Batherson were summoned from the minors to provide some extra depth at forward. In 23 appearances at the NHL level this season, Chlapik has generated two goals and three assists.
Chlapik was assigned to AHL Belleville on Saturday, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.
Appearing in four games since being promoted to the top level, Chlapik failed to find the scoresheet. With the Senators on their bye week, it makes sense to assign him to the minors and maximize the number of reps afforded to the 22-year-old. He should rejoin the big club ahead of its game Jan. 27.
The Senators promoted Chlapik from AHL Belleville on Thursday.
Chlapik has bounced between the NHL and AHL throughout the campaign, notching five points in 18 games with the big club and 11 points in 20 appearances with Belleville. He could crack the Senators' lineup as soon as Friday against the Red Wings.
Chlapik was demoted to AHL Belleville on Wednesday.
Chlapik remains bogged down in a nine-game pointless streak, though he is averaging just 9:01 of ice time during that stretch. A few games in the minors could help the center rediscover his scoring touch and this is likely not the last we've seen of Chlapik in the NHL this year.
Chlapik netted a goal on three shots, dished three hits and added two PIM in Friday's 2-1 win over the Flyers.
Chlapik was busy for skating only 6:54 in the contest. His tally at 17:09 of the second period would stand as the game-winning goal. The fourth-liner has found a groove recently, with four points in his last five games and five points in nine appearances overall. He's also added 18 hits and eight PIM. Chlapik isn't known for consistent offense, but the Czech forward can mix it up physically.
Chlapik scored his first goal of the season in Saturday's 4-1 win over the Hurricanes.
The 22-year-old opened the scoring when James Reimer gave up a generous rebound on a shot by Jonathan Davidsson, which Chlapik happily hammered home. The 22-year-old has three points in six games since his latest promotion to the NHL, but as yet the 2015 second-round pick hasn't been able to escape the Senators' fourth line, giving him marginal fantasy value at best.
The Senators recalled Chlapik from their AHL affiliate Thursday.
Colin White is out long term with a hip flexor injury and Artem Anisimov will be sidelined for at least another week with a lower-body issue, so Chlapik could be in for an extended stay with the big club. The 22-year-old pivot has notched one goal while posting a minus-7 rating in six appearances with AHL Belleville this season.
The Senators assigned Chlapik to AHL Belleville on Monday.
Chlapik was just called up Sunday and he suited up against the Sharks. He added an appealing physical component with four hits over 6:06 of ice time. The 22-year-old will have a chance to play in Belleville's next game Friday, and he could rejoin the Senators for their upcoming three-game road trip starting Saturday in Boston.
Chlapik was called up from AHL Belleville and will play in Sunday's game against San Jose, Brent Wallace of TSN.ca reports.
Per Wallace, Chlapik arrived in Ottawa Sunday morning and was told he will be replacing veteran Bobby Ryan in the lineup. Chlapik has played just one game with the big club this season and registered an assist. It's unclear what line and role the 22-year-old will have for the clash.
Chlapik was sent down to AHL Belleville on Sunday.
Despite grabbing an assist in just 5:20 of action in the season opener, Chlapik served as a healthy scratch against the Rangers on Saturday. While his opportunities have been limited with Ottawa thus far, the center will likely be recalled ahead of Thursday's clash with St. Louis to provide additional forward depth.
Chlapik was reassigned to AHL Belleville on Friday.
Chlapik was with Ottawa long enough to slot into the lineup for Thursday's game against Calgary, recording three shots on goal and one blocked shot over 16:23 of ice time and 1:13 of power-play ice time. In the minors, the 21-year-old has 33 points (16 goals, 17 assists) over 48 games.
Chlapik was recalled from AHL Belleville on Thursday, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.
The Senators also promoted Vitali Abramov and defenseman Erik Brannstrom in an all-prospect transaction wave ahead of a road game against the Flames. A power forward with supreme offensive instincts, Chlapik has compiled 33 points (16 goals, 17 assists) through 48 games with the Baby Sens to complement his lone point (a goal) through four top-level games in 2018-19.
Chlapik was demoted to AHL Belleville on Tuesday.
This move suggests that either Colin White (upper body) will be ready to go Thursday in St. Louis or that recent signing Max Veronneau will be inserted into the forward ranks right away. For his part, Chlapik made the most of his most recent call-up with a goal in Monday's game against the Flyers. That was his first point in four NHL appearances this season.
