Senators' Drake Batherson: Another two-point effort
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Batherson registered a goal and an assist in Tuesday's 5-4 shootout win over Montreal. He also added two PIM and two hits.

Batherson picked up both of his points in the game's first 10 minutes. It was the second consecutive two-point game for the 22-year-old, who is on a three-game point streak (three goals, two assists). Batherson has 12 points in 21 games on the season.

Senators' Drake Batherson: Plays pivotal role in OT win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Batherson scored a goal on four shots and added an assist in Sunday's 3-2 overtime win over Montreal.

Batherson got the Senators on the board midway through the period. He also drew the primary assist on Brady Tkachuk's overtime winner. Batherson has lit the lamp in back-to-back games and in three of his last four. The 22-year-old has four goals and six assists through 20 contests in 2020-21.

Senators' Drake Batherson: Nets power-play goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Batherson scored a power-play goal on two shots and added four PIM in Sunday's 8-5 loss to the Oilers.

Consider this a neutral performance from Batherson -- he scored his first goal, but one of his minor penalties led to an Oilers goal as well. The 22-year-old Batherson is up to five points, 25 shots on goal and 16 hits with a minus-6 rating in nine outings. The physicality and a role in the top six could make the Indiana native a viable option in deeper fantasy formats.

Senators' Drake Batherson: Two helpers to open season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Batherson recorded two assists, one on the power play, in Friday's 5-3 win over the Maple Leafs.

The 22-year-old has yet to spend a full season in the NHL, bouncing back and forth from AHL Belleville, but this could be the year he sticks. Batherson is skating on a young guns line with Brady Tkachuk and Joshua Norris, and the trio combined for six points Friday in the Sens' season opener. While he doesn't have the draft pedigree of his linemates, Batherson could still be poised for a breakout campaign.

Senators' Drake Batherson: Returns to Ottawa to start season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Batherson, as expected, will be on Ottawa's opening-night roster, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

Batherson split his time between Ottawa and AHL Belleville last season. His value remains highest in dynasty leagues, and he could be worth a flier in redraft leagues if he gets off to a decent start and earns the trust of coach D.J. Smith.

Senators' Drake Batherson: Bumped to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Senators reassigned Batherson to AHL Belleville on Sunday.

This news is evidence that both Tyler Ennis (not injury related) and Vladislav Namestnikov (not injury related) are likely to return to the lineup for Monday's game against Columbus. Batherson has been solid for the Senators this campaign, racking up 10 points in 23 games.

Senators' Drake Batherson: Produces two points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Batherson posted a goal and an assist in Tuesday's 7-4 win over the Sabres.

Batherson lit the lamp in the first period to give the team a lead, and he added an insurance helper on Jean-Gabriel Pageau's power-play goal in the third frame. The 2017 fourth-round pick has adjusted well to the NHL ranks, as he's registered 10 points through 21 games this year. It appears he's earned a full-time gig with the big club, too, as he's played in 18 straight games.

Senators' Drake Batherson: Finding his offensive game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Batherson tallied a power-play goal on three shots and added three hits in Tuesday's 3-2 shootout loss to the Ducks.

The 21-year-old is starting to hit his stride at the NHL level, picking up five points (one goal, four assists) in his last five games. He's only generated seven shots on goal in those five games, but the recent uptick in production is an encouraging sign nonetheless.

Senators' Drake Batherson: Doling out helpers since recall
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Batherson registered two assists with one shot and four hits in Tuesday's 5-2 win over Buffalo.

The 21-year-old was recalled from AHL Belleville on Sunday and has made an immediate impact with three assists in his first two games. Batherson, who is in his third stint with the Senators this season, racked up 14 goals and 32 assists in 37 games for Belleville. He should get an extended look with the big club the rest of the way, particularly if the Senators ship out any veteran forwards at next month's trade deadline.

Senators' Drake Batherson: Called up from Belleville
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Senators recalled Batherson from AHL Belleville on Sunday.

Ottawa will bring Batherson and Filip Chlapik back from the minors as the Senators kick off their second-half slate with a matchup Monday against the Devils. Batherson, 21, has skated in nine games for Ottawa this season, totaling two points and six PIM.

January 18, 2020 07:44 PM
Senators' Drake Batherson: Shipped to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Batherson was assigned to AHL Belleville on Saturday, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

The 21-year-old has just two points in eight games this season, but Batherson is precisely the type of young talent the Senators want to spend this year evaluating. He'll continue getting reps in the minors through the team's bye week and should rejoin Ottawa ahead of its game Jan. 27.

Senators' Drake Batherson: Gets promotion Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Senators recalled Batherson from AHL Belleville on Saturday, Brent Wallace of TSN.ca reports.

Batherson made the Opening Night roster and played two games before being shipped to bus league. The 21-year-old has lit up the minor-league ranks, as he's generated 13 goals and 41 points over 33 contests. With Anthony Duclair (undisclosed) a game-time decision, Batherson could crack the lineup Saturday versus the Lightning.

Senators' Drake Batherson: Shipped down to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Batherson was reassigned to AHL Belleville on Sunday.

Batherson posted a disastrous minus-4 rating in the season opener against Toronto and was relatively absent versus the Rangers on Saturday. Still, the winger -- who was sent down to the minors alongside Filip Chlapik -- will likely find himself back up with the big club prior to Thursday's matchup with the Blues.

Senators' Drake Batherson: Makes Opening Night roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

As expected, Batherson has secured a spot on the Senators' 23-man roster.

Batherson is expected to be one of the lone bright spots for Ottawa this season. The 21-year-old American was highly productive in the AHL last season, racking up 22 goals and 62 points in 59 appearances, and is expected to fill a middle-six role while seeing time on the No. 1 power-play unit with the big club this campaign. The 2017 fourth-round pick is definitely worth a flier in redraft leagues and a must-own commodity in dynasty formats.

Senators' Drake Batherson: Sent back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Batherson was re-assigned to AHL Belleville on Friday.

Batherson was called up to the big leagues Thursday to provide depth in Rudolfs Balcers' (illness) absence. The American winger ended up logging an assist over 11:48 of ice time, and perhaps prompted the parent club to evaluate his role. For now, however, Batherson will play in the minor leagues.

February 28, 2019 10:48 AM
Senators' Drake Batherson: Promoted from minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Batherson was called up from AHL Belleville on Thursday, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

With Rudolfs Balcers (illness) under the weather, Batherson figures to slot into the lineup against Edmonton on Thursday. In his previous stints with Ottawa, the 20-year-old racked up eight points, 18 shots and 16 hits in 19 outings. Heading down the stretch, the organization may want to give Batherson a longer look in order to evaluate the winger's spot in its rebuild.

Senators' Drake Batherson: Sent to AHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Batherson was one of four players returned to AHL Belleville on Monday, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

NHL rules state that a player who is on his club's NHL roster at the deadline may not be returned to his AHL club for the remainder of the season, so this move is likely to give Batherson a shot to play in the Calder Cup playoffs, where Belleville is one point out of the last playoff slot in its division. Should the B-Sens fall short of postseason play, Batherson will likely be promoted back to Ottawa.

Senators' Drake Batherson: Promoted to NHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Batherson was called up from AHL Belleville on Friday, Dean Brown of the Senators Radio Network reports.

Batherson and Logan Brown were summoned from the team's top developmental affiliate since the Senators are likely to sell off a couple of big-name assets ahead of the trade deadline. Nabbed by the Senators in the fourth round (121st overall) of the 2017 draft, Batherson received a call-up in mid-November and ended up producing three goals and five assists through his first 17 NHL games. Depending on how the trades shake out, Batherson could be an option to stick with the parent club for the remainder of the season since this team has virtually no chance of making the playoffs.

Senators' Drake Batherson: Bound for AHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Batherson was reassigned to AHL Belleville on Tuesday.

Batherson teased fantasy owners by producing two goals and three helpers over his first three NHL games, only to slump through four- and eight-game point droughts in subsequent stretches leading up to his demotion. Still, there's plenty to like about Batherson's long-term upside. We're talking about a guy who cranked out 51 goals and 86 assists over 122 games in the QMJHL and led that league in assists (20) and points (33) in the 2017-18 campaign.

Senators' Drake Batherson: Thriving alongside Duchene
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Batherson recorded a goal and an assist in Thursday's 3-0 win over the Rangers.

Batherson's loving life on the top line alongside a red-hot Matt Duchene. The rookie snapped a four-game point drought by scoring just 2:06 into the opening frame, then assisted on Duchene's second-period tally to bring his point total to seven through eight NHL games. As long as Batherson stays by Duchene's side, he deserves serious consideration in most formats.
