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.

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.

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.

Senators' Drake Batherson: Excelling at top level
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Batherson converted a power-play scoring chance to complement an even-strength assist in Monday's 7-5 home loss to the Panthers.

Batherson -- who was Ottawa's fourth-round (121st overall) selection from the 2017 draft -- appears unfazed by the heightened competition of the NHL. He's uncorked two goals, three assists and a plus-2 rating over his first three games at the top level, and the prospect's profile looks even better when you consider he's garnered a pair of power-play goals between nearly three minutes of man-advantage ice time. Look no further if you need help on the wing and Batherson is available in your fantasy league.

Senators' Drake Batherson: Scores power-play goal in NHL debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Batherson's second-period goal on the power play was the winning marker in a 2-1 victory over Detroit on Thursday.

Welcome to the NHL, kid. Batherson took his first step to justifying the talk around him by scoring the game-winner in his first taste of action at the NHL level despite just 10:47 of ice time. It's still a little early to trust him in most leagues, but in dynasty leagues, he needs to be on your roster if he's still available.

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

Batherson was recalled from AHL Belleville on Monday.

Selected in the fourth round of the 2017 NHL Draft, Batherson quickly put his name on the radar during last season's QMJHL playoffs, leading the junior league with 33 points in 22 postseason contests. His momentum carried into this season with AHL Belleville, where he scored seven goals and 20 points in 14 games. The 6-foot-2 forward is considered one of the best prospects in Ottawa's organization and appears ready to make an impact at the NHL level.

Senators' Drake Batherson: Continues to tear up QMJHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Batherson picked up a hat trick in QMJHL Blainville-Boisbriand's 5-4 win over Drummondville on Friday.

A gold medalist with Team Canada in the recently completed World Juniors, Batherson now has five goals and 17 points in 10 games with the Armada after his trade from Cape Breton in early January. A fourth-round pick of Ottawa in 2016, Batherson has gone from a virtual unknown to a quality prospect in less than a year. His overall numbers this season (22 goals, 56 points in 34 games) are exceptional and Batherson's transition to the professional ranks in 2018-19 should be fascinating to watch.

Senators' Drake Batherson: Caps off WJC with game-winning helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Batherson assisted on the game-winning goal during Team Canada's 3-1 win over Sweden in the final of the 2018 World Junior Championship in Buffalo.

There's a legitimate case that no player skyrocketed their prospect status more than Batherson during this tournament. He finished with seven goals and an assist, and after showing high-end skill and finesse leading into the championship game, his board work and physicality were on full display Friday. With under two minutes remaining in regulation against the Swedes, Batherson won a puck battle down low in the offensive zone to record the secondary assist on Tyler Steenburgen's game-winning tally. The 19-year-old QMJHL star is slated to be dealt to Blainville-Boisbriand Armada following the tournament, and being closer to Ottawa bodes well for Batherson's career trajectory in the pros. The Sens appear to have landed a late-blooming gem in the fourth round of the 2017 draft. Dynasty owners will want to check his availability.
