Senators' Christian Wolanin: Goes scoreless before hiatus
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wolanin appeared in three games without recording a point before the season was paused.

Wolanin spent most of the year out with a shoulder injury, so his season gets a pass after he didn't reach the NHL until the final week of action before the hiatus. Ottawa isn't in any rush with him, so he's still got some time before he becomes a fantasy contributor.

Senators' Christian Wolanin: Back with big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ottawa promoted Wolanin from AHL Belleville on Friday, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

Wolanin has yet to appear in an NHL contest in 2019-20, but he could make his season debut as soon as Saturday against San Jose. The 24-year-old blueliner picked up four goals and 12 points in 30 games with the big club last campaign.

Senators' Christian Wolanin: Demoted to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wolanin (shoulder) was reassigned to AHL Belleville on Monday.

Wolanin began the year on the non-roster, injured reserve list, so his demotion to the minors indicates he is ready to resume playing. The Quebec native figures to spend some time with AHL Belleville in order to get back up to speed but should be atop the short list of potential recalls once fully fit.

Senators' Christian Wolanin: Joins teammates at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wolanin (shoulder) took part in Wednesday's practice session for the first time since his injury, Ian Mendes of TSN 1200 Ottawa reports.

Wolanin remains on track for a mid-February return, but fans will no doubt be happy to see him back on the ice. Once cleared to play, the Quebec native may have to spend some time in the minors, yet could slot into the lineup for Ottawa before the end of the 2019-20 campaign.

Senators' Christian Wolanin: Targeting mid-February return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wolanin (shoulder) is expected to be ready to play by mid-February, at which point he'll report to AHL Belleville, Wayne Scanlan of the Ottawa Citizen reports.

Wolanin is still recovering from the torn labrum he sustained in September. There will only be approximately six weeks remaining in the season once Wolanin is cleared to play, so he likely won't see any action at the NHL level this year. If that ends up being the case, the 24-year-old will set his sights on securing a spot on the 2020-21 Opening Night roster.

Senators' Christian Wolanin: Will miss four months minimum
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wolanin suffered a torn labrum that will keep him on the shelf for at least the next four months, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

At best, Wolanin could be available in mid-January, though working his way into the lineup after such a long layoff could be tough. The blueliner was poised to take the next step in his development this year and figured to play in more than the 30 games he logged last year. In those appearances, the Quebec City native notched 12 points, 36 shots and 31 blocks and very well could have topped each of those numbers this year. With Wolanin out of the mix, Erik Brannstrom and Christian Jaros will likely battle for the sixth spot on the blue line.

Senators' Christian Wolanin: Out with torn labrum
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wolanin was seen with a sling on his arm at practice and is confirmed out with a torn labrum, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

Wolanin was expected to compete for ice time this season with the rebuilding Senators, but that's not going to happen until at least January now. This injury means he can safely be ignored for the time being.

Senators' Christian Wolanin: Signs two-year deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wolanin secured a two-year, $1.8 million contract extension with the Senators on Thursday.

Wolanin's deal is a two-way contract in the first year, but converts to a one-way deal in the second, which will likely ensure the blueliner's spot on the 23-man roster. Even with the flexibility in 2019-20, the departures of Ben Harpur and Cody Ceci could open the door for Wolanin to log significant time in the NHL this season.

Senators' Christian Wolanin: Earns qualifying offer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wolanin received a qualifying offer from the Senators on Thursday, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

Wolanin played in 30 NHL games this season, in which he tallied four goals, eight assists and three power-play points, and he could take on a bigger role in 2019-20. If the blueliner can't agree to a long-term deal, his qualifying offer would earn him $874,125 while remaining two-way in nature. In order to prevent himself from spending time in the minors, the 23-year-old might be willing to take less money on a one-way contract.

Senators' Christian Wolanin: Reassigned to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wolanin was sent down to AHL Belleville on Friday.

Wolanin will join Belleville for the final five games of the season, as the club tries to earn a spot in the Calder Cup playoffs. The blueliner appeared in 30 games for Ottawa this season, registering four goals, eight helpers and 31 blocks while averaging 17:20 of ice time. With no unrestricted free agents on the blue line this summer, Wolanin could struggle to earn more ice time next year and may find himself serving as a healthy scratch more often than not.

Senators' Christian Wolanin: Prospect promoted again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wolanin was called up from AHL Belleville on Wednesday, Don Brennan of the Ottawa Sun reports.

This move was made because Ben Harpur will miss the evening's game against the Rangers due to an illness. As a prospect taken in the fourth round (107th overall) of the 2015 NHL Entry Draft, Wolanin is a sneaky player to target in DFS formats, especially since he's shown well in limited action. We're talking about four goals and eight assists -- including three power-play assists -- through 28 top-level contests this season.

Senators' Christian Wolanin: Sent back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Senators opted to reassign Wolanin to AHL Belleveille on Tuesday.

Despite notching seven points in the last 14 games, Wolanin owns just a plus-1 rating over that span and a minus-6 mark over the last seven contests. A liability on the back end, the Senators replaced Wolanin with Andreas Englund, who will fill out the defensive group heading into a two-game road trip Wednesday and Thursday.

Senators' Christian Wolanin: Three points in last six games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wolanin scored the game-winning goal Thursday in a 2-0 win over St. Louis.

He's been sharp since his call-up and has three points (one goal, two assists) in his last six games. Wolanin's audition for a full-time gig in 2019-20 is on. He could deliver some sneaky fantasy value given his minor-league success.

Senators' Christian Wolanin: Packs bags for big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Senators recalled Wolanin from AHL Belleville on Sunday.

Wolanin has played in 12 games with the big club this season, registering three goals and two helpers in the process. His minor-league success has been just as impressive with 26 points in 35 games. He'll likely immediately slot into the lineup for Sunday's game versus the Flames.

Senators' Christian Wolanin: Redirected to Belleville
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wolanin was reassigned to AHL Belleville on Wednesday.

Selected in the fourth round (107th overall) of the 2015 draft, Wolanin has accumulated three goals to complement a pair of assists through 12 games with the NHL's Senators this season. His shooting percentage (21.4) is off the charts, and while it will be difficult for him to sustain that gaudy mark upon his return to the big stage, it's clear that the defenseman has a bright NHL future. Wolanin heading back to the minors is the result of the NHL team having no more games until Feb. 1.

Senators' Christian Wolanin: Grabs first goal of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wolanin scored a goal on three shots, adding a hit and a plus-1 rating in Wednesday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Canucks.

It's his first goal of the season in just his fourth game since being recalled from AHL Belleville. Wolanin will likely only stick around in Ottawa until the roster gets a bit healthier, however -- the team was forced to use 11 forwards and seven defensemen Wednesday, something that will probably get rectified quickly.

Senators' Christian Wolanin: Brought up to big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Senators recalled Wolanin from AHL Belleville on Saturday.

Thomas Chabot is currently sidelined with an upper-body injury, so Wolanin may slot into the lineup immediately Saturday against the Capitals. The 2015 fourth-round pick has been productive in the minors this campaign, racking up five goals and 18 points in 26 appearances.

Senators' Christian Wolanin: Reassigned to AHL Belleville
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wolanin was shipped back to the minors Thursday.

Wolanin was unable to hit the ice for the Senators during his call-up, so the team will send him down to AHL Belleville to get some game action. The blueliner was flipped for Erik Burgdoerfer, who will get a shot at cracking the lineup against the Sabres on Thursday.

Senators' Christian Wolanin: Promoted from minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wolanin was called up from AHL Belleville on Thursday.

With Mark Borowiecki (suspension) unavailable, the Senators have decided to bolster their blue line rather than promote an additional forward, so it's possible the club opts to dress seven defensemen against the Avalanche on Friday.

Senators' Christian Wolanin: Skips back to AHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wolanin was reassigned to AHL Belleville on Friday, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

The University of North Dakota product recorded one goal and two helpers over 10 games of his debut season with the Senators in 2017-18. Wolanin is physical and does well creating open space from the blue line, but it appears the 2015 fourth-round (107th overall) pick will start out the new season in the minors. Given how often injuries surface across the NHL, it still might not take long for Wolanin to reemerge on hockey's grandest stage.
