Senators' Dillon Heatherington: In COVID-19 protocols
Heatherington has been placed in the NHL's COVID-19 protocols, TSN 1200 Ottawa reports.
According to the report, Heatherington was a close contact, rather than a positive test, so he could be an option in the near future though he'll miss over versus New Jersey on Monday. In four appearances for the Sens this season, the 26-year-old blueliner has yet to get his name on the scoresheet and shouldn't be expected to offer much in the way of fantasy value even once cleared to play....

Senators' Anton Forsberg: Gets second straight win
Forsberg made 26 saves in a 6-5 shootout win over the Avs on Saturday.
The first period was even, but his mates gave him a 5-3 lead heading into the third. Forsberg bent, but didn't break, and got his team to the extra frame. He now has two straight wins and they've been against the Canes and Avs, two formidable teams. It won't last forever, but right now, Forsberg is dialled in.... See More ... See Less
Senators' Brady Tkachuk: Big three-point effort carries win
Tkachuk scored two goals and added an assist in Saturday's 6-5 overtime win over Colorado.
Tkachuk's second goal of the game came on a snap shot on a breakaway 51 seconds into overtime to deliver the win. He is riding a three-game, five-point scoring streak that includes three goals. The Sens are a hot mess, but Tkachuk is delivering strong offensive production and leadership, and managing to stay in the black with his plus-minus (plus 2). The power play is still a desert for Tkachuk, who has zero points with the extra player. That will come once the team settles a bit.... See More ... See Less
Senators' Tim Stutzle: Big-game player against Avs
Stutzle scored two goals and added an assist in Saturday's 6-5 overtime win over Colorado.
Stutzle scored his first on a breakaway in the second. It was originally called off because the puck went over the line after the net came off its moorings. But video review overturned the call on the ice after it became clear Jack Johnson made the net come off. Stutzle then delivered his second with a wrister on the power play. The points snapped a four-game point drought, but the young star has struggled since the start of October. In 15 games since then, Stutzle has just seven points, three of which came Saturday. Perhaps this outburst is the dam breaking.... See More ... See Less
Senators' Anton Forsberg: Tending twine Saturday
Forsberg will protect the home goal versus the Avalanche on Saturday, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.
Forsberg has gone 2-4-0 with a 3.97 GAA and a .900 save percentage in his seven games this season. Even with Nazem Kadri (undisclosed) out, the Avalanche will post a huge challenge, making Forsberg an unfavorable option in fantasy.... See More ... See Less
Senators' Dillon Heatherington: Back with big club
Heatherington was recalled by the Senators on Saturday.
Heatherington is expected to slot into a bottom-pairing role for Saturday's matchup with Colorado. He's gone scoreless through three top-level appearances this year.... See More ... See Less
Senators' Tyler Ennis: Deuces wild in Carolina
Ennis had two assists, two shots, two hits and a plus-2 rating in Thursday's 3-2 win over the Hurricanes.
Ennis set up both of Alex Formenton's goals, as the Senators got some rare contributions from their fourth line. It was the first multi-point performance since Opening Night for the diminutive forward, though Ennis is quietly on pace to top 40 points with a goal and 10 assists through 19 games.... See More ...

Senators' Alex Formenton: Strikes twice in rare win
Formenton scored twice on two shots in Thursday's 3-2 win over the Hurricanes.
Talk about efficiency. Formenton needed just two shots and 9:41 of ice time to double his season goal total, helping Ottawa snap a six-game losing streak. Perhaps the 22-year-old winger still has another level to his game that he's yet to unlock, but Formenton's current fourth-line role on one of the league's worst teams just doesn't cut it for fantasy purposes....

Senators' Anton Forsberg: Busy in road win
Forsberg made 47 saves in Thursday's 3-2 win over the Hurricanes.
It was the Forsberg and Alex Formenton show for the Senators, as the former made save after save and the latter gave Ottawa a 2-0 lead. Formenton's second goal 9:05 into the third period seemed destined to secure the win, but the Hurricanes managed to tie it less than five minutes later with two goals in a span of 1:45. Just 19 seconds after the game-tying goal, Josh Norris restored Ottawa's lead for good, and Forsberg shut the door from there to end the Senators' losing streak at six games. The Swede has made at least 46 saves in both of his wins this season, but his 2-4-0 record and 3.98 GAA suggests the occasional brilliant performance is overshadowed by his usual clunkers behind Ottawa's porous defense....

Senators' Anton Forsberg: In goal Thursday
Forsberg will get the starting nod versus the Hurricanes on the road Thursday, TSN 1200 Ottawa reports.
Forsberg is winless in his last five appearances, as he is sporting a 0-4-0 record and disastrous 5.18 GAA. With a back-to-back on the schedule, the club has little choice but to roll with Forsberg versus a Canes squad that is scoring 3.19 goals per game, unless the Senators want to bring back Matt Murray from the minors....

Senators' Victor Mete: Gathers assist in loss
Mete notched an assist and two PIM in Wednesday's 6-2 loss to the Canucks.
Mete set up Brady Tkachuk for a third-period goal Wednesday. The 23-year-old Mete snapped a four-game point drought with his helper. The defenseman has five helpers, 12 shots on net, 16 blocked shots and a minus-11 rating in 14 appearances this year. He's unlikely to see more than a bottom-four role.... See More ... See Less
Senators' Chris Tierney: Posts power-play assist
Tierney recorded a power-play assist in Wednesday's 6-2 loss to the Canucks.
Tierney helped out on Adam Gaudette's first-period marker. In 13 games since the start of November, Tierney has produced just three points. He's at seven points, 25 shots on net, a minus-10 rating and four PIM through 20 contests overall. Even power-play time hasn't done much to help the 27-year-old's cause on offense this year.... See More ... See Less
Senators' Connor Brown: Snags assist in loss
Brown posted a power-play assist and two PIM in Wednesday's 6-2 loss to the Canucks.
Brown set up Adam Gaudette's goal in the first period. The 27-year-old Brown has picked up two goals and two assists in his last five games. The winger has somewhat quietly earned 11 points (four on the power play) in 16 contests while working in a top-six role. He plays in all situations and could be a useful depth forward in fantasy.... See More ... See Less
Senators' Josh Norris: Picks up helper Wednesday
Norris registered an assist and three shots on goal in Wednesday's 6-2 loss to the Canucks.
Norris drew the secondary helper on Brady Tkachuk's third-period tally. With two goals and three assists in his last seven games, Norris has been solid on offense. The 22-year-old center has 14 points, 52 shots, 24 hits and a minus-2 rating through 20 contests overall.... See More ... See Less
