Description: Left wing Clarke MacArthur should be a solid contributer this season for the Senators.
Insight: He is coming off a 55-point season, and is firmly in the prime of his career, at 29-years-old. MacArthur could eventually see time on Ottawa's top line, making him a potential steal late in drafts.

Kyle Turris, C3/8/2014 6:36:00 PM
Description: Senators center Kyle Turris has scored a goal in two straight games.
Insight: Turris had just two points in eight games from Feb. 1 to March 4 after posting 10+ points in each of the first four months this season, but he's back on track. The 24-year-old has 21 goals and 46 points in 64 games this season.
Milan Michalek, LWHot3/8/2014 6:33:00 PM
Description: Senators left wing Milan Michalek has delivered eight points in his last eight games.
Insight: Michalek (11 G, 19 A) had a goal and two assists Saturday at Winnipeg, but he's still underachieving this season after putting up 74 points in 100 games the previous two seasons. His -21 doesn't help matters.
Jason Spezza, CHot3/8/2014 6:31:00 PM
Description: Senators center Jason Spezza had three helpers Saturday at Winnipeg.
Insight: Spezza has been active lately, recording 11 points and 26 SOG his last eight games. He has 50 points in 59 games, though his -22 damages his fantasy value.
Clarke MacArthur, LW3/8/2014 10:42:00 AM
Description: Senators left wing Clarke MacArthur will miss at least one week due to a bruised hand.
Insight: Although MacArthur had zero points in six February games he has a goal and an assist in three March games. His 44-point total in 60 games is good enough for fourth best on the Ottawa roster. Kyle Turris and Bobby Ryan will have to find another winger for the next few games, likely Mike Hoffman or Colin Greening.
Ales Hemsky, RW3/5/2014 12:34:00 PM
Description: The Senators have acquired Ales Hemsky from the Oilers for two draft picks.
Insight: Hemsky scored a pair of goals Tuesday night against his new team, but the 30-year-old only has 26 points (nine goals) and 94 SOG in 55 games.
Chris Phillips, D3/5/2014 12:26:00 PM
Description: Ottawa defenseman Chris Phillips has signed a two-year contract extension, according to Bob McKenzie of tsn.ca.
Insight: Phillips was either going to be traded or signed to an extension on Wednesday. The 35-year-old defenseman has one goal and 13 points this season and isn't a fantasy option.
Jason Spezza, CHot3/5/2014 10:05:00 AM
Description: Senators center Jason Spezza scored his 16th goal of the season Tuesday at Edmonton.
Insight: Spezza has delivered eight points in his last six games and has 47 points in 57 games this season. His -23 differential damages his fantasy value, however, and he would benefit from a trade before Wednesday's deadline.
Erik Karlsson, DHot3/5/2014 10:03:00 AM
Description: Ottawa defenseman Erik Karlsson has scored four goals in his last six games.
Insight: Karlsson has 17 goals, 57 points and 198 SOG in 62 games this season. He leads defensemen in the first two categories and ranks second in the third.
Clarke MacArthur, LW3/2/2014 7:18:00 PM
Description: Senators left wing Clarke MacArthur had a goal and an assist Sunday at Vancouver.
Insight: They were MacArthur's first points since Jan. 30. He had zero in six February games and stands at 44 points in 60 games.
Chris Phillips, D2/27/2014 2:43:00 PM
Description: Ottawa defenseman Chris Phillips should be ready to return on Thursday against Detroit. He should be paired with Cody Ceci.
Insight: He hasn't scored more than 19 points in a season since 2009-10 and shouldn't be on any fantasy rosters. He managed one goal and 12 assists in 49 games this season.
Clarke MacArthur, LW2/27/2014 2:40:00 PM
Description: Senators left wing Clarke MacArthur is probable for Thursday's game with Detroit.
Insight: MacArthur (18 G, 24 A) practiced with Kyle Turris and Erik Condra on Wednesday and should be ready to go.
Bobby Ryan, LWCold2/8/2014 9:27:00 PM
Description: Senators winger Bobby Ryan scored a goal Saturday at Boston.
Insight: Ryan had zero points in his last four games and will go into the Olympic break with just seven points in 17 games since the start of January.
Clarke MacArthur, LW2/8/2014 8:31:00 PM
Description: Senators left wing Clarke MacArthur left Saturday's game due to a foot injury, according to Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun.
Insight: MacArthur will have the entire Olympic break to rest his foot, so unless he suffered a fracture of some sort he'll be back in the ice when the NHL resumes its schedule.
Mark Stone, RW2/8/2014 9:45:00 AM
Description: Ottawa winger Mark Stone will work on his game in the minors while the NHL is on break.
Insight: Stone's only played seven games, earning two points, but he had been playing alongside Jason Spezza. He's not worth stashing at this time.
Milan Michalek, LW2/6/2014 10:08:00 PM
Description: Senators left wing Milan Michalek saved the best for last Thursday in a thrilling win over Buffalo.
Insight: Michalek (ten goals, 15 assists in 58 games) scored both of his goals in the third period with his second of the night coming just 21 seconds before the final whistle. Michalek's six shots on goal were a season-high.
Jason Spezza, CHot2/5/2014 11:05:00 AM
Description: Senators center Jason Spezza has generated 10 points (three goals) in his last eight games.
Insight: Spezza had three points Tuesday and has produced four multi-point games in his last seven. He has 42 points (15 goals), 150 SOG and 34 PIM in 52 games, but his career worst -21 differential hurts his value.
Chris Neil, RW2/1/2014 10:16:00 PM
Description: Ottawa right wing Chris Neil notched two goals in Saturday's 6-3 loss to the Maple Leafs.
Insight: That snaps a three-game scoreless drought for the veteran. Neil's assist in the second period was only his second of the season. He's had a tough season for the most part, collecting just ten points through his first 49 games.
Bobby Ryan, LW1/30/2014 10:20:00 PM
Description: Senators winger Bobby Ryan had his first multi-point game since Dec. 16 Thursday at Tampa Bay.
Insight: Ryan had a goal to give him his fifth 20-goal season and added an assist to give him 42 points in 54 games this season.
Kyle Turris, CHot1/30/2014 10:17:00 PM
Description: Senators center Kyle Turris had eight goals and 11 points in 12 January games.
Insight: The 24-year-old Turris had a goal and an assist Thursday, giving him 18 goals and 42 points in 54 games this season.
Stephane Da Costa, C1/28/2014 9:59:00 PM
Description: Ottawa center Stephane Da Costa lit the lamp twice in Tuesday night's win over the Blue Jackets.
Insight: Da Costa had been held scoreless in four games this season heading into tonight's game. He's only scored six goals in his career and we don't anticipate him being much of a factor down the stretch.
Chris Phillips, D1/28/2014 2:53:00 PM
Description: Ottawa defenseman Chris Phillips will miss Tuesday's game against Columbus with an undiscloed injury.
Insight: He hasn't scored more than 19 points in a season since 2009-10 and shouldn't be on any fantasy rosters. He managed one goal and 12 assists in 49 games this season.
Kyle Turris, CHot1/25/2014 5:25:00 PM
Description: Senators center Kyle Turris potted two goals Saturday and has scored seven goals in his last eight games.
Insight: The 24-year-old Turris has set career highs with 15 goals, 23 assists and 151 SOG in 52 games this season.
Mark Stone, RW1/23/2014 1:17:00 PM
Description: Ottawa winger Mark Stone was injured in Monday's practice (wrist/arm) and is questionable for Thursday's game against Tampa Bay.
Insight: Stone's only played seven games, earning two points, but he had been playing alongside Jason Spezza and Zack Smith.
Craig Anderson, G1/22/2014 9:37:00 AM
Description: Senators goalie Craig Anderson came up with a 34-save shutout Tuesday at Washington.
Insight: Anderson came in with a 2.81 GAA in his previous six games and was playing a Capitals team skating without Alex Ovechkin, so fantasy owners shouldn't read too much into the shutout. Anderson still has just a 3.09 GAA and .905 SV% this season.
Jesse Winchester, RW1/20/2014 11:28:00 AM
Description: Panthers winger Jesse Winchester (hand) may be activated from injured reserve for Monday's game against Pittsburgh.
Insight: Winchester has five goals, four assists and 25 PIM in 26 games which doesn't make him fantasy worthy.
Chris Neil, RW1/17/2014 8:12:00 PM
Description: Senators winger Chris Neil (hamstring) will return to the lineup Saturday, according to Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun.
Insight: Neil missed the last six games. The 34-year-old has just six points (five goals) but he has helped fantasy owners with 99 PIM in 42 games.
Clarke MacArthur, LWHot1/16/2014 10:32:00 PM
Description: Senators left wing Clarke MacArthur had two more points, including a goal, Thursday against Montreal.
Insight: The 28-year-old MacArthur has scored a goal in six of his last seven games and has 36 points (17 goals) in 47 games this season.
Kyle Turris, CHot1/16/2014 10:30:00 PM
Description: Sens center Kyle Turris scored again Thursday.
Insight: He's put the puck in the net in four straight games and has 14 goals this season. The Turris-Bobby Ryan-Clarke MacArthur line is on fire once again and produced three goals Thursday.
Erik Karlsson, DHot1/16/2014 10:27:00 PM
Description: Ottawa defenseman Erik Karlsson reclaimed the defensemen scoring lead from Chicago's Duncan Keith with three points (1 G, 2 A) Thursday against the Canadiens.
Insight: The goal was Karlsson's 11th of the season, and he now has 46 points in 48 games. A -11 is his only blemish.
Clarke MacArthur, LWHot1/14/2014 10:48:00 PM
Description: Senators left wing Clarke MacArthur saw his four-game scoring streak snapped Saturday, but he started a new one Tuesday with his 16th goal of the season.
Insight: The 28-year-old MacArthur has 34 points, 42 PIM, 94 SOG and a +12 differential this season.
Kyle Turris, CHot1/14/2014 10:46:00 PM
Description: Ottawa center Kyle Turris has scored a goal in three straight games. His tally Tuesday was his 13th of the year, a new career high.
Insight: He had two points Tuesday, giving him 13 in his last 15 games. The 24-year-old already has set a career high with 36 points this season.
Robin Lehner, G1/14/2014 10:44:00 PM
Description: Senators backup goalie Robin Lehner blanked the Wild Tuesday night with 27 saves.
Insight: Lehner was putting some pressure on starter Craig Anderson, but then he allowed five goals in his last two starts and hadn't started since Dec. 27 before Tuesday's dominant performance.
Chris Neil, RW1/14/2014 2:55:00 PM
Description: Ottawa winger Chris Neil will be a game-time decision Tuesday. He's dealing with a hamstring injury.
Insight: Neil best helps fantasy owners with his 99 PIM in 42 games as he's not great offensively with just six points and a -5 rating.
Jason Spezza, C1/8/2014 3:03:00 PM
Description: Senators center Jason Spezza (hip flexor) will return to the lineup Wednesday.
Insight: Spezza missed the last four games. He has 11 goals and 30 points in 39 games, but his -14 hurts his fantasy value.
Jason Spezza, C1/4/2014 3:39:00 PM
Description: Senators center Jason Spezza (hip flexor) will sit out Saturday, according to Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun.
Insight: Spezza stayed in Ottawa to skate and receive treatment. He'll miss his fourth straight game Saturday at Montreal.
Jason Spezza, C1/3/2014 10:35:00 AM
Description: Senators center Jason Spezza (hip flexor) has missed three straight games, but said he doesn't expect it to be a long-term injury. SOURCE: tsn.ca
Insight: Spezza doesn't have a timetable for his return but said he is making progress. Her's a big-time point scorer with 11 goals and 19 assists in 39 games, but after missing all but five games last season the team is likely to play it conservatively.
Bobby Ryan, LW1/2/2014 7:28:00 PM
Description: Senators winger Bobby Ryan was irked by comments released in an ESPN.com feature detailing a five-month process of the selection of the USA Olympic men's hockey team. In the article, director of player personnel Brian Burke was quoted as saying that Ryan is "a passive guy" and "not intense." Ryan was one of the biggest names not selected for the team. SOURCE: tsn.ca
Insight: "It was kinda gutless," Ryan said. "I almost feel degraded when it comes out like that. It is what it is -- that's their decision and that's how they feel about me." The feature also said that another selection committee member called Ryan a "sleepy" skater. "They were direct quotes," said Ryan. "It's unfortunate they feel that way. They've got to form a team. I guess to a certain degree you have to respect it. You don't have to agree with it, right? I certainly don't. They could have just cut me." Ryan is on track for his fifth career 30-goal season, but he's coming off a December in which he had just 11 points in 16 games. The Team USA snub should provide plenty of motivation.
Jason Spezza, C1/2/2014 7:14:00 PM
Description: Senators center Jason Spezza (hip) will miss his third straight game Thursday but said he doesn't expect it to be a long-term injury. SOURCE: tsn.ca
Insight: Spezza is dealing with a hip flexor injury. He doesn't have a timetable for his return but said he is making progress. "We want to make sure that I squash it so that it's like anything, groins, hips, you don't want them to linger," Spezza said.
Jason Spezza, C12/30/2013 2:12:00 PM
Description: Senators center Jason Spezza (hip) missed Saturday's game and will also miss Monday's game against the Capitals.
Insight: Spezza has 11 goals and 30 points in 39 games, but also owns a dismal -14 rating on the season. He's been close to a point-per-game center for the last nine years.
Chris Phillips, D12/30/2013 2:09:00 PM
Description: Ottawa defenseman Chris Phillips is out for Monday's game against Washington with a foot injury, according to the Ottawa Sun.
Insight: He hasn't scored more than 19 points in a season since 2009-10 and shouldn't be on any fantasy rosters. He managed one goal and 11 assists in 39 games this season.
Patrick Wiercioch, D12/28/2013 10:03:00 PM
Description: Ottawa D Patrick Wiercioch has eight points in his last 13 games.
Insight: That includes three goals, one of which came Saturday in a win over Boston. Deep league owners in need of blue-line help should give the 23-year-old a try.
Mika Zibanejad, C12/28/2013 7:15:00 PM
Description: Senators forward Mika Zibanejad (upper body) played just 13 minutes Friday but he'll need to skate on the top line Saturday with Jason Spezza (lower body) out.
Insight: Zibanejad missed two games before returning Friday. He has eight goals and 15 points in 30 games and has been shuffled on all of Ottawa's lines this season.
Jason Spezza, C12/28/2013 7:01:00 PM
Description: Senators center Jason Spezza (lower body) will miss Saturday's game, according to Elliotte Friedman of Hockey Night in Canada.
Insight: Spezza only has 11 goals and 30 points in 39 games and also is a -14 on the season.
Robin Lehner, G12/27/2013 3:56:00 PM
Description: Senators backup goalie Robin Lehner will get the start Friday at Boston.
Insight: Lehner was putting some pressure on starter Craig Anderson but then he allowed five goals on 33 shots on Dec. 18 at New Jersey and Anderson picked up a shutout on Dec. 23. Lehner is 5-8-3 with a 2.54 GAA And a .926 SV%.
Mika Zibanejad, C12/27/2013 2:24:00 PM
Description: Senators forward Mika Zibanejad will be a game-time decision Friday due to an upper-body injury.
Insight: Zibanejad missed the past two games. He has eight goals and 15 points in 29 games this season and has been shuffled on all of Ottawa's lines this season.
Erik Karlsson, DHot12/23/2013 10:32:00 PM
Description: Ottawa defenseman Erik Karlsson had a goal and two assists Monday against the Penguins.
Insight: Karlsson has eight points over his last six games. He's attempted 124 SOG this season, second among defensemen. The only thing hurting his fantasy value is a minus differential, but he helped that out with a +2 Monday to bring it up to -8 on the year.
Craig Anderson, G12/23/2013 10:29:00 PM
Description: Senators goalie Craig Anderson blocked all 27 shots the Penguins sent his way Monday for his second shutout of the season (first since the first game of the season).
Insight: Anderson has been dreadful this season, posting a 3.42 GAA and .897 SV% in 24 starts going into Monday's game, so shutting out an offense the caliber of Pittsburgh's is huge for the 32-year-old.
Mika Zibanejad, C12/21/2013 12:08:00 PM
Description: Senators forward Mika Zibanejad is questionable for Saturday's game against Phoenix with an upper body injury.
Insight: Zibanejad has eight goals and seven assists in 29 games this season which is a similar pace to last season, but a -8 rating as compared to +9 last year is a problem for fantasy owners.
