  • Senators' Leevi Merilainen: Returns to AHL

    Merilainen was reassigned to AHL Belleville on Saturday.

    Merilainen was called up as the backup due to the Senators' top two goalies being out Saturday. The 21-year-old will probably not be called back up if Joonas Korpisalo (illness) heads west on the team's road trip.

  • Senators' Leevi Merilainen: Back at top level

    Merilainen was recalled from AHL Belleville on Saturday.

    Joonas Korpisalo was unable to start Friday due to an illness. Merilainen is 7-6-1 with a 3.02 GAA and a .904 save percentage in 16 AHL appearances this season. The Senators are quite high on the 20-year-old Finnish netminder after selecting him in the third round of the 2020 Draft.

  • Senators' Leevi Merilainen: Returned to AHL

    Merilainen was sent to AHL Belleville on Friday.

    Merilainen was pulled Thursday after giving up three goals on 12 shots in a 7-2 loss to the Panthers. He was 0-1-1, giving up six goals on 49 shots in his two NHL games. The 20-year-old has a bright future, but he needs more experience, which he will get at the AHL level.

  • Senators' Leevi Merilainen: Gets hook in Florida

    Merilainen stopped nine of 12 shots before being replaced by Mads Sogaard early in the second period of Thursday's 7-2 loss to the Panthers.

    It was a rough second appearance in the NHL for Merilainen, although Sogaard didn't fare any better in his place. With the Senators now officially eliminated from the playoffs, the two young netminders -- Sogaard is 22, while Merilainen is only 20 -- could see the bulk of the work between the pipes for the remainder of the schedule instead of 35-year-old Cam Talbot.

  • Senators' Leevi Merilainen: Facing Panthers

    Merilainen will be between the visiting pipes in Florida on Thursday, Wayne Scanlan of the Ottawa Citizen reports.

    Merilainen made his NHL debut Tuesday in a 3-2 overtime loss to Carolina, stopping 34 shots. The Senators are on the verge of elimination in the Eastern Conference and are looking towards the future by playing Merilainen against the Panthers. Florida is fifth in NHL scoring, averaging 3.49 goals per game.

  • Senators' Leevi Merilainen: Allows three in overtime loss

    Merilainen stopped 34 of 37 shots in the Senators' 3-2 overtime loss to the Hurricanes on Tuesday.

    In his NHL debut, Merilainen started off shaky, allowing two goals in the first period. He would settle in the rest of the game before allowing the eventual game-winner in overtime. The Finnish netminder should remain the backup to Cam Talbot until Mads Sogaard is ready to return.
