Senators' Lassi Thomson: Lands on waivers
Thomson was waived by the Senators on Friday, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

Senators' Garrett Pilon: Placed on waivers
Ottawa waived Pilon on Friday, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.
Pilon joined the Senators on a two-way deal this offseason and will likely spend most of the year with AHL Belleville. He produced 29 points in 53 games with AHL Hershey last season and has just three games of NHL experience.... See More ... See Less
Senators' Dillon Heatherington: Lands on waivers
Heatherington was placed on waivers by Ottawa on Friday, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.
Heatherington will likely spend most of the 2023-24 season with AHL Belleville as has did last year when he recorded 15 points in 60 games. The 28-year-old blueliner hasn't scored a point at the NHL level since the 2018-19 season.... See More ... See Less
Senators' Josh Currie: Waived Friday
Currie was placed on waivers by Ottawa on Friday, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

Senators' Brady Tkachuk: Suffers cut above eye
Tkachuk suffered a cut above his eye Thursday that required some stitches, but he avoided a serious injury, Ian Mendes of The Athletic reports.
Tkachuk will miss the next two practices and has been ruled out of Friday's contest versus the Jets. However, he should be ready for the start of the season. The 24-year-old had career highs in goals with 35 and assists with 48 in 2022-23. Look for similar numbers this season from the young star.... See More ... See Less
Senators' Josh Norris: Not playing Friday
Norris (shoulder) will not play Friday versus the Jets, but he hopes to get into one or two preseason games, Ian Mendes of The Athletic reports.
Norris last played on Jan. 21 as he underwent shoulder surgery in the following week. Norris will likely be ready for Opening Night versus Carolina on Oct. 11. He had two goals and an assist in eight games last season, but he was outstanding the previous season with 35 goals and 55 points in just 66 contests. He is a great sleeper pick in drafts this season.... See More ... See Less
Senators' Josh Norris: Takes contact
Norris (shoulder) began taking contact during Wednesday's practice and could be available for Friday's preseason matchup with Winnipeg, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.
Norris is working his way back from the shoulder surgery he underwent in January, but it appears he's on track to be 100 percent healthy for Ottawa's regular-season opener versus Carolina on Oct. 11. The 24-year-old racked up 35 goals and 55 points through 66 games with the Senators in 2021-22 before playing just eight games last year, making him an enticing player that may be overlooked in fantasy drafts this year....

Senators' Zack Ostapchuk: Set for preseason action
Ostapchuk (undisclosed) is expected to play in Monday's exhibition matchup against Toronto.
Ostapchuk is projected to center the third line between Angus Crookshank and Cole Reinhardt. The 20-year-old Ostapchuk, who was not quite 100 percent for the start of training camp, had 31 goals and 67 points in 55 WHL games last season between Vancouver and Winnipeg.... See More ... See Less
Senators' Zack Ostapchuk: Receives injury designation
Ostapchuk (undisclosed) is listed as injured on the Senators' training camp roster released Wednesday.
The nature of Ostapchuk's injury is unknown. The 20-year-old forward was also injured last preseason, though it's unlikely he'll be a factor for the NHL club in 2023-24. He played with WHL Vancouver and WHL Winnipeg last season, accumulating 67 points over 55 regular-season games and another 15 points in 18 playoff outings. He's expected to make the jump to AHL Belleville for this season.... See More ... See Less
Senators' Travis Hamonic: Listed as healthy for camp
Hamonic (lower body) is not designated as injured on the Senators' training camp roster released Wednesday.
Hamonic missed the last seven games of 2022-23 with a lower-body injury, and he's no stranger to missing time with injuries due to his heavy shot-blocking style. The 33-year-old had 21 points in 75 outings last season and seems set for a bottom-four role again in 2023-24.... See More ... See Less
Senators' Parker Kelly: Participates in first practice
Kelly (kneecap) was on the ice for the Senators in Thursday's first training camp practice, Jon Abbott of TSN 1200 reports.
Kelly was sidelined by a broken kneecap March 12 and ended 2022-23 with four points and 172 hits in 55 contests. The 24-year-old forward is in contention for a bottom-six job, though he may have to compete with PTO forward Josh Bailey to earn a roster spot.... See More ... See Less
Senators' Thomas Chabot: Good for training camp
Chabot (wrist) is ready for the start of training camp, Senators GM Pierre Dorion told TSN 1200 Ottawa on Thursday.
Chabot suffered a broken wrist and torn ligament March 27, but he's evidently made a full recover. He had 11 goals and 41 points in 68 contests with Ottawa in 2022-23. He's expected to once again serve as the Senators' top defenseman.... See More ... See Less
Senators' Djibril Toure: Signs with Senators
Toure agreed to a three-year, entry-level contract with Ottawa on Thursday.
Toure had five goals, 16 points and 91 PIM in 57 OHL contests with Sudbury in 2022-23. The 20-year-old was an undrafted free agent prospect.... See More ... See Less
Senators' Josh Norris: Not ready for contact
Norris (shoulder) will initially wear a no-contact jersey during training camp practices, per Claire Hanna of TSN.
Norris, who underwent shoulder surgery in late January, recently tweaked something. Senators GM Pierre Dorion believes Norris would be healthy enough to play if the regular season were starting, but for now, Ottawa feels it would be better to stay cautious when it comes to his recovery. The 24-year-old had 35 goals and 55 points in 66 contests last year, but he was limited to just eight games in 2022-23.... See More ... See Less
Senators' Egor Sokolov: Inks two-way deal
Sokolov signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Senators on Tuesday.
Sokolov was an unsigned restricted free agent, but he was able to get a deal done before the start of camp. The 23-year-old winger is likely to begin the season with AHL Belleville. He produced two points, five shots on goal and five hits over five NHL games last season, and he added 21 goals and 38 assists over 70 contests with Belleville.... See More ... See Less
Senators' Jakob Chychrun: Ready to rock
Chychrun (hamstring) will be ready for the start of training camp, TSN 1200 Ottawa reports.
Chychrun missed the final 10 games of the 2022-23 season because of a hamstring injury. In 48 appearances between Arizona and Ottawa last season, he supplied nine goals, 24 assists, 144 shots on net and 83 blocked shots. Chychrun is slated to play on the top pairing with Thomas Chabot (wrist) during his first full campaign with the Senators in 2023-24.... See More ... See Less
Senators' Josh Bailey: Signs professional tryout
Bailey agreed to a professional tryout with the Senators on Thursday.
Bailey had eight goals and 25 points in 64 games with the Islanders last season. The Islanders dealt him to Chicago in June, and the Blackhawks subsequently bought out the final season of his six-year, $30 million contract. Although Bailey has fallen hard from his height of 71 points in 2017-18, the 33-year-old might still be a solid bottom-six forward this year.... See More ... See Less
Senators' Tyler Boucher: Suffers groin injury
Boucher sustained a groin injury during fitness testing Thursday, per Wayne Scanlan of the Ottawa Citizen.
Boucher's injury isn't believed to be serious, but he'll skip the rookie tournament for precautionary reasons. The 20-year-old had 10 goals and 17 points in 21 contests with OHL Ottawa last year.... See More ... See Less
Senators' Jake Sanderson: Commits long term in Ottawa
Sanderson signed an eight-year, $64.4 million contract extension with the Senators on Wednesday.
Sanderson is entering the final year of his entry-level contract, so his new deal won't kick in until 2024-25. It didn't take long for the Senators to sign the Montana native to a long-term deal after he posted four goals and 28 assists over 77 contests as a rookie last season. Sanderson is now officially a core part of the Senators' defense, alongside Thomas Chabot and Artem Zub. Jakob Chychrun could also be in that mix if he stays with the team beyond the expiration of his current contract at the end of next season. Expect Sanderson to see top-four minutes and some power-play time in 2023-24.... See More ... See Less
