Senators' Anton Forsberg: Making back-to-back starts
Forsberg will guard the road goal against the Maple Leafs on Friday before defending the home goal against Montreal on Saturday, Bruce Garrioch of The Ottawa Sun reports.
With Cam Talbot sidelined with a lower-body injury, the Senators will ride Forsberg hard heading into the All-Star break. The 30-year-old Forsberg will first try to pick up a road win in a tough matchup with a Toronto team that's 19-3-4 at home this year. The Maple Leafs will, however, be without leading goal-scorer Auston Matthews, who is set to miss a minimum of three weeks with a sprained knee.... See More ... See Less
Senators' Kevin Mandolese: Called up from minors
Mandolese was recalled from AHL Belleville on Thursday.
Mandolese has yet to appear in an NHL game but could be in line to make his debut with the Senators heading into a back-to-back versus the Leafs and Canadiens on Friday and Saturday, respectively, though with the upcoming break perhaps the team would use Anton Forsberg in both games. Even if Mandolese does make his debut, his time in the NHL is no doubt linked to the health of Cam Talbot (lower body).... See More ... See Less
Senators' Ridly Greig: Eight shots in NHL debut
Greig had a power-play assist and eight shots on goal in Wednesday's 2-1 win over the Islanders.
Greig had chances galore in his NHL debut, and he got on the scoresheet with an assist on Claude Giroux's second-period goal, which turned out to be the game-winner. The 2020 first-round pick could be a player to watch in dynasty leagues, and Greig could even carve out some redraft value if he continues to be deployed on the second line with power-play time by the Senators....

Senators' Jake Sanderson: Bags two apples in win
Sanderson dished out two assists -- one on the power play -- in Wednesday's 2-1 win over the Islanders.
Sanderson played a role in both of Ottawa's goals. The rookie blueliner has sandwiched a five-game point drought between two-assist efforts, but you have to go back to Nov. 16 to find Sanderson's previous multi-point performance before this pair in January.... See More ... See Less
Senators' Claude Giroux: Pots PPG as part of two-point night
Giroux scored a power-play goal and added an even-strength assist in Wednesday's 2-1 win over the Islanders.
Giroux set up Shane Pinto in the first period, then doubled Ottawa's lead himself early in the second. The latter goal turned into the game-winner when the Islanders got one back later in the middle frame. It was Giroux's 16th goal of the season and also his 16th power-play point.... See More ...

Senators' Anton Forsberg: Holds lead in relief
Forsberg stopped 21 of 22 shots after replacing Cam Talbot (lower body) in Wednesday's 2-1 win over the Islanders.
Talbot exited just before the game's halfway point, leaving Forsberg to play the final 31:55 even though Talbot was credited with the win. With Talbot expected to be sidelined through at least the All-Star break, Forsberg will likely get most or all of the starts through early February. Forsberg came in with a 2-0 lead and limited the struggling Islanders offense to a single goal, but he had struggled mightily against far tougher competition before this game, allowing a combined 12 goals to the Avalanche and Jets over his previous two outings....

Senators' Cam Talbot: Doubtful to return before break
Talbot (lower body) isn't expected to return before the All-Star break, Claire Hanna of TSN reports.
Talbot left Wednesday's game against the Islanders in the second period because of the injury. The Senators are expected to know more about Talbot's status Thursday. Ottawa is set to play Friday in Toronto, Saturday against Montreal and Jan. 31 in Montreal before the break begins. Talbot entered Wednesday's action with an 11-13-1 record, 2.95 GAA and .903 save percentage in 27 contests in 2022-23.... See More ... See Less
Senators' Cam Talbot: Leaves games in second period
Talbot (lower body) left Wednesday's game versus the Islanders in the second period, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.
Talbot appeared to limp off the ice a little before the midway mark of the second period. Anton Forsberg entered the game in relief of Talbot. More information on the 35-year-old Talbot's injury should surface before Friday's game versus the Maple Leafs.... See More ... See Less
Senators' Cam Talbot: Expected to start Wednesday
Talbot is expected to start at home against the Islanders on Wednesday, according to TSN 1200 Ottawa.
Talbot has lost five of his last six games, posting a 3.89 GAA and an .865 save percentage over that span. He's 11-13-1 with a 2.95 GAA and a .903 save percentage in 27 contests this season. The Islanders have the 24th-ranked offense with 2.92 goals per game.... See More ... See Less
Senators' Mark Kastelic: Sidelined with undisclosed injury
Kastelic will miss Wednesday's clash with the Islanders due to an undisclosed injury, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.
With Kastelic out, Dylan Gambrell will step into a fourth-line role against New York. For his part, the 23-year-old Kastelic has just one point in his last 15 appearances in which he averaged 9:31 of ice time. Given his limited offensive upside, few fantasy players will likely be impacted by Kastelic's absence, even if it lingers beyond a game or two.... See More ... See Less
Senators' Rourke Chartier: Sent to AHL
Chartier (upper body) was loaned to AHL Belleville on Monday, per the AHL transaction page.
Chartier, who had been out with an injury since Dec. 22, appears to be ready to resume playing again. He has eight shots on goal, three blocks and 10 hits in six games with Ottawa.... See More ... See Less
Senators' Tyler Motte: Close to being ready
Motte (finger) is close to being ready to return to the lineup, TSN 1200 Ottawa reports.
Motte has been out of action since Dec. 22 with a broken finger. It is unclear at this time if he will be available to return Wednesday versus the Islanders. Motte has posted three goals, six assists, 61 shots on net, 32 blocks and 67 hits in 32 appearances this season.... See More ... See Less
Senators' Nikita Zaitsev: Ready to return
Zaitsev (lower body) is expected to return to the lineup Wednesday against the Islanders, TSN 1200 Ottawa reports.
Zaitsev skated alongside Erik Brannstrom during Monday's practice. Coach D.J. Smith said announced that the Senators defender has been cleared to return following the session. Zaitsev, who last played Dec. 27, has compiled three assists, 15 shots on goal, 33 blocks and 39 hits in 19 games this season.... See More ... See Less
Senators' Josh Norris: Done for season
Norris will miss the rest of the 2022-23 season after undergoing shoulder surgery in the near future. He was placed on injured reserve Monday.
Norris played in just three games after sitting out 38 contests due to a shoulder injury. His season will come to an end after re-injuring it. Norris was limited to only eight appearances this campaign. He posted two goals, one assist, 15 shots on goal, six blocks and seven hits. Shane Pinto should see an increased role for the remainder of the year. The Senators also brought up Ridly Greig from AHL Belleville on Monday.... See More ... See Less
Senators' Ridly Greig: Up with Ottawa
Greig was recalled from AHL Belleville on Monday.
Greig has produced 12 goals and 11 assists in 28 AHL contests this campaign. He could get a chance to make his NHL debut this week. Ottawa is scheduled to host the Islanders on Wednesday.... See More ... See Less
Senators' Jacob Bernard-Docker: Sent down
Bernard-Docker was assigned to AHL Belleville on Sunday.
Bernard-Docker had been skating on the top pairing with Thomas Chabot. He has picked up one assist, 15 shots on goal, 23 blocks and 16 hits in 13 NHL games this season. The 22-year-old blueliner could be back with the big club prior to Wednesday's game against the Islanders if Artem Zub (lower body) and Nikita Zaitsev (lower body) remain on injured reserve....
