WARREN'S PIECE: Full lineup for pivotal Monday scrimmage, Stepan making up for lost time, Brannstrom regains confidence

Senators coach D.J. Smith isn’t about to receive any sympathy cards from the Dallas Stars, Columbus Blue Jackets and Pittsburgh Penguins, who have all endured significant COVID-19 hiccups during training camp. Just the same, with the additions of Tim Stuetzle, Derek Stepan and Erik Brannstrom to the practice ice Sunday, Smith was ecstatic at finally having a chance to see a full roster of players in action. ...

Incoming veteran Stepan takes rookie Stuetzle under his wing

The first assist in Tim Stuetzle’s goal of establishing himself in the National Hockey League goes to Derek Stepan. Before finally hitting the ice for the first time with the Ottawa Senators Sunday, Stuetzle and Stepan were in COVID-19 quarantine in a hotel for a week. Stepan, 30, and a 10-year NHL veteran, passed on advice wherever he could as they worked out and ate together. ...

The Ups and Downs of a Crowded Roster

Photo by Scott Audette/NHLI via The Senators have tons of options this year, but could that have a negative effect on player development? With the Ottawa Senators’ training camp well underway, fans may have questions pertaining to the new veterans that GM Pierre Dorion recently traded for. The acquisitions of Derek Stepan, Cedric Paquette, and Braydon Coburn have brought the number of one-way deals up to seventeen, on top of established players on two-way deals like Brady Tkachuk and Drake Batherson. This doesn’t seem ideal for a rebuilding team with prospects...

Arizona Coyotes: Derick Brassard isn’t Derek Stepan but that’s okay

The Arizona Coyotes can have their cake and eat it too. When the Arizona Coyotes traded away second-line center Derek Stepan to the Ottawa Senators for a second-round pick, it was best-case scenario a single step back to take two steps forward down the line. To be fair, the Coyotes pretty much had to make […] Arizona Coyotes: Derick Brassard isn’t Derek Stepan but that’s okay - Puck Prose - Puck Prose - NHL

Derek Stepan didn’t see this trade coming.

Stepan Brings Experience, Upside to Ottawa

Stepan Brings Experience, Upside to Ottawa

Photo by Richard A. Whittaker/Icon Sportswire via The veteran centre could have a sizeable impact on a young team. When the news broke, late Saturday night, that the Ottawa Senators had acquired 30 year-old Derek Stepan from the Arizona Coyotes, there was a vocal contingent of fans expressing displeasure with giving up a second-round pick. There’s merit to this, sure. Sending a second-rounder the other way for a guy with a rough-looking salary figure, who posted 28 points in 70 games last year is a tad puzzling on the surface. Especially for an Ottawa team that...
