Brown and Formenton continue their auditions for spots with big-league Senators

Logan Brown and Alex Formenton were where they wanted to be Wednesday night. Well, sort of. They took centre stage at Canadian Tire Centre, home of the Ottawa Senators. For the COVID-19 time being, though, it’s also home to the Belleville Senators, the club’s American Hockey League affiliate, where Brown and Formenton are trying to make...

GARRIOCH: Tim Stuetzle's showing for the Ottawa Senators has made him a top candidate for Calder Trophy

Tim Stuetzle is at the top of his class this season. Named the NHL’s rookie of the month for February on Tuesday, the Ottawa Senators winger is one of only two members the 2020 draft class suiting up in this shortened 56-game season. The other, of course, is No. 1 overall pick Alexis Lafrenière of the New York Rangers. The Senators are preparing to face the Calgary Flames on Thursday at the Saddledome...

May Be Time for Sens, Brown to Part Ways

May Be Time for Sens, Brown to Part Ways

Photo by Andre Ringuette/NHLI via Time is running out, if it hasn’t already. Any time that a team’s first-round draft pick doesn’t materialize into an impact player, it’s a bitter pill to swallow. The highest of expectations fade into the most embittering disappointments, and the entire drafting process used on the player is called into question. The troubled relationship between the Ottawa Senators and Logan Brown is no longer the capital’s little secret. After another training camp where Brown — who turns 23 in two days — failed to make the big club...

Senators Afterthoughts: The Eriks on defence pay the price for stick penalties

CANADIENS 3, SENATORS 1 WHY THEY LOST: If not for a post here or a post there, there might have been a different result and Joey Daccord might have skated out of the Bell Centre with a winning game puck to go along with his positive showing. Even the magic wand that Drake Batherson has been carrying in his hands lately couldn’t find the range...

Sens Fall in Montreal, 3-1

Sens Fall in Montreal, 3-1

Photo by Minas Panagiotakis/ Good goaltending in a Senators’ loss? Is that legal? Winning six of their last nine, the Ottawa Senators had a great deal of momentum going into tonight’s tilt against the struggling Montreal Canadiens. Against the best-play-drivers in the league, the Senators worked hard to keep the game and shot clock close, but they came up short, losing 3-1. The Habs outshoot their opponents nearly every game, and with the glorious tailspin they’ve been in recently, you knew they were going to turn the desperation level up to eleven. They love to...

Daccord fares well in season debut but Senators fall to Habs

Nobody can accuse Joey Daccord of having stage fright Tuesday night. No, there weren’t any fans in the Bell Centre, but making his first NHL start of the season the Ottawa Senators’ rookie goaltender held his own with 30 stops as the club dropped a 3-1 decision to the Montreal Canadiens. Though winger Drake Batherson picked up an assist on the club’s only goal, his six-game goal-scoring streak — which...

SNAPSHOTS: Tim Stuetzle takes NHL rookie honours for February ... Big homestand for Belleville and Logan Brown

Tim Stuetzle has turned heads in the National Hockey League. The Ottawa Senators’ No. 3 overall pick in the draft in October has made his presence felt and Tuesday was named the NHL’s rookie of the month for February. The 19-year-old Stuetzle has made his impact felt in his first NHL season and helped the Senators get back on track with three goals and seven assists in 14 games in February. ...

GARRIOCH: The only person surprised with Drake Batherson's success is Drake Batherson

The Drake has no explanation for his recent scoring success. But as winger Drake Batherson and the Ottawa Senators prepared to face the Montreal Canadiens on Tuesday night, starting a six-game road trip, he hoped it would never end. With his two-goal effort in a 5-1 victory against the Calgary Flames at home on Monday, Batherson tied a franchise record by scoring in a sixth straight game, joining a strong...

Game 25 Preview and Open Thread: Ottawa Senators @ Montreal Canadiens

Game 25 Preview and Open Thread: Ottawa Senators @ Montreal Canadiens

Marc DesRosiers-USA TODAY Sports The Ottawa Senators look to continue their reign of terror over the Montreal Canadiens tonight when they visit the Habs. As you may have heard, the Sens’ last meeting with the Canadiens produced such a resounding defeat that Montreal immediately fired Claude Julien and Kirk Muller. While I strongly doubt Dominique Ducharme, Julien’s replacement, is in similar jeopardy, another defeat to the bottom-dwelling Sens could add fuel to what is already something of a volatile situation. As for the Sens, well the vibes remain immaculate...

Prospect Update - March 2nd

Photo by Matt Zambonin/Freestyle Photography/ All eyes on Ottawa with the B-Sens off last week With no AHL action to report and a lighter NCAA schedule, Senators prospect highlights skewed more quality than quantity this week with the usual suspects in Ottawa doing most of the damage (one of our favourite European imports also found his way back into the mix!) Before we get to the prospect team of the week, I just have to ask: when was the last time you were more stoked about the Ottawa Senators than their prospects? We’ve waited a minute for this.

SENATORS: Injured Derek Stepan out for the season, won't be returning to team

Derek Stepan is done for the season. The Ottawa Senators confirmed Tuesday he will need shoulder surgery to repair an injury he suffered last week. The 30-year-old Stepan is a unrestricted free agent and won’t return next season. “Following a review and assessment by the team’s medical staff, it has been determined that Derek requires a...

NKB’s Notebook: Breakouts, the Penalty Kill, and ZUUUUUUB

Jean-Yves Ahern-USA TODAY Sports Some stray tactical thoughts from the week that was Are the Ottawa Senators too good? At this point you have to ask the question. But seriously, there have been a lot more positives to write about these last couple of weeks. Besides the wins, the team has been playing much better hockey in virtually every facet. Here are a few tactical developments that have jumped out at me recently: I wouldn’t say that this is something that I’ve only noticed in the last week, but there is an obvious difference in how the Sens’ defense group has...

Senators Afterthoughts: Murray's presence makes a difference, but what's wrong with the Flames?

SENATORS 5, FLAMES 1 WHY THEY WON Several thoughts spring to mind in contemplating what finished up as another lopsided victory by the Senators. First off, when goaltender Matt Murray is ready to go and allows his team to shake off early nerves with strong first period performances, he inspires confidence and takes pressure off the players in...

Senators close out series with convincing 5-1 victory over Flames

Just as March always does, the Ottawa Senators came in like a lion. Led by a standout two-goal effort from winger Drake Batherson, who extended his goal-scoring streak to six straight games, the Senators sent the Calgary Flames packing with a convincing 5-1 victory to close out this series Monday night at the Canadian Tire. While no Ottawa player is nearly as hot as Batherson, the Senators couldn’t have...

Photo by Andre Ringuette/NHLI via Drake Batherson extended his goal scoring streak to six straight games, carrying the Ottawa Senators to a mini-series victory over the Calgary Flames. After ending their winning streak with a 6-3 loss to Calgary on Saturday afternoon, the Senators came into this game knowing they had to bring their best effort - after all, when you’re a rebuilding team, you can’t afford to take the night off. The game started off relatively slowly. Each team exchanged an ultimately unsuccessful powerplay opportunity and the two headed into their...
