Laine status in doubt for Tuesday's game against the Senators

Before the season, Patrik Laine’s name was just about everywhere, with the thought being he might be anywhere but in Winnipeg. After opening the season by scoring two goals and an assist, he served notice that he might not be done in Winnipeg just yet. For all that, the Senators might dodge the Jets sniper altogether. Laine, who may or may...

WARRENSPIECE: Brown and Coburn stretch the Senators defence, Duclair declares support, Norris praises Stuetzle

At first glance, it’s the wingspan of the Ottawa Senators new defence tandem of Josh Brown and Braydon Coburn that, well, stands out. Brown is 6-5 and 217 pounds. Coburn is 6-5 and 224 pounds. Considering their size and their role as shutdown defenders, it shouldn’t be surprising that they’ve made their mark physically in the early going. ...

SNAPSHOTS: Nick Paul has made his presence felt early in the season for the Ottawa Senators

Nick Paul has turned heads as the Ottawa Senators season shifts into high gear. The 25-year-old forward established himself as a full-time NHLer last season and, as a result of that effort, general manager Pierre Dorion signed Paul to a two-year deal worth $1.35 million per-season. It’s the first time in Paul’s career he’s had a one-way contract and it’s paying dividends because he’s become a...

GARRIOCH: Tim Stuetzle's first NHL goal with the Ottawa Senators is just the start for young star

Tim Stuetzle can check another box off his list. Friday night, before his first NHL game, he celebrated his 19th birthday by doing a solo rookie lap to warmup at the Canadian Tire Centre before a 5-3 victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs, a moment he won’t soon forget. Saturday night, Stuetzle followed up by scoring his first career goal in the Senators 3-2 loss to the Leafs at home. Now, the club’s top...

WARREN: Senators afterthoughts

Game Two: Maple Leafs 3, Senators 2 WHY THEY WON/LOST: The Maple Leafs had the puck for most of the night, as one of the Senators’ chief issues of a year ago — far too much extended play inside their blueline — re-appeared. When they did have the puck, they...

Stuetzle, the club’s No. 3 overall pick in the NHL...

Colin White didn’t have to sit long. Only 24 hours after the Ottawa Senators’ centre was a healthy scratch for the season opener Friday against the Toronto Maple Leafs, the 23-year-old centre returned for Round 2 of the Battle of Ontario at the Canadian Tire Centre Saturday night. While he’d gotten off to a strong start at training camp, coach D.J. Smith wasn’t completely pleased with the way he...

WARREN: Chabot begins challenge of leading new-look Senators defence

That “A” sewn on Thomas Chabot’s chest for opening night Friday officially stood for alternate captain. It could have also stood for attitude, as in a determination to defend the house against the Toronto Maple Leafs. “They still have a lot of skill up front, they’re a fast team, they like to control the puck and...

Senators in top form in convincing win over Maple Leafs

We'll have to wait to find out if White is the odd-man out in the middle

Colin White was wearing a grey jersey and skating on the fifth line Thursday at practice. That leaves his status for Friday’s season opener against the Toronto Maple Leafs at the Canadian Tire Centre clouded, but since he was skating with Alex Galchenyuk and Micheal Haley there’s a strong possibility the 23-year-old White could be a healthy scratch. Coach D.J. Smith, who praised White’s work early in...
