Admittedly, it’s pretty easy to be down on Curtis Lazar. Since arriving on the NHL scene as a 19-year old, the young forward has struggled to assert himself at the NHL level. The blend of offensive skill, intangibles and grit that turned Lazar into the 17th overall draft selection in 2013 has not translated into strong performance since he turned pro. In fact, in his first three...

What’s an Ottawa Senators season without a little controversy or mystery? When Bobby Ryan was announced as a scratch prior to Ottawa’s 1-0 loss to the Capitals Saturday night, it spurred speculation as to why the Senators’ highest paid player was sitting on the sidelines. Not only was Ryan present at practice that morning, he also participated in the team’s pre-game skate...
A few days late on this, but Senators general manager Pierre Dorion appeared on TSN 1200’s ‘In the Box’ before Wednesday’s World Junior semi-final games that showcased four of Ottawa’s best prospects on the national stage. For fans who love to indulge in prospect porn, this time of year is like Christmas. To listen to the full interview, you can scroll to the bottom of...
Curtis Lazar’s development hasn’t gone the way many anticipated since he was drafted 17th overall in 2013. Tabbed as a defensively responsible player who oozed intangibles and had offensive upside, Lazar was viewed as the kind of productive, character player that the Senators lacked. That Lazar would go on to capture the 2013-14 Memorial Cup and bring home gold in the 2015...
Ottawa Senators’ defenseman Mark Borowiecki was taking a normal shift Saturday against the New Jersey Devils when something highly unusual happened: one of his skate blades failed on him and came off. What followed was pretty ugly for Borowiecki: It looks like Borowiecki’s injured, but he’s not. He’s struggling massively to keep up on the shift in the defensive zone...
Erik Karlsson was not a happy camper following the Senators' 4-3 shootout loss to the San Jose Sharks. Things got testy in the second period when a scrum between Sharks defenseman Marc-Edouard Vlasic and Karlsson got vicious, as the former appeared to spear the Sens defenseman. The dirty play was caught on cameras. Despite only catching a glimpse of what happened, Vlasic used his...
The situation in the Canadian capital is not exactly roses and rainbows. The Ottawa Senators fans have been hoping for an outdoor game to celebrate the 150th year anniversary of Canadian independence and the 100th anniversary of the inaugural NHL game in Ottawa. The intended location was obviously TD Place, which stands along the beautiful Parliament Hill. After a tireless effort...
Following the Senators’ trade that sent Mika Zibanejad to New York for Derick Brassard, it was easy to circle November 27th on the calendar and look forward to the first opportunity for each of these players to face their former teams, but once Zibby was felled by a broken fibula, it felt like some of the air was let out of the balloon. Thankfully, the recently claimed Matt Puempel...

Dzingel was initially stitched up and returned to the game, but he needed additional treatment following the game. Below was the frightening incident: After the game, it was revealed that Dzingel...
After exhausting the trade market to find a suitor for Andrew Hammond, the Senators placed Andrew Hammond on waivers yesterday signalling perhaps one of the organization’s most precipitous falls from grace since Dany Heatley clashed with Cory Clouston. About 18-months since Hammond’s Cinderella’esque emergence on the NHL scene concluded, but the Senators saw enough of Hammond...
Craig Anderson recently left the Senators due to personal reasons but returned to the team with a very big announcement. His wife, Nicholle, was diagnosed with cancer, which is an absolutely heart-wrenching development. When you are in the public sphere like Anderson, everything becomes magnified times 100. Pierre Dorion, the Ottawa GM, made a statement on behalf of the Anderson...
