Anton Forsberg allowed three goals on 28 shots against as the Senators lost 4-2 to the Kraken.

Fantasy Impact: Forsberg has lost his last two starts and dropped to 19-17-4 with a 2.78 goals against average and .917 save percentage this year. Despite Ottawa being in the bottom of the league he's ranked in the top 10 in save percentage and can be a solid streaming option in the right matchup.

The center was in on points for every score the Senators found, all of which came during the second period of play. The 20-year-old added a helper to Brady Tkachuk to get the team on the board then added a secondary assist to Josh Norris who scored his 33rd goal of the season to tie the game at two. Stutzle capped the night off with a power-play goal on an assist by Tkachuk. Ottawa went on to win 3-2.

Fantasy Impact: Stutzle now has 18 goals and 32 assists on the season. He added one hit and five shots-on-goal in 18:35 of ice time in the victory.

Drake Batherson scored a goal and added an assist in a 6-3 win over the Montreal Canadiens.

Fantasy Impact: Drake Batherson now has 38 points (14 goals, 24 assists) in just 36 games played this season. Batherson has missed 33 games this year due to injury but when he has been in the lineup he has delivered for fantasy managers. If the 23-year-old is healthy and playing managers can lean on him for point production.

Wed, Mar 2nd 12:13am EST
By Jesse Garcia

Matt Murray stopped 17 shots in 22 games in a 5-2 loss to the Lightning. Four goals were scored even strength and one scored on the power play.

Fantasy Impact: Murray has lost five games in a row and is 5-11-2 on the season. With a 2.78 GAA and .915 save percentage, fantasy owners can find better options at goalie.

Thomas Chabot registered his 23rd assist of the year in a 5-2 loss in Tampa Bay. He finished with an even rating, two SOG, and one block.

Fantasy Impact: Chabot may be heating up, as he has four points in his last two games. He has 28 points in 47 games for the Senators and is a solid bench option.

Alex Formenton collected his third assist of the season in a 8-2 win over the Panthers. He also had four SOG, two hits, and one block in 15:14 of ice-time.

Fantasy Impact: Formenton’s assist puts him at eight points in 23 games this season. He should remain on the waiver wire.

Tyler Ennis assisted on two goals in Thursday night's victory over the Carolina Hurricanes. Ennis added two shots on goal, two hits, and a blocked shot as well.

Fantasy Impact: Ennis has had a quiet season so far, with only 11 points in 19 games. Ennis will look to keep up his contributions Saturday night against the Colorado Avalanche.

Adam Gaudette scored a goal in his first career game for the Ottawa Sentors in their 6-2 loss to the Canucks on Wednesday. He was a minus two with one goal on one SOG in 8:20 of ice-time.

Fantasy Impact: The recently acquired Gaudette from the Blackhawk wasted no time to find twine with his new team. The problem is the back of the net is a stranger to him. He is filling in for some player currently on the IL and should soon be back to the AHL which he is more suited for.

Fantasy Impact: Pinto is likely back for the end for the season. Redraft formats should no longer hold on to him at this point.

Zach Sanford had a hat trick in the Senators' 7-5 loss to the Avalanche on Monday. He was a plus one with three goals, three SOG and two blocks in 15:15 of ice-time.

Fantasy Impact: Sanford not only had the hat trick tonight but he scored on all three shots he took. This will be a night for him to remember forever. He should be left on the wavier wire. I believe Sanford's shooting percentage is due for a little regression.

Derek Stepan had an assist during a 4-2 loss to Edmonton. He had two shots, two hits, and two blocks while playing 16:10 minutes.

Fantasy Impact: The veteran who was traded to Ottawa in December from Arizona has one goal with two assists and a minus-six rating in nine games played.

Craig Anderson has been activated off the injured reserve and will start against the Edmonton Oilers on Wednesday. It will be Anderson's first appearance since November 25th. (Source: Hailey Salvian on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Anderson had been nursing a lower-body injury, but he'll return in the minimum amount of time in order to take the start on the second night of a back-to-back. Backup Anders Nilsson has struggled of late, so Anderson has the opportunity to seize some playing time. He will carry an underwhelming 4-8-0 record into the game, along with a 2.96 GAA and .904 SV%. On the bright side, Anderson had conceded two goals or less in three out of four starts prior to his injury.

Colin White had an assist on Tyler Ennis's third period goal in Ottawa's 5-2 loss to Vancouver on Tuesday. He chipped in two shots and one hit in 17:33 of ice-time.

Fantasy Impact: It's been a very quiet season for the 22-year-old forward. This was just White's sixth point of the season (two goals, four assists) through 21 games played. This represents is a major step back from his 41 points in 71 games in his first full NHL look last season. White has been averaging consistent ice-time (16:29) and is getting a solid look on the power-play (2:26 per-game) and yet, it still has translated to fantasy production. Until he proves otherwise, White shouldn't be on your radar.

Anders Nilsson stopped just 11 of 15 shots before being pulled in Ottawa's 5-2 loss to the Vancouver Canucks on Tuesday. This was the Swedish netminder's third straight loss and it dips his record for the season to 7-7-1.

Fantasy Impact: The month of November began magnificently for Nilsson, as he went through a scorching stretch that saw him win six of seven starts. Unfortunately, he lost his final two starts of the month and has now dragged his recent poor play into his first start of December. After seizing the majority of starts in the Ottawa net, Nilsson has conceded 11 goals in his past two games and now Craig Anderson is due to come off the injured reserve and start on Wednesday. Nilsson is probably going to have a 50/50 share of starts at best for the rest of the way unless he finds his solid form once again.

Jean-Gabriel Pageau scored his 15th goal of the season in Ottawa's 5-2 loss to Vancouver on Tuesday night. He added four shots, three hits and one block in the game.

Fantasy Impact: After a break-out November that saw him put up the third-most goals in the league (11) behind just Connor McDavid and David Pastrnak, Pageau continued to light the lamp in his first game in December. Pageau has unexpectedly risen to fantasy prominence with 21 points (15 goals, six assists) in 28 games so far this season. His contributions of 67 shots, 44 hits and 23 blocks make him a well-rounded piece to for fantasy owners to fill out their lineups.
