Analysis: The blueliner showed some promise in his second full season as a pro, but still found himself watching games in the press box from time to time. Patrick Wiercioch is still just 23-years-old, and figures to be a big part of the Ottawa blue line moving forward.

Senators' Wiercioch Likely To Play Sunday

News: Patrick Wiercioch is on track to play in Sunday's game against the Canucks, Wayne Scanlan of the Ottawa Citizen reports.
Analysis: Patrick Wiercioch did not suit up for the Senators' last game Thursday, but he skated as part of the third defensive pairing during Friday's practice, so he will likely take the ice Sunday.

Sens' Wiercioch Producing Respectably

News: Patrick Wiercioch has four goals and twelve assists in 39 games this season.

Sens' Wiercioch Scratched Saturday

News: Patrick Wiercioch was a healthy scratch for Saturday's 2-1 shootout win over the Predators.
Analysis: The young defenseman was playing regularly earlier in the season, but appears to have been replaced on the Sens blue line by Cody Ceci. Patrick Wiercioch hasn't been in the lineup since December, despite showing some promise offensively. He racked up three goals and 11 assists in 29 games, and is still expected to be a big part of the future in Ottawa, even though he may not get much ice time the rest of this season.

Sens' Wiercioch Playing Well

News: Patrick Wiercioch has two goals and nine assists in 23 games this season.
Analysis: The young defenseman has carved out a roster spot with the Sens for the foreseeable future, and he's turning out to be a pretty productive player. He's still skating with Eric Gryba on the third pairing, but his future looks bright.

Sens' Wiercioch Sets Up Two

News: Patrick Wiercioch set up two Ottawa goals in Saturday's win over the Red Wings.
Analysis: His eight points in 16 games are modest, but effective, although he tends to contribute sporadically. He has offensive upside, but it will likely take some time to truly fulfill that upside. For now, he'll provide depth on your blue line.

Sens' Wiercioch Producing Respectably

News: Patrick Wiercioch has delivered six points and posted a plus-1 rating through six games this season.
Analysis: Though the Senators' collective defensive effort has left a lot to be desired on the blue line, Patrick Wiercioch's production across the traditional fantasy categories hasn't wavered too much from last season. His 2013-14 scoring average (.43 points per game) is just about even with last season (.45), and he's received about a minute and a half more of ice time on average in his second campaign with the Senators.

News: Patrick Wiercioch (lower body) will not play in Tuesday's Game 4 against the Canadiens.

News: Patrick Wiercioch picked up three assists and a plus-3 rating in Tuesday's win over the Isles.
Analysis: He's been quite productive in the month of March, chipping in an impressive eight points (four goals, four assists) in nine games along with 25 PIMs. That's great production from the blue line, especially for a 22-year-old kid.

Sens Wiercioch On Scoreboard

News: Patrick Wiercioch notched his second goal in three games on Friday in Ottawa's 3-2 win over the Rangers.
Analysis: Patrick Wiercioch fired home a power-play marker for his second goal in three contests, giving him a respectable eight points in 21 games with six of that total coming on the power play. He's not going to put up a point-per-game, but Wiercioch has seen an increase in power-play time since the injury to Erik Karlsson (achilles) nearly one month ago. Give him a look in deep leagues if you need help on the blue line.

Sens' Prospect Wiercioch (Throat) Expected To Make Full Recovery

News: Patrick Wiercioch (throat), who remains in hospital after being struck in the throat by a shot on Friday, is expected to make a full recovery, reports the Vancouver Sun.
Analysis: "He's stable," Ottawa general manager Bryan Murray said Monday. "He's comfortable now. He's in Syracuse being looked after by one of the best doctors in the business, and we hope in the next few days we'll have a big upgrade on his part." Thnakfully, the young defender is expected to make a full recovery but it will be a while before he's back on the ice.

Sens' Prospect Wiercioch Hopitalized After Puck To Throat

News: Patrick Wiercioch is in stable condition in the hospital after taking a clearing shot to the throat in Friday night's AHL game against Norfolk, reports TSN.ca.
Analysis: It was a scary moment for the talented young defender who went down and then had to be helped off the ice. He is being monitored to ensure that any swelling does not interfere with his windpipe (and thus his ability to breathe). His teammates have been told that he should be okay -- what a relief.

Wiercioch Demoted by Sens

News: The Senators have re-assigned Wiercioch to AHL Binghamton, the team's official site reports.
Analysis: Wiercioch, who has two assists and four penalty minutes in eight NHL games this season, could be back before the Sens' season finishes, but look for him to suit up Wednesday against AHL Norfolk first.

Senators Recall Wiercioch

News: The Senators recalled Wiercioch from AHL Binghamton on Tuesday, the team's official site reports.
Analysis: Wiercioch played seven games with Ottawa earlier this season, recording two assists and four penalty minutes. He'll have a chance to get some more experience over the final few games before making a run at a full-time spot with Ottawa next season.

Wiercioch Demoted By Sens

News: The Senators have reassigned Wiercioch to AHL Binghamton, the team's official site reports.
Analysis: Wiercioch, who has recorded two assists in seven NHL games this season, could be back before the end of the season, but if not, he'll aim to earn a full-time spot with the big club next fall.

Sens' Wiercioch To Make NHL Debut Tuesday

News: Ottawa has recalled Wiercioch from its AHL affiliate in Binghamton reports the Ottawa Citizen's Allen Panzeri.
Analysis: He'll make his NHL debut Tuesday night against Carolina. After a very slow start to his pro career with Binghamton, Wiercioch has made good progress of late, having notched one goal and nine assists over his last 15 games. He's a smooth-skating, offensive-minded defenseman with nice size (6-4), but he'll need to add some more muscle to his frame (he's currently listed at 185 pounds) before he can think about earning a full-time spot in the NHL. If he works hard over the summer, Wiercioch has an outside shot at making the big club in the fall.
