Sens' Neil Brought Physical Presence

News: Chris Neil finished the 2013-14 season with eight goals, six assists, and 211 PIM in 76 games.
Analysis: He doesn't provide much offensively, but Chris Neil's 211 PIM put him in second place in the entire NHL. He'll be back next season to fill the same role as a veteran depth winger.

Sens' Neil Racking Up PIM

News: Chris Neil has eight goals, four assists and 136 PIM in 58 games this season.
Analysis: He's not very productive offensively, but his 136 PIM rank third in the NHL to date, so owners who need help in that category should consider going after Chris Neil.

Chris Neil

Sens' Neil: Two Goals And A Helper

News: Chris Neil factored in every Ottawa goal in a 6-3 loss to Toronto on Saturday. He scored twice and added an assist, and was also plus-3 in the loss.
Analysis: He's better known for his hits/PIM production, but games like Saturday prove he's more than just a pylon who can punch. Take advantage of this little burst, but keep the leash short and tight.

Chris Neil

Sens' Neil Will Play Saturday

News: Chris Neil (lower body) will be in the lineup Saturday against the Rangers.
Analysis: Chris Neil will replace Matt Kassian on the fourth line as he makes his first appearance since December 30. Neil has five goals and one assist this season to go along with 99 PIM. He'll return to being an everyday player now that he's healthy.

Chris Neil

Senators' Neil Will Not Play Thursday

News: Chris Neil (lower body) will not play in Thursday's game against the Canadiens.
Analysis: Chris Neil was initially going to be in the lineup but instead was a late scratch for the Senators. Look for him to return to the lineup in the relatively soon for the Senators.

Chris Neil, RW, OTT

Chris Neil

Sens' Neil Back In Lineup Thursday

News: Chris Neil (lower body) will return to the lineup Thursday vs. the Canadiens, Ian Mendes of the Ottawa Citizen reports.
Analysis: Chris Neil had been a game-time decision for Tuesday's game against the Wild before coach Paul MacLean ultimately decided not to use him. With an additional day to recover from the lower-body injury, Neil is now set to make his first appearance for the Senators since Dec. 30.

1/13/2014

Chris Neil, RW, OTT

Chris Neil

Sens' Neil A Game-Time Decision Tuesday

News: Chris Neil (lower body) will be a game-time decision Tuesday vs. the Wild.
Analysis: Chris Neil has been out of action for nearly two weeks now, and even if he doesn't play Tuesday, it appears he won't be out for much longer. Fantasy owners who value Neil for his penalty minutes and hit totals should prepare to do so immediately as soon as it's determined that he'll return.

1/10/2014

Chris Neil, RW, OTT

Chris Neil

Senators' Neil Still Out Saturday

News: Chris Neil (lower body) will not return in Saturday's game against the Predators.
Analysis: Chris Neil was expected to be iffy for the game but will remain out for Saturday. He has five goals and one assist in 42 games for the Senators this season.

1/8/2014

Chris Neil, RW, OTT

Chris Neil

Sens' Neil Ruled Out For Wednesday

News: Chris Neil (lower body) will not play Wednesday vs. the Avalanche.
Analysis: Though the forward is currently traveling with the Senators, it looks as though he's still a few days away from a return to game action. He should start amping up his activities in practices in the coming days.

1/6/2014

Chris Neil, RW, OTT

Chris Neil

Sens' Neil Will Travel With Team Wednesday

News: Chris Neil (hamstring) will travel with the team to Colorado on Wednesday, the Ottawa Sun reports.
Analysis: While it's good news that Chris Neil's recovery has progressed enough for him to travel, it sounds like he'll watch Wednesday's game from the press box. Head coach Paul MacLean picked out the matchup with the Wild on January 14 as a more likely return date for the gritty winger, who has six points and 99 PIM in 42 games this season.

Chris Neil

Sens' Neil Could Be More Than Day-To-Day

News: Senators coach Paul MacLean isn't optimistic that Chris Neil (lower body) will be able to play in the team's next couple of games, the Ottawa Citizen reports. "I still believe [Neil's injury] is going to be a little bit more than day-to-day, whether it's one to three or whatever weeks," MacLean said.
Analysis: Chris Neil sustained the lower-body injury in the second period of Monday's game against the Capitals, and it looks like the physical forward could be in line for a trip to IR. Mark Stone was recalled Tuesday on an emergency basis, a sign the Senators don't anticipate having Neil available for a while. Neil doesn't have much of an offensive game to speak of, but his 99 penalty minutes and 146 hits in 42 games make him a desirable asset on the checking line and in fantasy leagues that count toughness.

Chris Neil

Senators' Neal Exits With Injury Monday

News: Chris Neil left Monday's game with a lower-body injury and will not return, the Washington Post's Katie Carrera reports.
Analysis: The Sens will be down an enforcer for the rest of Monday's game, after Chris Neil and his 99 PIM were ruled out during the second period. With five goals and one assist through 42 appearances, Neil hasn't provided much fantasy value outside of the aforementioned penalty minutes.

12/4/2013

Chris Neil, RW, OTT

Chris Neil

Sens' Neil Fifth In League In PIM

News: Chris Neil skated 12:15 Tuesday against the Panthers.
Analysis: The gritty winger has four goals and one assist through 28 games, and currently ranks fifth in the NHL with 69 PIM. He'll continue to derive most of his fantasy value from his fists moving forward.

10/19/2013

Chris Neil, RW, OTT

Chris Neil

Sens' Neil Scores Goal In Loss

News: Chris Neil scored the Senators' lone goal in Saturday's loss to the Oilers.
Analysis: The goal, Chris Neil's first of the season, came in the second period in a rather flukish manner. Intending to knock down a puck in midair, Neil batted it in the direction of Oilers goalie Devin Dubnyk, who let it bounce past him after failing to corral it. Just like the goal he scored, Neil's offensive game isn't particularly pretty, with most of his fantasy utility lying in his ability to rack up penalty minutes.

Chris Neil

Sens' Neil Good To Go

News: Chris Neil (upper body), who left Sunday's Game 3 victory over the Penguins during the second overtime period, practiced Tuesday.
Analysis: The report adds that Chris Neil is cleared to play in Wednesday's Game 4, suggesting that the pesky forward could have returned to Game 3 with more time.

Chris Neil

Sens' Neil Hits The Ice

News: Chris Neil, who left Sunday's win over the Penguins in overtime with an upper-body injury, was on the ice Tuesday morning, reports Sportsnet's Ian Mendes.
Analysis: That bodes well for Chris Neil's chances of suiting up for Wednesday's Game 4. The gritty forward, who has three assists in eight playoff games to date, is the postseason leader in PIM and hits, with 33 and 50, respectively.

5/20/2013

Chris Neil, RW, OTT

Chris Neil

Sens' Neil Injured In Win

News: Chris Neil (upper body) left Sunday's victory over the Penguins during the second overtime period, and did not return.
Analysis: Chris Neil slid hard into the boards after a check from Penguins defenseman Brooks Orpik, and appeared to be favoring his left arm as he skated to the Senators dressing room. The gritty winger has chipped in three assists so far in the playoffs to go along with his league-leading 33 PIMs.

Chris Neil

Ottawa's Neil Plays Saturday

News: After the morning skate on Saturday, Chris Neil was unexpectedly listed as day-to-day due to him taking a skate blade to the foot earlier this week. However, Neil played in Saturday's contest against the Leafs and with 15:04 of ice time seemed to be OK even if he wasn't 100 percent.
Analysis: Chris Neil has been wildly inconsistent this year fantasy-wise, so this is good news for Ottawa, but probably irrelevant for most fantasy owners.

3/30/2013

Chris Neil

Senators' Neil (Ankle) Downgraded To Game-Time Decision

News: Updating a previous report, Chris Neil (ankle) will be a game-time decision Saturday, the Ottawa Citizen's James Gordon reports.
Analysis: The Senators' official twitter account declared Chris Neil good to go Friday night, but all reports Saturday morning list him as a game-time decision.

3/29/2013

Chris Neil, RW, OTT

Chris Neil

Sens' Neil Will Play Saturday

News: Chris Neil will play Saturday against Toronto.
Analysis: Chris Neil caught a skate-blade from New York's Anton Stralman in the ankle Thursday night. Neil left the game for a bit, but returned and notched two points. It's unlikely you're playing him, but if you are, you'll be glad to know he isn't going to be sidelined after the cut.

Chris Neil

Rare Multi-Point Game For Sens' Neil

News: Chris Neil picked up two assists -- one on an empty-netter -- in Thursday's 3-0 win over the Rangers.
Analysis: It was his first multi-point game of the season. After a surprising 28-point effort last year, Chris Neil's got just 10 points in 34 games even with the big night Thursday.

Sens' Neil Gets Three-Year Extension

News: Chris Neil agreed to a three-year, $5.75 million contract extension with the Senators on Tuesday, sportsnet.ca reports.
Analysis: Chris Neil had one year left on his current deal worth $2 million. He totaled 28 points and 178 penalty minutes in 72 games last season for the Senators.

Neil Dodges Suspension, Scores In Sens Loss

News: Chris Neil scored a goal in Ottawa's Game 6 loss to the Rangers; the goal was his second of the series.
Analysis: There is some debate as to whether Chris Neil should have been even playing in the game considering the hit he laid on the Rangers' Brian Boyle in Game 5, but Neil escaped a Shanaban. Neil likely won't score too often, but he has found some opportune moments to score in this series.

Sens' Neil Avoids Suspension

News: Chris Neil will not face discipline for his hit Saturday that concussed the Rangers' Brian Boyle, ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: Chris Neil, who enters Monday's Game 6 with a goal and an assist in the postseason, has obviously brought it physically in the series so far, having recorded a team-high 23 hits.

Sens' Neil: Hit To Be Reviewed?

News: Chris Neil's hit that concussed the Rangers' Brian Boyle in Saturday's game will likely be reviewed by the NHL.
Analysis: It wasn't late and he isn't a repeat offender. And the injury appeared to be the byproduct of a legal hockey play. But the Raffi Torres suspension was delivered earlier in the day and Rangers' coach John Tortorella drew a parallel between the hits during his post-game news conference. Expect an announcement before Monday's Game 6.
