Sens' Michalek Scores In Loss

News: Milan Michalek netted his team's lone goal in Wednesday's loss to the Islanders.
Analysis: Milan Michalek picked up his fourth point in as many contests, but it wasn't enough to propel his team to victory. He now has 17 goals and 21 assists through 76 games on the season.

Senators' Michalek Lights The Lamp Twice

News: Milan Michalek scored two goals on six shots Sunday against the Flames.
Analysis: That's 16 goals and 37 points on the year for Milan Michalek, but his minus-24 rating is problematic, to say the least.

Milan Michalek

Michalek On Ottawa Scoresheet

News: Milan Michalek scored his first goal in four games with a tally in Friday's 5-3 win over Chicago, giving him four points the last five games.
Analysis: A closer look at his numbers will show he has two points in the last four, numbers more in like with the 35 points he has through 73 games this season. Milan Michalek will see plenty of top-six minutes for the Sens as the season winds down, but he's hardly been a consistent performer this year.

Milan Michalek

Sens' Michalek Picks Up Pair Of Points

News: Milan Michalek gathered a goal and an assist in Thursday's loss to the Lightning.
Analysis: With eight points in nine March games, Milan Michalek is enjoying his most productive month of the season, even as the Senators have dropped seven of the nine contests. In spite of his scoring, the team's losing ways have saddled him with a minus-1 rating for the month.

Milan Michalek

Three Points For Sens' Michalek

News: Milan Michalek delivered a goal and two assists in Saturday's 5-3 win over the Jets.
Analysis: The winger has scored in three of his five games since the Olympic break, with Saturday's performance going down as his biggest outburst during that stretch. He's seemed to adjust well to the addition of the newly acquired Ales Hemsky to his line thus far, as either he, Hemsky or linemate Jason Spezza had a hand in four of the five goals the Senators scored Saturday.

Milan Michalek

Sens' Michalek Scores Twice In Win

News: Milan Michalek scored his ninth and 10th goal of the season in Thursday's win over Buffalo. He netted the game-winner with 23 seconds left in regulation.
Analysis: After finding twine Tuesday against the Blues, Milan Michalek has now scored in back-to-back games for the first time this season. He is up to 25 points in 58 games on the year. He has shown some decent chemistry with Jason Spezza recently, with Spezza assisting on all of Michalek's last three goals. Michalek is looking good of late, also firing 10 shots on goal in his last two games, but his minus-20 rating isn't very appealing for his fantasy owners.

Milan Michalek, LW, OTT Sens' Michalek Struggling

Milan Michalek

Sens' Michalek Struggling

News: Milan Michalek is expected to skate on the second line Monday against the Penguins.
Analysis: Milan Michalek has seven goals and 15 assists through 55 games thus far, and is currently sporting a glaring minus-23 rating. The winger's previous career low was minus-12, so he'll need to really turn things around to avoid arguably his worst NHL season to date.

Milan Michalek

Sens' Michalek Nets Goal In Win

News: Milan Michalek was a plus-2 with a goal and a team-high five shots on net in Thursday's 4-3 win over Winnipeg.
Analysis: With two points, eight shots on goal and a plus-3 in his last pair of games, you've got to be feeling a little more confident about Milan Michalek. While we would hardly suggest a return to his 35-goal (2011-12) campaign is coming, his career numbers in January suggest an uptick in both plus/minus and points columns this month.

Milan Michalek

Sens' Michalek Tallies In Loss

News: Milan Michalek scored a goal in Wednesday's loss to the Devils.
Analysis: Milan Michalek's goal was his first point in four games, but on the bright side, it came on the power play. He was reunited with captain Jason Spezza on the team's top line Wednesday, so his fantasy value may be on the rise, as long as Paul MacLean leaves them together.

Milan Michalek, LW, OTT Sens' Michalek Expected To Play On Third Line

Milan Michalek

Sens' Michalek Expected To Play On Third Line

News: Milan Michalek is expected to play on the third line Tuesday against the Panthers.
Analysis: The Sens will try out Milan Michalek in a checking role alongside Zack Smith and Chris Neil, as winger Mike Hoffman will take his spot in the top-6. Michalek is off to a slow start, with just four goals and 10 assists through 27 games, and his move to the third line likely won't help. It will be interesting to see if he stays down there, considering he's probably a step slower than he used to be due to his recent knee troubles.

Sens' Michalek Playing Well After Injury-Plagued Season

News: Milan Michalek has delivered 10 points in 16 games for the Senators this season.
Analysis: While Milan Michalek's plus/minus has been dragged down a bit by the Senators' awful defense, he's produced as expected offensively coming off an injury-plagued 2012-13 campaign. Considering the wealth of offensive talent surrounding him, it wouldn't be a surprise if he made another push for 50 or 60 points as he has in the past.

Ottawa's Michalek Feeling Good

News: Milan Michalek said his knee is 100 percent healthy and feeling good heading into training camp, the Senators' official site reports.
Analysis: "I've been skating for a month - pretty hard too - and tested it, tested it good, and everything feels good now," Milan Michalek said. "I'm going to go full throttle and hopefully it's going to be good." A nagging knee problem limited him to just 23 injury-plagued games last season, but a healthy Michalek, reunited with a healthy Jason Spezza, could lead to a bounce-back season for Michalek, who posted 36 goals in the 2011-12 campaign.

Milan Michalek

Senators' Michalek to Visit Specialist

News: Milan Michalek will visit a specialist in Germany to determine his options for moving forward with his knee injury, the Ottawa Citizen's Wayne Scanlan reports.
Analysis: The knee injury lingered with him throughout the 2012-13 season, so getting healthy will be a top priority over the offseason.

Senators' Michalek Sits Out Sunday's Practice

News: Milan Michalek sat out Sunday's practice in order to rest but will be available for Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinals at Pittsburgh.
Analysis: Milan Michalek notched a goal and an assist during Ottawa's five-game series victory over Montreal, which followed up a 14-point, injury-plagued regular season. Since his knee injury has lingered throughout the 2013 campaign, a day of rest is preferable for his ultimate output.

Sens' Michalek Misses Sunday Morning Skate

News: Milan Michalek did not participate in the Senators' morning skate Sunday in preparation for Game 3 against Montreal, TSN.ca reports.
Analysis: Milan Michalek had missed nearly two months with a knee injury and finally made it back to the ice in mid-April. There have been no reports of another injury so this is probably just the team being cautious. He should be on the ice for the game Sunday night.

Milan Michalek

Ottawa' Michalek Scores In Return

News: Milan Michalek snagged one of Ottawa's two goals in Friday's 2-0 win over New Jersey in his first game since February 12.
Analysis: Milan Michalek had missed two months of action but was able to easily finish a 2-on-0 with Daniel Alfredsson and should give the Senators another scoring forward as they aim to solidify a playoff spot. He'll get a chance to score often and will hopefully reward owners that have held out for his return.

Senators' Michalek To Return Friday

News: Milan Michalek (knee) will play in Friday's game against the Devils, Sportsnet's Ian Mendes reports.
Analysis: Milan Michalek has played in just two games since Feb. 12 due to his knee injury, but he is ready to go after recovering from surgery and making it through Friday's morning skate. Michalek racked up 10 points and a plus-5 rating in the 15 games he appeared in this season, so he could provide a late-season boost for some fantasy owners.

Milan Michalek

Sens' Michalek Getting Closer

News: Milan Michalek (knee) is close to returning, Ian Mendes of Sportsnet reports.
Analysis: Mendes also mentions that it's up to Milan Michalek to give coach Paul MacLean the green light to play him, which suggests that he's already been cleared by doctors. It's certainly possible he could be in the lineup Tuesday against the Lightning, although Thursday against the Flyers or Friday against the Devils both seem like more likely options.

Milan Michalek

Sens' Michalek Out For Friday

News: Milan Michalek (knee) will not play Friday against the Sabres, the Ottawa Citizen reports.
Analysis: The winger practiced hard Thursday, and said he's much more comfortable skating on his surgically repaired knee than he was trying to play through the injury. Don't be surprised if he's in the lineup Sunday against the Panthers.

Milan Michalek

Sens' Michalek Will Travel With Team

News: Milan Michalek (knee) will travel with the team on the Senators' upcoming seven-game road trip.
Analysis: Milan Michalek skated in a track suit Monday to begin his rehab from arthroscopic knee surgery. Presumably, he will travel with the team to get some more skating in and possibly practice, but he is not expected to play any time soon.

Sens' Michalek Gets Knee Scoped

News: Milan Michalek underwent arthroscopic surgery to clean up debris in his right knee and will be out indefinitely.
Analysis: Though the Sens haven't ventured to guess when Milan Michalek might return, the fact that he underwent a scope, as opposed to a more major procedure, suggests that he could return at some point later this season.

Milan Michalek

Sens' Michalek Will Probably Have Surgery

News: Milan Michalek (knee) will likely undergo knee surgery, the Ottawa Sun reports.
Analysis: The Sens' top goal scorer from 2011-12 has been trying to battle through a nagging knee injury, but he hasn't quite shaken the lingering effects. Milan Michalek has missed 13 games this season, but Ottawa is hopeful he will be able to return for the playoffs, even if he elects to have surgery.

Sens' Michalek Still Sidelined

News: Milan Michalek (knee) isn't expected to travel with the Sens to New York, where the team faces the Islanders on Tuesday, according to Ian Mendes of The Ottawa Citizen.
Analysis: Milan Michalek, who last suited up on March 8, remains in the day-to-day category for now, following a setback with his balky knee.

Senators' Michalek (Knee) Out Over The Weekend

News: Milan Michalek (knee) will not play Saturday and Sunday.
