Sens' Michalek Scorching The Score Sheet

News: Milan Michalek picked up two assists in Saturday's win over Florida and now has seven points, including three goals, in his last four games.
Analysis: Holy hot streak -- he has really picked up the pace in the last few weeks after scuffling most of the season. Check your wire; he may be there. After all, he had 15 points in his first 43 games. He now has nine points in his last nine games.

Sens' Michalek Adds Goal, Assist In Win

News: Milan Michalek recorded a goal and an assist in Wednesday's 4-2 win over the Canadiens.
Analysis: The veteran winger has had a rough season after battling through a couple injury riddled campaigns over the last few years, but has come on strong recently. He now has 11 goals and 11 assists in 51 games, including six points in his last five contests.

Three Points For Sens' Michalek

News: Milan Michalek found the back of the net twice and chipped in an assist in Saturday's 7-2 rout of the visiting Oilers.
Analysis: What a performance by the 30-year-old, who now has five points in his last six games -- four of them goals -- and 20 points on the season. Milan Michalek has been somewhat of a disappointment this year after recording 60 and 39 points in his last two full seasons with the Sens, but at least his minus-4 rating isn't nearly as bad as the minus-25 mark he put up in 2013-14.

Sens' Michalek Claims Goal In Win

News: Milan Michalek vanquished the Sabres' upset effort in Tuesday's game, netting the winning goal with less than eight minutes remaining in the third period.
Analysis: Milan Michalek has only eight goals on the season, but five have come within the last month. He continues to hang on to a role on the Sens' second line, but with the team's offense lacking explosiveness, scoring opportunities likely won't be plentiful.

Sens' Michalek On Modest Streak

News: Milan Michalek picked up two assists Thursday against Montreal, giving him points in three straight games.
Analysis: He scored a goal Saturday in Arizona and Tuesday in Dallas, and now with this performance, Milan Michalek has twice as many points in the last three games as he'd collected in the preceding 18. This has been easily the worst offensive season of his career, but perhaps these last few games have been the beginning of a campaign-saving hot streak.

Sens' Michalek Grabs Goal

News: Milan Michalek tallied a power-play goal in Saturday's win over the Coyotes.
Analysis: Milan Michalek's fourth marker of the season tied the game at one apiece and commenced a run of five unanswered goals by the Senators, who quickly ran away with the contest. The veteran winger hadn't registered a single point in his last eight games and has a total of just three over his last 19 contests.

Ottawa's Michalek To Return Monday

News: Milan Michalek (upper body) has been activated from injured reserve and will play Monday against the Sabres, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.
Analysis: The Sabres cleared a spot for Milan Michalek's return by placing Marc Methot (back) on IR in a corresponding move. He's been skating with the team since Friday and appears to set to play on what looks to be the third line Monday with Colin Greening and David Legwand.

Sens' Michalek (Upper Body) Practices Friday

News: Milan Michalek (upper body) joined the team for Friday's practice, TSN 1200's Steve Lloyd reports.
Analysis: Because he's already been placed on injured reserve, Milan Michalek won't be an option for Saturday's game against the Bruins. If he's able to practice again Saturday and Sunday without any setbacks, there's a good likelihood that Michalek would be activated in advance of the Senators' following match Monday in Buffalo.

Sens Place Michalek On IR

News: Milan Michalek (upper body) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, Ian Mendes of TSN 1200 reports.
Analysis: Milan Michalek's IR designation carries a retroactive date of Dec. 6, meaning he'll be out for at least the next two games. The Senators used his roster spot to activate defenseman Patrick Wiercioch, who has recovered from his muscle strain.

Sens' Michalek Out With Upper Body Injury

News: Milan Michalek (upper body) will be out for the Senators' game on Sunday against the Canucks, Wayne Scanlan of the Ottawa Citizen reports.
Analysis: It is unclear how severe the injury is but for now, Milan Michalek will be replaced by Mark Stone. After a successful 2013-14 season, in which he scored 39 points, Michalek has struggled this season, scoring just two goals and six assists in 25 games played.

Sens Scratch Michalek On Tuesday

News: Milan Michalek wasn't on the ice for pregame warmups and will be a healthy scratch for Tuesday's game against the Blues, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.
Analysis: The Senators have dropped six of their last eight games, and though Milan Michalek hasn't been a total void during that stretch (four points), coach Paul MacLean seems inclined to shake up his lineup in an attempt to find some more productive trios. Mika Zibanejad will also spend Tuesday's game with Michalek in the press box, as both Colin Greening and Erik Condra step in to replace them.

Sens' Michalek Claims First Two Points

News: Milan Michalek assisted on the Sens' two power-play goals in Saturday's overtime loss to the Devils.
Analysis: Milan Michalek had been held without a point in the Senators' first five games, but finally was able to break through during his 3:52 on the man advantage Saturday. While he'll continue to contribute on the Sens' second power-play unit, Michalek's role at even strength remains in flux, as he's bounced between the second line and the bottom six this season. The inconsistent quality of linemates could make it difficult for Michalek to replicate the 39 points he tallied in 2013-14 for the Sens.

Sens' Michalek Returns To Practice

News: Milan Michalek (hip flexor) returned to practice Monday, Ken Warren of the Ottawa Citizen reports.
Analysis: Milan Michalek was off the ice over the weekend after sustaining the hip injury in an earlier practice, but he appears in the clear for the remainder of the Senators' exhibition schedule. The Senators expect to deploy Michalek on their second line this season.

Sens' Michalek Slowed By Nagging Injury

News: Milan Michalek was held out of Thursday's practice due to a "nagging injury," Wayne Scanlan of the Ottawa Citizen reports.
Analysis: Coach Don MacLean didn't seem concerned about Milan Michalek potentially missing several days as a result of the injury, so consider his absence from practice as precautionary more than anything. With the Senators not playing their next exhibition game until Tuesday, Michalek should have enough time to recuperate.

Michalek Re-Signs With Senators

News: Milan Michalek re-signed with the Senators on a three-year, $12 million contract Tuesday, TSN's Bob McKenzie reports.
Analysis: Milan Michalek tallied a modest 39 points last season, but he did play in all 82 games for the first time in his career, evidently showing enough to convince the Senators to bring him back for another three years. Michalek will likely slot into the left wing spot on the Senators' second line in 2014-15.

Sens' Michalek Struggles To Score

News: Milan Michalek finished the season with 17 goals and 22 assists in 82 games.
Analysis: The good news is that Milan Michalek stayed healthy through the entire season after battling a knee injury for most of 2013, but he didn't perform quite as well as the team had hoped. His 39 points were nowhere near his 2011-12 season total of 60, and his lack of production could factor into what happens to him this summer when he becomes an unrestricted free agent.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
