Sens' Michalek Scores In Return

News: Milan Michalek (concussion) tallied a goal in his return to the lineup for Wednesday's playoff-opening loss to the Canadiens.
Analysis: Milan Michalek was the closest Senators player near the puck when the Habs' Andrei Markov put it into his own net to give the visitors an early 1-0 lead. While the goal wasn't technically Michalek's own doing, he nonetheless made an impact right away, as he saw 15:58 of action while coach Dave Cameron deployed him on the Sens' second line. Michalek's reentry into the lineup bumped Mike Hoffman to a bottom-six role.

Sens' Michalek Set To Return Wednesday

News: Milan Michalek (concussion) is slated to play Wednesday against Montreal.
Analysis: The good news regarding the winger's status was relayed Monday by coach Dave Cameron, who noted that Milan Michalek is set to re-enter the Sens' lineup on Wednesday in place of Zack Smith. Michalek, who last suited up on March 21, finished the regular season with 34 points in 66 games for the Sens.

Sens' Michalek Practices Monday

News: Milan Michalek (concussion) skated on a line with Bobby Ryan and Mika Zibanejad at Monday's practice, TSN's Brent Wallace reports.
Analysis: We'll track Milan Michalek's status in the coming days, but assuming no setbacks, the fact that the winger was skating with Ryan and Zibanejad at Monday's practice would appear to bode well for his chances of suiting up Wednesday against the Canadiens.

Return Not Close For Sens' Michalek

News: Coach Dave Cameron said Thursday that Milan Michalek (concussion) is not close to a return.
Analysis: Cameron indicated Milan Michalek tried to "push it a little bit and didn't feel good" in a recent skate, so it looks like he'll be off the ice for at least the next several days. Don't expect the winger to return to game action before the end of the regular season.

Sens' Michalek Has Concussion

News: Milan Michalek's upper-body injury is being labeled as a concussion, TSN's Steve Lloyd reports.
Analysis: It's not overly surprisingly since Milan Michalek was forced to exit Saturday's win over the Maple Leafs after taking a shot to the head. Michalek has yet to resume skating with the team and should be viewed as out indefinitely until the Senators provide word otherwise.

Milan Michalek

Sens' Michalek Sidelined

News: Milan Michalek (upper body) will not play Monday against the Sharks.
Analysis: With Milan Michalek and Matt Puempel slated to be sidelined Monday, Zack Smith and Colin Greening are slated to re-enter the Sens line-up against the Sharks.

Sens' Michalek Takes Puck To Head, Doesn't Return

News: Milan Michalek took a shot in the head late in the first period of Saturday's game and did not return.
Analysis: There's no report on the severity of his injury or how long he'll be out.

Milan Michalek

Michalek Produces Three Points For Sens

News: Milan Michalek scored a goal and dished a pair of assists (one on an empty-netter) in Thursday's 6-4 win over Boston.
Analysis: The solid performance ended a three-game scoreless skid from Milan Michalek and probably felt pretty darn good after he'd been frustrated Tuesday in Carolina, firing six shots on net with no results to show for it. With just 34 points in 65 games on the year, though, he remains a modest fantasy contributor. The 30-year-old's career to this point can only be viewed as a disappointment in light of the fact that he was once considered one of the league's most purely talented players, but has never achieved the superstar level that was expected of him.

Michalek Helps Out As Sens Roll

News: Milan Michalek picked up two assists in Thursday's 5-2 win over the Canadiens.
Analysis: The talented, but oft-underwhelming winger has heated up of late, with six points in the last five games. He can't be counted on to keep it up, but Milan Michalek's worth an add in deeper formats while he's hot.

Sens' Michalek Picks Up Two Assists

News: Milan Michalek picked up two assists and fired four shots on goal in Friday's win over the Sabres.
Analysis: Milan Michalek has put up four multi-point games in his last 10 outings, giving him 11 goals and 28 points in 58 games on the season. While he's been inconsistent this season, the 30-year-old has found his stride alongside Kyle Turris and Mark Stone on the second line.

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.
