Player Notes

  • Nabs assist in overtime loss
    Batherson notched an assist and four shots on goal in Thursday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Stars.

    Advice: Batherson stole the puck from Miro Heiskanen and fed Derick Brassard for the Senators' first goal. Over the last seven games, Batherson has a goal and six helpers as he plays more of a setup role. The 24-year-old winger has continued to be productive on offense this season with six tallies, 15 helpers, 76 shots on net, 38 hits and a minus-18 rating through 26 contests. Obviously, the plus-minus is a big anchor on an otherwise solid stat line, and there's little chance he slips out of a top-six role. Rotowire.com 3 minutes ago
  • Pockets helper Thursday
    DeBrincat registered an assist, two shots on goal and two blocked shots in Thursday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Stars.

    Advice: DeBrincat set up a Travis Hamonic goal shortly after a power play expired in the third period. The assist was DeBrincat's fourth in as many games to begin December as he shows off his playmaking. The 24-year-old winger is up to 21 points (12 on the power play), 90 shots on net, 34 hits and a minus-6 rating through 26 outings. Rotowire.com 5 minutes ago
  • Manages helper in overtime loss
    Tkachuk posted an assist, four shots on goal, three hits and two PIM in Thursday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Stars.

    Advice: Tkachuk continues to do a little bit of everything except for blocking shots. He's got eight points in his last seven games after setting up a Thomas Chabot tally in the first period Thursday. Tkachuk is up to 30 points (12 goals, 18 helpers), 118 shots on net, 66 hits, 43 PIM and a minus-8 rating through 26 appearances. He's earned 10 of his points on the power play.

  • Lights lamp Thursday
    Hamonic scored a goal on four shots and blocked three shots in Thursday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Stars.

    Advice: The goal snapped a nine-game point drought for Hamonic. The 32-year-old isn't known for his offense, so it's not surprising to see him go quiet on the scoresheet for extended stretches. He's up to five points, 48 shots on net, 42 blocked shots, 39 hits, 26 PIM and a minus-2 rating through 26 contests this season. He should remain in a top-four role. Rotowire.com 12 minutes ago
  • Capitalizes on turnover
    Brassard scored a goal, logged two hits and added two PIM in Thursday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Stars.

    Advice: Brassard got the Senators on the board after Drake Batherson found him following a Stars turnover in their own zone. The goal was Brassard's fourth of the season. He's been in and out of the lineup lately as a depth forward, and with seven points, 36 shots, 35 hits and a plus-3 rating in 18 contests, the 35-year-old can be safely left on the waiver wire in most fantasy formats.
