Senators' Mark Kastelic: Shifted to long-term IR
Kastelic (ankle) was moved to long-term injured reserve Thursday, per CapFriendly.
Kastelic has already missed eight games due to his ankle problem, so this move simply rules him out for the Sens' back-to-back against Columbus and Seattle on Friday and Saturday, respectively. By putting both Kastelic and Ridly Greig (lower body) on LTIR, the team freed up the necessary cap space to activate Thomas Chabot off injured reserve.... See More ... See Less
Senators' Ridly Greig: Shifts to LTIR
Greig (lower body) has been moved from injured reserve to long-term injured reserve, CapFriendly reports.
Greig hasn't played since Nov. 2, so the move is presumably retroactive to that date. If that's the case, then he can be activated as early as Tuesday versus the Rangers. Greig has two goals and seven points in nine contests this season.... See More ... See Less
Senators' Thomas Chabot: Will play Friday
Chabot (hand) will return to the lineup Friday, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.
Chabot has missed the last 10 games with a fractured hand suffered versus the Islanders on Oct. 26. The talented blueliner is likely to lose some power-play time, at least initially, as Jake Sanderson and Jakob Chychrun may have passed him on the depth chart. Chabot had three assists in seven games before he was placed on long-term injured reserve.... See More ... See Less
Senators' Thomas Chabot: Expected to return Friday
Coach DJ Smith expects Chabot (hand) to return Friday versus Columbus, TSN 1200 Ottawa reports.
Although Chabot appears to be on track to make his return following a 10-game absence, Smith notes that Ottawa's medical staff will have the final say on the defenseman's status against the Blue Jackets. Chabot picked up three helpers through the first seven games of the season before suffering a fractured hand.... See More ... See Less
Senators' Joonas Korpisalo: Has rough night vs. Florida
Korpisalo stopped 33 of 38 shots in a 5-0 loss to Florida on Monday.
It was a bad night for Korpisalo, but in his defense, the first three goals he surrendered were scored on the power play. Florida was given a staggering seven attempts with the man advantage, and Ottawa offered him no offensive support, so clearly this loss isn't solely on the goaltender. All the same, Korpisalo has now allowed at least three goals in five of his last six appearances. He has a 5-5-0 record, 3.34 GAA and .902 save percentage in 12 contests this season.... See More ...

Senators' Joonas Korpisalo: Draws start Monday
Korpisalo will be stationed between the pipes for Monday's home tilt with the Panthers, Doug Plagens of the Panthers Radio Network reports.
Korpisalo will make his first start since Nov. 16 after missing the last two games with an undisclosed injury. The 29-year-old has picked up a win in three straight appearances, stopping 88 of 96 shots during that span. On the year, he's sporting a 3.17 GAA and a .906 save percentage through 11 outings....

Senators' Joonas Korpisalo: Available to return
Korpisalo (undisclosed) is available to return to the lineup Monday against Florida, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.
The Senators did not name a starter for Monday's contest, but Korpisalo appears to be ready to return from a two-game absence. He has posted a 5-4-0 record this season with a 3.17 GAA and a .906 save percentage in 11 appearances. If Korpisalo doesn't get the nod against the Panthers, Anton Forsberg will start for Ottawa....

Senators' Mads Sogaard: Heads to minors
Sogaard was reassigned to AHL Belleville on Sunday.
Sogaard's return to the minors could bode well for the availability of Joonas Korpisalo (undisclosed) ahead of Monday's contest against Florida.... See More ... See Less
Senators' Mathieu Joseph: Helps out twice Friday
Joseph posted two assists in Friday's 5-3 home win against the Islanders.
Joseph finished with a plus-2 rating, a shot on goal and a hit in 20:03 of ice time across 25 shifts. He has notched four goals and 15 points in 16 games, including four multi-point efforts. Joseph managed just three goals and 18 points across 56 games last season, so he is easily on his way to eclipsing that total.... See More ... See Less
Senators' Tim Stutzle: Another multi-point game
Stutzle scored a goal with an assist in Friday's 5-3 home loss against the Islanders.
Stutzle scored his fifth goal of the season at 10:56 of the second period to cut the lead to 4-2. He also had the primary assist on Drake Batherson's goal just 47 seconds later, but the Senators' comeback bid came up short. Stutzle has been on fire in November, tallying three goals and 12 points in his past seven games. He'll look to stay hot in Monday's game against the visiting Panthers.... See More ... See Less
Senators' Drake Batherson: Tallies two goals in home loss
Batherson scored two goals in Friday's 5-3 home loss against the Islanders.
Batherson opened the scoring at 10:25 of the first period with a power-play marker, and he added an even-strength goal in the third period. He took four shots on goal while adding a blocked shot and a hit. Batherson has managed five goals and eight points across his past seven contests.... See More ... See Less
Senators' Anton Forsberg: Lets five goals in during home loss
Forsberg allowed five goals on just 26 shots in Friday's 5-3 home loss against the Islanders.
Forsberg and the Senators had a brief lead, as Drake Batherson lit the lamp on the power play at 10:25 of the first period. Unfortunately for Forsberg, he coughed up four unanswered goals, and the Senators were unable to get back to even terms in the game. The 30-year-old Swede slipped to a 1-3-0 record with a 3.89 GAA and an .833 save percentage over four appearances in November.... See More ... See Less
Senators' Anton Forsberg: Tending twine Friday
Forsberg will be between the home pipes versus the Islanders on Friday, per Ian Mendes of The Athletic.

Highmore has averaged a tick less than eight minutes per game in three NHL appearances this season. He has one assist, no shots on goal and three blocked shots over that span.
