From trending topics to surging prospects to news and notes, this is your weekly roundup on all things Sens. The Senators entered the week on an eight-game losing streak, looking to change their trend on their trip to California. They faced off against the Anaheim Ducks first, who, ironically, also entered the game on an eight-game losing streak. It took four frames, but the Senators came out on top with Colin White scoring the overtime winner. The Sens didn't stop there, as they defeated the Los Angeles Kings 4-1 the next night. To end the trip, the Senators fell to Erik Karlsson and the San Jose Sharks 4-1.

Ottawa Senators

Long before he became one of the biggest and most disappointing contracts in New York Islanders franchise history, Alexei Yashin was traded to the Islanders from the Ottawa Senators back on June 23, 2001. At the time, Yashin was a talented forward with a high-skill level and offensive upside that was clearly appealing to the Islanders and their general manager at the time, Mike Milbury. So much so, that Milbury moved a budding defenceman, a frisky forward and a first-round pick in 2001. While Yashin spent the first seven seasons of his NHL career with the Senators, the team shipped the forward to the Islanders following two 85-plus point seasons for Bill Muckalt, Zdeno Chara and a first-round pick that turned into Jason Spezza at second overall in 2001. But how did the trade play out for both teams? Let’s have a look. Over Yashin Yet? In seven years with the Senators, Yashin was nearly a point-per-game player. He had 218 goals and 491 points in 504 regular season games -...

Ottawa Senators

The recent 5-4 defeat against the Carolina Hurricanes marked the eighth straight loss for the Ottawa Senators, putting them last in the NHL with 35 points (from 'GARRIOCH GAME REPORT: Senators' eighth straight loss stings - Ottawa Sun - 1/6/19). Over those eight losses, they've been outscored 37-20 and allowing five goals to a Hurricanes team struggling to find the back of the net seemed to be the cherry on top. The Hurricanes rank third-worst this season with 67 goals scored, despite having the second-best Corsi for percentage (CF%) of 55.64, giving them the worst shooting percentage at 7.1. With a high Corsi for percentage, it was expected that the Hurricanes would eventually find their scoring touch, and I guess all it took was to play, statistically speaking, one of the worst defensive teams in the league in the Senators. We're now at the halfway mark of the season with all teams having played between 40 and 45 games. For some teams, it's evident they're...
