Senators' Alex Formenton: Tallies twice Tuesday

Formenton scored two goals on seven shots and added three hits in Tuesday's 4-3 shootout win over the Canucks. Formenton hadn't gotten on the scoresheet since his goal March 26 versus the Panthers, so this was an unexpected burst of offense. The 22-year-old has showed promise in spurts this season with 17 tallies, 13 helpers, 152 shots on net, 98 hits and a minus-12 rating through 74 outings. He'll continues to see a middle-six role, but his lack of consistency makes him a risky option in most fantasy formats.

Senators' Alex Formenton: Scores in win

Formenton scored a goal on three shots in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Blues. Formenton has now scored a goal in two of his last three appearances. The 22-year-old winger has enjoyed a breakout season in 2021-22, setting career highs in goals (13), assists (11) and shots on net (114). He should continue to log middle-six minutes down the stretch.

Senators' Alex Formenton: Back in action

Formenton (undisclosed) will play Tuesday versus the Blues. Formenton is expected to skate in his usual second-line role. He exited Sunday's game versus the Capitals early after a hit from Garnet Hathaway, but he's no worse for wear. Formenton has 22 points, 57 hits and 91 shots on net through 42 games this season.

Senators' Alex Formenton: Exits win early

Formenton (undisclosed) was removed from Sunday's game in the third period for what coach D.J. Smith called "precautionary reasons," Ian Mendes of TSN 1200 Ottawa reports. The 22-year-old forward opened the scoring in a 4-1 win over the Capitals with a short-handed goal in the first period before taking a big hit from Garnet Hathaway later in the afternoon that could wind up being looked at by the league. Formenton has 11 goals and 22 points through 42 games in his first full season in the NHL, and if he winds up missing additional time, Ottawa could have trouble replacing him in the top six with Josh Norris (shoulder) and Drake Batherson (ankle) still on injured reserve.

The 22-year-old Formenton entered the All-Star break on a three-game point drought, but he didn't need long to get back on the scoresheet. The Ontario native is poised to see top-six minutes in the second half of the campaign. He's earned his first 20-point campaign with nine goals, 11 assists, 78 shots on net, 49 hits and a minus-1 rating through 38 contests.

Senators' Alex Formenton: Dishes pair of helpers

Formenton registered two assists, two shots on goal and a plus-2 rating in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Flames.

Since the start of December, Formenton has four goals and five assists in 11 outings. The second-round pick from 2017 is up to 12 points, 50 shots, 35 hits, 19 PIM and a minus-3 rating in 27 contests. Maintaining a top-four role will be key for him to keep contributing regularly on offense.

Defending Filip Gustavsson and Alex Formenton! Sens UFA's, what to do?

First off, for the latest Sens updates, please follow me on Twitter at. Give me a Twitter follow, I will give you a follow too!. Last night the Ottawa Senators were in quite a tough spot playing their 5th game in 7 nights. Add in playing two back-to-backs during this stretch, coupled with the travel and the Islanders catching the Sens rested the night before, I had very low expectations last night. Although they lost 5-3 to the Isles, it wasn't until late in the 2nd period that NY started to pull away. The Isles knew they had a tired team on their hands and Ottawa faded as the game wore on. I'm not one to give a team a pass, but the Sens deserve it in this spot. In fact, no other team will have to play 5 in 7 this season! But I really wanted to talk about two of the Sens young players and what has gone on with them over the first quarter of the season.

Senators' Alex Formenton: Two points in losing effort

Formenton scored a short-handed goal and added an even-strength assist in Tuesday's 5-3 loss to the Islanders. Both points came in the third period, as the Sens tried in vain to rally from a 4-1 deficit. Formenton has two two-point performances in the last four games, but those are the only times he's found his way onto the scoresheet over the last month. On the season, the 22-year-old has five goals and seven points in 21 contests.

Senators' Alex Formenton: Strikes twice in rare win

Formenton scored twice on two shots in Thursday's 3-2 win over the Hurricanes. Talk about efficiency. Formenton needed just two shots and 9:41 of ice time to double his season goal total, helping Ottawa snap a six-game losing streak. Perhaps the 22-year-old winger still has another level to his game that he's yet to unlock, but Formenton's current fourth-line role on one of the league's worst teams just doesn't cut it for fantasy purposes.
