Marc Methot suffered an injury while getting ready for the 2014 World Championship.
Methot will miss the tournament for "precautionary reasons." There's no official word on what his injury was, but he reportedly experienced back soreness. Given that his top priority is obviously the Senators, it's not surprising that he would be shutdown rather than attempting to play through it. May 6 - 2:26 PM

Marc Methot has accepted an invite to play for Canada at the upcoming World Hockey Championships.

It is sort of a consolation prize for players who are not with teams in the playoffs. In the coming days we will be hearing of additional invites for the Tournament in Belarus set to take place in May.

Marc Methot set a new career high with his fifth goal in Thursday's match-up versus Tampa Bay.

He scored into an empty cage after Lightning rookie Nikita Kucherov accidentally injured number one goaltender Ben Bishop. Methot has 16 points in 47 games this campaign, which is one away from matching his previous personal best.

Marc Methot will be in the Senators' lineup Saturday afternoon against the Hurricanes.

He was a healthy scratch Thursday night against the Lightning and will have something to prove against Carolina. That said, Methot is not exactly an offensive dynamo.

Marc Methot will be a healthy scratch Thursday.

"I love playing here and I want to be a part of this team," said a disappointed but seemingly understanding Methot. "Obviously when it comes down to a decision like that I've got respect it. The team played very well in Washington and whenever they need me to play I will be ready." Methot, who has been dealing with a minor injury, felt good enough to play Tuesday, but he was put in the press box for that game as well.

Marc Methot was surprised to be scratched Tuesday because he felt healthy enough to play despite having what is believed to be a minor hip injury.

"I was a little bit caught off (guard)," he said Wednesday. "I felt really good in the morning and it was their decision and I have to deal with that." He skated with Joe Corvo, who was a healthy scratch against Washington as well, during Wednesday's session. He could be back in the lineup on Thursday, though.

Marc Methot (undisclosed) will not play on Tuesday.

Methot's injury is believed to be minor, so he might be back on Thursday. He has four goals and 14 points in 44 games in 2013-14.

Marc Methot scored Ottawa's only goal in a 4-1 loss to the New York Rangers Saturday afternoon.

Marc Methot scored as many goals on Saturday (two) as he had coming into today's game on the season.

It wasn't enough for the Ottawa Senators, who lost to the Phoenix Coyotes 4-3 in OT. Methot now has 10 points in 33 games on the season, so he doesn't have no-brainer numbers. He did get more than five minutes of power-play time, however.

Marc Methot will get back into the lineup Thursday night.

He missed four games while recovering from the flu. Methot probably could've returned earlier, but the Senators were reluctant to make changes to their lineup. He will dress now and Patrick Wiercioch will sit. Methot has seven points and 88 hits in 31 contests.

Marc Methot (flu) is feeling much better and he could be back in Ottawa's lineup Wednesday night.

"I'm feeling good," said Methot. "I've felt good for a bit now. They made it clear when they were talking to me that they wanted me to get a few practices under my belt and get back to speed. I'm just working hard right now." Coach Paul MacLean may not want to tinker with his winning lineup, but Methot is a top-four defender for the Senators. We should know more about his playing status after the team's morning skate.

Marc Methot did not skate Friday as he is still battling with a flu bug.

There is no word if he will be able to suit up against the Kings Saturday afternoon. We would play it safe and keep Methot on reserve. Cody Ceci would once again play in Methot's place if he were unable to play.
