Nov 5 - 8:52 AM

Defenseman Patrick Wiercioch is hoping to make things work this season as a member of the Senators.

The offensive-minded defenseman struggled to remain in coach Paul MacLean's lineup last year, having been a healthy scratch on 29 occasions, but that hasn't prevented him from putting down roots in Ottawa. "You can worry about it, but it's not going to do much good for you," he said. "We're realistic of the business, and we kind of know what we're in for. Unless you have a no-movement clause, you're in play. That's just the way it is. You've got to see if you do get traded, it's an opportunity, another team wants you. There's just a lot of great fans here in Ottawa, and my wife and I really enjoy it here. We want to continue our stay." The rearguard's offensive abilities have never been in question, making him a potentially valuable fantasy asset if he can carve out a regular role in the lineup.

Mar 26 - 8:08 AM

Patrick Wiercioch has been a healthy scratch for seven straight games.

He has 17 points in 42 appearances this season. "In fairness to (Wiercioch), him, Gryba and Cowen as young defencemen in the league were expected to come in the league and we felt they were going to make strides and they didn't, at the start," coach Paul MacLean explained. "I think Cowen and Gryba have come a long a little bit better than Patrick has, but the play of Cody Ceci, coming up and being able to play in the league the way he has, is more of a factor with Patrick." He may play either Monday or Tuesday.
