Former Ottawa Senator Stephane Da Costa is lighting it up for CSKA in the KHL.

He decided he wasn't going to get a regular gig in the NHL to start the season and signed to play in Russia. In 15 games so far this season, Da Costa has scored 14 goals and registered 23 points. That's the kind of production that gets you noticed. Don't be surprised if an NHL team comes callilng once they have an injury problem or two.

Stephane Da Costa recorded two goals and two assists to lead France to a 6-2 win over Denmark on Monday at the 2014 World Hockey Championship.

He has picked up six goals and nine points in six games at the tournament.

Roussel leads the team in scoring, with 10 points, but Da Costa is right behind him.

Stephane Da Costa centered Ottawa's top line at the start of Wednesday's contest against Los Angeles.

He was filling for Jason Spezza, who sat out the game with a nagging groin problem. Coach Paul MacLean mixed up his line combinations throughout the night though and only his second unit (Clarke MacArthur-Kyle Turris-Cory Conacher) remained intact.

Stephane Da Costa is glad to be starting out the season with Ottawa, but he doesn't plan to be complacent.

"I'm definitely excited, but I'm not relieved yet," he said. "I'm on a two-way contract and I could go down tomorrow or in two months or in two weeks, so I've got to try my best to stay here all year." He practiced between Zack Smith and Chris Neil on Tuesday, but he isn't guaranteed to play in Friday's regular-season opener at Buffalo.

Stephane Da Costa might be retained as an extra forward to start the season.

He has played well at training camp and has filled in admirably on the team's top line while Jason Spezza has dealt with a "minor" groin injury. The Senators' other additional spot will probably go to tough guy Matt Kassian.

Stephane Da Costa's agent, Wade Arnott, says his client agreed to one-year contract with the Ottawa Senators.

The Sens extended a qualifying offer to Da Costa in late June after it was thought he might be moving on. There was also concern Da Costa might decide to head to Europe after playing in just nine NHL games last season. Da Costa could earn a role with the Senators in training camp, but he's unlikely to have any fantasy impact.
