Curtis Lazar got into his first NHL fight Thursday night.

He dropped the gloves with Columbus defenseman Kevin Connauton in the first period during a chippy game. Lazar has contributed just three points in 16 games this season and he doesn't have any fantasy value at this time.

Curtis Lazar skated with some his Ottawa teammates Saturday morning.

This is a big step in his recovery from a concussion. However, it was an optional skate and Lazar was working out with other injured and often-scratched players. He will not play Saturday night against Detroit.

Curtis Lazar's "upper-body injury" is a concussion.

"Lazar is progressing," said coach Dave Cameron. "Now he has started the exercise portion of the concussion protocol, and will continue to advance through that until there's a setback, if there is a setback." Lazar is out indefinitely after he was injured last Saturday against Arizona.

Curtis Lazar (upper body) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice.

Lazar wasn't expected to play on Wednesday to begin with and it's safe to rule him out at this point. He has a goal and two points in eight games in 2015-16.

Curtis Lazar (upper body) isn't expected to play Wednesday.

He didn't take part in Monday's practice after getting hurt on Saturday against Arizona. The Senators have not updated his status, so consider him day-to-day for the time being.

Curtis Lazar will not return to Saturday's tilt with the Coyotes after sustaining an upper body injury.

Lazar saw just 4:54 of ice time with 54 seconds on the power play before leaving the game. He was a -1 and without an impact on the score sheet. There's no word yet on the type or severity of the injury, but we'll keep you posted.

Curtis Lazar will start Saturday's game on a line with Kyle Turris and Mark Stone.

He will play in the place of the injured Mike Hoffman. Not a bad gig if he can keep it until Hoffman returns to action next week.

Curtis Lazar didn't practice Tuesday because of "maintenance" purposes.

He has been limping since he blocked a shot Sunday night against Montreal, but his status for Wednesday night remains unclear. "I was just told it was a maintenance thing today, so based on that yes (he'll play)," coach Dave Cameron said. "Now if there's any new information I don't have it yet." If Lazar isn't able to play then Shane Prince will take his place.

Curtis Lazar was able to finish Sunday's game after blocking a shot, but he will be re-evaluated.

He wasn't putting any weight on his foot after the match, but coach Dave Cameron didn't think the injury was serious. We'll keep him active for now.

Curtis Lazar moved up to the second line Wednesday night.

He joined center Mika Zibanejad and Bobby Ryan in a 3-1 win over Buffalo in Ottawa's season opener. Lazar sealed the Senators' win with an empty-net goal. He logged a career high 17:30 of ice time after he averaged 12:53 of playing time during his rookie year.
Oct 9 - 9:20 AM

Curtis Lazar is hoping to contribute more offensively in his sophomore season.

Lazar had six goals and 15 points in 67 games with the Ottawa Senators in 2015-16. "I expect a lot of myself," he said. "That first year, the points didn't come, but I didn't expect the points to come. It was a learning year for me and I played it safe for the majority of the year. I really wanted to gain the coach's trust. This year I'm going to take more risks. I'm going to shoot the puck more and play with that confidence and swagger we talked about the second half of the year, scoring those three goals in six games." Lazar wants to eventually establish himself as a top-six forward. He certainly has untapped offensive upside, but we're hesitant to get too optimistic about the prospect of him having much fantasy value in standard leagues next season.

Curtis Lazar leads Ottawa's forward group with 19 hits in four playoff games.

He is one body check behind defenseman Mark Borowiecki for the team lead. Lazar's linemate, Jean-Gabriel Pageau, is right behind him with 18 hits. The Senators' third line (Lazar, Pageau and Erik Condra) has provided energy, but they don't have a point in the series.

Curtis Lazar was a wrecking ball Friday night against Montreal.

The Sens' rookie registered eight hits Friday night and was very physical against the Habs. In fact, the entire Ottawa team has been hitting the Canadiens at every turn. J.P. Pageau and Mark Borowiecki had six hits each in the contest. Montreal is up 2-0 in the series but both games were one-goal contests that could have gone either way.
