The Ottawa Senators will be without Curtis Lazar indefinitely as he recovers from mono.
Mononucleosis is a notoriously difficult illness to overcome in a short period of time, which is not something Lazar nor the Sens want to hear. "We were hoping with the few days that we had it would be good enough," coach Guy Boucher said. "But it’s become a daily thing that we’re going to follow up and it’s going to be carefully monitored." The 21-year-old has posted just 12 goals and 35 points through his first two campaigns. Sep 25 - 9:35 PM

Curtis Lazar is excited by the new direction of the Ottawa Senators.

He is looking forward to working with new bench boss Guy Boucher, especially after learning Boucher plans to have open dialogues with the players to understand them better. "At times (last season), the communication between management, coaches and the players could have been better," Lazar said. "I have a lot to prove and I want to do everything I can to show that." The 21-year-old forward didn't have much of a defined role in 2015-16, while playing on different lines at different positions. Lazar is anxious to start training camp in the fall.

Curtis Lazar feels more comfortable playing center.

"I'm playing my primary position and I'm very happy to be back in the middle," Lazar said. "I think everyone has seen my speed, and strength on the puck, where I'm able to generate the offense. Playing with (Neil and Paul), our game is really simple but it's effective. Their defense started to hear footsteps every time we got on the forecheck and we caused turnovers. It's always good to contribute on the offense." He scored his sixth goal of the season against Montreal on Saturday. Lazar has 20 points in 68 games.

He had gone eight games without a goal, but broke out in this one. Lazar only has five goals and 14 points this season.

Curtis Lazar was benched Tuesday night and he finished with 10:59 of ice time

He logged 11:40 of playing time against the New York Rangers this past Sunday. Lazar has generated only two goals and five points in 25 games this campaign. "I think I've been in my head for some time now. I have to change the mindset for myself," he said. "Attitude is everything, regardless of where I'm playing. It's always up to me to make the most of the situation." There has been some talk outside of the organization that he could benefit from some time in the minors, but the Senators don't appear to be thinking of that right now.
