Mike Hoffman has been awarded a one-year, $2 million deal from arbitration.

That's a pretty good deal for Ottawa after Hoffman led the Senators with 27 goals last season. He posted 48 points in 79 games during his rookie campaign.

The verdict on Mike Hoffman's arbitration hearing won't be known until Sunday night at the earliest.

Hoffman and the Senators had their hearing on Thursday. The young forward led Ottawa in goals last season with 27. He was asking for $3.4 million while the club was countering with $1.75 million.

Alex Chiasson expected to be more productive than he was in 2014-15.

Chiasson had 26 points in 76 games last season, down from 35 points in 79 contests in 2013-14 when he was still with the Dallas Stars. "From the season I had the year before in Dallas, I thought I was going to come in and be more explosive, a little more offensive," Chiasson says. "Obviously that didn't happen. A lot has to do with confidence. It's hard when you get opportunities and feel like you can't finish. I think it's been a good summer for me to work on my legs, work on my speed." His struggles likely literally cost him as an arbitrator assigned him a $1.2 million salary for the 2015-16 campaign after he requested $2.475 million. The arbitrator's ruling was far closer to Ottawa's counter of $1 million.

Alex Chiasson’s arbitration ruling is a win for the Senators.

He will be paid $1.2 million for one year. The 24-year-old was part of the trade that sent Jason Spezza to the Stars last offseason. He had 11 goals and 26 points in 2014-15. The restricted free agent sought $2.475 million, while the Senators offered $1 million. "The arbitration process went as we expected - we had the opportunity to make our case, as did Alex’s group," general manager Bryan Murray said. "In our opinion, both sides made fair, detailed arguments and we are satisfied with the ruling of the arbitrator. We are happy to have Alex under contract and anticipate that he will be a productive player for us this season. Alex will be given the chance to have an important role in the team’s success."

According to the Ottawa Citizen, Alex Chiasson may be in a battle with Chris Neil for a spot at Right Wing.

Chiasson was awarded a one-year deal worth $1.2 million in arbitration early Sunday morning, but an every day-spot in the lineup isn't guaranteed for him. Ottawa has Milan Michalek, Bobby Ryan and Curtis Lazar on the right side already. At this point in their careers, Chiasson should have no problem beating Chris Neil out of a spot on the roster.

Alex Chiasson has been awarded $1.2 million in arbitration.

Chiasson was asking for $2.475 million while the Senators were countering with $1 million. The 24-year-old had a disappointing first season for Ottawa, as he finished with just 11 goals and 26 points in 76 games.

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.

Head coach Luke Richardson has agreed to a one-year extension with AHL Binghamton.

Binghamton is affiliated with the Ottawa Senators. He's coached the AHL squad for three seasons and has posted a 122-82-11-13 record. The former defenseman is a veteran of 1,417 NHL games.
Jul 7 - 6:25 PM

Buddy Robinson will enter training camp with a legitimate chance of making the Senators' opening game roster.

That's due in part to the departure of Erik Condra. Robinson had 34 points and 69 penalty minutes in 75 AHL contests in 2014-15.

Senators assistant GM Randy Lee has taken note of Max McCormick's work ethic.

"Max is one of those guys like Mark Borowiecki, he's going to find a way to play," said Lee. "He's ultra competitive. Between the whistles, he's really hard. And guys don't like playing against him. Guys didn't know ... we didn't know he could fight. We always saw his competitive side, but he was a college guy and we didn't know he would back it up that much with fighting. He took on a pretty big role (last season) and he surprised a lot of guys." McCormick had 20 points and 133 penalty minutes in 62 games as an AHL rookie last season. He was named the Hardest Working Player at the Senators' 2015 development camp.
