Colin White will be out of action for six-to-eight weeks after he suffered a broken left wrist on Monday night.

White was hurt blocking a shot in preseason action against Toronto and he underwent surgery Tuesday morning. He is slated to skate during his recovery to maintain his conditioning. It was expected that White would be able to claim a roster spot out of training camp because of Derick Brassard's shoulder injury, but now he'll miss the start of the regular season.

Parker Kelly has signed a three-year, entry-level contract with the Ottawa Senators.

The undrafted forward attended Ottawa's rookie camp and the team's main training camp on an amateur tryout. Kelly produced 21 goals, 43 points and 75 penalty minutes in 72 games for the WHL's Prince Albert Raiders last season.

Mark Stone amassed three points (one goal, two assists) in Monday's 6-2 preseason win over Toronto.

"These games are important for us to get back into memorizing the system," Stone said. "I thought it was a good start. The young guys played well, and the older guys showed glimpses of last year." He accounted for 22 goals and 54 points in 71 games last season.

Colin White appeared to be injured when he took a shot off his arm in Monday's preseason match against Toronto.

He left the ice favoring his left arm and it looked like he was still in pain after the game. "We've got to wait," coach Guy Boucher said. "I'm sure it hurt a lot. Wait until the swelling is down and see where it's at."

Mike Hoffman scored twice as Ottawa earned a 6-2 victory over Toronto Monday night.

Hoffman is coming off a campaign where he scored 26 goals and 61 points in 74 contests. Mark Stone scored a goal and registered two assists in the preseason contest. Tyler Randell, who got his first taste of the NHL last season, added a goal and an assist. Gabriel Gagne and Cody Ceci scored Ottawa's other two markers.

Ryan Dzingel has not been practising with his teammates the past few days due to a pulled groin muscle.

The Senators don't appear overly concerned at this point and expect Dzingel to return to practice in 5-7 days.

Colin White's chances of breaking camp with the Senators is very dependent on Derick Brassard's recovery from shoulder surgery.

If Brassard is not ready to go come the regular season, White, the Sens' talented first-round pick (2015), stands a good chance of filling the void. White has offensive upside as his 33 points in 35 NCAA games in 2016-17 will attest. Keep an eye on Brassard's recovery as it will directly impact White's fantsasy value.

Rookie phenom Thomas Chabot is trying his best to block out all the hype surrounding his making the Senators out of training camp.

The supremely talented defenseman stands a very good chance of cracking the Ottawa lineup out of training camp and making an impact offensively on the team's blueline. Chabot, who registered 45 points in 35 games in the AHL last season, received a tremendous endorsement from All-star Erik Karlsson on Friday. Karlsson told reporters that Chabot was "further along than I was at his age". We shall see. That said, Chabot should be on all Calder Trophy short lists this season.

Derick Brassard (shoulder) is hoping to play in Ottawa's regular season opener on Oct. 5.

Brassard won't be allowed to practice with contact until early October, which makes his goal of playing in the opener a little difficult. "We’re aiming for Game 1, but it’s kind of complicated," Brassard said. "If that’s not happening, I’m going to try and join the team as fast as I can and try to help out."

Ryan Dzingel will probably get a shot to earn a top-six forward spot out of training camp.

He received the opportunity last year because of an injury to Clarke MacArthur and now MacArthur's status is uncertain again. Dzingel skated alongside Derick Brassard and Bobby Ryan for most of the 2016-17 season, but he only contributed 14 goals and 18 assists in 81 games. Apparently, he worked on breakaways over the summer after he scored only four times on 37 chances when he was sent in all alone. Dzingel hopes to hit the 20-goal plateau this season.

Dion Phaneuf may play on the right side with Erik Karlsson sidelined during training camp.

Phaneuf mostly plays on the left, but he did see time on the right during his time with the Maple Leafs. "I've played both sides, and I'll play wherever they're going to ask me to play," he said. "You've got to be able to play both."

Clarke MacArthur failed his medical Thursday, so he isn't cleared to participate in training camp.

"Right now, we don't know much, but he won't be part of camp," said Senators GM Pierre Dorion. "He was disappointed, but at the same time, he looked in great shape (skating). He trained all summer." The Senators will wait for an update on his status, but for now his future is cloudy. MacArthur has sat out the majority of the past two seasons with concussion problems.

Derick Brassard (shoulder) will miss the start of training camp.

It's believe that Brassard could be a bit ahead of schedule in his recovery from off-season shoulder surgery. We'll keep you posted on his status.
Sep 13 - 7:21 PM

Clarke MacArthur is expected to report to training camp, but it's unclear if he'll be cleared to play this season.

TSN's Bob McKenzie spoke with Ottawa GM Pierre Dorion on the subject of MacArthur playing this year and he was non-committal on the winger's future/status.

Bobby Ryan intends to be on the attack more in 2017-18.

Ryan had much more success in the playoffs after he struggled to produce during the regular season. "I think I was a little more aggressive (in the playoffs)," he said. "I think a lot of the regular season I was trying to figure out where I fit within the system, how I was going to be aggressive. There's a learning curve with everybody, but it took me longer to kind of grasp how I could be successful, and it clicked at the right time. Going into this year, I won't have to do that. I'll know where I can be a little more aggressive, and where I have to stay back. The chances I can take, and can't." Ryan only had 25 points in 62 games in 2016-17.
