The Flames have acquired Curtis Lazar and Mike Kostka from the Senators for Jyrki Jokipakka and a 2nd Round Pick.
Lazar has had a very difficult year that started with mono at the beginning of the season and never seemed to get it back on track. Lazar had three goals and one assist in 13 games with Binghamton (AHL) and one one assist in 33 games with the Senators. Following a few additions up front, Lazar would have been sitting or sent back down, so he gets a much-needed change of scenery as the Salmon Arm, British Columbia native heads to Alberta.
Lazar will be back in the Senators’ lineup on Thursday.
Lazar was a healthy scratch on Tuesday, but will replace Chris Neil in the lineup tonight in Tampa Bay. Lazar has had a tough time since being called-up recording just one assist in 27 games on the Senators’ fourth line.
Lazar (upper-body) will return to the Senators’ lineup on Wednesday.
Lazar has missed the last three games with an upper-body injury, but will be back in the lineup vs. the Sharks. In nine games sine being called-up, Lazar has no points, two penalty minutes and nine shots.
Lazar (undisclosed) will not travel with the team to San Jose.
Lazar left Monday’s game with an undisclosed injury and did not return and will head to Ottawa to undergo further evaluation. With Lazar out, the Senators recalled Phil Varone to take his place on the Senators’ west coast road trip.
The Senators have recalled Curtis Lazar from Binghamton (AHL).
Lazar has spent the start of the year in Binghamton, where he collected three goals and one assist in 13 games. Lazar’s return to the NHL means the Senators are concerned that they could be without Mike Hoffman and Bobby Ryan on Saturday.
The Senators have sent Curtis Lazar to Binghamton (AHL).
Lazar is recovering from mono and on Monday he was cleared for contact. The Senators believe the fastest way for him to get ready to play in the NHL is to go back to Binghamton. With Lazar going back, Tom Pyatt and Phil Varone will fill in on the third line.
Lazar (concussion) wil return to the lineup on Tuesday.
Lazar has missed the last three games with a concussion, but he is ready to play on Tuesday vs. the Canadiens. With Lazar out, look for Matt Puempel to come out of the lineup. Lazar has one goal and one assist in eight games.
