Two More Senators Go Down To Injury, Adding To Team's Woes

New Ottawa Senators owner Michael Andlauer must be wondering what he did to deserve all this. The news keeps getting worse in Canada's capital, as the Sens have now lost two more players to injury, both in Thursday night's game against the Los Angeles Kings.

Both middle-six centre Ridly Greig and 4th-line forward Mark Kastelic are expected to miss several games, per Senators head coach D.J. Smith. Both are being evaluated today, upon which they'll have a better idea of return timelines.

Both players suffered lower-body injuries and were not able to return.

These latest injuries, of course, just pile on to the dreadful news that has consumed the Senators in recent weeks. On the lineup side of things, Greig and Kastelic join Thomas Chabot, Artem Zub and Erik Brannstrom on the sidelines. The latter skated today and might not be far off, though Zub will still miss a few games, and Chabot is about a month away from returning.

Off the ice, the Sens have been dealing with all sorts of controversy, having a first-round draft pick stripped from them in the Dadonov affair, Shane Pinto serving a 41-game suspension for gambling, and GM Pierre Dorion being fired.

And oh yes, they're in last place in the Atlantic Division with just eight points.
