  • Senators' Dillon Heatherington: Reassigned to minors

    Heatherington was sent down to AHL Belleville on Wednesday.

    Heatherington served as a healthy scratch for the club's previous two contests while Artem Zub (upper body) was sidelined. With the 27-year-old Hearthington heading back down to the minors, it could be an indication that Zub will be cleared to play versus Vegas on Thursday. Even if Heatherington is brought back up at some point this season, he figures to serve primarily as an emergency depth option.

  • Senators' Dillon Heatherington: Sent to AHL affiliate

    Heatherington was reassigned to AHL Belleville on Tuesday.

    Heatherington has averaged 12:20 of ice time and been held without a point over nine NHL appearances this season. The 26-year-old will return to AHL Belleville looking to add to his 11 points over 24 performances in 2021-22.

  • Senators' Dillon Heatherington: Elevated to NHL roster

    Heatherington was promoted to the NHL level Tuesday, Steve Lloyd of TSN 1200 Ottawa reports.

    Heatherington last appeared in an NHL game back in mid-December and has seen action in just nine outings for the Senators this year. With Ottawa reportedly dealing with potential flu issues, it's unclear whether Heatherington might be called into action versus the Lightning on Tuesday.

  • Senators' Dillon Heatherington: Demoted to minors

    Heatherington was reassigned to AHL Belleville on Tuesday.

    Heatherington's demotion comes as Thomas Chabot (undisclosed) was cleared to return to the lineup. In his nine contests this year, the 26-year-old Calgary native remains pointless and has just four shots on net. Even if he does get back up to the NHL level at some point, Heatherington's lack of offensive upside will limits his fantasy value.

  • Senators' Dillon Heatherington: Ascends to top level

    Heatherington was recalled by Ottawa on Wednesday.

    Heatherington will likely be on hand as a seventh defender for Thursday's matchup with Buffalo. He's gone scoreless through nine NHL appearances this year.

  • Senators' Dillon Heatherington: Assigned to minors

    Heatherington was demoted to AHL Belleville on Tuesday.

    Considering Heatherington hasn't logged an NHL game since Dec. 18 against the Flyers, his drop to the minors shouldn't come as a surprise. Even when he is on the NHL roster, the blueliner has failed to register a point in nine outings this year. At this point, even if Heatherington eventually becomes a full-time NHL player, he lacks an offensive upside and won't offer more than low-end fantasy value.

  • Senators' Dillon Heatherington: Placed on waivers

    Heatherington hit the waiver wire Wednesday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

    Heatherington has been a healthy scratch for the Senators for three straight contests, so this move doesn't come as a surprise. In the likely event the 26-year-old defender goes unclaimed on waivers, he'll almost certainly be assigned to the taxi squad.

  • Senators' Dillon Heatherington: Recovers from virus

    The Senators activated Heatherington from COVID-19 protocols Friday.

    Heatherington had been in virus protocols since last Saturday. The depth defenseman has gone pointless in nine games this season and is unlikely to get much playing time going forward, barring injuries to Ottawa's regular defensemen.

  • Senators' Dillon Heatherington: Enters COVID-19 protocols

    Heatherington was placed in the NHL's COVID-19 protocols Saturday.

    Heatherington has logged 18 hits and been held without a point through his nine NHL appearances this season. He was placed in the virus protocols earlier this season as a precaution after he came in close contact with someone diagnosed with COVID-19. The 26-year-old will not play in the next Senators contest as he did not join the team in traveling to Toronto on Saturday, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

    Heatherington has cleared COVID-19 protocols and is eligible to play Tuesday against the Islanders.

  • Senators' Dillon Heatherington: In COVID-19 protocols

    Heatherington has been placed in the NHL's COVID-19 protocols, TSN 1200 Ottawa reports.

    According to the report, Heatherington was a close contact, rather than a positive test, so he could be an option in the near future though he'll miss over versus New Jersey on Monday. In four appearances for the Sens this season, the 26-year-old blueliner has yet to get his name on the scoresheet and shouldn't be expected to offer much in the way of fantasy value even once cleared to play.

  • Senators' Dillon Heatherington: Back with big club

    Heatherington was recalled by the Senators on Saturday.

    Heatherington is expected to slot into a bottom-pairing role for Saturday's matchup with Colorado. He's gone scoreless through three top-level appearances this year.
