News: Michalek scored Ottawa's third goal of the night in their 5-4 win over Toronto on Saturday.
Impact: Michalek had a slow start to the season against Buffalo last Thursday with only one shot on goal in 14 minutes of ice time. With the emergence of Kyle Turris, Mike Hoffman and Mark Stone last year as legitimate scoring threats, Michalek will be counted on as more of a depth forward for the Sens going forward.

News: Michalek mustered only one shot on goal in Thursday's 3-1 win over Buffalo. The Sens' forward had zero points and logged less than 15 minutes of ice time.
Impact: Michalek skated for a meager 14 minutes and five seconds in Ottawa's season opener at Buffalo. The Senators' forward was only able to tally a single shot on goal. Michalek did not see any ice time on the power play and appears to be implemented as a relief player at best.

News: Michalek contributed one assist in Saturday's 5-4 win over Montreal.
Impact: Michalek continues to get a respectable amount of ice time - skating for over 20 minutes in Saturday's win. However, Michalek is still more of a grinder as opposed to a goal scorer or play maker.
