News: Wiercioch (upper body) was activated from injured reserve Saturday, Dean Brown of TSN 1200 reports.
Impact: Wiercioch has missed the Senators' last three games with an upper-body issue, but is now healthy, and eligible to draw back into Ottawa's lineup if called upon. The 25-year-old blueliner will be a healthy scratch for Saturday's tilt against the Coyotes, however, as the Senators have won four games in a row, and have opted to stick with the same winning formula heading into Saturday evening's contest.
News: Anderson will guard the net for Saturday's road start against the Coyotes.
Impact: Ottawa will embark on its final match of a three-game road trip. Anderson has performed drastically worse away from Ottawa as he owns a 2.36 GAA at home this season compared to a road GAA of 3.12.
News: After having his season-long three-game point streak snapped Wednesday, Michalek has only eight points in 22 games this season while averaging 17:19 of ice time.
Impact: He's been on the ice quite a lot, but even averaging more than three minutes per game of power-play ice time has yielded just three points (all goals) for Michalek. Now four years removed from his last truly productive season -- 60 points in 2011-12 -- Michalek is of little fantasy interest outside of very deep leagues.
