Pageau signed a two-year, one-way, $1.8 million contract with the Senators on Thursday, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

Pageau spent the majority of the 2014-15 season with the NHL club, logging 50 games with the Senators and only 27 with AHL Binghamton. He played quite well as a part of Ottawa's third line, registering 10 goals and nine assists for a total of 19 points in 50 games. Now that he's signed a one-way contract with the Senators, his days in the AHL have likely come to an end. He's still recovering from a leg injury he suffered in Game 5 of the Senators' first-round series against the Canadiens. However, he was able to return to Ottawa's lineup for Game 6 of that series, so he'll likely be ready for the start of the Senators' training camp in September.

Pageau is still recovering from a leg injury, likely stemming from Game 5 of the Senators' first-round series loss to the Canadiens, reports.

Pageau was forced to exit that match prematurely and initially looked questionable to play in Game 6 before the Senators signed off on his entry back into the lineup. Since the forward was deemed healthy enough to play through the injury just two days after suffering it, there seems to be little concern about his availability for the start of training camp in fall. After scoring a goal in each of the Senators' final three regular-season games, Pageau failed to tally a point during the six-game playoff series, putting a damper on any otherwise credible season for the 22-year-old.

Pageau, who received treatment on his knee Sunday morning, is good to go for the Sens' evening contest against Montreal, according to Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports.

Pageau, who left Friday's Game 5 with what was called a lower-body injury, is thus slated to remain in the Sens' lineup for Sunday's Game 6. Through the first five games of the series, Pageau has yet to notch a point, but he had recorded 23 hits and 14 blocked shots in that span.

Pageau is considered day-to-day after prematurely exiting Friday's Game 5 against the Canadiens with an apparent lower-body injury, Ken Warren of the Ottawa Citizen reports.

Pageau attempted to block a puck Friday but ultimately paid the price and is now in danger of missing Game 6. Until the Senators say otherwise, Pageau is in line to be a game-time decision ahead of Sunday's contest.

Pageau supplied the game-winning in Saturday's victory over the Flyers.

Pageau finished the season with a goal in four hits in each of his last three games, with his timely contributions ultimately aiding the Senators to a playoff berth. His third-line role might prevent the goal streak from continuing in the postseason, however, especially with the league's best goalie in Carey Price manning the net for the Sens' first-round opponent, Montreal.

Pageau recorded his seventh goal of the season in Sunday's 4-2 loss to the Panthers.

Pageau has been on fire lately as he's now tallied eight points in his last 11 games, including four goals in his last eight. The 22-year-old has 16 points on the year but appears to have hit his stride since a mid-February recall from AHL Birmingham.

Pageau recorded a goal on a career-best seven shot attempts Monday against the Sharks.

Pageau put ample pressure on goaltender Antti Niemi throughout the game, but didn't find twine until finishing off a give-and-go exchange with teammate Erik Karlsson with less than seven minutes remaining in the third period. The addition of Pageau from AHL Binghamton in mid-February has given life to the Sens' third line, as he's recorded a point in three straight contests. On the season, Pageau has supplied six goals and eight assists over 40 games.

Pageau potted his fourth goal of the season in Sunday's win over the Flyers.

That's three points in four games for Pageau, who has been playing well of late. Skating on the third line with Curtis Lazar, Pageau could be worth looking at in very deep leagues if he keeps up his strong play.

Pageau collected an assist in Wednesday's 3-0 win over the Ducks.

Pageau has picked up a point in each of his last three games, but he remains a depth option whose playing time often depends on the health of more experienced skaters.

Pageau was recalled from AHL Binghamton on Tuesday, Don Brennan of the Ottawa Sun reports.The Senators were down a forward after Clarke MacArthur (upper body) left Monday's game with an injury, so Pageau will step in to help the team fill out their ranks. Pageau figures to center the Sens' third or fourth line, a role that won't saturate him with much fantasy value.
