Michalek wasn't on the ice for pregame warmups and appears to be a healthy scratch for Tuesday's game against the Blues, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

The Senators have dropped six of their last eight games, and though Michalek hasn't been a total void during that stretch (four points), coach Paul MacLean seems inclined to shake up his lineup with the hope of more positive results. Mika Zibanejad will also spend Tuesday's game with Michalek in the press box, as both Colin Greening and Erik Condra step in to replace them.

Michalek assisted on the Sens' two power-play goals in Saturday's overtime loss to the Devils.

Michalek had been held without a point in the Senators' first five games, but finally was able to break through during his 3:52 on the man advantage Saturday. While he'll continue to contribute on the Sens' second power-play unit, Michalek's role at even strength remains in flux, as he's bounced between the second line and the bottom six this season. The inconsistent quality of linemates could make it difficult for Michalek to replicate the 39 points he tallied in 2013-14 for the Sens.

Michalek was held out of Thursday's practice due to a "nagging injury," Wayne Scanlan of the Ottawa Citizen reports.

With the Senators not playing their next exhibition game until Tuesday, Michalek should have enough time to recuperate.

After a disappointing season where he registered a mere 39 points in 82 games, Michalek might be poised for a bit of a bounce-back campaign. That said, he will no longer have Jason Spezza to play alongside of and that may temper the extent of his comeback.

Ottawa GM Bryan Murray is optimistic that Milan Michalek will re-sign with the Senators.

He said "there's a good chance" that Michalek will be back next season. He just completed a six-year, $26 million contract, but it's expected that he won't make close to the $6-million figure he received in 2013-14. He is currently considering an offer from Ottawa.

Milan Michalek was the only Ottawa goal scorer Wednesday as the team dropped a 2-1 decision to the New York Islanders.

Michalek has now scored four times in his last four games to give him 17 on the year, but it's likely a case of "too little, too late" for his fantasy owners, who probably decided to move on earlier in the season. Chris Neil and Patrick Wiercioch drew assists on the goal.
