Milan Michalek was thrilled to be named to the Czech Republic's roster for the Winter Olympics.

"It was great, I was really excited, especially because I'm not having a really good season, so I'm happy to be on the team," he said. "I talked to the (Czech) coach three times this year and he said I'm going to be on the team, so I knew it before, but it's still good to hear it." Michalek has registered seven goals, 19 points and a minus-17 rating in 44 games, but his experience in international play likely played a role in giving him the nod for Sochi.

The Ottawa Senators (and fantasy owners) would like to see more of the Milan Michalek who was active in the team's 2-1 shootout loss to the Buffalo Sabres on Tuesday.

Michalek had Ottawa's only goal and fired five SOG. He's had two one-SOG nights sandwiched in between two five-SOG nights. If he can send more pucks on net more often, he could be closer to the sniper who paid off nicely for Ottawa in the past.

Milan Michalek hasn't scored in six straight games and he has just three goals in 18 contests.

"I know I haven't been good, I have to be better," Michalek said. "Everybody expects me to score and I expect it myself, too, so it's frustrating right now. But hopefully it turns around soon. I have to stay positive." His average shots per game are down to 1.8 and he ranks sixth on the team in that category with 33. It's a contract year for Michalek and he'll need more production to justify an extension or to get a good deal elsewhere.
