Phaneuf chipped in a pair of assists in a 5-4 win over Columbus on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Phaneuf hasn't been much of a contributor this season, managing just four points in all of December. If he's still on your roster, now's the time to look in another direction to try to make up for his weaknesses

Phaneuf (personal) will return to the lineup for Wednesday's clash with the Bruins.

EDGE Analysis

Phaneuf has missed the Senators' last two games while attending to a personal matter, but the veteran blueliner will return to a second-pairing role for Wednesday's contest. The 2003 first-round pick has notched three goals and 11 points in 32 games this campaign.

Phaneuf (personal) will not join the team on its trip to Florida on Saturday, Don Brennan of the Ottawa Sun reports.

EDGE Analysis

Phaneuf continues to tend to the birth of his child and is scheduled to miss his second straight game as a result. Ben Harpur drew into the lineup in his place Thursday and likely represents the top candidate to do so again Saturday. Phaneuf's next opportunity to rejoin his teammates arrives Wednesday against the Bruins.

Phaneuf (personal) will not play Thursday night against the Lightning, TSN 1200 Ottawa reports.

EDGE Analysis

There had been a sliver of hope that Phaneuf would join the team in Tampa, but it appears that he's stayed back home to attend to his personal matter. Rookie defenseman Andreas Englund was called up from AHL Belleville as an insurance option with Phaneuf unable to go.

Phaneuf is away on a personal matter and did not travel to Tampa Bay with the team.

EDGE Analysis

TSN added that he might or might not rejoin the team in Tampa. Phaneuf really shouldn't be a top option for your team anyway given his team's struggles as of late, so this shouldn't affect most owners. If he is on your roster, it would be wise to turn to another option rather than wait to see if he skates Thursday.

Phaneuf posted his worst plus-minus of the season in a loss to Minnesota on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

Making matters worse is that it was the most ice time Guy Boucher has given Phaneuf since Nov. 4. Much like the Senators' defense as a whole, he's better than he showed against the Wild, but both he and his team need to step up their games if they're going to be factors when the calendar turns to 2018.

Phaneuf dished out two helpers in a 6-5 win over the Islanders on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Phaneuf seemed to have left his scoring back in Sweden, as he hadn't found the score sheet since the Senators returned from their trip to Stockholm, a nine-game drought. His owners will be hoping December proves more fruitful than November did.

Phaneuf scored for the second straight game Thursday against Philadelphia.

EDGE Analysis

Phaneuf has been producing well this season, netting three goals in 10 contests. He's currently riding a three-game point streak and on track to surpass the 30 points he posted in 2016-17. The veteran rearguard isn't an elite offensive blueliner, but his quality ice time and role on the power play makes him serviceable in most fantasy formats.

Phaneuf is suffering from a minor injury, but is not expected to miss any game action, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

EDGE Analysis

Even with the return of Erik Karlsson from injury, Phaneuf still logged 22 minutes of ice time against Vancouver on Tuesday. Depending on the nature of his malady, the 32-year-old could see slightly less ice against the Devils on Thursday, but should still factor into the power play.
