Pageau settled on a three-year, $9.1 million contract with Ottawa on Monday -- avoiding arbitration, Bruce Garrioch of Postmedia reports.

EDGE Analysis

Pageau tallied seven goals during the first two rounds of the postseason, but disappeared in the Eastern Conference finals as he managed a mere one goal and two assists. Vanishing act aside, it was a solid playoffs for the center considering he tallied just 33 points in 82 regular-season outings. Given the depth down the middle of the Sens' lineup, the 24-year-old will likely be stuck in a bottom-six role behind Kyle Turris and Derick Brassard, but his ability to play on the wing could increase his minutes during the 2017-18 campaign.

Pageau filed for arbitration ahead of Wednesday's 5 p.m. ET deadline, Bruce Garrioch of Postmedia reports.

EDGE Analysis

According to CapFriendly, the Senators currently have $10.71 million in cap space available, with Pageau and another forward in Ryan Dzingel being the only two restricted free agents in need of a fresh contract ahead of the 2017-18 campaign. Pageau is a shorthanded specialist who notched 76 points without missing a game over his most recent two-year term with the Senators, and that'll certainly be a bargaining chip used by his agent and/or an arbiter upon settling a new contract. The 24-year-old's camp can still negotiate with the Senators after the filing deadline passes.

Pageau opened the scoring and then assisted on Bobby Ryan's overtime winner in Game 1 against the Penguins on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

Pageau's perfectly placed shot off a great Bobby Ryan pass got the party started Saturday. Pageau has scored in back-to-back games and is now up to a whopping eight tallies this postseason. The 24-year-old is meshing well with Bobby Ryan and has been one of the best stories of the postseason. He fired five shots on goal in Game 1 and appears destined to play a key role in this Eastern Conference Final.

Pageau scored an empty-net goal during Tuesday's Game 6 win over the Rangers.

EDGE Analysis

Pageau stole Game 2 from the Rangers with a monster four-goal showing, and while New York was able to win consecutive games on home ice, the Blueshirts will wonder all summer about what could have been if they held onto their Game 2 lead. It's quite apt then that it was Pageau who clinched the series with the empty-net tally in Game 6. For the playoffs, the 24-year-old pivot has scored seven goals through 12 outings, and with his prime offensive years right in front of him, Pageau's fantasy stock is trending up.

Pageau scored four goals, including the game-winning tally in overtime to beat New York in Game 2 on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

Everything went right for Pageau on Saturday, and he was the fuel behind the comeback win. Specifically, he scored two third-period goals to tie the game before sealing the 2-0 series lead -- with a natural hat trick -- in the extra frame. The pivot also scored an unassisted goal in the first period. Considering he had just a single goal through the first seven games of the postseason, fantasy expectations should remain in check. Still, what an amazing individual performance from Pageau. The Senator faithful will be talking about this game for years to come.

Pageau went five-hole on a breakaway in Friday's Game 5, double-overtime loss to the Bruins.

EDGE Analysis

The Bruins' defense was slowed at center ice, only for a storming Pageau to receive an outlet pass and flip the puck into the cage for his first goal in these playoffs. He would also go on to slap a loose puck away from the net after it got behind allied goalie Craig Anderson during the first overtime. Pageau should continue to be an X-factor in the playoffs following his 33 points and a plus-13 rating in a full regular season.

Pageau worked with the team's top most talented offensive wingers, Mike Hoffman and Mark Stone, in practice Tuesday, Ian Mendes of TSN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Head coach Guy Boucher experimented with the line in Saturday's game against the Rangers and liked what he saw. Pageau appears to be in line for plenty of time on the power-play unit, although the coach says not to look too much into the changes as they could be rather temporary. Still, Pageau is a likely top-six forward to start the playoffs and an attractive sleeper in postseason pools and DFS play.

Pageau scored a goal while finishing with a plus-1 rating in Sunday's 4-2 loss against the Islanders.

EDGE Analysis

Pageau enters the postseason with goals in back-to-back games, and a total of two goals and four points with a plus-4 rating over his past four outings. While he isn't a mainstay in most seasonal fantasy formats, he will be a decent depth option in postseason pools.

Pageau recorded his 100th career point in Saturday's game against the Rangers, the 36th player in franchise history to reach the milestone.

EDGE Analysis

Pageau finished with a goal, assist and plus-2 rating in Saturday's home finale. A lot of Pageau's career output has been over his past two seasons, lighting the lamp 30 times with 45 assists and a plus-29 rating since the start of the 2015-16 NHL campaign.

Pageau scored the Senators only goal in Saturday's 3-1 loss to the Canadiens.

EDGE Analysis

Pageau has just 29 points in 74 games this season, but he's warming up with six points (three goals, three assists) in his last 10 outings. Pageau may be an easy grab off the wire in some formats if you need to fill an injury in the bottom half of your roster.
