Ottawa Senators

After it was announced that Ridly Greig would miss the remainder of the season with a sternum injury, TSN's Claire Hanna reports that the rookie forward was a full participant in practice on Wednesday. 

The 20-year-old was injured on March 23 against the Tampa Bay Lightning and has one goal and five assists in 16 games this season.

"It seems that he’s not at as much risk as we originally thought. He’s skated a couple times, but I’m still waiting for them to clear him, he’s not cleared at the moment," said Senators head coach D.J. Smith on Greig's status. 

A native of Lethbridge, Alta., Greig was selected 28th overall by the Sens in the 2020 NHL Draft.

Defenceman Thomas Chabot is slated to miss time with an injury with an upper-body injury and could be done for the season. 

"He's [Chabot] likely out a couple weeks," Smith said. 

The 26-year-old Sainte-Marie, Que., native  has played in 68 games for the Senators this season, scoring 11 goals and recording 41 points.
