Senators Update: Paul, Zibanejad, MacArthur, Wideman

The Ottawa Senators have called up Nick Paul and if Mika Zibanejad is unable to go, Paul will make his NHL debut, as reported by TSN.  The 20 year-old winger has 17 points in 45 games with Binghampton of the AHL this season.  Zibanejad is having a strong season himself, with 35 points in 56 NHL games.  Zibanejad was ill and missed practice on Monday.  In additional Senators' notes:
  • After being concussed for the third time on October 14, 2015, Clarke MacArthur is getting jostled in practice with the Senators for the first time since the head injury, according to the Ottawa Citizen.  The 30 year old winger has played in just four games this season, after getting on the ice for 62 games last season, and putting up 36 points.  Although MacArthur is progressing well, he's being smart about his return to the ice for the Senators:  “I’ve got to be careful. I want to keep playing. If you come back too soon, if you’re not confident and you take another one, it’s game over,” MacArthur said.  “I can’t go back to that place. I just want to do it right.”
  • The Silver Seven blog takes a look at Chris Wideman and the chances that he'll re-sign with the Senators.  He's pegged as good puck-moving defenseman on Ottawa's third pairing.  And in 41 games with the Senators this season, Wideman has notched seven points (5 goals, 2 assists).
