Ottawa Senators center Josh Norris made his mark with two goals in his season debut Wednesday versus the Capitals. His first goal, which came in a power-play situation, ended up as the game-winning marker in a 6-1 triumph. Norris had three total shots on goal and finished with a plus-one rating in 16:34 of action. He was among the team leaders in power-play time with 4:18. It was great to see him in action again after a shoulder issue kept Norris out for 270 days. Before losing nearly all of last season to injury, Norris had a big campaign in 2021-22 with 35 goals and 55 points in 66 outings, and he should be a regular scoring threat again this season.
Ottawa Senators center Josh Norris (shoulder) will make his season debut in Wednesday's matchup against Washington. It will also be his first appearance since Jan. 21. Norris worked with Dominik Kubalik and Drake Batherson during Wednesday's morning skate, and he should be part of the top power-play unit in the contest. With him having been out for so long, we can't expect Norris to be at his best right away, but he will add an additional gear to Ottawa's offense. Zack MacEwen is set to come out of the lineup to make room for Norris.
Ottawa Senators center Josh Norris (shoulder) will be unavailable for Wednesday's season opener against Carolina, but he isn't expected to be out for long. According to Sportsnet's Wayne Scanlan, Senators head coach D.J. Smith hopes to have Norris back shortly. With fellow forward Zack MacEwen (upper body) also battling an injury, the Senators will dress only 17 skaters on Wednesday. Ridly Greig is set to open the season as the second-line center, while Mathieu Joseph was also part of the top-six group at the morning skate.
Ottawa Senators center Josh Norris (shoulder) looks set to miss the start of the season, with the 24-year-old having suffered a setback in his recovery from shoulder surgery. Norris missed the entire preseason despite head coach D.J. Smith expecting him to be available. "We all thought Josh would go through a little bit of practice, take a few bumps and get in an exhibition game and away we'd go," Smith said Saturday. "And that just didn't happen." Smith added that he never thought the Senators would start the campaign without Norris. With Shane Pinto still unsigned, Ottawa is looking weak in the center department, but it could give someone like Ridly Greig a chance to step up.
