Description: Stars D Sergei Gonchar suffered a fractured ankle and is expected to miss 3-5 weeks
Insight: The 40-year-old Gonchar is no longer the 50-60 point guy he once was in Washington and Pittsburgh and his fantasy value at this point is limited. Stars' young defencemen like Jamie Oleksiak should see ice time for the next month.

Description: Stars D Sergei Gonchar (lower body) is questionable for Saturday night's game against Minnesota.

Description: The Senators have traded Sergei Gonchar to Dallas for a conditional sixth-round draft pick.

Description: Senators defenseman Sergei Gonchar is probable for Saturday's game against Tampa Bay with an undisclosed injury.

Description: Senators defenseman Sergei Gonchar has scored 13 points during his eight-game streak.
Insight: Gonchar had zero goals and 10 assists over his previous seven games and added a goal and two assists Tuesday against the Islanders. He has replaced the injured Erik Karlsson as the team's go-to blueliner on the power play.

Description: Senators defenseman Sergei Gonchar had an assist Sunday against the Islanders. It was his first point in the last nine games.
Insight: Gonchar had one goal and seven points through his first 11 games but prior to Sunday he had not had a point since Erik Karlsson suffered a lacerated Achilles on Feb. 13.
 
2/7/2013 3:20:00 PM
Description: Senators defenseman Sergei Gonchar has recovered from the flu and will be in the lineup Thursday against Carolina.
Insight: Gonchar hasn't appeared in a game since Friday (also against the Hurricanes). Fantasy owners should keep in mind that it's not 2007. Gonchar is an aging player with increasingly limited fantasy appeal. With that said, he's off to a much better start than he got off to last season (four points in his first seven games).

Description: Ottawa defenseman Sergei Gonchar is questionable for Tuesday's game against Buffalo. He's dealing with flu-like symptoms.
Insight: Gonchar was dealing with a lower body issue prior to catching the flu and has missed two of the team's last three games. He's still an offensive defenseman, just not at the level he once was. He had 37 points last season and a goal and three assists in seven games this season.

Description: Senators' defenseman Sergei Gonchar was selected for the KHL All-Star game. He produced 29 points in 37 games for Magnitogorsk Metallurg.
Insight: Gonchar has not been as productive with Ottawa as he was in Pittsburgh and Washington, but his numbers in Russia could be an indication that he'll be improved in 2013. Don't overlook him in your fantasy draft.
 
12/20/2011 12:48:00 PM
Description: Sergei Gonchar and Filip Kuba are expected to return to the Senators' lineup on Tuesday against Buffalo. TSN
Insight: Gonchar missed the past four games with a neck injury, while Kuba missed the past nine games with a shoulder injury. Gonchar is having a decent bounce-back year with 19 points (2g-17a) and a 0 rating in 28 games.

3/1/2011 3:00:00 PM
Description: Sergei Gonchar, Chris Neil, and Jesse Winchester are all expected to return to the Senators' lineup on Tuesday against Boston. TSN
Insight: Don't rush Gonchar back into your lineup, since he has just 22 points and a (-16) in 57 games for the now-rebuilding Senators. It's a surprise that the Sens didn't trade Neil, although they couldn't trade Gonchar because of his massive contract.

Description: Sergei Gonchar and Chris Campoli are both expected to miss Friday's and Saturday's games due to injury. TSN
