Neil had thumb surgery on Thursday; out 4-5 weeks.

Neil will be out for at least one month, which really limits the chances that he gets traded at the trade deadline. With Neil out, the Senators are getting a chance to look at young prospects like Shane Prince and Matt Puempel.

Neil is expected to miss 3-4 weeks with a broken thumb.

Neil, who has been subject of trade rumours leading up to the deadline, is unlikely to be dealt now as he is expected to be out until at least the second week of March. Neil broke his thumb in a spirited bout with Luke Gazdic on Saturday.

Neil (knee) skated with the team this morning; not timetable for his return.

Neil has been out with a knee injury since December 11th, but was able to join the team for a skate this morning. Despite being on the ice, he needs to be a full participant in a practice before his return is imminent.

Neil (knee) returned to the ice on Sunday.

Neil has been out since suffering a knee injury on December 11th vs. the Kings. He returned to the ice for the Senators optional morning skate ahead of their game vs. the Lightning. He was originally expected to miss “at least a few weeks” —he is already three and a half weeks removed from the injury so he appears to be right on schedule.

Neil is week-to-week with a knee injury.

Neil left Thursday’s game with a lower-body injury that was later deemed a knee injury that would keep him out week-to-week rather than day-to-day. Ottawa is back in action on Saturday and if Clarke MacArthur is not ready to return from the illness that held him out of last night’s game, the Senators will need to make a roster move.

Neil (lower-body) is expected to return on Saturday.

Neil has been out of the lineup for the last six games, he suffered a lower-body injury on January 30 vs. Washington. He has been a solid contributor of PIMs (99) to go along with five goals and one assist in 42 games.

Neil (lower-body) is a game-time decision for Tuesday.

Neil has missed the last four games with a lower-body injury that he suffered on December 30. He could be ready to return to the lineup on Tuesday, but we likely won't know until pre-game warmups. Fantasy owners in need of PIMs help should take a look at Neil, who ranks fifth in the NHL with 99 sin-bin minutes.
