Entries with the tag: curtis lazar
from Don Brennan of the Ottawa Sun,
Chris Neil knows what he saw on the controversial hit that sent his centre woozily to the dressing room late in the third period of Wednesday’s game against the Washington Capitals.
“Red,” said the Senators enforcer, who believes Caps winger Tom Wilson deliberately hit Curtis Lazar in the head. “I’m seeing red. You don’t like to see one of your players go down.”
While Neil was given two minutes for seeking retribution, Wilson, who later insisted it was a clean “hip-on-hip” hit, was given a major and match penalty.
“It was the right call,” said Senators coach Dave Cameron, adding that “tomorrow will tell the tale” for Lazar, who has already suffered one concussion this season.

The Ottawa Senators announced the signing of 2013 first rounder Curtis Lazar to an Entry Level Contract.
From the Club's official release:
The 6-0, 196-pound centre has recorded 93 points (58 goals, 35 assists) and 103 penalty minutes over 141 career WHL contests, all of which have occurred with the Oil Kings. He has also registered 18 goals and 13 assists over 46 career WHL post-season games.
Lazar recently attended Team Canada’s national junior development camp which was held in early August in Montreal and Lake Placid, N.Y. He has previous international experience in having helped Canada win the Ivan Hlinka tournament after recording three goals and one assist over five games in the summer of 2012.
