Ottawa have struggled to find any kind of momentum this season. They did not have a successful season last time around as well when they finished second to bottom in the regular season with an overall record of 33-47.

Alex Debricat has had a decent season for Ottawa so far, but he will look to improve his statistics a bit more. He has scored 5 goals and has provided 9 assists for his team in 17 games. He has been very effective against the Sharks in the past. He has a total of 4 goals and has provided 11 assists in 12 games against San Jose.
