Pageau, 20, started the 2013-14 season with Ottawa and had one goal in eight games.
He has three goals and five points in 17 career NHL games, and made a big impact in Game 3 of the 2013 Eastern Conference Quarterfinals. His hat trick in the Senators' 6-2 win against the Montreal Canadiens made him only the second Ottawa player, after longtime captain Daniel Alfredsson, to score three goals in a playoff game. In 10 Stanley Cup Playoff games, Pageau has four goals, six points and eight penalty minutes.
Pageau was the Senators' fourth-round selection (No. 96) in the 2011 NHL Draft. He made his NHL debut last season after scoring 29 points in 69 games for Binghamton.
It's an incredible feeling just to see it go in and see the Joe go pretty crazy. Ever since the introduction there, I was kind of feeling the nerves, and to put that one home, I started to feel comfortable and I thought my play started to pick up.
— Nineteen-year-old Red Wings forward Dylan Larkin after scoring a goal in his NHL debut
