The Ottawa Senators’ misfortunes continue.

The team confirmed that veteran forward Jean-Gabriel Pageau tore the achilles tendon in his right leg while training on Thursday. He underwent surgery shortly after sustaining the injury, and will be sidelined for a minimum of six months.

The 25-year old, who was selected 96th overall in the 2011 NHL Draft, registered 14 goals, 15 assists and a minus-14 rating in 78 games last season.

He is heading into his seventh season with the franchise.
