Observations:

November 2016 – Dzingel received the call every young player hopes for on Monday, he was told to buy a place as he's sticking around in Ottawa indefinitely. The news isn't a total surprise given that Dzingel has been one of Ottawa's best players a quarter of the way into the season and sits third on the team in points with 10 and is the second highest scoring forward behind Kyle Turris. Brad Phillips
 
July 2016 – Ottawa has resigned Dzingel to a one-year, two-way contract. It will give the team another year to evaluate Dzingel before determining whether or not he is in the team's long term plans. He showed significant progress in his second professional season suiting up for 30 games with the Senators scoring three goals and assisting on six others. Solid numbers for a seventh round rookie. He should have a leg up over some other in a bid to earn a permanent third/fourth line role. But with a new coaching staff he'll need to prove his worth with a strong training camp. Brad Phillips
 
February 2016 – In the seventh game of his NHL career, Dzingel found the back of the net on a goal-crease scramble for his first NHL goal and third career point. Dzingel has brought a welcome element of speed to the Sens bottom six thanks to his NHL level skating ability. If his play keep up and depending on what management does at the deadline, he has a very good chance at sticking around Ottawa for the bulk of the home stretch. Brad Phillips
 

February 2016 – Dzingel will get a second chance this season to impress Sens brass this season having been called up to the big club. Sitting second on Bingh
