Sens' Anderson Still Not Ready To Play

News: Craig Anderson (hand) will not be available for Saturday's game against the Sharks, Don Brennan of the Ottawa Sun reports.
Analysis: Craig Anderson seemed to be trending toward a return by facing a number of shots during practices the last few days, but there's still no clear timetable for when he might be able to play. While the lack of clarity regarding Anderson's return date is undoubtedly an annoyance for fantasy owners, the Senators have done just fine without him. In the absence of Anderson and No. 2 goalie Robin Lehner (concussion), the Senators have stumbled into a hot goalie in Andrew Hammond, who has won four straight starts while posting a 0.75 GAA.

Sens' Anderson Able To Practice

News: Craig Anderson (hand) was able to make it through practice Tuesday, though it doesn't appear that he's close to returning, the Ottawa Citizen reports.
Analysis: Andrew Hammond has already been confirmed as the starter for Wednesday against the Ducks. "He finished another practice, so that's real good," coach Dave Cameron said. "That's two in a row. He's seeing lots of shots. To me, that's all good. But nobody has told me he's going to back up."

Sens' Anderson Progressing

News: Craig Anderson, who indicated that he is dealing with a "deep" bone bruise" on his hand, is slated to travel with the Sens on the team's five-game road trip, which opens up Wednesday against the Ducks, Ian Mendes of TSN 1200 reports.
Analysis: Per the report, Craig Anderson is not a lock to play on the team's upcoming road trip, but his participation in practice on Monday does represent progress toward a return to game action.

Sens' Anderson Facing Uncertain Return Date

News: General manager Bryan Murray reiterated Friday that he isn't certain when Craig Anderson (hand) might be ready to return from injured reserve, Wayne Scanlan of the Ottawa Citizen reports.
Analysis: Craig Anderson has already missed about a month due to a deep contusion on his hand, far longer than the team initially anticipated. While a bruise isn't an overly serious injury, it's provided complications for Anderson in maneuvering a stick with his blocker hand. He's been able to practice off and on for the last couple of weeks, but until he notices more healing with the injured hand, the Senators don't want to risk using him in games. With Anderson and Robin Lehner (concussion) both out indefinitely, Andrew Hammond has since assumed the No. 1 goalie gig for the Senators.

Suns' Anderson May Not Be Close To Return

News: Senators coach Dave Cameron said Monday that, so far as he knows, Craig Anderson (hand) is not close to making a return, the Ottawa Sun's Bruce Garrioch reports.
Analysis: There have been hints at some kind of setback with Craig Anderson's hand, but the Senators haven't provided anything definitive on that front. With Robin Lehner (undisclosed) now bothered by an injury of his own, Andrew Hammond may get the start Wednesday against Montreal.

Craig Anderson

Sens' Anderson Not Ready To Play

News: Craig Anderson (hand) will not be activated from injured reserve ahead of Tuesday's game against the Sabres, TSN's Steve Lloyd reports.
Analysis: Over the past weekend, coach Dave Cameron left the door open for Craig Anderson possibly returning to action Tuesday as the back up to Robin Lehner, but those plans were quashed when the injured goalie failed to practice Monday. It doesn't sound like Anderson is dealing with any significant setback in his recovery, but he'll likely need to get in another practice or two before the team feels comfortable activating him.

Sens' Anderson Could Serve As Backup Tuesday

News: Senators coach Dave Cameron said Saturday that he "wouldn't rule out" Craig Anderson (hand) backing up Robin Lehner in Buffalo on Tuesday, Wayne Scanlan of the Ottawa Citizen reports.
Analysis: Craig Anderson faced shots during Friday's practice but was ultimately deemed unavailable to serve in a backup capacity Saturday against the Blue Jackets. It sounds like Anderson could return to the ice Tuesday, though Cameron's comments effectively lock Lehner in for his sixth straight start.

Sens' Anderson Won't Return Saturday

News: Craig Anderson (hand) will not return to action Saturday against the Blue Jackets, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.
Analysis: Coach Dave Cameron had already confirmed Robin Lehner as the Saturday starter following Friday's practice, but there was an outside chance for Craig Anderson to be available in a backup capacity. However, after he was absent from Saturday's morning skate, it looks like his activation from injured reserve will have to wait another couple days. His next chance to return will come Tuesday against the Sabres.

Sens' Anderson (Hand) Taking Shots At Practice

News: Craig Anderson (hand) faced shots at Friday's practice, Slyvain St-Laurent of RDS reports.
Analysis: Craig Anderson is considered day-to-day, and he hasn't been ruled out for Saturday's game against the Blue Jackets. The Senators may have an update on Anderson's status following Friday's practice.

Sens Listing Anderson As Day-To-Day

News: Craig Anderson won't be available for Thursday's game against the Capitals, but the Senators are considering him day-to-day, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.
Analysis: Craig Anderson tested out his hand on the ice Wednesday morning, facing a few shots during the session. Since it appears he's still feeling a bit limited by the injury, the Senators will continue to stash him on IR for a little longer, but there is some optimism he might be available over the weekend.

Sens' Anderson Remains Out Tuesday

News: Craig Anderson (hand) will not be available for Tuesday's game against the Devils, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.
Analysis: There was some hope Craig Anderson might be ready to play Tuesday after he resumed skating Saturday, but it looks like he isn't quite healthy just yet. Robin Lehner will make another start in goal in Anderson's stead, while Andrew Hammond serves as the backup goalie.

Sens' Anderson Resumes Skating

News: Craig Anderson (hand) resumed skating Saturday morning, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.
Analysis: Craig Anderson remains unavailable for a second straight game Saturday against the Coyotes, but his return to the ice affirms that his injury is in the day-to-day category. He'll likely increase his activity during practices the next two days in preparation for a return to action Tuesday against the Devils.

Sens' Anderson Out For Saturday

News: Craig Anderson (hand) wasn't on the ice for Friday's practice, Don Brennan of the Ottawa Sun reports.
Analysis: With Craig Anderson still recovering from the injury, coach Dave Cameron went ahead and confirmed Robin Lehner as Ottawa's starting goalie for Saturday's game against Arizona. The organization still seem to believe that Anderson's injury is minor, but he'll have to resume practicing before his return can be viewed as forthcoming.

Sens Place Anderson On IR With Hand Injury

News: Craig Anderson (hand) was placed on injured reserve Thursday.
Analysis: According to the Ottawa Sun's Bruce Garrioch, The Senators seemingly view Craig Anderson's injury to be a day-to-day situation, but it was significant enough to keep him out for Thursday's game against the Stars. Fortunately, because of the recent break for the NHL All-Star break, Anderson's IR stint can be backdated to Jan. 21, which will enable him to suit up Saturday against the Coyotes if team doctors deem him ready to go.

Senators' Anderson Out With Hand Injury

News: Craig Anderson is dealing with a hand injury and will not play Thursday, Brent Wallace of TSN Ottawa reports.
Analysis: The extent of Craig Anderson's setback uncertain, but replacement goaltender Andrew Hammond was called up on an emergency basis, which indicates Anderson should not be sidelined long. While Hammond will be active, Robin Lehner will get the start in Thursday's matchup with the Stars.

Sens' Anderson Allows Three In Win

News: Craig Anderson stopped 37 of the 40 shots he faced in Wednesday's 4-3 win over the Maple Leafs.
Analysis: Craig Anderson got back on the right track Wednesday, earning his first win in his last three starts. Despite the team's lack of success, Anderson is actually turning in a stellar season so far, ranking sixth in the league with a .927 save percentage in 31 appearances.

Sens Stay With Anderson

News: Craig Anderson will start Wednesday's game against the Leafs.
Analysis: Craig Anderson, who has allowed three goals in each of his last two starts -- both losses -- has a nice matchup on paper Wednesday, with the slumping Leafs in the midst of a five-game slide.

Anderson, Sens Defeated In OT

News: Craig Anderson made 32 saves on 35 shots Tuesday, but that 35th shot was a beautiful redirection by the Rangers' Carl Hagelin in overtime, resulting in a 3-2 loss.
Analysis: Craig Anderson's given up three goals in two consecutive games -- both losses. Lately, as he's gone, so have the Senators. Since Dec. 11, Anderson has given up three-plus goals five times and is 0-2-3 in those games; in his other eight starts in that span, he's gone 6-1-1 while allowing a total of 11 goals.

Sens Turn To Anderson On Tuesday

News: Craig Anderson will start Tuesday's game against the Rangers.
Analysis: Craig Anderson -- who allowed three goals on 28 shots in Saturday's loss to the Hurricanes -- will try to bounce back Tuesday against a Rangers' squad that has won two straight, including a 5-2 win over Pittsburgh on Sunday.

Sens' Anderson: 25 Saves In Loss

News: Craig Anderson finished with 25 saves in Saturday's 3-2 loss to the Hurricanes.
Analysis: He'd put up a couple of strong, one-goal-against wins leading into Saturday, so we'll excuse this one (we guess). The winner was a tough one -- it was scored on a deflection. But he wuffed on the tying goal and was caught swimming far outside his crease. His win-loss record isn't great (12-11-6), but his GAA (2.31) and save percentage (.929) heading into Saturday are among his best as a starter. The underlying fundamentals seem good; the team that plays around him isn't. And that will affect his fantasy value, depending on your format.

Sens' Anderson Gets The Call Saturday

News: Craig Anderson will be the starter in goal for Saturday's game against the Hurricanes, Wayne Scanlan of the Ottawa Citizen reports.
Analysis: It will mark the 400th career appearance for Craig Anderson, who has bounced back from a rough outing last week against the Avalanche to deliver two spectacular performances in a row, holding the Coyotes and Canadiens to a goal apiece in wins. With Anderson dialed in and the Hurricanes representing the league's second-lowest scoring attack, the Ottawa goalie makes for a fine play in daily formats.

Second Straight One-Goal Game For Sens' Anderson

News: Craig Anderson delivered his second consecutive one-goal outing Thursday, stopping 25 shots in a win over visiting Montreal.
Analysis: Another sharp game for Craig Anderson, who's been excellent in goal lately outside of a poor effort in Colorado last Thursday. He's 4-1-1 over his last six games and has given up more than two goals just the one time in that span.

Sens Turn To Anderson On Thursday

News: Craig Anderson will start Thursday's game against Montreal.
Analysis: Craig Anderson, who stopped 31-of-32 shots in Saturday's 5-1 win over Arizona, returns to the Ottawa net on Thursday after giving way to Robin Lehner in Tuesday's 5-4 loss to Dallas.

Sens' Anderson Stops 31 Pucks In Win

News: Craig Anderson made 31 saves Saturday in a 5-1 win over Arizona.
Analysis: The only shot that beat him was a perfect shot that went roof off the crossbar and in; he was also helped by his posts, but that just means he's both lucky and good. His GAA and save percentage are actually among his best as a starter, but he only has 11 wins on this middling squad. Use for the former, but don't necessarily expect the latter.

Sens' Anderson To Start Saturday

News: Craig Anderson will make the start in goal Saturday against the Coyotes.
Analysis: Craig Anderson will look to rebound from an ugly performance Thursday against the Avalanche in which he made just six saves on nine shots before being pulled in the second period. Anderson is 10-10-6 on the season with a 2.41 GAA and a .926 save percentage.
