Craig Anderson has a hand injury that will probably keep him out of the lineup against Dallas on Thursday.

Andrew Hammond is up with Ottawa on an emergency recall and Robin Lehner will get the nod when the Senators host the Stars. Consider Anderson day-to-day for now.

Ottawa goalie Craig Anderson entered the all-star break in solid fashion, kicking aside 37 shots in the Senators' 4-3 triumph Wednesday night over the visiting Toronto Maple Leafs.

Playing in his second game in two nights, Anderson improved to 13-11-7 against the lowly Leafs and prevented himself from going into the break with a .500 record. His goals-against average is 2.37 and his save percentage, .927. As a fantasy option, Anderson has been relatively productive. Because he's with the Sens, who have been less than spectacular this season, he is by no means a must-keep goalie. Don't hesitate to find another goalie if you can for the second half. If you can't, don't sweat it. There are many worse netminding options in the NHL than Anderson.

Craig Anderson will be back in net again Wednesday against the Maple Leafs.

Anderson just started Tuesday night making 32 saves in a 3-2 overtime loss to the Rangers, but Senators head coach Dave Cameron has confirmed Anderson will be back at it again Wednesday night against Toronto. The veteran goaltender has appeared in 30 games this season, posting a 12-11-7 record, 2.35 goals-against-average, and .927 save percentage. He has yet to face the Leafs in the 2014-2015 season.

Craig Anderson did his best to keep the Senators in Tuesday's contest with the Rangers, but they ultimately fell by a score of 3-2 in overtime.

Anderson was beaten for three goals on 35 shots in the defeat, but he can hardly be blamed for the result. His record falls to 12-11-7 with the loss while his GAA is 2.35 and his save percentage is .927.

Craig Anderson will get the nod for Ottawa on Tuesday night versus the New York Rangers.

Senators GM Bryan Murray was a guest on TSN 1200 Monday morning and he told the radio station that Anderson was "unlikely" to be traded. "Why would I do that at this point? We don't have a third goaltender," Murray said. "Robin (Lehner) is close to being ready (to be a No. 1 goaltender), but he needs to play more games. If you don't have goaltending in this league, you don't have anything. It's unlikely Craig Anderson is going anywhere, but into the net in Ottawa." Anderson has a superb .927 save percentage and a 2.33 GAA in 29 games this season. Unfortunately, he has posted a 12-11-6 record.

Craig Anderson stopped 25 of 28 shots in Ottawa’s 3-2 loss to the Hurricanes on Saturday night.

Anderson has won twice in his last five outings, but he still sports a solid 2.33 goals-against average and .927 save percentage. He should remain a pretty solid bet moving forward, but the wins upside is a bit limited.
Jan 17 - 10:34 PM

Craig Anderson will face the Carolina Hurricanes on Saturday night.

Anderson comes in with a 12-10-6 record through 25 starts and 28 games, and owns a .929 save percentage and a 2.30 GAA with three shutouts this season. In his nine career games against Carolina while with Ottawa, he owns a 4-2-3 record with 16 goals against. To wit, the Canes were just shutout by Ryan Miller and the Canucks on Friday night. So start Anderson with confidence.

Look for the Senators to really lean on Craig Anderson while they still have a shot at a playoff spot.

Ottawa coach Dave Cameron hinted that Anderson will get the vast majority of the Sens' starts as long as the club is in playoff contention. If you need a goalie who has some talent and will get a chance to display it over the next month or two, Anderson could be a worthy target.
Jan 17 - 11:22 AM

Craig Anderson will get the start Saturday night against the Hurricanes.

Anderson has been hot again winning his last two starts while only allowing a goal in each game. Make sure he is active against an offensively-challenged Carolina squad.
Jan 17 - 11:18 AM

Craig Anderson made 25 saves on 26 shots in Thursday night's 4-1 victory over the Montreal Canadiens.

Anderson was stellar for the second straight time as he helped the struggling Sens beat a very good Canadiens team. Anderson improves to 12-10-6 this season with a .929 save percentage and 2.30 goals against average.
Jan 15 - 11:42 PM

Craig Anderson will start Thursday's game against Montreal.

The 33-year-old is 3-1-2 in his last six starts. Anderson has a 2.35 goals-against-average and a .928 save percentage for the Senators this season. His fantasy upside will continue to be limited if he keeps splitting starts with Robin Lehner.
Jan 15 - 6:40 PM

Craig Anderson isn't concerned about the possibility of being traded.

"They (the Senators) kind of revived my career after a tough year, they put some faith in me," Anderson said. "The ball's in their court. All I can do is go play hockey. If something fits their needs where I don't belong in their plans, then so be it. But I don't want to even talk about it like that because there's been no speculation at all." He feels he has some security after signing a three-year extension in the summer. His deal does not have a no-trade clause, but he doesn't regret that decision.
Jan 15 - 5:25 PM

Craig Anderson made 31 saves in Ottawa’s 5-1 win over the Coyotes on Saturday night.

The only blemish against Anderson came 4:31 into the game for the tilt’s first goal. Anderson is 3-1-1 over his last five games and continues to post very strong ratios: 2.35 goals-against average and a .928 save percentage.
Jan 10 - 10:28 PM

Look for Craig Anderson to redeem himself against the Coyotes Saturday night.

Anderson will be looking a double redemption. One, for the way he played against the Avalanche Thursday night (allowed three goals on nine shots and was pulled) and one for the way he has played against the Coyotes in his career (3-8-0 in 11 starts). We've got a feeling Anderson will succeed Saturday night so we highly recommend him.
