Craig Anderson has been selected as the Ottawa Senators' nominee for the Masterton Trophy.

The Masterton Trophy honors the player who best exemplifies perseverance, sportsmanship and dedication to hockey. This has been a very difficult season for Anderson and his family as his wife, Nicholle, was diagnosed with throat cancer. Anderson left the team to be with her, but later rejoined the Senators at her urging on Oct. 30. He later took another two months of leave to be with her during her treatment before returning to the team again in March. Despite how difficult this has to be for him, when Anderson has played he's been outstanding with a 2.32 GAA and .927 save percentage in 34 starts.

Ottawa Senators top prospect Colin White has signed an amateur tryout with the Binghamton Senators.

White will join the "Baby Sens" immediately and that's where he'll stay for the rest of the 2016-17 season. He's heading to the AHL because Ottawa isn't willing to burn the first year of his entry-level contract. "We are excited to see Colin make the next step in his development in turning professional after a great college career," Sens GM Pierre Dorion said in a release. "We have spoken to Colin and his advisors at length and we are all in agreement that getting him on the ice to play games in the AHL is what is best for his growth at this moment. While our ongoing contract discussions are moving in a positive direction, we all know there is a small window left this season for Colin to gain professional experience." The 20-year-old was Ottawa's first round pick, 21st overall, in 2015. He scored 16 goals and 17 assists in 35 games at Boston College this season. White has a bright future ahead of him.

The Senators are hopeful that Viktor Stalberg (upper-body injury) will play on the team's upcoming road trip.

The Sens travel to Philadelphia for a game Tuesday, the first contest of a four-game road trip. Check back with us later on Tuesday as to Stalberg's status.

Craig Anderson played in his 500th NHL game Saturday night.

That's quite an accomplishment for a goalie. However, Anderson was obviously not happy with the results as the Sens lost to the Canadiens 3-1, their third loss in eight days to the Montreal squad.
Mar 26 - 10:51 AM

Fredrik Claesson did indeed play alongside Erik Karlsson Saturday night against Montreal.

He was subbing in for the injured Marc Methot after being a healthy scratch for the Senators' last four games. Claesson has played well in spot starts this season. That said, his highest point total in three AHL seasons is 29. He is not a fantasy asset at this time.

Craig Anderson gave up three goals on 24 shots Saturday night as the Canadiens lost 3-1.

This is only the sixth time in 34 games that Anderson recorded a save percentage of .875 or worse, so fantasy players might not want to panic just yet. In three of these poor performances he gave up four or more goals.
Mar 26 - 12:45 AM

Jean-Gabriel Pageau scored the only Senators goal in a 3-1 loss to the Canadiens Saturday night.

Pageau’s goal came just past the midway point of the second period when the Senators still had a chance to rally from the 3-1 deficit. Both goalies became stingy at that point, however, and would not let another puck get past. This goal gave Pageau double digits in that regard with 29 total points for the season.
Mar 26 - 12:36 AM

Craig Anderson is projected to start on Saturday.

Anderson got Thursday's game off. He has a 22-9-2 record, 2.29 GAA, and .928 save percentage in 33 contests this season.
Mar 25 - 5:30 PM

Viktor Stalberg sustained an upper-body injury.

Stalberg will miss Saturday's game as a result. He has 11 goals and 15 points in 69 games this season.
Mar 25 - 5:29 PM

Mark Stone (lower body) will be back in the Senators' lineup Saturday.

Stone's return unfortunately corresponds with Viktor Stalberg leaving the lineup due to an upper-body injury. Stone has 22 goals and 50 points in 63 games this season. He missed seven straight contests.
Mar 25 - 5:28 PM

Fredrik Claesson could get a chance to play with Erik Karlsson on Saturday night.

Karlsson's regular defense partner, Marc Methot, suffered a finger injury against Pittsburgh on Thursday night and he'll be out for the next few weeks. So it'll be up to Claesson to fill his shoes. Claesson has two goals and seven assists in 24 games this season. Ottawa will take on Montreal in a huge Atlantic Division clash at the Bell Center.
Mar 25 - 11:37 AM

Marc Methot is expected to be sidelined for weeks after his finger received a brutal slash from Pittsburgh's Sidney Crosby on Thursday night.

"His finger is shattered and he's out for weeks," coach Guy Boucher said after the game. We'll keep you posted on his status.

The Ottawa Senators and Colorado Avalanche will play two games at the Globen Arena in Stockholm, Sweden next season.

The two NHL squads will play back-to-back games on Nov. 10 and Nov. 11. "Like Canada, Sweden is a great hockey nation. The Ottawa Senators are proud of our rich history in drafting accomplished Swedish players including two of our hockey club's greatest captains, Erik Karlsson and Daniel Alfredsson," said owner Eugene Melnyk in a statement. "Our return to Stockholm, Sweden is a truly unique opportunity to showcase the Senators and NHL brands to a larger worldwide audience." It's believed that both teams will head overseas a couple of days early and will have a break when they return.

Mike Condon turned in another strong performance in Thursday's 2-1 shootout win over the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Condon turned aside 34 of 35 shots in tonight's contest. Pittsburgh's only goal, which was scored by Nick Bonino, came while the Sens were shorthanded. Condon saved his best stop for the overtime period, as he made a ridiculous stick save on Chris Kunitz at the midway point of the extra frame. Condon now has a 19-12-6 record with a 2.45 goals-against-average and a .916 save percentage. His fantasy upside is limited by the presence of Craig Anderson, but we still can't deny that Condon's been a pleasant surprise this season.
