Date: Team: Pos:

Senators coach Guy Boucher indicated that Mike Condon will play a full game and half a game in the next two preseason contests.

The other half game will be for Andrew Hammond. Condon broke out last season for the Senators, picking up 19 wins and five shutouts along the way. The Senators will likely continue to split regular starts between Anderson and Condon, with Anderson getting the majority. Condon will have fantasy upside if Anderson were to miss any time.

Ryan Dzingel, who is recovering from a groin muscle injury, is skating but won't play untl the Senators' final two pre-season games.

The speedy winger will not suit up for games Saturday and Monday in PEI but should be good to go for games in the latter part of next week.

Erik Karlsson looked very good in his first skate of training camp Saturday morning.

Karlsson, who is recovering from surgery to repair tendons in his foot, could be ready to start the season on time. Initially, the prognosis was that the superstar defenseman would miss a few weeks. Stay tuned for further updates.

Craig Anderson may play a full preseason game on Saturday night.

The Senators are hosting the Montreal Canadiens, and head coach Guy Boucher said Anderson can play all 60 minutes in the game. Anderson had a 25-11-4 record with a 2.28 goals-against-average and a .926 save percentage last season. The 36-year-old will have plenty of fantasy value this season. He'll be a solid number one goalie option in standard fantasy leagues.

Derick Brassard (shoulder) is ahead of schedule, per Senators coach Guy Boucher.

Brassard might be able to play in the Senators' season opener, but that's far from certain. He needs to be given full clearance by his surgeon first. He had 14 goals and 39 points in 81 contests last season.
Sep 22 - 4:13 PM

Christopher DiDomenico has been waived by the Ottawa Senators.

DiDomenico had no points in three games with Ottawa last season. He spent most of the season in the Swiss league where he scored 10 goals and 38 points in 48 contests.

Coach Guy Boucher doesn't expect to have Erik Karlsson (foot) in the lineup at the start of the season.

Karlsson hasn't resumed skating yet. "I just told them to tell me when he's going to be ready for a real practice," coach Guy Boucher said Thursday. "Before that, to be honest with you, I don't know. I don't know when he's planning to skate but at some point he will go on. I'm pretty sure it won't be in three weeks, but when? Let's wait and see when he's able to skate for real. If he's skating, just to go on and put some skates on, that’s not really the interest right now for me. Anything that's positive for Erik would be great but at the same time I don't want to get too ahead of myself and hope he's back in a week. I'm expecting a long process — anything in between is a bonus."

Kyle Turris will get another exhibition game off Saturday, but he is slated to play in all three matches next week to prepare for the regular season.

"He'll play the last three. I've got too many centers to watch right now," said coach Guy Boucher. "At first, I thought we'd play him Saturday, but you know what? I've got too many guys. When you put together a lineup, you want to see the young guys and you want your guys to be ready. We're juggling. Saturday is a big one for the new guys and young guys to see what they've got." Ottawa isn't expected to have Derick Brassard and Colin White for the beginning of the season, so getting looks at other players is important and so is protecting the health of Turris.
Sep 22 - 8:29 AM

Ryan Dzingel (groin) participated in Thursday's practice.

Dzingel has missed the team's first two preseason games with a groin injury, but he could see some game action next week. The ailment won't impact his position on the team, as he is expected to occupy a top-six forward spot on the Senators this year. "I know what he is. He's so in shape and he's so fast that the last two games and practice will be enough for him to get ready for the season," coach Guy Boucher said. "It will open up some spots for me to see some other guys."
Sep 22 - 8:23 AM

Logan Brown is in the hunt for a roster spot with Ottawa for the start of the 2017-18 season.

Injuries to Derick Brassard and Colin White have opened the door for Brown and Filip Chlapik to compete for lineup positions on opening night. Brown played well in Tuesday's preseason win over Toronto and he was rewarded with a power-play goal in the contest.
Sep 20 - 10:48 AM

Fredrik Claesson won a goal and an assist in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs.

The 24-year-old has played a part-time role with the Senators over the last two seasons, but he'll hope to become a regular on Ottawa's blue line this season. Claesson had three goals, eight assists and a plus-5 rating in 33 NHL games last season.
Sep 19 - 10:28 PM

Colin White will be out of action for six-to-eight weeks after he suffered a broken left wrist on Monday night.

White was hurt blocking a shot in preseason action against Toronto and he underwent surgery Tuesday morning. He is slated to skate during his recovery to maintain his conditioning. It was expected that White would be able to claim a roster spot out of training camp because of Derick Brassard's shoulder injury, but now he'll miss the start of the regular season.
Sep 19 - 12:34 PM

Parker Kelly has signed a three-year, entry-level contract with the Ottawa Senators.

The undrafted forward attended Ottawa's rookie camp and the team's main training camp on an amateur tryout. Kelly produced 21 goals, 43 points and 75 penalty minutes in 72 games for the WHL's Prince Albert Raiders last season.
Sep 19 - 11:43 AM

Mark Stone amassed three points (one goal, two assists) in Monday's 6-2 preseason win over Toronto.

"These games are important for us to get back into memorizing the system," Stone said. "I thought it was a good start. The young guys played well, and the older guys showed glimpses of last year." He accounted for 22 goals and 54 points in 71 games last season.
Sep 19 - 10:40 AM

Colin White appeared to be injured when he took a shot off his arm in Monday's preseason match against Toronto.

He left the ice favoring his left arm and it looked like he was still in pain after the game. "We've got to wait," coach Guy Boucher said. "I'm sure it hurt a lot. Wait until the swelling is down and see where it's at."
