The Ottawa Senators are gearing up to bid farewell to the majority ownership of the Melnyk family, as they hand over the reins of the organization to Micheal Andlauer. Amidst these changes, the team has decided to re-sign former fan-favorite goalie Craig Anderson.

Anderson was widely regarded as the backbone of the organization during his nearly decade-long tenure with the Senators. He provided exceptional goaltending that the team had grown accustomed to. The team will be re-signing him through a one-day contract, allowing the 42-year-old to retire as a Senator.


Throughout his career, Anderson had the opportunity to play for six NHL organizations: the Blackhawks, Avalanche, Sabres, Senators, Capitals, and the Panthers. His lengthiest tenure was with the Sens, spanning from 2010 to 2020. Over this period, he participated in 669 games, amassing a record of 319 wins, 271 losses, and 72 ties, while maintaining a goals-against average of 2.86 and an impressive save percentage of .912.


As Mr. Anderson embarks on this new chapter in his life, we extend our best wishes to him.
