With Marc Methot and Fredrik Claesson both sidelined with injuries, Englund was recalled and will play on Saturday vs. Florida. Englund has picked up five points (1G / 4A) in 18 games with Binghamton (AHL) this season.
Condon allowed three goals on 32 shots in the Canadiens’ loss to the Flyers on Thursday. With Anderson away from the team, Condon will go again tonight vs. the Panthers. Condon has gone 2-1-1 with a 2.20 GAA and .931 SV% in four games with the Senators.
The Senators have placed Fredrik Claesson (hip) on IR.
Claesson was injured in last night’s loss to the Flyers and was placed on IR this morning. Claesson was filling in for the injured Marc Methot, but now Andreas Englund has been recalled to fill that role.
The Senators have sent Max McCormick to Binghamton (AHL).
McCormick played just 5:35 TOI on Thursday and had no points while averaging 7:03 TOI in five games with the Senators. McCormick returns to Binghamton, where he has three goals and one assist in 13 games.
The Senators have recalled Andreas England from Binghamton (AHL).
England, 20, was a second round pick (40th overall) in 2014 and this is his first NHL call-up. England has picked up one goal and four assists (five points) in 18 games in his first season with Binghamton. He could make his NHL debut on Saturday.
The Senators have placed Bobby Ryan (hand) on IR; will miss at least the next two games.
Ryan reaggravated a hand injury on Tuesday and will miss at least Saturday’s and next Monday’s game before being eligible to return to the lineup Wednesday in San Jose. There’s no word on how long he will be sidelined.
Claesson will be in the Senators lineup on Thursday.
Claesson hasn’t played with the Senators since November 13th, but will play tonight with Marc Methot injured. Claesson has no points while averaging 11:45 TOI in six games this season, but he will skate with Erik Karlsson tonight, which means he could play bigger minutes.
Condon allowed five goals on 40 shots in the Senators’ loss to Nashville on November 17th. With Craig Anderson leaving the team again, Condon will start tonight vs. the Flyers. Condon has gone 2-1-0 with a 1.95 GAA, .939 SV% and one shutout in three starts since being acquired by the Senators.
Anderson has left the team for personal reasons; will not be available for Thursday’s game.
Anderson is expected to leave the team from time to time to be with his wife. Andrew Hammond was recalled on Tuesday and is expected to serve as Mike Condon’s backup on Thursday. There’s no word on when Anderson will return to the team.
Methot left Tuesday’s game with a lower-body injury and is listed as day-to-day.
Methot played for 15:22 TOI before exiting Tuesday’s game with a lower-body injury. Senators’ head coach Guy Boucher said after the game that Methot is day-to-day, which has him questionable for Thursday’s game.
Ryan left Tuesday’s game with a hand injury; will not play on Thursday.
Ryan missed two games with a hand injury before returning for the last four—Ryan re-aggravated the injury on Tuesday and will miss at least one game. It sounds like Ryan will miss some time, but monitor his status after Thursday’s game. Until then, consider him as day-to-day.
Anderson stopped all 33 shots that he faced in the Senators’ shutout win in New York on Sunday. Anderson is expected to leave the team again soon, but not before tonight’s game vs. the Sabres. Anderson has won his las seven starts while posting a 1.25 GAA, .960 SV% and one shutout. He will face a Buffalo team that has lost eight of their last 10 (2-4-4).
The Senators have recalled Andrew Hammond from Binghamton (AHL).
Hammond has gone 0-2-0 with a 2.56 GAA and .907 SV% in two starts with Binghamton since being sent down, but rejoins the team because Craig Anderson is expected to leave the team again and be with his wife.
