Ryan (hand) has been activated from IR; could return to the lineup on Wednesday.
Ryan has missed the last three games with a hand injury, but has been activated from IR and should play tonight in San Jose. Ryan has had a tough first quarter, picking up just eight points (3G / 5A) in 21 games this season.
Condon stopped all 24 shots that he faced in the Senators’ shutout win over the Panthers on Saturday. Condon has stopped 55 of the last 58 shots (.948 SV%) and he will take over as the Senators’ No.1 with Craig Anderson not travelling out west. He draws a tough matchup vs. a Sharks team that has won six of their last seven.
The Senators have recalled Phil Varone from Binghamton (AHL).
Curtis Lazar was injured in Monday’s loss and will not travel out west with the team, so Varone has been recalled and will go with the team. Varone has no points in three games with Ottawa this season, but has picked up five goals and eight assists (13 points) in 18 games with Binghamton.
Anderson (personal) will not travel to San Jose with the team.
Anderson continues to leave the team to be with his wife and this time he leaves after playing just one game—he allowed seven goals on 43 shots in an 8-5 loss in Pittsburgh last night. The Senators will continue to lean on Mike Condon as their starter and have recalled Andrew Hammond from Binghamton (AHL) to be their backup.
Lazar (undisclosed) will not travel with the team to San Jose.
Lazar left Monday’s game with an undisclosed injury and did not return and will head to Ottawa to undergo further evaluation. With Lazar out, the Senators recalled Phil Varone to take his place on the Senators’ west coast road trip.
Anderson allowed five goals on 28 shots in the Senators loss to the Sabres last Tuesday. After the game, he left the team for the rest of the week, but returns to the crease tonight in Pittsburgh. Anderson comes into play tied for sixth in wins (12), tied for seventh in SV% (.930) and tied for 13th in GAA (2.20). He’ll take on a Penguins team that has won three of four.
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.
