Senators sign goaltender Nathan Lawson to a one-year, two-way contract

OTTAWA - The Ottawa Senators have signed goaltender Nathan Lawson to a one-year, two-way contract, the club announced Monday.

Lawson spent the 2011-12 season with the Hamilton Bulldogs, the American Hockey League affiliate of the Montreal Canadiens. He had a 19-17-4 record, a 2.57 goals-against average, a .914 save percentage and five shutouts.

The six-foot-two, 190-pound Calgary native has played in four professional seasons, including 10 NHL games with the New York Islanders. Undrafted, he played three seasons with the University of Alaska-Anchorage Seawolves before being signed by the Islanders.

Lawson will provide goaltending depth to an Ottawa team already boasting Craig Anderson, Ben Bishop and Robin Lehner.

Quote of the Day

There's no discouragement in that room. There's no issues there at all to be honest with you. It's more about, 'Hey, it's opportunities for players.' And if we become that bad of a team because of one player, it's not a real good sign for our hockey club. So this is part of sports. It's part of hockey.
