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

He seemed to thrive on his own and didn't really need any push from me. I certainly don't want to get in the way of the coaches. You see how that goes sometimes. I never really worried about it and just enjoyed the ride.
