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.

It's always a little bit weird, but it moves on. They've got a good team, and they played well tonight. I think that's just part of it.
