OTTAWA - The Ottawa Senators (@Senators) today recalled goaltender Chris Driedger on an emergency basis from the club's American Hockey League affiliate, the Binghamton Senators, to replace Craig Anderson.
"With the support of the entire organization, we've provided Craig with a leave of absence so that he can attend to a personal matter at home," said Senators general manager, Pierre Dorion. "While we are uncertain of how long Craig may be away, he will continue to have our support for as much time as is needed. We will respect his privacy and will have no further comment at this time."
Driedger, 22, has a 1-0-1 record with a 0.96 goals-against-average and .961 save percentage in two games with the B-Sens this season.
