Bulletin: Senators sign goaltender Craig Anderson to a 4-year contract extension
OTTAWA – Ottawa Senators general manager Bryan Murray announced today the club has extended goaltender Craig Anderson’s contract by four years, through the 2014-15 season.

Anderson, 29, was acquired by the Senators from the Colorado Avalanche on Feb. 18 in exchange for Brian Elliott. In 11 games since joining Ottawa, he has posted a 6-4-0 record with one shutout, a 2.11 goals-against average and .938 save percentage.

“Goaltending is and will be one of the important building blocks consistent with our plan to improve the team moving forward,” said general manager Bryan Murray. “Craig has provided a level of confidence to this team and this organization that was lacking early in the season, and we feel he is the type of person and player that will be a big part of our organization’s future success.”

The eight-year National Hockey League veteran has played 224 regular-season games, earning 93 wins, 87 losses, 19 overtime losses and 14 in shootouts, along with a 2.81 career goals-against average and.912 save percentage. Anderson has played with the Chicago Blackhawks, Florida Panthers and last two seasons with the Avalanche.

The native of Park Ridge, Ill., was Chicago’s third-round pick (73rd overall) in the 2001 NHL Entry Draft. He signed as a free agent with the Avalanche on July 1, 2009.

The Senators next see action Tuesday evening when they visit the Carolina Hurricanes at 7 p.m.
