OTTAWA - Ottawa Senators general manager Bryan Murray announced today the club has agreed to terms with goaltender Craig Anderson on a three-year contract extension which will run through the end of the 2017-18 National Hockey League season. The average annual value of the contract is $4.2 million ($4.75M, $4.75M, $3.1M).

Anderson, 33, went 25-16-8 in 53 games with the Senators last season, posting a 3.00 goals-against-average and a .911 save percentage, while recording four shutouts. He was originally acquired by the Senators from the Colorado Avalanche on Feb. 18, 2011, in exchange for Brian Elliott. He signed a four-year contract extension with the Senators on March 21, 2011.

Anderson has played in 158 career regular-season games with Ottawa, posting a 81-52-17 record with a 2.62 goals-against-average and 12 shutouts. In 17 playoff games with the Senators, he has posted eight wins, eight losses, a 2.59 goals-against-average, a .923 save percentage and one shutout.

The 12-year NHL veteran has played 371 regular-season games, earning 168 wins, 135 losses, 38 overtime losses and 26 shutouts, to go along with a 2.75 career goals-against average and .915 save percentage. Anderson has played with the Chicago Blackhawks, Florida Panthers and Colorado.

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.
