  • Senators lose Anderson to injury

    Pro Hockey Talk "The Ottawa Senators grabbed a “charity point” and probably gained a little bit of confidence from Tuesday’s game, but it may prove to be a costly night.

  • If Anderson is available, should the Oilers be interested?

    Pro Hockey Talk "If the Ottawa Senators re-sign goalie Andrew Hammond — and it sounds like they intend to try — they’ll need to trade one of Craig Anderson or Robin Lehner. If they decide to trade Anderson, should the Oilers be interested? There’s no easy answer to that question, because there’s no..." May 11

  • Expect Senators netminder Craig Anderson to get the call

    Ottawa Sun "Dave Cameron didn't answer the burning question Tuesday.

It wouldn't make sense to..." April 22

  • Senators' Anderson out after aggravating hand injury "Ottawa Senators goaltender Craig Anderson has aggravated a previous hand injury and will be unavailable for their game Tuesday against the Carolina Hurricanes, the Senators announced.

    TSN "The Ottawa Senators might be 10 points out of a playoff spot, but Bryan Murray is making it crystal clear that he’s not interested in trading his No. 1 goaltender anytime soon.

  • Now is time for Ottawa Senators to trade Andy

    Ottawa Sun "The list of teams looking for a No. 1 goalie this summer will be short, but if the Senators can somehow find the right match they really should deal Craig Anderson.

  • Senators' aching Andy still not ready

    Ottawa Sun "Recovering from a shoulder issue, Craig Anderson could have stayed home Wednesday night. Instead, he showed what kind of a teammate he is by standing beside the bench and supporting his fellow Senators in the skills competition. That, however, could be as close as Anderson gets to the ice for..." March 14

  • Craig Anderson not happy about P.K. Subban's OT goal celebration

    CBC Sports "P.K. Subban is often a lightning-rod for controversy and it's often for reasons that are completely groan-worthy.

  • Lehner pushing Anderson for top job

  • Will Senators goalie Craig Anderson Continue to Dominate?

    Silver Seven "No and that's ok. Craig Anderson's 2012-13 season was historic; he finished the year with a record-setting .941 save percentage besting the mark established by former Senators goalie Brian Elliott the previous season (.940 SV%). If not for an unfortunate ankle sprain which kept Anderson out of..." September 29

  • Senators goaltender Craig Anderson wins first career NHL playoff series in convincing fashion

    Ottawa Sun "A hero is born every minute in the playoffs. And, now the questions about Craig Anderson can finally be put to rest for good.

  • Three’s Company in the Ottawa Senators net

    Ottawa Citizen "Apparently, nobody bothered to tell the Ottawa Senators that the three goaltending system isn’t supposed to work. Here we are, 9 ½ weeks into the NHL season and the Senators’ three-headed monster (at least in the minds of frustrated opposition shooters) is leading the league in goals against..." March 27

    Anderson hasn't responded. He will stay off the ice.

  • Sens star Craig Anderson limping around

    Ottawa Sun "Craig Anderson limped into Scotiabank Place with Senators GM Bryan Murray Friday morning. That was the only good sign for the Senators.

  • Senators lose star goalie Anderson but win game

    Ottawa Citizen "As Ottawa Senators goaltender Craig Anderson lay on the ice outside the crease, defenceman Marc Methot was staring in disbelief.

  • Silver Nuggets: I like Craig Anderson

    Silver Seven "In last night's GDT, user KnockSomeSensIntoYou made one of those simple points that often get overlooked: Seriously, can we talk about how great Andy has been playing.

  • Ottawa Senators goaltender Craig Anderson off to great start this season

    Ottawa Sun "As Saturday's practice wound down, Daniel Alfredsson took part in a different version of 'keep away' along one of the Bell Centre blue lines.

  • Craig Anderson named NHL's first star for January

    Ottawa Citizen "Senators goaltender Craig Anderson is off to a fast start this season, and Friday the NHL named him its first star for January.

  • Anderson up for challenge of matching Lundqvist

    Ottawa Sun "Craig Anderson has been here before. The goaltender got his first taste of the NHL playoffs in 2010, backstopping the No.8-seeded Colorado Avalanche against the heavily-favoured Sharks.

  • Andy's on playoff mission

    Ottawa Sun "Can Craig Anderson handle the pressure?

  • Anderson: Karlsson should be lock for Norris

    Ottawa Sun "Erik Karlsson has heard the debate. In fact, he hasn't been able to avoid the noise.

April 05

  • Anderson a cut above for Sens

Backup goalie Ben Bishop..." March 26

  • Anderson won't explain bizarre cut

    Ottawa Sun "If there still exists any suspicions over how exactly the right-handed Craig Anderson sliced a tendon in his right hand, the Senators' No. 1 goalie did nothing to squelch them when facing the media for the first time one week after the incident. "I really don't care to talk about the details of..." March 02

  • Anderson cuts hand making dinner, out indefinitely

    Ottawa Citizen "Maybe Craig Anderson should have just gone out for dinner after the game. Certainly Ottawa Senators general manager Bryan Murray must be wishing he did.

  • Doing the goalie shuffle

    Ottawa Citizen "To coincide with Tuesday's birthday of Charles Dickens, this is A Tale of Two Cities, or at least, two goaltending situations.

  • Coach ponders: Auld or Anderson vs. Blues?

    Ottawa Sun "Craig Anderson could finally get a break from the Ottawa Senators net.

February 06

  • Auld to keep warming bench

    Ottawa Sun "It was the closest Alex Auld has come to starting a Senators game in more than a month. Asked Thursday which of his goalies would work the crease against the Islanders, coach Paul MacLean actually hesitated before announcing that it would be Craig Anderson. Why the slight delay? "I was..." February 03

  • Anderson steals another one for Senators

    Ottawa Citizen "They're leading charmed lives, these pesky Ottawa Senators.

  • Anderson stars on Broadway

    Ottawa Sun "Craig Anderson won't be at the NHL's all-star weekend at Scotiabank Place, but he sure played like a star on Broadway Thursday night.

  • Unsung Anderson leads Senators to victory

    Ottawa Citizen "Craig Anderson ranks way back of the NHL goaltending pack in a number of categories, but his 19 wins are tied for second in the league.

  • Anderson or Auld Friday? Time to step up

    Ottawa Sun "Red seems to bring out the best in the Senators — both the jersey colour and when they're red-faced with embarrassment. As a team, they have responded well to shellackings like the 6-2 browbeating delivered by the Montreal Canadiens Tuesday. In the six games the Senators have played following..." December 30

  • Raggedy Andy

    Ottawa Citizen "History shows that Ottawa Senators goaltender Craig Anderson will have to be much better for the team to make the National Hockey League playoffs. In the past five seasons, only one NHL team - the 2006-07 Tampa Bay Lightning - has made the postseason when its No. 1 goaltender had a save..." December 30

  • Sens' Anderson needs more help

    Ottawa Sun "Craig Anderson can't do it by himself. If the Senators are going to have a realistic shot at making the playoffs, they'd better hope the veteran goaltender and the rest of the players can find some help because they're on the outside looking in at the NHL's playoff picture at the moment. The..." December 16

  • Sens goalie's got retro mask appeal

  • Anderson provides key saves, chutzpah

    Ottawa Citizen "It could be giant Zdeno Chara, mouth agape, with Lord Stanley's chalice in his mighty hands. Or, a defeated team sitting on the ice, players backs to the boards, heads slumped so low that faces can't be seen. From my view, the lasting image from the Senators' late season turnaround — the seeds..." November 23

  • Andy's dandy in Sens win

    Ottawa Sun "Craig Anderson held the Senators in the game early, then won it for them late Tuesday at RBC Center. In between, the young Senators learned a lesson: To beat the Hurricanes, they discovered, it's imperative to play a full 60 minutes. A 3-2 shootout decision gave the Senators their third win..."
