Ottawa sends Gerber to the AHL for a two week conditioning stint
The Ottawa Senators announced Thursday that goaltender Martin Gerber has been send down to the AHL's Binghamton Senators on a two-week conditioning assignment.
Gerber, 34, has a 4-9-1 record with a 2.86 goals-against average and .899 save-percentage in 14 games this season. He was a healthy scratch in Ottawa's 5-1 win over the Carolina Hurricanes on Tuesday and Wednesday's 3-2 win over the Thrashers in Atlanta.
He last saw action in a 6-4 loss to the Bruins in Boston on Jan. 8.
In 100 games with Ottawa, Gerber is 49-36-8 with a.907 save-percentage and a 2.76 goals-against average. In 214 career NHL games, he has a 104-73-7-14 record with a .910 save-percentage and 2.61 goals-against average.
Having an Ottawa goalie is the lynch pin of any good fantasy hockey team.
I know. I've been there.

Talk about a kick in the fruit basket.
I feel a little bad for Sanford, but not much. At least when Wade was given the opportunity to play several games in a row he looked good. Every time Sanford gets a chance to be 'the guy' he looks average (at best).
Now's the time to accept the inevitable: Curtis Sanford is a back-up goalie.
