Craig Anderson - Hand Injury - Update: Mar. 22nd Cleared to Play

REVISED:

According to Sens Chirp:

Hearing talk about how "Anderson may have suffered an injury".

To be officially confirmed.

Currently rumored to be a severe cut on his hand involving a kitchen knife and some frozen chicken (Maple Leaf Prime)?

Original source: HF Poster Pancakes Pancakes, subsequently picked up by Sens Chirp (either dependently or independently)

Unless the Sens are keeping it under wraps because they plan on trading for a goalie and don't want to lower their bargaining position.
CONFIRMED:

According to Bruce Garrioch:


"Can confirm report by @Realkyper that Craig Anderson has suffered a hand injury. How long he's going to be out hasn't been determined."

Column: http://www.ottawasun.com/2012/02/23/...-recall-lehner

"at least 10 days"

According to Nick Kypreos:

"Home accident has left C. Anderson with cut to hand. How badly is still a question mark but he's expected to miss next few gms"

According to Team1200:

"deep cut. 4-6 weeks"

TSN Story:

UPDATE:

Quote:
“We were told (Thursday) it was going to be some period of time. (Friday) we got a little better news. As soon as he feels comfortably he can handle a stick, he’ll be back on the ice, probably as early as next week,” said Murray.

“When he can handle a stick, he can probably get ready to play. There’s no time frame. We’re optimistic that it won’t be a long, long time.”

Anderson has been steady but he hasn't been anythign special the last month. As Anderson goes, the team goes. Will him being out hur the Sens? It might. Who's to say Lehner doesn't come in and play well as the starter?

The only crappy part is going into the playoffs Anderson is going to be rusty. Perhaps from this point on if the reports of 6 weeks are true that Lehner becomes the #1 in Ottawa.

There's no source, wtf. Chirp says he's "hearing talk".

Also says there's talk on HF but we're quoting him so...

Call up Lehner for the rest of the year or rent a goalie at the deadline?

There is no need to panic even if it is true. The Sens are a good enough team to win games with Anderson, Auld, or Lehner. Lehner will get the games and truth of the matter is he has been close to NHL for sometime now. He will get his shot.

No pancakes or waffles involved as of this time.

Brutal twist for the #Sens if the injury to Craig Anderson is as bad as some are speculating. Have to wait for official word from the team.


SensChirp must be reading your posts!!!!!!

Nice revision as well, from six weeks to your added rumour.

Lucky for us the deadline hasn't passed. We could still rent a goalie.

I wanted a goalie before today (although not to replace Andy, just to give him some rest), so clearly I'm on the "trade" side of the fence.

If the org decides to roll with Lehner, so be it, but I worry that if Lehner experiences any rookie struggles and Auld continues to suck, we'll have missed our window with the trade deadline almost at our doorstep.

Umm...4-0-0, 1.00 GAA and a .970 save percentage isn't anything special?

No offense, but the team plays the way it does because it has confidence in Anderson. Plus he stickhandles like a mofo.

Sorry, Anderson is a HUGE loss. Lehner may or may not pan out but we have to remember that he's been struggling in Bingo.
