• Lower-Body Injury For Sens' Lawson

    News: Nathan Lawson is day-to-day with a lower-body injury, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.
    Analysis: Should Nathan Lawson's injury prevent him from backing up Robin Lehner on Thursday vs. the Lightning, the Senators could move to recall another goalie from their roster. The Senators will likely already be without the services of Craig Anderson (undisclosed) Thursday, leaving the team painfully short on healthy goalies at the moment.
  • Sens' Lawson Suffers Injury Tuesday

    News: After Nathan Lawson came on to relieve Robin Lehner in Tuesday's game against the Rangers, Lehner later reentered the contest in the third period, suggesting Lawson sustained some sort of injury, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports.
    Analysis: Nathan Lawson headed to the dressing room immediately after being pulled in the third period. He surrendered two goals on 10 shots in just under 12 minutes of ice time. The Senators should provide further word on his condition after the game, but Lawson's injury certainly puts the team in a bind with Craig Anderson also day-to-day with an ailment of his own.

  • Senators' Lawson Recalled From AHL

    News: Nathan Lawson was recalled from AHL Binghamton on an emergency basis Monday.
    Analysis: Craig Anderson is day-to-day with a neck injury, prompting the Senators to recall Nathan Lawson. Assuming Anderson's injury doesn't linger, Lawson will only be around for a game or two, and doesn't figure to earn a start.
  • Sens Extend Lawson

    News: The Senators re-signed Nathan Lawson with a one-year, two-way contract Wednesday.

Robert Mayer filled in for Lawson, but was ineffective, giving up five goals in 24 shots.
