Nilsson (concussion) has yet to fully recover and continues to suffer from concussion symptoms, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports. As a result of Nilsson's continued concussion problems, general manager Pierre Dorian told reporters the Senators would be looking for veteran goalie help either via trade of free agency. In 20 appearances for Ottawa last year, the 29-year-old netminder went 9-9-2 with a career-worst 3.18 GAA. Combined with his health concerns, it shouldn't come as a shock to see Ottawa pursuing other options between the pipes.
General manager Pierre Dorion expects Nilsson (concussion) to be ready when the 2020-21 campaign gets underway, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports. Nilsson missed the second half of the 2019-20 campaign due to a concussion, but he passed baseline testing in mid-April, and it sounds like he'll be back to 100 percent whenever next season begins. Craig Anderson won't be re-signing with the Senators, which means Nilsson will battle Marcus Hogberg for Ottawa's starting job during training camp. The 30-year-old backstop posted a 9-9-2 record while registering a 3.18 GAA and .908 save percentage in 20 appearances last campaign.
Nilsson (concussion) passed his concussion baseline testing, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports. Nilsson will still need to get back onto the ice and take some rubber before he can be fully cleared to resume playing. Still, it's a step in the right direction and could see the netminder back in the crease if the league resumes the 2019-20 regular season. Otherwise, fans and fantasy owners will need to look forward to next year when the Swede should be the No. 1 option in Ottawa.
Nilsson (concussion) played his last game before the hiatus Dec. 26, missing nearly three months. Nilsson really wasn't playing that well before the injury took place, and given that the Senators are in no hurry to win now, they were also in no hurry to rush him back. Nilsson will likely be in competition with Marcus Hogberg for Ottawa's goaltending top job at the start of 2020-21.
Nilsson (concussion) has been ruled out of the Senators' upcoming five-game road trip, Steve Lloyd of TSN 1200 Ottawa reports. At this point, it's looking more and more likely that Nilsson won't be ready to return before the 2019-20 campaign comes to an end. If that ends up being the case, the 29-year-old Swede will finish the season having posted a 9-9-2 record while registering a 3.18 GAA and .908 save percentage in 20 appearances.
