  • Anderson was designated for the taxi squad Sunday. Ilya Samsonov was promoted to the active roster in a corresponding move. The 39-year-old Anderson will continue practicing and traveling with the team while Samsonov and Vitek Vanecek divvy up the starting duties.

  • Anderson will be promoted to the active roster and serve as Vitek Vanecek's backup for Tuesday's game versus Pittsburgh, Tarik El-Bashir of The Athletic reports. Ilya Samsonov is expected to be ready to return to NHL action in the near future, so Craig Anderson could find himself on Washington's taxi squad on a more permanent basis soon. The veteran netminder has gone 1-1-0 while posting a 3.61 GAA and a .853 save percentage through two appearances this season.

  • Anderson was sent to the taxi squad Monday, per CBS Sports. Should Ilya Samsonov be ready to return to action Tuesday versus the Penguins, Anderson will likely remain on the taxi squad going forward. If Samsonov needs more time to get up to speed, expect Anderson to be promoted again to back up Vitek Vanecek.

  • Anderson stopped 23 shots in Sunday's 4-3 win over the Devils. The veteran netminder found himself in a 2-0 hole early in the second period before the Caps offense, and particularly the team's power play, got rolling, but Anderson came up with some big saves down the stretch to secure his first victory of the season. It's still not clear when Ilya Samsonov will be ready to assume regular duties again, either in a timeshare with Vitek Vanecek or as the No. 1, so with Washington facing another back-to-back set against New Jersey at the end of February, Anderson could get another start before the month is out.

  • Anderson will draw the home start for Sunday's matchup with New Jersey. The 39-year-old has been filling as the backup behind Vitek Vanecek as Ilya Samsonov continues his conditioning stint in the AHL, but Anderson will get his first start of the season. Anderson has just one appearance this year, as he has a 0-1-0 record, while stopping just six of eight shots he's faced. The veteran will draw a solid matchup against a Devils offense that ranks 20th in the league in goals per contest this campaign (2.75).
