Driedger signed a two-year, two-way contract extension with the Panthers on Tuesday.
Driedger played pretty well in the minors this year, compiling an 18-12-1 record while posting a 2.45 GAA and .924 save percentage in 32 appearances. The 2012 third-round pick will likely continue to split starts with Samuel Montembeault for AHL Springfield next season.
The Panthers signed Driedger to a two-way contract for the remainder of the season.
This move temporarily brings Driedger onto the NHL roster, but he was immediately waived for the purpose of assignment. Once he clears, he'll return to AHL Springfield. Driedger is now playoff eligible in case either Roberto Luongo or James Reimer is injured, but he isn't expected to make an NHL appearance otherwise.
Driedger inked a one-year, two-way contract with Ottawa on Wednesday.
Considering that the Senators re-signed Mike Condon for the No. 2 role this upcoming season, Driedger figures to spend the bulk of the year with AHL Belleville. During the 2016-17 campaign, the 23-year-old posted a subpar 12-19-1 record with a 3.22 GAA in the minors. If he wants to earn his way onto an NHL squad, he's going to need to perform significantly better moving forward.
Driedger was returned to AHL Binghamton on Friday.
This could be a sign that Craig Anderson (lower body) will be fit to play in Saturday's home contest against the Canadiens. Driedger has only drawn into one NHL game during each of the last three seasons.
Driedger was recalled from AHL Binghamton on Tuesday.
The 22-year-old netminder's recall comes with No. 1 goaltender Craig Anderson (undisclosed) missing Tuesday's morning skate. If Anderson is unable to play Tuesday against Tampa Bay, expect Driedger to serve as the backup goaltender to Mike Condon.
The Senators assigned Driedger to AHL Binghamton on Friday.
Ottawa activated Andrew Hammond off injured reserve in a corresponding move Friday, so the Senators are no longer in need of Driedger's services as a backup with two other healthy goaltenders on their roster. Driedger will serve as AHL Binghamton's primary netminder for the foreseeable future.
Driedger was promoted from AHL Binghamton on Sunday.
Driedger will take the place of Matt O'Connor as the Senators' backup netminder behind Mike Condon, but figures to see little action between the pipes. He's played in one game at the NHL level this season, allowing four goals on just 15 shots to take a loss. He's faired slightly better with the Binghamton affiliate, but still owns a 2.74 GAA at that level.
Driedger has been reassigned to AHL Binghamton, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.
Craig Anderson appears ready to return, and with the addition of Mike Condon, Driedger is no longer needed. Anderson's situation could call for a few more missed games, so this may not be the last time we see the netminder rostered by Ottawa. The 22-year-old Driedger was pounded with four goals in his only appearance this season.
Driedger was forced into Friday's game against the Flames after Andrew Hammond sustained a lower-body injury late in the first period. The prospect ultimately yielded four goals on 15 shots on the way to a loss.
The Senators actually had a 2-1 lead to start the second stanza, only for Calgary to storm back with four unanswered goalies against Driedger, who was appearing in just his third NHL game. With regular starter Craig Anderson (personal) away from the team and Hammond now injured, Driedger could be looking at additional playing time in the near future. The Sens' goalie picture will be sorted out ahead of Sunday's road game against the Oilers.
Driedger was called up from AHL Binghamton on Thursday, Sportsnet reports.
Driedger is needed with the parent club in the wake of news that No. 1 goalie Craig Anderson was granted a leave of absence to do a "personal matter at home." The Manitoba native was brilliant in his first two starts with the Baby Senators, posting a .961 save percentage with a win over that span, though he should work as the backup to Andrew Hammond for as long as Anderson is unavailable.
Driedger was reassigned to AHL Binghamton on Thursday.
Driedger didn't make an appearance in his short call-up with the Sens, as he was mostly there for emergency purposes. With Craig Anderson's (lower body) return imminent, the 21-year-old's services are no longer needed.
Driedger was recalled Monday from AHL Binghamton on emergency conditions.
Driedger would presumably dress as the backup netminder to Andrew Hammond on Thursday should Craig Anderson be unavailable after leaving Tuesday's game with a lower-body injury. It's unlikely his stay will be a long one unless the injury turns out to be long-term in nature, so he's not someone fantasy owners need to concern themselves with.
Driedger has been reassigned to AHL Binghamton.
Driedger's latest stint on Ottawa's active roster lasted just three days. The 21-year-old netminder had been with the parent club so that Andrew Hammond could attend to a personal matter. However, Hammond is now back with the team per this latest report. Driedger will continue to develop in the minors where he is 9-8-1 with a 2.99 GAA and .904 save percentage for the Baby Sens.
The Senators recalled Driedger from AHL Binghamton reports.
Driedger was brought up to fill the backup duties while Andrew Hammond attends to a personal matter. Driedger figures to head back to Binghamton once Hammond rejoins the Senators.
Driedger was reassigned to AHL Binghamton on Sunday.
Driedger saw action in just one game, which came Saturday in relief of Craig Anderson, but he'll now return to the AHL following Andrew Hammond's recall from his conditioning stint. He'll once again serve as organizational depth, but would probably be in line for a recall again should one of the aforementioned netminders suffer an injury.
Driedger was perfect in relief of starter Craig Anderson on Saturday night. He made 11 saves in a period-and-a-half of work.
It was his first appearance this season and just his second relief appearance of his career. Driedger is yet to allow an NHL goal.
Driedger was called up from AHL Binghamton on Monday.
Driedger will provide depth at goalie behind current starter Craig Anderson and the injured Andrew Hammond (head), and will serve as the primary backup while Hammond remains out.
