Ottawa Senators goaltender Craig Anderson has left the Ottawa Senators to be with his wife Nicholle, who was recently diagnosed with cancer.
The Senators say there is no timetable for Anderson’s return.
The Senators recently acquired Mike Condon from Pittsburgh to help with Ottawa’s goaltending duties. Ottawa hosts Vancouver tonight.
Anderson had been given a leave of absence Oct. 27 to go to Florida to be with his family.
But after learning the Senators had lost goalie Andrew Hammond for at least a week with a lower-body injury, Nicholle Anderson encouraged her husband to rejoin the team.
