Sen­a­tors sign goal­tender An­der­son to 2-year ex­ten­sion

Daily Local News (West Chester, PA) - - SPORTS -

OT­TAWA, ON­TARIO » Ot­tawa Sen­a­tors goalie Craig An­der­son agreed to a twoyear, $9.5 mil­lion con­tract ex­ten­sion Fri­day that will pay him $5.5 mil­lion in 2018-19 and $4 mil­lion in 2019-20.

The 36-year-old Amer­i­can was set to be­come an un­re­stricted free agent at the end of the season.

“It’s been a great home for me in Ot­tawa and I’m re­ally look­ing for­ward to play­ing (the con­tract out),” An­der­son said. “I want to con­tinue to con­trib­ute to the team and the or­ga­ni­za­tion. I’m just re­ally ec­static to be able to be a part of this group, be a part of this team.”

An­der­son said he and wife Ni­cholle talked about his con­tract sit­u­a­tion over the sum­mer and agreed the best thing would be to re­main in Ot­tawa. When Ni­cholle was di­ag­nosed with a rare form of throat can­cer last season, the or­ga­ni­za­tion gave An­der­son the sup­port he needed both on and off the ice al­low­ing the young fam­ily to be to­gether dur­ing its time of need.
