Craig Anderson returning to former club to officially retire

Arguably the best goalie in Ottawa history will be retiring as a Senator. According to TSN's Darren Dreger, Craig Anderson will sign a one-day contract with Ottawa to retire as a Senator. Dreger said it's still unclear when the process may happen, but it's likely it will come on Tuesday when the Senators host the Buffalo Sabres.

The 42 year old Anderson came to Ottawa via a trade from Colorado in 2011. Anderson would go on to record a 202-168-46 record, a .914 save percentage and 28 shutouts in 422 starts and 13 relief appearances.

"The Ottawa Senators plan on signing Craig Anderson to a 1 day contract so he can retire a Sen. Tuesday vs Buffalo appears to be the target. Good man and great gesture by @Senators" Dreger said.

Dreger went on to say that Anderson's off-ice future is unclear at this time, but he will remain with the Buffalo Sabres on a part-time basis.

"Anderson's future remains unclear, but he will continue to do part-time work for the @BuffaloSabres for now."

Congratulations to Craig Anderson on this well deserved honor!
