Ottawa Senators goaltender Craig Anderson said he has no idea when he will be able to return to the lineup.
Anderson has been sidelined since severing a tendon in his pinky last week while cooking dinner at home last week.
He underwent surgery to repair the tendon and still is not able to grip his stick.
"Obviously the timeline is wide open right now," Anderson said Thursday. "All I can do right now is make sure I stay in shape. I'm able to go out there and skate with my gear on. The main thing right now is keeping my legs, keeping everything strong, so when I do have a chance to come back, I'm physically ready to go."
The 30-year-old Anderson has a 29-19-6 record and 2.85 goals-against average to put Ottawa in the seventh spot in the Eastern Conference entering play Thursday.
Robin Lehner has won both his starts since he was called up from Binghamtom, including his first career shutout in Tuesday's 1-0 win over Boston.
