I would like to say that I knew two weeks ago exactly who goalie Robin Lehner was. That he was a second round draft pick for the Ottawa Senators who won the Butterfield Trophy as the AHL Calder Playoffs MVP in 2011. Also, that he was now minding the net in Ottawa due to an injury to starter Craig Anderson. Furthermore, his father Michael coached New York Rangers super goalie Henrik Lundqvist. If I had known all of this, I could have been right on top of things when Lehner shutout the Stanley Cup Champion Boston Bruins 1-0 this past week. I could have acquired him for my fantasy hockey teams and pat myself on the back for my terrific hockey sense. But, I did not know any of that. The shutout caught my eye. It should now catch yours. If you play fantasy hockey (and I know you do) , pick him up ASAP. He could be the man in net for the Sens for thr rest of the season. I'm just saying this to help.

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...

For the first time since suffering a cut to his right pinky finger that severed a tendon, the Senators' number one goaltender addressed the media for the first time but refused to comment or elaborate on how he sustained the injury itself. In concealing his right hand with his jacket, it aroused the interest and suspicions...
The Senators are in a situation that usually isn’t seen at this point of the season—they have more goalies than they can reasonably use. Usually when this happens, the happy GM starts filling his post-season schedule with “lunch, 18 holes, and trade talk” with the less fortunate.
Ottawa, however, made the trade to as much fill in the gaps behind Craig Anderson, or...

The Ottawa Senators' recent hot-streak - 7-2-1 in their last ten games - has many in the nation's capital thinking of post-season hockey. Still, there's plenty of work to be done, and the team must continue their winning ways if they want to play past game eighty-two.
Sunday's challenge? Best the Florida...
With the Swedish Elite League regular season drawing to a close Tuesday, an interesting question must be raised by Senators management. Mika Zibanejad’s (and Fredrik Claesson’s, obviously, but for the purpose of this debate, he doesn’t really matter) Djurgården are finishing up a terrible year with games on Saturday and Tuesday, playing to avoid the dreaded relegation playoffs...
With a collection of forwards who have provided little secondary scoring over the past twenty games, the Ottawa Senators have turned to Rob Klinkhammer for some help.And why not?
Through 35 games played in Bingo, the 6'3" 209 lb left winger been a point-per-game player - scoring 12 goals and 23 assists. Besides bringing an exceptional hockey name to the lineup, there...
