Ottawa Senators should honour Craig Anderson when he retires

The Ottawa Senators have relied on Craig Anderson since acquiring him back in 2011 and he deserves to be honoured once his playing days are over.

Sending Brian Elliott to the Colorado Avalanche in a straight swap for Anderson has proved to be one of the smartest trades in the team’s history, with the 37-year-old still holding down the starting role while Elliott moved to the St. Louis Blues the summer after being traded.

Since arriving in the Canadian capital, Anderson has amassed 401 regular season appearances with a further 40 appearances in the post-season.
