Ottawa, ON, Canada (4E Sports) - Ottawa Senators granted goaltender Craig Anderson's request for an indefinite leave of absence to deal with a personal matter.

"With the support of the entire organization, we've provided Craig with a leave of absence so that he can attend to a personal matter at home," said general manager Pierre Dorion .

"While we are uncertain of how long Craig may be away, he will continue to have our support for as much time as is needed. We will respect his privacy and will have no further comment at this time," he added.

Dorion said the Senators recalled Chris Driedger from Binghamton of the American Hockey League to back up Andrew Hammond.

Anderson, who missed about a week of training camp after he was excused to deal with a personal issue, made 22 saves in a 3-0 road victory against the Vancouver Canucks on Tuesday.

Anderson is 4-1-0 with a 2.94 goals against average and a .903 save percentage this season.

The 22-year-old Driedger had a strong training camp and was 1-0-1 with an 0.96 goals against average and .961 save percentage in two games with Binghamton this season.

Hammond lost his only start this season, 5-1 to the Detroit Red Wings at Joe Louis Arena on Oct. 17. He made 20 saves and has a save percentage of .800.
