RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Chris Driedger.
Driedger, a third-round selection by the Senators in 2012, spent the majority of last season at ECHL Evansville, logging an ugly .885 save percentage in 40 games. Despite those poor numbers, injuries eventually paved the way for him to climb all the way to the NHL level, where he made one relief appearance while Craig Anderson and Robin Lehner were sidelined. Lehner has since been traded to Buffalo, but the late-season emergence of Andrew Hammond along with the signing of top college prospect Matt O’Connor appears to leave Driedger no better than fourth on the Sens' organizational goalie depth chart.
Driedger played most of last season in the WHL, but did make one appearance with AHL Binghamton, allowing two goals on 22 shots in a relief effort. With Craig Anderson and Robin Lehner entrenched in the NHL, it would take a couple serious injuries to even make Driedger a relevant backup netminder next season.
