Keep up with all the injury news and roster updates from across the NHL with daily Ice Chips.
Goaltender Cam Talbot will start the season for the first time on Saturday against the Philadelphia Flyers.
The 35-year-old Talbot missed the first three weeks of the season with a rib injury and makes his Sens debut as a substitute for Anton Forsberg on Thursday.
Head Coach DJ Smith on Sens’ goalkeeping plan:
“The goal all along was to be balanced and whoever played better would get more games. Unfortunately for Forsy, he had to play almost all of them. Talbot is fresh, I expect he’ll come in and do what he needs to do and we’ll ride him for a bit.”
Last season with the Minnesota Wild, Talbot compiled a 32-12-4 record with a 2.76 clean sheet average and a .911 save percentage. He was acquired by the Wild in the off-season in exchange for Filip Gustavsson.
The senators have recalled defense attorney Jacob Bernard-Docker from the AHL’s Belleville Senators, the team announced Friday.
The 22-year-old had made 13 appearances for Ottawa this season, recording one assist. The Canmore, Alta. The native was drafted 26th overall by the Sens in the 2018 NHL draft.
Smith also updated on the status of forward Josh Norris, who is out with a shoulder injury. No decision has yet been made on his recovery plan and Norris is currently seeking a second opinion on the injury.
“It’s his right to do and consider what’s best for him. It would be great to have him back but we have to carry on like he’s not coming,” Smith said.
