With a number of teams exploring goaltending depth this season, the Ottawa Senators might be in a position to orchestrate a trade involving their starter Craig Anderson.

Anderson, 37, is in the final-year of a two-year, $9.5 million contract and owns a modified no-trade clause where he can list up to 10 teams he will not accept a move to.

The Senators tried to move Anderson in the off-season, but teams wanted Ottawa to retain a portion of his salary and ultimately Sens GM Pierre Dorion opted to hold on to him.

The Philadelphia Flyers, Carolina Hurricanes, Edmonton Oilers and New York Islanders are among the teams believed to be in the market for a goaltender and could pursue Anderson later on in the season.

Anderson isn’t the only member of the Senators potentially on the move this season, as forwards Ryan Dzingel, Zack Smith and Bobby Ryan are also on the trade block.

In 29 games with the Senators so far this season, Anderson has posted a 13-12-3 record with a 3.51 goals-against-average and a .907 save percentage.
