Nilsson started the year at 3-0-0 but has gone 0-8-1 with a 3.57 GAA and .879 SV% in his nine starts since. A move to Ottawa might earn Nilsson more starts but he’s in a worse position.

The Senators have acquired Anders Nilsson and Darren Archibald from the Canucks for Mike McKenna, Tom Pyatt and a 2019 sixth-round pick.

Nilsson has gone 3-8-1 with a 3.09 GAA and .895 SV% in 12 games with the Canucks this season. With Craig Anderson out with a concussion the Senators are trying to upgrade their goaltending situation by swapping McKenna for the 28-year-old Nilsson. His career .905 SV% suggests that he won’t be too big of an upgrade though.

Nilsson surrendered three goals on 28 shots in the Canucks loss to the Wild on December 4th. Nilsson started the season 3-0-0 but has lost six in a row with a 3.36 GAA and .884 SV% since then.
