Senators waive Mike Condon day after he gives up awful goal

Watch as Derek Stepan of the Arizona Coyotes beats Ottawa Senators goaltender Mike Condon with a wrist shot from the Coyotes blue line shorthanded.

It’s been a rough 24 hours for Ottawa Senators goaltender Mike Condon.

The veteran netminder was placed on waivers Wednesday, after a disastrous outing on Tuesday that saw him get pulled after giving up an embarrassing goal from the opposing blue line.

Condon joined the Senators via trade in 2016-17 and provided solid work in the Ottawa crease with starter Craig Anderson out after his wife’s cancer diagnosis.

The Senators rewarded the Holliston, Mass., native with a three-year contract the following off-season worth $2.4 million annually.

The 28-year-old had a .902 save percentage in 31 games with Ottawa last season, and is 0-2 with an ugly .800 save percentage in his two appearances this year.

His contract should allow him to pass through waivers unclaimed, where he can then report to AHL Belleville and get some games in.
