Ottawa Senators goaltender Craig Anderson has left the team to be with his wife Nicholle, who was recently diagnosed with cancer.

The Senators say there is no timetable for Anderson's return.

Anderson took a leave of absence last week, returning on Sunday to make 37 saves in an emotional 2-0 shutout win over the Edmonton Oilers.

Goaltender Mike Condon, recently acquired from Pittsburgh, was scheduled to make his first start of the season when the Senators host Vancouver on Thursday.
