Avalanche Acquires Elliott From Ottawa
The Colorado Avalanche Hockey Club announced today that the team has acquired goaltender Brian Elliott from the Ottawa Senators in exchange for goaltender Craig Anderson.

Elliott, 25, has appeared in a team-high 43 games for the Senators this season, posting a 13-19-8 record with a 3.19 goals-against average and three shutouts. The Newmarket, Ontario native helped the Senators reach the Stanley Cup playoffs a year ago, compiling a 29-18-4 record with a .909 save percentage and five shutouts in 55 appearances.

“Brian is an experienced NHL goaltender,” said Avalanche General Manager/Executive Vice President Greg Sherman.  “We look forward to having him join our team.”

Ottawa’s ninth choice (ninth round, 291st overall) in the 2003 Entry Draft, Elliott has fashioned a 59-45-15 career record with a 2.81 GAA and .903 Sv% in 130 NHL appearances.  Prior to turning pro, the 6-foot-3 netminder played four seasons at the University of Wisconsin (WCHA), where he backstopped the Badgers to the 2006 NCAA championship.

Anderson appeared in 33 games for Colorado this season and was 13-15-3 with a 3.28 GAA and .897 save percentage.
