Anderson (hand) was placed on injured reserve Thursday.

According to the Ottawa Sun's Bruce Garrioch, The Senators seemingly view Anderson's injury to be a day-to-day situation, but it was significant enough to keep him out for Thursday's game against the Stars. Fortunately, because of the recent break for the NHL All-Star break, Anderson's IR stint can be backdated to Jan. 21, which will enable him to suit up Saturday against the Coyotes if team doctors deem him ready to go.
