The Ottawa Senators announced some difficult news yesterday, revealing that goalie Craig Anderson’s wife, Nicholle, has been diagnosed with cancer.
Fans immediately gave an outpouring of support to the couple via social media, with Anderson’s teammates even chiming in with a video.
Incredibly proud and blessed to call Nicholle my friend. Her strength and positivity are just a few of her manyyyy admirable traits.— Julie (@julieturris) October 29, 2016
Details about her diagnosis have not been released, however it’s been made clear that Nicholle feels the team needs her husband in the net, and has pushed him to continue playing.
He will likely be back in the game tonight against the Oilers.
