The Ottawa Senators are reportedly close to re-signing restricted free agent goaltender Robin Lehner after agreeing on the length of the new contract.

Ottawa has veteran netminder Craig Anderson under contract for one more season and a long-term extension for Lehner would signal their intention to make him the starter going forward.
