The Ottawa Senators have acquired goalie Mike Condon from the Pittsburgh Penguins in exchange for a fifth-round draft pick in 2017, Ottawa confirmed Wednesday.

As a rookie last season, the undrafted Condon filled the cratering void left by Carey Price when the Montreal Canadiens superstar went down with injury.

He made 51 starts for Montreal, authoring a .903 save percentage.

Condon's only appearance for Pittsburgh came in relief of Marc-Andre Fleury. He stopped all seven shots he faced, and didn't factor in the decision in a loss to the Nashville Predators.

The Senators' goaltending situation remains fluid with Andrew Hammond out with a lower-body injury and starter Craig Anderson needing the flexibility to be with his wife, who last week was diagnosed with cancer.

Condon provides the club with capable insurance, and likely means they'll continue carrying three goaltenders.
