Lundin (hand) probable to miss start of camp | 01/07/2013 2:46 PM
NewsMike Lundin suffered a hand injury prior to Christmas and he isn't expected to be ready in time for the start of training camp.
ImpactThe Senators signed him to a one-year, $1.15 contract last July to serve as a bottom-pairing defenseman. Lundin skated in seven games with Almtuna in Sweden's second tier division, where he had four assists and a minus-2 rating. He doesn't have any fantasy value, but his absence as well as Jared Cowen's, who is out for the year following hip surgery, should open up some competition for spots on the back end at camp. However, it doesn't appear as though he will be sidelined for very long.
