OTTAWA - Robin Lehner wasn't about to create any waves Wednesday when he addressed the media for the first time since fellow goaltender Craig

Anderson signed a three-year extension Monday.

Lehner, who spent part of Wednesday afternoon visiting with kids at a Senators hockey camp at the Bell Sensplex, echoed Anderson's earlier comments that competition in the Ottawa crease should be viewed as positive.

Maybe that's really how he feels, but with both goalies having just inked three-year deals, neither Lehner or Anderson have any choice but to be on the same page, at least publicly, heading into this season.

"It doesn't change my focus at all," said the 23-year-old Swede. "It's good for the team. (Anderson) is a veteran on the team, he's a good goalie and I still have lots to learn.
