2018 Fantasy Outlook
Condon impressed enough to earn a three-year extension with Ottawa after 2016-17 season, but he was not the same goaltender the following year. Part of Condon's regression had to do with Ottawa's collective struggles as a team. However, the defense in front of a goalie directly impacts his fantasy value. The Senators' poor defense certainly hurt Condon, as well as their starter, Craig Anderson. Condon's save percentage fell to .902 in his second season with the Senators and his GAA increased to 3.25, up from 2.50 in his first 40 games with Ottawa. At this point, Condon is probably not worth a draft pick, but he should be monitored closely should the Senators decide to give the 28-year-old a shot to secure the top job as part of what appears to be a full-scale rebuild in Canada's capital.

Allows five in loss
GOttawa Senators
October 8, 2018
Condon gave up five goals on 29 shots Monday, resulting in a 6-3 loss to the Bruins.
ANALYSIS
It was Condon's first appearance of the regular season and he was certainly not at his best. At 28 years of age, Condon could play himself into a starting role with the rebuilding Senators, but he must string together better performances than what we saw from him Monday.

Past Fantasy Outlooks

2016
Condon was thrust into an unexpectedly major role last season after he was acquired by the Senators in November. With starter Craig Anderson unavailable for large chunks of the campaign due to an ongoing family matter, Condon was tasked with stepping in as his new club’s primary netminder shortly after he arrived in Ottawa. Despite those tough circumstances, the 27-year-old backstop performed admirably in his 42 appearances with the Senators, compiling a 19-14-6 record while registering a 2.54 GAA and a .913 save percentage over that span. Ottawa rewarded that performance by signing Condon to a three-year, $7.2 million contract extension this offseason. he'll remain the Senators’ backup in 2017-18, but he could conceivably take over as the team’s full-time starter in 2018-19, as Anderson is set to become an unrestricted free agent next summer.
For the second straight year, Condon outplayed an incumbent goalie to earn a larger-than-expected role. In 2014-15, he beat out Joey MacDonald to become the main goalie for the AHL’s Hamilton Bulldogs; last year, he forced his way onto Montreal’s roster with a sterling training camp, beating out Dustin Tokarski to be Carey Price’s backup. That job typically doesn’t require heavy lifting, but when Price went down with a knee injury in late November, Condon’s burden got a lot heavier. Initially, it looked like the Canadiens had unearthed a goaltending gem from the depths of organized hockey. The Princeton grad went 6-0-2 with a .936 save percentage in his first eight starts, but he couldn’t sustain that level. Indeed, the 25-year-old’s save percentage dropped to .888 in December as it became obvious that Condon needed to stand on his head nightly to earn a victory for the offense-starved Canadiens. It was then that we realized why Condon had been knocking around the ECHL and AHL. Heading into 2016-17, with Price’s health at 100 percent, Condon will need to beat out veteran Al Montoya for the backup role to avoid returning to the minors.
