OTTAWA — The Ottawa Senators will start the NHL season without goalie Cam Talbot after he suffered an upper-body injury. 

The team says Talbot, 35, will miss five-to-seven weeks due to the undisclosed ailment. 

Ottawa acquired the veteran netminder from the Wild for goalie Filip Gustavsson in July. 

Talbot spent last season in Minnesota, where he posted a 32-12-4 record with a 2.76 goals-against average and a .911 save percentage. 

The Senators address their goaltending depth Monday, claiming Magnus Hellberg off waivers from the Seattle Kraken. 

Hellberg, 31, has a 2.81 goals-against average and .869 save percentage across five career NHL games.
