The Colorado Avalanche have acquired Andrew Hammond as part of the Matt Duchene trade.

The 29-year-old netminder will provide some insurance in case Semyon Varlamov or Jonathan Bernier gets hurt. He was with the Belleville Senators of the AHL at the time of the trade and was 2-2-1 with a 2.61 GAA and a .925 save percentage. Kyle Turris went to Nashville in the three team deal while Samuel Girard, Vladislav Kamenev and Shane Bowers along with draft picks are headed to Colorado.
Nov 5 - 7:54 PM

Andrew Hammond has been placed on waivers by the Ottawa Senators.

No surprise there. Hammond is the third goaltender on the Senators' depth charts after Craig Anderson and Mike Condon, so he's only going to play for Ottawa in the event of an injury.

The Senators are trying to trade Andrew Hammond.

With Mike Condon back in the fold as Craig Anderson's backup there is no room for Hammond on the NHL roster. As Hammond makes $1.5 million per season, he is a tad too expensive to keep as a starter in the AHL. The Sens are trying to deal Hammond but he is recovering from hip surgery and had an inconsistent 2016-17 limiting interest in him.

Andrew Hammond has a torn labrum in his right hip.

Hammond will have season-ending surgery as a result. After clearing waivers, Hammond was sent to the minors on Feb. 12.

After clearing waivers Andrew Hammond is on his way back to AHL Binghamton on Sunday.

In 30 games since his amazing season for Ottawa two seasons ago, Hammond has posted a 7-13-4 record along with a .906 save percentage and a 2.83 GAA. He also carries a 14:4 Quality Start to Really Bad Start ratio. Down on the farm, Hammond is 0-4 with 13 goals against since the beginning of 2015.

With Craig Anderson back in the fold, Andrew Hammond has been placed on waivers.

Some 29th birthday present. The Hamburglar has not been effective this season for Ottawa, as he's 0-2 through six games with 14 goals against and an .837 save percentage.
Feb 11 - 12:06 PM

Andrew Hammond allowed six goals on 30 shots in Ottawa's 6-0 loss to the St. Louis Blues.

It's the first time Hammond plays 60 minutes since Oct. 17. He looked solid in the opening period, but things started falling apart in the second frame. With Mike Condon playing well and Craig Anderson nearing a return, it looks like Hammond's time in Ottawa is coming to a close. He now has a 0-2-0 record with a 4.08 goals-against-average and a .837 save percentage.
Feb 7 - 11:00 PM

Andrew Hammond will start Tuesday night against St. Louis.

His first start since Dec. 18 will give Mike Condon a much-deserved night off and it could serve as a showcase for him before Ottawa has to trade or waive him once Craig Anderson is ready to return to action. Hammond has a 0-1-0 record with a 3.29 goals-against average and an .857 save percentage in five appearances this season. That includes three previous starts.
Feb 7 - 11:41 AM

Andrew Hammond (ankle) is no longer on the injured reserve list.

Hammond hasn't played since Dec. 18 due to a high ankle sprain. He went into the season as the team's backup, but now his long-term role is unclear because when Craig Anderson returns from his personal leave, Mike Condon will likely still be above Hammond in the depth charts.
Jan 27 - 4:15 PM

Andrew Hammond's ankle injury is specifically dealing with a high ankle sprain.

Senators coach Guy Boucher was originally Hammond would be fine in a matter of days, but now Ottawa is listing him as week-to-week. He has a 3.52 GAA and .855 save percentage in four contests. With Craig Anderson (personal) also absent, Matt O'Connor is on the roster as Ottawa's backup goalie.

Andrew Hammond isn't expected to be sidelined for very long with his ankle issue.

"It's not a long-term thing," coach Guy Boucher said. "[Hammond] should be fine in the next [few] days, but we'll do everything we need to do, the X-rays and everything, and make sure. But right now it doesn't look like it's anything significant." Matt O'Connor is up with the Senators on an emergency recall.

Andrew Hammond's first start since Oct. 28 didn't go as planned, as the goaltender made seven first period saves and then left the game with an ankle injury.

Hammond returned to the bench to back up Mike Condon for the rest of the night, but the Senators said his status will be evaluated on Monday. Despite the twisted ankle, Ottawa beat the Islanders 6-2.

It'll be Andrew Hammond's turn in net on Sunday against the Islanders.

Hammond hasn't quite been his impeccable self this season, allowing eight goals in three games with an 0-1-0 record thus far. The Islanders however are one of hockey's most-struggling teams and they're tabbing Jean-Francois Berube, so this could be a sneaky good start for Hammond yet.
Sun, Dec 18, 2016 02:02:00 PM

Andrew Hammond could get the start Sunday against the Islanders.

Although the Senators have started Mike Condon in back-to-back games in the past, it still seems likely that Hammond will get the call after Condon started and won Saturday night's contest against the Devils. Adjust your lineup accordingly.
