Andrew Hammond was shelled for five goals on 37 shots in a 5-0 Game 6 loss on Sunday night.
Hammond was able to propel the Avs to a big 2-1 victory with 44 saves on the road in Game 5, but could not bring the same magic to a do-or-die Game 6. The 30-year-old, who has dwelled in the minors for the majority of his career, was the Avs' third-stringer but rose to the starting gig after injuries. Apr 22 - 10:30 PM

Andrew Hammond will start Game 6 for the Avalanche on Sunday night.

Hammond allowed just one goal on 45 shots this past Friday in a Game 5 victory. He will probably need to have another performance like that in order for Colorado to extend the series once again.
Apr 22 - 6:40 PM

Before Game 5 on Friday, Andrew Hammond had his doubts about whether he'd get another real shot in the NHL.

"I won’t lie. There’s days where you’ve wondered whether it would happen again for you, but as cliché as it is, you stick to the process and get better," Hammond said. "Fortunately, it all worked out (Friday) night. We’re not satisfied, though. We want to keep going and win (Sunday) night and extend the series and go back to Nashville (for Game 7)." Hammond getting the start was the result of both Semyon Varlamov and Jonathan Bernier being injured, so it certainly wasn't expected. However, Hammond made the most of the opportunity, stopping 44 of 45 shots to extend the Avalanche's playoff run to a Game 6. There's a very good chance that he'll get the start in Game 6, even if Bernier ends up being available for that contest.

Avalanche head coach Jared Bednar loved the way Andrew Hammond battled in Friday's 2-1 in win Game 5.

Hammond, who is Colorado's third-string goalie, turned aside 44 of 45 shots from the Predators. He was terrific. "That’s what we were hoping for," Bednar said of Hammond. "Loved his demeanor the last couple days when he knew he was going to take over. I gained some confidence in him, just the way he handled the last couple days and I know our (players) did as well. Everyone is hoping for the best. And good for him." Even if Jonathan Bernier is ready to return to the lineup, it's tough to envision Bednar not turning to Hammond in Game 6.

Andrew Hammond stopped 44 of 45 shots in Friday's 2-1 Game 5 win over the Nashville Predators.

This is shaping into one of the best stories of the year with Hammond stepping in for an injured Jonathan Bernier, who was replacing an injured Semyon Varlamov. Hammond made 20 saves in the final period to keep the Avs in the game long enough for them to come away with the victory. The 30-year-old netminder finished as the game's first star and he'll look to replicate that magic on Sunday in Game 6.

Andrew Hammond will be the Avalanche's starter for Game 5 on Friday.

This wasn't the plan, but Semyon Varlamov and now Jonathan Bernier are both injured, so the Avalanche's hands are tied. At least the Avalanche have a third-string goaltender with a bit of playoff experience, even if it's not a lot. Hammond has a 3.00 GAA and .921 save percentage in three career postseason games.
Apr 19 - 12:48 PM

Andrew Hammond turned aside all eight shots he faced during Wednesday's 3-2 loss to the Nashville Predators.

Hammond came into the game at the start of the third period after starter Jonathan Bernier was ruled out because of a lower-body injury. If Bernier can't go in Game 5 on Friday, the Avs would have to turn to Hammond, who played in just one NHL game during the regular season. Colorado is down 3-1 in this best-of-seven series, so one more loss would eliminate them from the playoffs. They might have to turn to Hammond in a do-or-die game, which is a scary thought.
Apr 19 - 1:40 AM

Andrew Hammond allowed just two goals on 33 shots in Wednesday's 2-1 home loss against the visiting Flyers.

Hammond did a good job in his first start of the season for Colorado, holding down the fort while giving the overworked and under the weather Semyon Varlamov a breather. It's likely to be a one-off for Hammond unless Varlamov is still green around the gills on Friday when the Blackhawks pay a visit. Either way Hammond doesn't warrant much in the way of fantasy consideration.
Mar 29 - 1:09 AM

Andrew Hammond will be between the pipes for Wednesday's game against the Philadelphia Flyers.

This will be Hammond's first start of the season. He will be filling in for Semyon Varlamov, who is feeling under the weather.
Mar 28 - 9:45 PM

Andrew Hammond has been called up by the Colorado Avalanche.

The Avalanche needed another goaltender because Semyon Varlamov is sick and Jonathan Bernier is still sidelined with a hand injury. Varlamov is regarded as questionable for Wednesday's game, so it's not at all clear who the starter will be. Rookie Spencer Martin also might end up starting over Hammond even if Varlamov can't play.

Andrew Hammond was concussed while sitting on the bench Monday night.

It was terrible luck as Hammond was struck in the head by an errant stick. As previously reported, Spencer Martin has been summoned because Jonathan Bernier is also sidelined.
Feb 28 - 1:20 PM

Andrew Hammond is apparently going through concussion protocol.

It's unclear when Hammond was injured. He hasn't seen any NHL action this season. Colorado has recalled Spencer Martin from the minors with Jonathan Bernier also out with a concussion.
Feb 27 - 5:23 PM

The Colorado Avalanche have recalled Andrew Hammond from the minors.

Hammond is being recalled because Jonathan Bernier was forced from yesterday's game against Winnipeg. The 30-year-old has yet to play in an NHL game this season, but he has an 8-6-2 record with a 3.34 goals-against-average and a .900 save percentage in the minors this season.
Feb 17 - 5:39 PM

Andrew Hammond has been sent to the minors.

Semyon Varlamov is ready to return from his groin injury, which is why Hammond was demoted. Hammond didn't end up playing with Colorado during his stint with the Avalanche.
Feb 1 - 3:19 PM

Andrew Hammond has been called up by the Colorado Avalanche.

Hammond had been sent to the AHL for the duration of the Avalanche's bye week. The fact that he's back suggests that Semyon Varlamov won't be ready to return from his lower-body injury on Saturday.
