Andrew Hammond's new contract with the Ottawa Senators did not include a "no move" clause.
He said there were no job guarantees offered by the club, so there is a possibility that he could be involved in a trade. However, the preferred scenario would probably be to deal Robin Lehner to clear up Ottawa's crowded crease. Hammond was obviously excited about getting a three-year, one-way contract after he helped get the Senators into the playoffs and the team rewarded him for that. May 21 - 11:48 AM

The Ottawa Senators have signed Andrew Hammond to a three-year, $4.05 million contract.

Hammond is being rewarded for his breakout stint with Ottawa. He led the Senators to the playoffs by posting a 1.79 GAA and .941 save percentage in 24 contests. He might never be able to replicate that level of success, but the Senators aren't paying him to do that. They're taking a bit of a risk by giving him a three-year deal, but the cap hit is favorable enough that it won't meaningfully hinder Ottawa even if Hammond collapses. Ottawa now has three goaltenders signed to one-way contracts including Craig Anderson and Robin Lehner, so look for them to make a trade this summer.

Contract talks with Andrew Hammond will resume when Pierre Dorion returns from Prague, according to assistant GM Randy Lee.

The Senators signed college free agent Matt O'Connor over the weekend, but he's expected to play in the minors next season. If Ottawa is able to come to an agreement with Hammond then it's believed that Robin Lehner, who suffered a concussion this season, could be up for grabs via a trade.

Updating a previous item, it appears that the Ottawa Senators had their first conversation with Andrew Hammond's agent in weeks on Saturday.

It makes sense that they would chat with Hammond's reps after signing Matt O'Connor to a contract, creating a crowded crease situation heading into the offseason. Keep in mind this is a report via ESPN's Pierre LeBrun, and is (not surprisingly) unofficial.

The Ottawa Senators haven't spoken with Andrew Hammond's agent for a couple of weeks, and even that was only a general conversation, ESPN's Pierre LeBrun reports.

The Senators already had a crowded crease situation before Saturday, but now it's genuinely clogged with college free agent Matt O'Connor added to the mix. One cannot help but wonder if "The Hamburglar" may find himself on a different team in 2015-16.

On a weird note, McDonald's revived and revamped Hamburglar looks very similar to Andrew Hammond.

That's not us saying it, Hammond himself noted on Twitter, "Finding it a little weird that McDonald's is bringing the Hamburglar back and he looks like my twin." Hammond's nickname is the Hamburglar and he gained popularity with his stellar performance towards the end of the 2014-15 campaign. There were some occasions where Senators fans would even throw hamburgers onto the ice after a win in tribute to Hammond. McDonald's took note of the PR opportunity and Hammond even got free McDonald's for life in the Ottawa region. A McDonald's spokesperson denied that Hammond didn't have anything to do with the Hamburglar's revival, but then jokingly added, "Has anyone seen Hammond and Hamburglar in the same room? Let me know what you hear."

The Ottawa Senators and the Andrew Hammond have begun negotiating a contract extension.

It will be interesting to see if the two sides can find a middle ground. Hammond had a 1.79 GAA and .941 save percentage in 24 contests, but before that the 27-year-old wasn't even looking particularly imrpessive at the AHL level. So how much weight do you put into his incredible finish? If he deserves a one-way deal, what will Ottawa do with Craig Anderson and Robin Lehner, who are also under contract for the 2015-16 campaign? With that in mind, it wouldn't be surprising if Hammond ends up testing the free agent market.

Andrew Hammond is honored to be nominated for the Masterton Trophy.

Andrew Hammond has been nominated as a finalist for the Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy, which is awarded "to the player who best exemplifies the qualities of perseverance, sportsmanship and dedication to hockey."

As an undrafted 27 year old rookie who had already posted a 7-13-2 record with a .898 save percentage and a 3.51 GAA in 25 games with AHL Binghamton, Hammond made his NHL debut on Feb. 18th and helped lead the Ottawa Senators to an improbable playoff berth. As the seventh seed, no less. Hammond would go on to post a 20-1-2 record in 23 decisions with three shutouts and 18 Quality Starts. Hammond also posted a .941 save percentage and a 1.79 GAA. Oh, plus he earned a lifetime pass at all Ottawa-based McDonald's as well.

Andrew Hammond will get an offer from the Senators.

"We have two goaltenders signed right now (Anderson and Lehner) and Hammond is an unrestricted free agent," GM Bryan Murray said Wednesday. "We will make an offer to (Hammond) and we'll see if he's interested and willing to accept what we have for him. If that happens, if he does (sign), then obviously, there will be a change with one of the other two guys." There could be a summer trade if that scenario arises, but Robin Lehner's concussion might complicate a potential move.
Apr 30 - 11:57 AM

Although he hasn't had any talks with the Ottawa Senators yet, Andrew Hammond would like to re-sign with the team.

Hammond is set to become an unrestricted free agent this summer. After posting a 1.79 GAA and .941 save percentage in 24 games in 2014-15, there should be some interest in his services, but Ottawa might not be a good fit for him. The Senators already have Craig Anderson and Robin Lehner under contract so unless Hammond is willing to sign another two-way deal and start the season back in the AHL, it's hard to envision him and the Senators seeing eye-to-eye.

Andrew Hammond can become an unrestricted free agent in July.

The 27-year-old rookie compiled a 20-1-2 record along with a 1.79 goals-against average and a .941 save percentage to help the Senators qualify for the playoffs. He incredible run as the team's starter could earn him an extension, but the team already has Craig Anderson and Robin Lehner under contract. There is speculation that Ottawa may look to trade a goaltender.
Apr 27 - 4:07 PM

Andrew Hammond confirmed that he won't be the starter in Sunday night's game against Montreal.

Hammond said coach Dave Cameron told him the news earlier this morning. The Senators are down 2-0 in the series, and Hammond has given up a few bad goals in the first two games. Ottawa wasn't outplayed in either game, but they realize that losing game three will likely be the end of their journey. Craig Anderson will face the Canadiens. He hasn't played since March 29th, and he has started just two games since 10th. His last win came against the Calgary Flames on March 8th.
Apr 19 - 11:08 AM

It is not clear if Andrew Hammond will get the start in Game 3 in Ottawa Sunday against Montreal.

The Senators are down 2-0 in the best of seven series to the Canadiens, and although Hammond has not been the major reason for the deficit, a switch to Craig Anderson could provide the team with a little spark. Thus far Ottawa coach Dave Cameron has been silent on the topic. Stay tuned for further updates.

Andrew Hammond made 39 saves on 42 shots in Friday's 3-2 overtime loss to Montreal in game two of their first round series.

The Senators scored the opening goal of the game, but Montreal stormed back with two goals of their own in the second period. Ottawa managed to tie the game in the third period to force overtime. Eric Gryba had a terrible turnover in his own zone which led to Galchenyuk's game-winning goal, but Hammond will likely want to have that shot back. The Senators now find themselves down two games to none in this best of seven series. Game three, in Ottawa, will take place on Sunday evening.
