Andrew Hammond has cleared waivers, but what lies ahead for him remains unclear.

Hammond has already refused a conditioning stint down in the AHL, and while he can still be out-righted Ottawa may be loath to pull an ultimatum. Mike Condon is the clear preferred backup to Craig Anderson, so something happens with one of them, Hammond may have to simply bide his time until a new opportunity in the NHL presents itself.

At least according to David Pagnotta, the LA Kings have explored trading for Andrew Hammond.

Of course, this shouldn't be terribly surprising given the cascading effects losing Jonathan Quick has had on the franchise. The Ontario Reign just released Anders Lindback from his PTO, so they're in no hurry to fill the void. Hammond comes with a $1.35M cap hit through next season, and the Kings will have to clear almost half that to make room for the backup netminder.
Nov 19 - 2:44 PM

The Ottawa Senators have waived Andrew Hammond after he rejected being sent to the AHL on a conditioning stint.

Simply put, Hammond believes the best place for him to be is in the NHL - even if that's on the bench. Well, now things get a little dicey as he cannot fully control his own fate via waivers. The 28-year-old will make his $1.35M no matter where he plays (and through next year), so this could be more about posturing to help facilitate a trade more than anything else. Stay tuned.

Andrew Hammond will back up Mike Condon during Thursday's match with Nashville.

Hammond has stopped 23 of 29 shots so far this season, and is purportedly on the trading block. It doesn't appear he has much of a role with the team anymore, but he is in the lineup Thursday because of Craig Anderson has a personal issue to attend to.

Andrew Hammond will be a healthy scratch in Tuesday's game against the Flyers.

After dealing with groin injury, Hammond is now healthy and ready to play, but the Sens will go with Craig Anderson and Mike Condon as goalies. There have been rumblings that Hammond is on the trade block. Fredrik Clasesson will also watch from the press box.
Nov 15 - 7:08 PM

Andrew Hammond is ready to return to action but it remains to be seen if that will be in Ottawa to start.

Hammond has recovered from a groin injury that had kept him out of action for over two weeks. Since he sustained the injury however, the Sens acquired Mike Condon who has played well. It is likely that Hammond will be dispatched to Binghamton to get into game shape while Condon serves as Criag Anderson's backup for the immediate future.

Andrew Hammond (groin) is slated to miss at least another week.

The Senators sought some insurance on Wednesday when the team acquired Mike Condon from Pittsburgh. If Craig Anderson has to step away from the team again to be with his wifte then Condon will handle the goaltending duties until Hammond can return from a groin injury.

Andrew Hammond is expected to miss "at least a week" with his lower body injury, according to the Senators' play-by-play man Dean Brown.

Tough blow for Hammond who was offered another opportunity to prove his mettle in the NHL. Once he heals up and Craig Anderson's family concerns are dealt with, we expect Hammond to return to his role as the backup.
Oct 29 - 4:07 PM

Andrew Hammond suffered a lower-body injury during the first period of a 5-2 loss to the Flames on Friday.

The injury occurred with less than 20 seconds remaining in the first period. The severity of the injury is not yet known but this is a less than ideal situation for the Sens as the team is already without Craig Anderson because of a personal issue. If Hammond misses any time, Chris Driedger will be forced into action. The Sens do not play again until Sunday when they visit the Edmonton Oilers. Ottawa may have to recall Matt O'Connor if Hammond is going to miss some time.
