Jan 7 - 11:27 AM

The Colorado Avalanche have recalled goaltender Andrew Hammond from the AHL.

With Semyon Varlamov out for the next two games, the Avalanche needed to recall a goaltender. Hammond will backup Jonathan Bernier before they go on a mandatory five-day break.
Jan 3 - 12:59 PM

Andrew Hammond has been assigned to Belleville of the AHL.

Hammond was up with the Avalanche because Semyon Varlamov was dealing with an illness, but he didn't see any action with the team. He did not see playing time in the NHL with Ottawa either before he was traded to Colorado. Hammond's demotion probably means Varlamov is ready to play again.

The Colorado Avalanche have summoned Andrew Hammond.

Hammond was acquired by the Avalanche from Ottawa as part of the three-way Matt Duchene trade. He's up with Colorado now because Semyon Varlamov is dealing with an illness. Look for Hammond to act as the backup goaltender on Wednesday.

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.

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.

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.
Tue, Feb 7, 2017 11:00:00 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.

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.
