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.

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.

Andrew Hammond relieved Mike Condon in the second period of Sunday's 5-1 loss to the Ducks.

Unfortunately, it was already 3-1 by the time Hammond came in. He'd go on to stop 17 of 19 overall and miss his only shot while on the kill. Hammond was not saddled with the loss and he got to see his first NHL action since Oct. 28.

There is a chance that Andrew Hammond will get the start Sunday afternoon against the Ducks.

Mike Condon was in goal Saturday afternoon against the Kings and lost so the Sens could turn to Hammond for a rare start. Stay tuned for updates on this.

Andrew Hammond has been recalled by Ottawa.

Craig Anderson has taken another personal leave of absence to be with his wife, who is battling a rare form of throat cancer. Hammond could be the Senators backup netminder on Wednesday night versus San Jose if Anderson isn't back by then.

Andrew Hammond was re-assigned to Binghamton of the AHL Sunday morning.

It looks as if Craig Anderson will be returning from his leave of absence. Mike Condon is now Anderson's backup so Hammond is no longer needed at the NHL level.

Andrew Hammond has been assigned to AHL Binghamton.

He was put through waivers over the weekend and now he has officially be sent down the minors. Hammond lost his backup job to Mike Condon and was mostly dressing as the team's third goaltender.

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.

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.
