Hamilton's goal Thursday against Nashville was his 12th of the season, tying a career high. He's already set new career marks in assists and points this season, and with eight games to go, he's likely to set a new mark in goals as well. Ever since being paired with Mark Giordano, Hamilton has played at another level, and the duo has become one of the league's best defensive pairs.
Hamilton (undisclosed) skated in pregame warmups Saturday against the Jets, Kristen Odland of the Calgary Sun reports. Hamilton was considered a game-time decision, and it's highly unlikely he won't play since he skated in warmups. That should make fantasy owners happy, as Hamilton has tallied 10 goals and 41 points, and the Jets have allowed 3.16 goals per game.
Hamilton had three assists in Saturday's 3-0 win over Winnipeg after being a game-time decision because of a lower-body injury. Two of the assists came on the power play. And with that, Hamilton has established a new career mark for points with 44; he did it in just 67 games. Hamilton is on pace for his first 50-point season at just 23. It won't be long before this emerging stud will be considered for a Norris trophy.
Hamilton (undisclosed) will be a game-time decision for Saturday's matchup in Winnipeg, Sean Reynolds of SportsNet.ca reports. There is still no confirmation on what exactly is keeping Hamilton out, and it's still unclear whether he will play Saturday. If Hamilton sits, it will leave a lot of fantasy points on the table as he is in Calgary's top defensive rotation as well as its power play. Stay tuned around game time to see if he will make the lineup.
Hamilton left Thursday's game in the second period and didn't come out of the locker room for the third, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 reports. It's currently unclear exactly what is ailing the blueliner, but video evidence makes it seem like he might've been cut by a skate on his lower leg. Any significant absence would be a big blow to Hamilton's owners, as he's in the midst of a career year with 41 points through 66 games. More information about his injury and status for Saturday's game in Winnipeg should come out either after Thursday's tilt or following Friday's practice.
