Hamilton scored a pair of goals with five shots on goal in a 4-1 victory over the Hurricanes on Sunday. The 24-year-old didn't really do much scoring prior to January, but he now has a five-game point streak and is up to eight goals in 45 games. Hamilton is third on the Flames in ice time and should be in the 13-goal, 50-point neighborhood at the end of 2017-18.
Hamilton scored the overtime winning goal in Tuesday's 3-2 victory against Minnesota. While the third-year Flame has now scored in consecutive games, his six tallies and 12 helpers have him in line to fall well short of last season's 50-point showing. The scoring decline is all the more concerning because Hamilton is logging more minutes (21:15) and beginning more five-on-five shifts in the offensive zone (53.2) than in either of his first two seasons with Calgary. This could prove to be a buy-low spot, but banking on a considerable uptick in production might be a fool's errand.
Hamilton recorded a pair of helpers in Sunday's win over Vancouver. While he did contribute on offense, it's worth noting Hamilton logged just 16:54 of ice time in the victory -- his second-lowest total of the season. The 24-year-old had been held off the scoresheet in seven straight games prior to Sunday and now has 15 points (three goals) in 34 games on the season. The 24-year-old has great fantasy potential, but these inconsistent performances sure are frustrating. If you can deal with the droughts, Hamilton can be serviceable in some formats.
Hamilton picked up a pair of assists in Saturday's loss to the Oilers. Hamilton logged 23:20 of ice time in the loss and now has 13 points in 26 contests. The 24-year-old is producing at a decent rate and playing on the power play, but he's been fairly inconsistent given his heavy ice time and prominent role. Hamilton can be a valuable fantasy blueliner in many settings, but prepare to deal with some stretches of minimal to no production.
Hamilton opened the scoring with a power-play goal in Saturday's win over Colorado. Hamilton had a dominant outing, firing seven shots on goal in 22:2 of ice time. He's been getting more engaged offensively of late and has racked up four points in his last six games. His steady ice time and power-play role make him a fairly reliable fantasy blueliner in most formats. Hamilton has three goals and 11 points through 23 contests and is trending in the right direction, so get him in your lineup.
