  • Wild's Andrew Hammond: Joins big club

  • Wild's Andrew Hammond: On taxi squad

    Hammond was reassigned to the taxi squad Sunday.

    Hammond has not appeared in an NHL contest this season. The 33-year-old was called up to the big club as an emergency backup in Cam Talbot's (lower body) absence. With the next Wild game scheduled for Friday, it is likely Talbot will recover in time for the game, hence the displacement of the netminder from the active roster.

  • Wild's Andrew Hammond: Recalled from taxi squad

    Hammond was elevated to the active roster Wednesday.

    Hammond will likely serve as an emergency backup to Kaapo Kahkonen in Cam Talbot's (lower body) absence. The 33-year-old hasn't seen the NHL ice since the 2017-18 season. The netminder has posted a 6-1-2 record with a 2.09 GAA and a .919 save percentage with AHL Iowa this season.

  • Wild's Andrew Hammond: Added to taxi squad

    Hammond was promoted to the Wild's taxi squad Monday.

    Hammond figures to serve as an emergency option if Cam Talbot (lower body) is unable to play in Thursday's matchup with Boston. Even if Talbot can't go, Kaapo Kahkonen figures to defend the crease while the 33-year-old Hammond would likely be added to the active roster in order to serve as the backup. Considering Hammond hasn't played in an NHL game since 2017-18, fantasy players shouldn't be expecting much out of him moving forward.

  • Wild's Andrew Hammond: Waived by Wild

    Hammond was waived by Minnesota on Thursday.

    Hammond hasn't appeared in an NHL contest since 2017-18, so he'll almost certainly pass through waivers unclaimed and head to AHL Iowa in the coming days. The 33-year-old netminder will probably spend most, if not all of the 2021-22 campaign in the minors.

  • Wild's Andrew Hammond: Signs two-way deal

    Hammond signed a one-year, two-way deal with Minnesota on Monday.

    Hammond hasn't seen any NHL action since the 2017-18 season with Colorado. He spent all of last season on the Wild's taxi squad and didn't suit up at the AHL or NHL levels. The 33-year-old owns a career .923 save percentage in 56 NHL appearances and should remain a depth option during the 2021-22 campaign.

    Hammond is day-to-day with an upper-body injury.

    Hammond cleared the NHL's COVID-19 protocol Monday, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.

  • Wild's Andrew Hammond: Added to protocols list

  • Wild's Andrew Hammond: Shifts to COVID-19 list

    Hammond was placed in the league's COVID-19 protocol Thursday, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.

    The Wild just got done with a COVID-19 scare the past few weeks, as Hammond is now the only player on the team in the protocol. The veteran will be unable to join the team on the road or practice until he's cleared. With Hammond sidelined, the team recalled Dereck Baribeau to handle the No. 2 role behind Kaapo Kahkonen for Thursday's game against Anaheim.
