Sabres' Andrew Hammond: Reverts to AHL affiliate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Sabres reassigned Hammond to AHL Rochester on Monday.

Hammond was called up as insurance because Carter Hutton (undisclosed) was hurting ahead of Sunday's win over the Maple Leafs, but the latter was able to suit up, meaning Hammond will head back to the minors. The 32-year-old Hammond has recorded a .905 save percentage and 13-11-2 record in Rochester this year.

Sabres' Andrew Hammond: Called up to big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Sabres recalled Hammond from AHL Rochester on Saturday.

Carter Hutton and Jonas Johansson are already with the big club, so it's unclear why the Sabres recalled a third goaltender. It's unlikely the 32-year-old Hammond draws into a game during this NHL stint. He's produced a .905 save percentage and 13-11-2 record in the minors.

Sabres' Andrew Hammond: Sent back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Sabres reassigned Hammond to AHL Rochester on Monday.

Hammond backed up Jonas Johansson during Sunday's loss to the Ducks because Linus Ullmark (leg) is on IR and Carter Hutton was tending to a personal matter. It appears Hutton will be ready for Tuesday's game versus the Red Wings, so Hammond will likely stay in the minors barring an injury.

Sabres' Andrew Hammond: Gets the call
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Sabres recalled Hammond from AHL Rochester on Sunday.

With Carter Hutton away from the team while tending to a family matter, the team recalled Hammond under emergency conditions. The 31-year-old could make his first NHL start since 2017 on Sunday and will operate with Jonas Johansson as the only healthy goaltenders. Hammond has appeared in 27 AHL games this season, racking up a 2.57 GAA along with a .904 save percentage.

Sabres' Andrew Hammond: Joining Buffalo organization
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hammond signed a one-year, $700,000 contract with the Sabres on Monday.

Hammond figures to serve as organizational depth for the Sabres, as Carter Hutton and Linus Ullmark are on hand at the NHL level. The Hamburglar has mostly been limited to an AHL role, though he actually has a very solid 2.31 GAA and .923 save percentage over 56 NHL appearances, mostly buoyed by a tremendous run with Ottawa in 2014-15.

Wild's Andrew Hammond: Placed on waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hammond was waived by the Wild on Saturday, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.

In the event that Hammond clears waivers, he'll head to AHL Iowa to keep his conditioning up to par and serve as an emergency call-up option should an injury or unprecedented string of poor performances beset Devan Dubnyk or Alex Stalock at the top level.

Wild's Andrew Hammond: Beaten twice in OT loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hammond yielded two goals on 14 shots in Minnesota's 4-3 overtime loss to the Avalanche on Friday.

This one ended when Hammond was beaten in overtime by Avalanche forward Mikko Rantanen. The 30-year-old netminder played the second half of the game, taking over for Alex Stalock. Hammond is battling Stalock for the right to back up the team's No. 1 puck stopper, Devan Dubnyk.

Wild's Andrew Hammond: Will start against Jets on Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hammond will tend twine versus the Jets in Monday's preseason opener, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.

Hammond will have first dibs on setting the tone this preseason as he begins his battle with Alex Stalock to be Devan Dubnyk's backup in 2018-19. The 30-year-old played just one game for the Wild last season, recording a loss despite steering away 31 of 33 shots. Expect his battle with Stalock to endure the preseason.

Wild's Andrew Hammond: Signs one-year pact
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hammond will compete for the backup job in Minnesota after agreeing to a one-year, two-way deal Sunday, Sarah McLellan of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

There should be little doubt that the Wild's No. 1 will be Devan Dubnyk, but who will serve as the backup will be decided during training camp. The 29-year-old Hammond will battle Alex Stalock for the backup role, with the loser heading to AHL Iowa to be the starter.

Avalanche's Andrew Hammond: Yields five goals in elimination game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hammond allowed five goals on 37 shots in a 5-0 loss to the Predators on Sunday. With the victory, the Predators won the series 4-2.

After a terrific Game 5 performance where he tied a franchise record with 44 saves in a regulation playoff game, Hammond unfortunately showed everyone why he only made one start this season. The Predators scored four goals on 24 shots in the first two periods, which turned this one into a laugher. Two of those goals were of the "leaky" variety, as they snuck under the arm of Hammond. And that came after Hammond caught an early break with a disallowed goal to keep the game scoreless about midway through the first period. Then again, Hammond could have been perfect Sunday and the the Avalanche still wouldn't have won since they didn't muster up any offense.

Avalanche's Andrew Hammond: Back in starter's net
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hammond will be the home starter for Game 6 against the Predators on Sunday, reports.

Despite not having a playoff start since 2015, Hammond kept the Avalanche's season alive with an electrifying 44-save (one goal) performance in Game 5 to make the series 3-2. Hammond will likely need another stellar performance Sunday to even up the series, but he's shown that the stage isn't too big for him.

Avalanche's Andrew Hammond: Makes 44 saves in Game 5
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hammond turned aside all but one shot to keep his team's season alive, earning a 2-1 win over Nashville on Friday in Game 5.

Hammond hadn't started a playoff game since 2015, but he was brilliant when the Avalanche needed him most. He didn't give up a single goal off a stick, as the Predators' one tally came off Nick Bonino's skate. This performance was anything but expected, though it was a welcome sight and a major payoff for anyone who took a chance on the Hamburglar.

Avalanche's Andrew Hammond: Starting Game 5
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hammond will guard the goal when the Avalanche visit the Predators for Game 5 on Friday.

Hammond stepped in for Jonathan Bernier after he exited with a nagging lower-body issue, stopping each of the eight shots he faced to keep the Avalanche within striking distance in Game 4. The loss dropped Colorado to a 3-1 deficit in the series, but Hammond will do his best to keep the team alive Thursday in Smashville. Without Bernier available for the contest, Spencer Martin will likely serve as the backup.

Avalanche's Andrew Hammond: Holds Predators scoreless in relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hammond entered in the third period following Jonathan Bernier's (lower body) exit because of injury, making eight saves on eight shots in a 3-2 loss to Nashville in Game 4 of the Western Conference quarterfinals Wednesday.

Hammond likely earned himself a shot at taking down the Predators in Game 5 by keeping the Avalanche's deficit from getting any worse. He's a capable backup and lower-body injuries like the one Bernier suffered are not usually the type that allow a recovery within two days. Odds are, he'll have the unenviable task of trying to stop the Predators -- and keep the season alive for Colorado -- in Game 5.

Avalanche's Andrew Hammond: Makes strong showing in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hammond turned aside 31 of Philadelphia's 33 shots, taking a 2-1 loss to the Flyers on Wednesday.

This night could have gone badly for Hammond after he gave up two goals in the first period, but he bounced back and held the Flyers at bay for the rest of the night. That said, this probably won't convince the Avalanche to give him another start; Hammond's call-up was just temporary. He can be left off rosters for now.

Avalanche's Andrew Hammond: First NHL start of season Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hammond will make his first NHL start of the 2017-18 season Wednesday against the Flyers at the Pepsi Center, Marc Moser of Altitude Sports 950 reports.

Hammond enjoyed some success with the Senators in 2014-15, posting an impressive 20-1-2 record to go with his 1.79 GAA and .941 save percentage. The campaign pushed him into the limelight early in 2015-16 but struggles led to his eventual benching and a demotion. He only made eight appearances in goal last season and has yet to do so this year, but that dry spell will come to an end Wednesday. While it will likely be a brief stint between the pipes for him, Hammond will attempt to make the best of it versus a Flyers club averaging 3.07 goals per game in March.

Avalanche's Andrew Hammond: Recalled from minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hammond (head) was promoted from AHL San Antonio on Wednesday.

Hammond could find himself immediately thrust into action, as Jonathan Bernier (infection) is out and starter Semyon Varlamov (illness) may not be available. In the even Varlamov can't play, it will be either the 28-year-old Hammond or the youngster Spencer Martin between the pipes versus Philadelphia on Wednesday. Hammond was previously dealing with a head injury, but is no longer listed on injured reserve per the NHL media site.

Avalanche's Andrew Hammond: Hits injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hammond (head) was placed on injured reserve Sunday, per the NHL's official media site.

Hammond sustained this injury while sitting on the bench Wednesday, apparently when a wild stick hit him. With backup Jonathan Bernier (concussion) expected to return from injured reserve Tuesday, Hammond will likely be sent back to AHL Belleville after he recovers.

Avalanche's Andrew Hammond: Dealing with head injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hammond sustained a head injury in Monday's win over Vancouver, Mike Chambers of The Denver Post reports.

According to the report, Hammond was injured when a stray stick hit him while he was sitting on the bench. The former Senator hasn't featured in an NHL game since 2016-17 and in 18 AHL games this campaign, he's 8-6-2 with a 3.34 GAA and .900 save percentage. Colorado will provide additional information on Hammond's recovery when it becomes available, though it remains to be seen how the organization intends to deploy him when he returns to health.

Avalanche's Andrew Hammond: Briefly sent down in paper move
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hammond was added to AHL Belleville's roster Monday via a paper transaction before being recalled the same day, per the official AHL transaction log.

The move was to ensure Hammond was eligible for the AHL playoffs, but he'll stick with Colorado for the time being. Since the 30-year-old will likely be bumped down a level when Jonathan Bernier (head) returns, it was important to ensure he had somewhere to play for the remainder of the season once Bernier has a clean bill of health.
