Sens Ink Hammond To Three-Year Extension

News: Andrew Hammond signed a three-year, $4.05 million extension with the Senators on Wednesday.
Analysis: Andrew Hammond's second-half star turn was one of the best stories of the 2014-15 season, as he emerged from obscurity to go 20-1-2 with a 1.79 GAA and .941 save percentage over 24 appearances while leading the Senators to the postseason in the process. His improbable run came to an end in the first-round matchup with the Canadiens when Craig Anderson ultimately took back the goal, but it looks like the Senators have faith the 27-year-old can at least remain a serviceable backup. With Hammond and Anderson under contract for the next three seasons and prized Boston University goalie Matt O'Connor joining the organization a couple weeks ago, the Senators will probably attempt to trade away Robin Lehner (concussion) over the summer.

Sens' Hammond Up For Masterton

News: Andrew Hammond has been nominated for the Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy for the 2014-15 season, the Ottawa Citzen reports. The Masterton trophy is awarded to the player who represents sportsmanship, perseverance, and a dedication to hockey. Hammond is now the third Ottawa Senator nominated for an NHL player trophy this year joining teammates Mark Stone and Erik Karlsson.
Analysis: Andrew Hammond's miracle worker performance this year made the obscure goaltender into a household name. The Hamburglar's 14-1-1 regular season run vaulted the Senators into the playoffs, bumping out the perennial favorite Bruins. Hammond's disappearance from the playoffs in Game 3 versus Montreal does not diminish the young goaltender's growth and accomplishments as reinforced by the Masterton nomination. All signs point toward the free agent becoming a number one goalie for either the Senators or a team eager to have a proven workhorse goalie on their roster.

Sens' Hammond Serving As Backup Sunday

News: Andrew Hammond will not start Sunday's Game 3 matchup with the Canadiens, as Craig Anderson will be in the net instead, Wayne Scanlan of the Ottawa Citizen reports.
Analysis: Andrew Hammond set aside 39 of the 42 shots he faced in Game 2, but the game ended in a 3-2 overtime loss. With Hammond conceding seven goals en route to defeats in the first two games of the series, coach Dave Cameron decided to switch things up in goal Sunday. Should Anderson lead the Senators to the win, Hammond may be forced to remain in a backup role for Game 4.

Sens' Hammond Makes 39 Saves In Game 2 Loss

News: Andrew Hammond made 39 saves on 42 shots in Friday's Game 2 overtime loss to Montreal.
Analysis: While it was a good performance from Andrew Hammond, the overtime winner is one he will likely want back. After going on a crazy 20-1-2 run in the regular season, the 27-year-old has come back down to earth in his first two career NHL playoff games. Considering he got the Sens into the playoffs, Ottawa is likely to keep Hammond rolling despite the fact they're now trailing Montreal 2-0 in their best-of-seven round one series. Don't be shocked, however, if the team decides to turn to veteran Craig Anderson for Sunday's Game 3 in Ottawa.

Sens' Hammond Starting Friday

News: Andrew Hammond will start in goal Friday against the Canadiens, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.
Analysis: Andrew Hammond struggled in Game 1, conceding four goals on 39 shots in the 4-3 defeat. As Garrioch's report implies, another rough night for Hammond could mean an opportunity for Craig Anderson in Game 3.

Andrew Hammond

Sens' Hammond Stops 35 In Loss

News: Andrew Hammond allowed four goals on 39 shots in Wednesday's 4-3 loss to the Canadiens.
Analysis: Andrew Hammond wasn't quite as sharp as he was at the end of the regular season, but he's probably still the Sens starter for now. It wouldn't be shocking for the team to turn to Craig Anderson, though, if the Habs jump out to a 2-0 or 3-0 series lead.

Sens Going With Hammond For Game 1

News: Andrew Hammond will be between the pipes for Wednesday's first-round playoff opener against the Canadiens, TSN's Brent Wallace reports.
Analysis: Andrew Hammond's unlikely run to prominence was the primary reason why the Senators were able to snag a playoff spot in the first place, so it seems all but certain that coach Dave Cameron will stick with him in goal for the duration of the postseason.

Andrew Hammond, G, OTT Hammond Powers Sens To Postseason

Andrew Hammond

Hammond Powers Sens To Postseason

News: Andrew Hammond stopped 34 of 35 shots in Saturday's win over the Flyers to help the Senators secure their spot in the postseason.
Analysis: Andrew Hammond's Cinderella story will last at least another week, as the goalie's 20-1-2 mark over his 23 starts resulted in the Senators improbably earning a first-round date with the Canadiens. The goalie's out-of-nowhere star turn could very well come to an end against Carey Price, P.K. Subban, and company, but with no netminder in the league playing better than him at the moment, he'll nonetheless make for a tempting selection in playoff pools.

Andrew Hammond, G, OTT Sens Stick With Hammond With Playoff Hopes On Line

Andrew Hammond

Sens Stick With Hammond With Playoff Hopes On Line

News: Andrew Hammond will be between the pipes for Saturday's regular-season finale against the Flyers, Gord Wilson of TSN 1200 reports.
Analysis: The Senators can earn their spot in the playoffs with a win Saturday, and unsurprisingly, coach Dave Cameron will stick with the goalie who has been the primary reason the club remains in the hunt. Andrew Hammond's story has been nothing short of spectacular, as he's improbably gone from an AHL also-ran to one of the best netminders in the league since his Jan. 29 call-up. Though Craig Anderson (hand) is now healthy, Hammond hasn't given his coach a reason to turn away from him, as he'll enter the crease Saturday with a 19-1-2 record, 1.82 GAA, and .939 save percentage over 23 appearances. Fantasy owners should continue to stand by Hammond for the finale, just as the Senators will do.

Sens' Hammond Shuts Out Rangers For Crucial Win

News: Andrew Hammond stopped all 26 shots he faced Thursday against the Rangers for his third shutout of the season.
Analysis: It's a measure of revenge for Andrew Hammond and the Sens for a 5-1 blowout Mach 26, but perhaps only a small one -- Ottawa needed this game desperately, while the Rangers have already clinched the NHL's best record and were resting some players. Nonetheless, Hammond and the Senators got a crucial win, and the Hamburglar will almost certainly start the season finale Saturday in Philadelphia.

Sens' Hammond To Play Thursday

News: Andrew Hammond will be in the crease for Thursday's game against the Rangers.
Analysis: Andrew Hammond wasn't at his best Tuesday against the Penguins, when he allowed three early goals to put the Senators behind, but his teammates picked him up and guided him to a 4-3 comeback win in overtime. Regression hasn't caught up with Hammond yet, as he still sits on an astounding 18-1-2 record, 1.91 GAA, and .937 save percentage entering play Thursday. Though the Rangers represent a formidable adversary, they'll be resting several key players after clinching the Presidents' Trophy earlier this week. Fantasy owners shouldn't have any qualms about keeping the Hamburglar active.

Andrew Hammond

Hammond, Sens Come Back On Pittsburgh

News: Andrew Hammond gave up three goals on 28 shots, but was the beneficiary of a 4-3 comeback victory in overtime Tuesday against the Penguins.
Analysis: Andrew Hammond's looked merely mortal recently, but his somewhat mixed bag of rate stats hasn't done much to keep him out of the win column, as he's still 18-1-2 with the Senators. Still, his spectacular numbers from the beginning of his run are starting to normalize, as he's allowed three or more goals in five of his last nine starts.

Andrew Hammond

Sens Stick With Hammond On Tuesday

News: Andrew Hammond is slated to start against the Penguins on Tuesday, TSN's Steve Lloyd reports.
Analysis: The Sens, who are in must-win mode, will thus stick with Andrew Hammond on Tuesday, after he stopped 36 of 38 shots in Sunday's 3-2 shootout loss to the Maple Leafs. He'll take aim at a Pittsburgh squad that is in the midst of a three-game slide and clinging to a playoff seed (while two points ahead of Ottawa) heading into the final week of the regular season.

Sens' Hammond Stops 36 Shots In Loss

News: Andrew Hammond was outstanding Sunday, stopping 36 of 38 shots in a shootout loss to the Maple Leafs.
Analysis: While it was a great performance from Andrew Hammond, the Senators desperately needed that extra point. The 27-year-old falls to 17-1-2 on the season with a .939 save percentage and 1.86 GAA. He's been spectacular in his first 21 NHL games this season and is likely to get the start in the team's final three games, so make sure he's in your lineup.

Sens' Hammond Starting Sunday

News: Andrew Hammond will start Sunday's game against the Maple Leafs, TSN's Dean Brown reports.
Analysis: Coming off overtime victories Thursday and Saturday, Andrew Hammond will start for a third time in four days. Assuming Ottawa stays in the playoff chase, Hammond will likely also get the nod for the final three games of the season, starting with Tuesday's big matchup with the Penguins.

Sens' Hamburglar Wins Another

News: Andrew Hammond made 29 saves in a 4-3 overtime win over Washington on Saturday night.
Analysis: The Hamburglar has been a complete inspiration for his mates and his record now stands at 17-1-1. The Sens will owe him several dozen burgers if they do make the playoffs. Ride him while the push is on.

Sens Going With Hammond On Saturday

News: Andrew Hammond will be in the crease for Saturday's game against the Capitals, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.
Analysis: Andrew Hammond has looked strong as ever in his two starts since returning from a back issue, defeating the Red Wings and Lightning while stopping 44 of 46 shots. The Senators are desperately trying to catch the Bruins for the final wild-card spot in the Eastern Conference, and will likely continue stick with Hammond so long as he remains hot. He'll have his work cut out for him Saturday with the NHL's leading goal scorer, Alexander Ovechkin, in town, but Hammond has simply played to spectacularly to keep on the bench. He's an astounding 16-1-1 with a 1.80 GAA and .940 save percentage over his 19 outings.

Hammond, Sens Stifle Lightning

News: Andrew Hammond stopped 28 of 29 shots to come away with a 2-1 overtime win against the Lightning.
Analysis: Well, it looks like he's over that back ailment that bothered him against the Rangers in late March, as Andrew Hammond's returned with back-to-back one-goal outings in overtime wins. He'll probably be out there again Saturday when Washington comes to visit its fellow capital city.

Andrew Hammond

Sens Stick With Hammond

News: Andrew Hammond will start Thursday's game against the Lightning.
Analysis: Andrew Hammond, who was named the NHL's First Star for the Month of March after recording a 10-1-1 in 12 appearances to go along with a 2.09 GAA and .930 save percentage in that span, will face a banged up Tampa Bay squad on Thursday that has dropped three of its last four decisions.

Sens' Hammond Back To Burgling

News: Andrew Hammond stopped 16 of 17 and came away with a shootout win Tuesday in Detroit.
Analysis: He had the benefit of seeing his team dominate play throughout regulation -- the Sens outshot the Wings 13-5 in the first period, 12-4 in the second, and 8-7 in the third -- but it was a return to the ol' Hamburgling ways for the rookie goalie, who'd clearly been limited in his last start against the Rangers due to a back ailment. Looks like he's over it now.

Sens' Hammond Set To Play Tuesday

News: Andrew Hammond (back) will start Tuesday's game against the Red Wings.
Analysis: Andrew Hammond, who relayed Monday that he has been dealing with a back issue, will return to the Ottawa net for the first time since this past Thursday's game, in which he was pulled after giving up five goals on 22 shots. Hammond, who had been on quite a roll prior to that, will now look to help the Sens snap a three-game slide on Tuesday. While Hammond previously seemed to enjoy strong job security after winning 14 of his first 15 starts with the Senators, his declining performance of late and the subsequent return of Craig Anderson from a hand injury over the weekend could have Hammond looking over his shoulder.

Sens' Hammond (Back) Feeling Better

News: Andrew Hammond relayed Monday that he has been dealing with a back issue, Don Brennan of the Ottawa Sun reports.
Analysis: That said, Andrew Hammond says that he feels good enough to start again, though coach Dave Cameron has yet to decide whether he'll turn to Hammond or Craig Anderson for Tuesday's game against the Red Wings.

Sens' Hammond To Back Up Anderson Sunday

News: Andrew Hammond (lower body) is slated to back up Craig Anderson on Sunday against the Panthers, Brent Wallace of TSN reports.
Analysis: Andrew Hammond appears past the issue that kept him out of Saturday's game against Toronto, a notion supported by the Sens' assignment of fellow goalie Chris Driedger to the AHL on Sunday.

Sens' Hammond Won't Play Saturday

News: Andrew Hammond (lower body) will not be available for Saturday's game against the Maple Leafs, Gord Wilson of TSN 1200 reports.
Analysis: After appearing to be hobbled during his start Thursday against the Rangers, Andrew Hammond struggled with his mobility during Friday's practice and was absent entirely from Saturday's morning skate. While the loss of Hammond will be cushioned to a degree by the return of Craig Anderson (hand) to the net Saturday, the Senators could find themselves in a bind for Sunday, when the team will play the second half of a back-to-back Sunday against the Panthers. Unless Hammond is able to return Sunday, it would be less than ideal for the Senators to start Anderson two games in a row coming off injury, but perhaps even less favorable to turn to the inexperienced Chris Driedger, especially against a fellow wild-card competitor.

Sens' Hammond Limping At Practice

News: Andrew Hammond (undisclosed) limped out of the rink at Friday's practice, Wayne Scanlan of the Ottawa Citizen reports.
Analysis: Andrew Hammond looked ginger during Thursday's loss to the Rangers, and he was eventually pulled in the second period, after allowing five goals on 22 shots. If Hammond can't play in Saturday's game against Toronto, the Senators hope Craig Anderson (hand) will be ready. If neither Hammond nor Anderson can play, Chris Driedger will get the start.
