Scouting The 2014-’15 Binghamton Senators: Goaltending

2 of 3

#30 Andrew Hammond

Age: 26 (Feb 11, 1988)
Birthplace: Surrey, BC
Hgt/Wgt: 6’1 216 lbs
Acquired: Signed as a free agent in March of 2013.
Contract: $105,000/$720,000 – 2nd yr of 2 yr entry-level

Last Season: Binghamton Senators//Ottawa: 48 games 25 wins 19 losses, 3 SOL, 2.81 GAA, 0.910 SV% // 1 game, 34:31 min, 11 saves, 0.00 GAA, 1.000 SV%


  • Made his NHL debut playing in a back up role in relief of Lehner. Saved all 11 shots he faced in just under 35 minutes of work.
  • Has a tendency to go down early leaving room exposed up top one too many times. Lackadaisical relapse’s in letting in that lone soft one every other game.
  • Claimed the club’s 7th Player of the Year Award last season.
  • Improved as the season went on. Poor playoff performance in first round loss, but overall to be fair the club was flat in front of him.

Outlook: Hammond was forced into action quickly as Lawson was sidelined suffering from several ailment’s throughout the season. Depth goalie that has advanced learning the ropes along the way with guidance, only to have it collapse on him during the post season. Look for him to hunker down and play more consistently going forward despite Driedger’s presence. On the Radar that is a given for goaltender’s.
