Hammond recalled by Ottawa

BINGHAMTON, NY The Ottawa Senators of the National Hockey League announced today they have recalled goaltender Andrew Hammond on an emergency basis from its American Hockey League affiliate, the Binghamton Senators.

Hammond, 26, is currently tied for 10th among American Hockey League goaltenders with 17 wins this season. The 6-1, 216-pound netminder has a record of 17-12-3, in addition to a 3.02 goals-against-average and a .903 save percentage through 33 appearances as a rookie with the B-Sens this season. He recorded his first professional shutout in making 29 saves in a 8-0 home win over Worcester on Feb. 15.

Prior to turning professional, Hammond, a native of Surrey, B.C., recorded 30 wins and seven shutouts over four collegiate seasons with Bowling Green State University . In his final season with the Falcons, he recorded a 2.47 goals-against-average and a .917 save percentage while helping his team to the CCHA semifinals.

At the conclusion of his collegiate career, Hammond signed a two-year entry level contract with the Senators on March 20, 2013.
Ottawa returns to action when the club hosts the Detroit Red Wings on Thursday at 7:30 p.m.

Binghamton resumes play with back-to-back games Friday and Saturday in St. Johns against the IceCaps.  Both contests are slated to begin at 7:30p.m. NST (6:00p.m. EST).
