Ryan Hamilton: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Hamiton is proof-positive that hard work can pay off. This career minor leaguer -- and AHL captain -- was 26 when he finally made his NHL debut in March. He's been through several injuries, some of which were career threatening, but he has persevered. It's a great story, but it doesn't give him fantasy value. But we do love a good underdog story for sure.
Hamiltonís window on the NHL is closing. At 26 and with zero NHL minutes and flat-lining minor league production, he really has nothing that distinguishes him from all the other long-term minor leaguers. His only shot at breaking into the NHL may have to come with another team Ö a complete cellar dweller, not just a semi-cellar dweller like the Buds.
Hamilton has size but a history of injuries. And at 25, he's still waiting on his NHL debut. Sadly, it may never come.
Hamilton posted 15 goals and 10 assists in 65 games with the Houston Aeros and Toronto Marlies during the 2008-09 season. He was acquired by the Maple Leafs in the Robbie Earl deal in January, but doesn't project any value in 2009-10.
