RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Hammond will enter 2014-15 as the number one netminder for AHL Binghamton once again, and with Craig Anderson and newly-signed Robin Lehner above him in the NHL, he won't get recalled unless there's an injury. Considering he wasn't exactly stellar in the minors last season (2.81 GAA, .910 save percentage in 48 appearances), it's probably not worth monitoring his play too much.
Hammond will make the jump to the pros this season, after spending the last four years playing college hockey for Bowling Green State University of the CCHA. The young goaltender put up decent stats during his senior season, posting a save percentage of .917 and a 2.47 GAA. Nevertheless, he'll need to prove himself in the AHL before ever getting a chance to make an impact in the NHL.
