• In a season shortened by injury, Hamilton played just 26 games for the Saskatoon Blades, but managed to record 16 points (7-9--16) and shake off breaking his collarbone (twice) as well as separating his shoulder. He has since been cleared to play and will take part in Canada’s World Junior evaluation camp this summer.
• He is the son of Bruce Hamilton, a former Saskatoon Blades forward (1974-77) and current owner and general manager of the Kelowna Rockets – his father was selected by St. Louis Blues 81st overall in 1977.
• Hamilton was drafted in the second round (36th overall) in the 2006 Bantam WHL Draft and was a member of Team Canada at the 2009 Under-18 World Championships.
• His childhood hockey idol was Paul Kariya.
