Ottawa Senators sign goaltender Andrew Hammond to a two-year contract

OTTAWA - The Ottawa Senators have signed free-agent goaltender Andrew Hammond to a two-year entry-level contract.

Hammond posted a 10-15-3 record with a 2.47 goals-against average and a .917 save percentage in 29 games with the NCAA's Bowling Green Falcons this past season.

The native of Surrey, B.C., earned a record of 30-68-13 in 111 games over four seasons at Bowling Green and attended the Chicago Blackhawks' prospect camp in 2012.

Hammond will report to the American Hockey League's Binghamton Senators.

Quote of the Day

You don't see many. The [Drew] Doughtys, the [P.K.] Subbans, those are guys that create offense from the back and then on top of that ability, the size that he has. In the West you play against some pretty big players, and being able to clear the crease and contain the [Ryan] Getzlafs and the [Corey] Perrys and [Anze] Kopitars and players like that, we're excited about him going back there.
