The 30-year-old goalie made one regular-season start with the Colorado Avalanche last season, making 31 saves in a 2-1 loss to the Philadelphia Flyers on March 28. He was 1-1 in two starts in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, including making 44 saves in a 2-1 win against the Nashville Predators in Game 5 of the Western Conference First Round.

Hammond was acquired by the Avalanche on Nov. 5 in a three-way trade with the Ottawa Senators and Nashville Predators involving forwards Matt Duchene and Kyle Turris. Signed by the Senators as a free agent on March 20, 2013, he began his NHL career by going 14-0-1 and was 20-1-2 with a 1.79 goals-against average, .941 save percentage and three shutouts during his rookie season in 2014-15.

Hammond is 27-15-6 with a 2.31 goals-against average, .923 save percentage and four shutouts in 56 NHL games (49 starts) with the Senators and Avalanche. He is 1-3 with a 3.00 GAA and .924 save percentage in five playoff games.

Hammond will earn $650,000 in the NHL or $300,000 in the American Hockey League.
