Goalkeeper Andrew Hammond is reportedly close to a deal with the Minnesota Wild.
This is what the sports site The Athletic said on Tuesday night.
Training general manager Bill Guerin would attempt to find an insurance policy for Alex Stalock, who could be injured when training camp opens. According to digital media, the 33-year-old has yet to resume skating.
Coming back to Hammond, he hasn’t played in the National Hockey League since the 2017-18 season. Last year, he kept the net for the Rochester Americans in the American Hockey League. In 33 games, he maintained a 2.53 goals against average and a .908 save rate.
The man nicknamed the “Hamburglar” enjoyed the best moments of his career with the Ottawa Senators in 2014-15. In 24 games, he has maintained a 20-1-2 record, a 1.79 goals against average and .941 save rate. Hammond had greatly helped the “Senses” take part in the playoffs.
Unfortunately for him, he has never been able to repeat this type of performance.
