Former New Jersey Devils Goaltender Retires

Goaltender Andrew Hammond is hanging up the skates as the 'Hamburglar' has decided to retire from professional hockey. He took to Twitter on Monday to make the announcement.

At 34 years old, Hammond is ready for the next chapter of his life and leaves the game after making a solid impact throughout several different franchises. The unfortunate news here is the fact Hammond admitted an ankle injury he suffered back in 2021-22 with the Montreal Canadiens is essentially the reason why he's retiring.

Hammond played four games in Montreal and picked up three impressive wins. He was then dealt to the New Jersey Devils and this season spent time with the Chelyabinsk Traktor of the KHL, playing in two games.

The best part of his career came back with the Ottawa Senators where his magical run took the NHL by storm. He spent four seasons with the Sens and Hammond was at his very best in 2014-15 when he posted a sensational 20-1-2 record after getting called up from the AHL. It helped propel the Sens to the Stanley Cup Playoffs, a memory that is near and dear to his heart. We wish the Hamburglar nothing but the best in the next chapter of his life.
