Hammond out ‘at least two weeks’ with groin injury

The Ottawa Senators will be without goalie Andrew Hammond for “at least two weeks” due to the groin injury he suffered yesterday in practice.

“It’s not a tear or anything, but it’s a pull and we have to be careful with it,” GM Byran Murray told the Ottawa Sun.

Rookie Matt O’Connor, signed this summer as a college free agent, will replace Hammond as Craig Anderson‘s backup.

The Sens play three games in four nights starting Thursday, so O’Connor could see his first NHL start soon.

Here’s how the Sens’ goalies have performed in the preseason:
