Former Falcon Andrew Hammond knew he’d get another shot in the NHL. He made the most of his opportunity Wednesday, helping the Ottawa Senators earn a 4-2 win against the Montreal Canadiens in his first career NHL start.

The BC native was constantly challenged, stopping 13-16-13 respective shots by period. The 42 save performance earned Hammond “First Star” honors and could lead to a second consecutive start Saturday if Robin Lehner and Craig Anderson remain out of the lineup with injuries.

With the win Hammond has a 1-0-0 record in three games in the the NHL with a 2.08 GAA and .933 save percentage. Hammond is the first Falcon to start an NHL game since Mike Liut did it for the Washington Capitals during the 1991-1992 NHL season.
