March 2015 - San Jose Sharks trade Freddie Hamilton to the Colorado Avalanche for defenseman Karl Stollery. In his third AHL campaign, Freddie Hamilton has scored nine goals and 30 points in 49 games with Worcester, offering a solid two-way versatile game. It's expected that Freddie Hamilton will report to the Lake Erie Monsters. Brendan Ross


February 2015 - The 23-year-old continues to plug away at the AHL level, getting spot call-ups to the big club. But at this point it's clear that the Sharks will never use him in a top-six role and it's possible that he'll go no higher than the fourth line. There are several very good options in the system that the Sharks can turn to for offense and Hamilton isn't one of them. Dobber


October 2013 - Hamilton has been called up to play in the absence of Brent Burns.  He'll likely be sent back down once Burns comes back, but this is a good opportunity for him to get his feet wet and be better prepared for the next call-up.  Tim Graveline


September 2013 - Hamilton is one of the few young guys who truly has a chance to fight for a roster spot out who are not regular players with the big club already.  He will most likely go back to Worcester, but he does have a strong game and if he performs well, could be in for a chance at the opening left by Martin Havlat's injury.  Tim Graveline



February 2013 - Hamilton has had a decent rookie season for the Worcester Sharks. His scoring ability has shown promise with his 14 points in 46 games. This is a low points per game average, but keep in mind that he's still young and is learning how to play with the men. Expect him to be one of the points leaders in his sophomore season with Worcester. Tim Graveline



March 2012 – Freddie Hamilton is a hard-working player who can excel in several different roles on a team. He has the offensive touch to be a top six forward, but is also adept at the defensive side of the game. He took some time to adjust to the OHL game, but Hamilton has been in the top two in team scoring for the past two seasons. Hamilton also proved he could be an effective player under pressure playing for Team Canada’s World Junior squad this season. Hamilton’s biggest strength is his ability to battle hard for pucks and usually come out on top. Thomas Wall



Fantasy Outlook: D+

Hamilton’s offensive potential is limited at the NHL level, if he makes the Sharks roster it will likely be in a bottom six role.
