Hamilton Lands In The AHL

Jeff Hamilton, bought out by Carolina this offseason, has found a home with the Chicago Wolves of the AHL. Before getting his break with the Blackhawks and then signing with the Canes, Hamilton was among the AHL's most profilic scorers, leading the league in goals with 43 in just 67 games with Bridgeport in 2003-04.

Hamilton's signing started off well for Carolina. He notched three points in the second game of the season and had 12 points in the Hurricanes' first 14 games. But a long pointless streak in November and December led to Hamilton being sent through waivers and his assignment to Albany. He played well late in the season after being recalled due to injuries, including scoring two goals against Atlanta on March 28. Still, with the team's forward depth, GM Jim Rutherford decided to buy out the final year of his contract.

Good luck to Jeff and hopefully he can one day make his way back to the NHL.
