Marc DesRosiers / USA TODAY Sports

Andrew Hammond made 42 stops in his first NHL start Wednesday night, leading the Ottawa Senators to a rousing 4-2 victory over the Montreal Canadiens

Hammond, 27, is the oldest goaltender in franchise history to earn a victory in his first career start, and also set a franchise record for saves in a winning debut. 

Hammond was thrust into the Senators' cage on an emergency basis after Robin Lehner suffered an undisclosed injury in Monday's loss to the Carolina Hurricanes

Despite his age, the Binghamton Senators starter only turned pro in 2013 after graduating from Bowling Green State University.
