Hamilton picked up a pair of assists in Saturday's loss to the Oilers.

EDGE Analysis

Hamilton logged 23:20 of ice time in the loss and now has 13 points in 26 contests. The 24-year-old is producing at a decent rate and playing on the power play, but he's been fairly inconsistent given his heavy ice time and prominent role. Hamilton can be a valuable fantasy blueliner in many settings, but prepare to deal with some stretches of minimal to no production.

Hamilton opened the scoring with a power-play goal in Saturday's win over Colorado.

EDGE Analysis

Hamilton had a dominant outing, firing seven shots on goal in 22:2 of ice time. He's been getting more engaged offensively of late and has racked up four points in his last six games. His steady ice time and power-play role make him a fairly reliable fantasy blueliner in most formats. Hamilton has three goals and 11 points through 23 contests and is trending in the right direction, so get him in your lineup.

Hamilton had a pair of assists in Monday's 4-1 win over Washington.

EDGE Analysis

These are the kind of performances Hamilton is capable of, but the reality is that they haven't been happening. He's got just 10 points this season and he's well below his pace from last season. He's still a contributor, but unless these performances become more frequent, owners need to temper their expectations a bit.

Hamilton scored a goal and recorded six shots during Tuesday's 5-3 loss to Vancouver.

EDGE Analysis

The tally snapped a five-game point drought and improved Hamilton to just two goals and five assists through 15 games for the campaign. Those are respectable numbers, but after posting a 50-point showing last season, it's not the level of production fantasy owners were expecting from the 24-year-old defenseman. However, it's not out of the question to chalk the mediocre start up to head coach Glen Gulutzan's questionable deployment of Hamilton and Calgary's overall offensive struggles. Additionally, this could prove to be a ripe buy-low spot.

Hamilton racked up a pair of assists in Tuesday's win over the Predators.

EDGE Analysis

Hamilton continues to produce at a steady rate for Calgary, managing one goal and five assists through nine contests. It's worth noting, however, the 24-year-old logged just 16:44 of ice time Tuesday and is yet to make an impact on the power play this season. The Flames are likely looking for a bit more out of Hamilton right now, but from a fantasy perspective, it's hard to complain too much about his point production. After a 50-point campaign in 2016-17, he remains one of the more valuable blueliners around.

Hamilton potted a pair of goals in Saturday's win over the Canucks.

EDGE Analysis

Hamilton was very involved in the offense Saturday, firing four shots on goal and being credited with the game-winning tally. After a 50-point season in 2016-17, Hamilton has emerged as a fantasy asset on the Flames' blueline. He's put up four points through six games thus far and logs steady minutes on the top defensive pairing with Mark Giordano. Use him well.

Hamilton has averaged just 17:34 of ice time (2:42 with the man advantage) through the past two games.

EDGE Analysis

Hamilton's usage throughout his tenure in Calgary has been curious to say the least, as he's frequently seen his minutes climb and drop for no apparent reason. Regardless, the 24-year-old defenseman remains an excellent fantasy asset and already has two assists through the first four games of the campaign. He hit the 50-point benchmark for the first time in his career last season, and posting a similar total in 2017-18 is well within reach. It'll just be more difficult if he's playing fewer than 20 minutes a night.

Hamilton had the best season of his young career with 13 goals, 50 points and 222 shots on goals.

EDGE Analysis

All three were personal bests for the fifth-year NHLer, who also amassed 64 PIM and five game-winning goals. Hamilton managed just a single assist in the Flames' Round 1 series against Anaheim, but there's no question that he has a bright future heading into his age-24 season as part of a solid back end in Cow Town.

Hamilton's goal Thursday against Nashville was his 12th of the season, tying a career high.

EDGE Analysis

He's already set a career high in assists and points this season, and with eight games to go he's bound to set a new mark in goals as well. Ever since being paired with Mark Giordano, Hamilton has played at another level, and the duo have become one of the league's best defensive pairs. Hamilton's been a consistent top-10 fantasy defenseman this season.

Hamilton had three assists in Saturday's 3-0 win over Winnipeg after being a game-time decision because of a lower-body injury. Two of the assists came on the power play.

EDGE Analysis

And with that, Hamilton has established a new career mark for points with 44; he did it in just 67 games. Hamilton is on pace for his first 50-point season at just 23. It won't be long before this emerging stud will be considered for a Norris trophy.
