PHT’s Morning Skate takes a look around the world of hockey to see what’s happening and what we’ll be talking about around the NHL world and beyond.

Speaking of the Senators, they inked 25-year-old goaltender Andrew Hammond to an entry-level contract. Hammond had a 2.47 GAA and .917 save percentage in 29 games with Bowling Green State University this season. (Senators.nhl.com)

22-year-old forward Derek Stepan is starting to live up to his potential. On a Rangers’ squad that features plenty of top-end talent, Stepan ranks second on the team with 20 points in 29 contests, including five goals and six assists in his last 11 games. (New York Newsday)
