Chris Hamilton

Head Equipment Manager

One of the long-standing members of the Ottawa 67’s, Chris Hamilton has been with the team since 2009. He joined as an assistant then and became the Head Equipment Manager in 2012.

He was part of the Hockey Canada team during 2013 U18 World Championships in Sochi, Russia where Canada won the gold medal. He was also part of the 2014 & 2016 Ivan Hlinka Memorial Cup U18 Tournament where Canada won the gold medal and had a fifth place finish respectively.

At the 67s, Hamilton spends long, long hours ensuring everything is ship shape for the players and for the game.

He grew up playing hockey as a goalie (idolising Chris Osgood) and understands the emotions that the 67’s players go through. This helps him connect with the players while performing his chief role as the equipment manager.

From being a skate sharpener and sewing man to a shoulder for the players when things go south, ‘Hammy’ is an vital member of the 67’s bench. He was awarded the 67s’ Team MVP for the 2012-13 season.
