Observations

July 2019 – Hathaway signed a four-year, six million dollar contract with the Washington Capitals. – Joel Henderson

April 2019 – Garnet Hathaway has found his NHL groove. Many players came out of the lineup near the end of the year and into the playoffs but he was not one of them. He kills penalties, plays hard, and adds a little bit of skill to the equation. He could still be a decent find in very deep leagues. Don’t expect him to move up and down the lineup.. but he’ll be in that lineup. – Joel Henderson

Dec 2018 – Hathaway has managed to find a consistent fourth line role on the team. While it might seem to a casual fan that Garnet could be the one sitting most nights, Flames seem to like his physicality and the way he kills penalties. The press box gets filled with a more offensive body, which speaks to the consistency of Hathaway. He’s managed to gather almost three hits per game which can help some really deep multi-cat leagues. – Joel Henderson

Oct 2018 – Hathaway will begin the year as an extra forward with Calgary in the NHL. That’s about it. His training camp was fine and the amount of NHL games he will play in the future is a giant question mark. He offers grit, a competitive heart, but not a lot a high level of natural offensive ability. He makes things happen by sheer will. – Joel Henderson

April 2018 – Hathaway didn’t enter the NHL with lofty fantasy projections. In a 40 game in the months of January through to the end of March, Hathaway has five points. Depth scoring was an issue plaguing the Flames this season and Hathaway sure wasn’t a solution. Calgary tried to gather some toughness as their depth so I wouldn’t be shocked to see them re-sign the RFA, which is still quite the accomplishment for expectations set out a few years ago. He isn’t a tremendous goal scorer or playmaker but his energy and solid play make him a depth peice better than most. He’s shown he can be quite the effective complementary peice on a top AHL line. As far as fantasy, if you need some penalty minutes and hits, he is an option. – Joel Henderson

 

Dec 2017 – Hathaway had been called up due to an injury and there seemingly wasn’t much reason to use him as anything except an “energy player” on the bottom line. Lucky for him, Calgary doesn’t mind inserting an energy player on really any line except Backlund’s. Hathaway has taken over Jagr’s spot on the 3rd line but could continue to move up and down. He has been effective enough to not be immediately sent down. That’s for sure. – Joel Henderson

 

Oct 2017 – With Calgary adding Tanner Glass on a PTO, Hathaway has been sent down the minors. Additions of Glass, Hrivik, Lazar, with Freddie Hamilton also hanging around means that the game of leap frog played last year by Garnet just became twice as tough. Unless your league is incredibly deep and you MIGHT need MAYBE hits in the future, then you have no business hanging onto Hathaway at this point. There’s about 3 jobs available for 8 guys and it’s a long shot for Hathaway to be one of them.  – Joel Henderson

 

Mar 2017 – Garnet is the depth forward that you hope to have in your system. He’s been used multiple times to spark a drowning Calgary offense by simply caring and skating. With the addition of Curtis Lazar, Garnet will probably not see anymore time in the NHL unless injuries occur. He continues to show he is a very useful depth pro. – Joel Henderson

 

Oct 2016: He continues to make it difficult to cut him. This is a big change from a year ago, as Hathaway was sent down to Stockton. He was legitimately disappointed. As hard working forwards go, this is Calgary’s second Josh Jooris. Hathaway will put up as many points as he gets allowed to as he will be given the blue collar minutes when he returns to Calgary. I say when, because Calgary waived Brandon Bollig, leaving a larger slice of hope for young Hathaway. He tallied three points in 14 games in 2015/16, and I’d expect he will see at least that same amount of action. – Joel Henderson

 

Feb 2016: Garnet Hathaway has developed as somewhat of a fan favorite. He spent his college career with Brown University and continued to increase his offensive numbers, epsecially in his third season and helped drive Brown to a championship game. He has been described as a great competitor, a locker room gem, and one who understands hard work goes a long way both on and off the ice. After signing an AHL contract with the Flames, he earned himself a true two year ELC at the end of the 2014/15 season. He becomes an RFA at the end of 2016/17. 

Garnet Hathaway is a hardworking two way forward. He earned his contract by creating turnovers in the neutral zone, forechecking hard, and making sure he is in proper positioning defensively. He has shown at the AHL level that he can certainly contribute offensively but it is mostly through those forechecking efforts. Flames have had some part success stories with similar players (Bouma, Jooris) so it is certainly possible Hathaway can continue to contribute in a similar role in the NHL, however for fantasy hockey owners, they will be looking towards his hits and penalty minutes first. He should be considered a depth player who can contribute from time to time. The fact he can play the RW will see him gain opportunities that others may not have. – Joel Henderson
