Jeff Hamilton racking up frequent flyer miles

Jeff Hamilton started this season with a bang. He amassed 12 points in the first 14 games. He's slowed down considerably since then. He's now gone 17 games without a point. He's been in the lineup most nights, but he hasn't produced much lately.

Except a baby.

Early this morning, Jeff's wife gave birth to a baby boy. He went through a whirlwind of flights to be in Raleigh with his wife, then rejoin the team for tonight's game.

Here's the story about how he flew with the team to Atlanta on Thursday, only to immediately fly back to Raleigh. The baby came at 7:20 this morning, then he flew back to Atlanta. The proud and tired pop will be in the lineup for the visitors tonight.

“I got a half-hour of sleep on a hospital futon, but it was worth every minute of it,” Hamilton said.
