Freddie was born and raised in Toronto, Ontario to Doug Hamilton and Lynn Hamilton (née Polson), both members of Team Canada for the 1984 Summer Olympics (rowing and basketball, respectively). As a young talented hockey player for the Toronto Marlboros, At the time he attended Crestwood Preparatory College. He and his brother Dougie Hamilton played with the Marlboros until the 2008 Ontario Hockey League (OHL) draft where Freddie went 14th overall to the Niagara IceDogs. Freddie was the first ever draft pick in the Niagara IceDogs history.[1] This forced the Hamilton family to move to St. Catharines, Ontario.

Freddie graduated from Governor Simcoe in 2010. Hamilton now attends Brock University part-time.

After featuring in a solitary game with San Jose he was reassigned to Worcester and in 49 games produced 9 goals and 30 points before on March 2, 2015, he was traded by the Sharks to the Colorado Avalanche in exchange for Karl Stollery.[2] On March 19, 2015, Hamilton scored his first NHL goal in the Colorado Avalanche 5-2 victory over the Arizona Coyotes.

Before the start of the 2015–16 NHL season on October 4, 2015, he was traded by the Colorado Avalanche for a conditional seventh round pick to the Calgary Flames, the same team which his brother Dougie was newly traded to.[3]
