Sitting him out for any reason other than injury is defeating the purpose of him ever being there, even if he was skating in private all this time (which has not been reported).
Hammer will have to get into condition for the start of NHL action without the benefit of being in "game shape" condition.
This is my guess, it's just a case of being overly cautious
