Date format - SQL Query

How do I remove the slashes '/' from the date field, here's what I have:

CONVERT(varchar, aam.orderStatusDateField, 101)       

and this is what prints:  '02/14/2018'  

I need to print :  '02142018'

@Paul, thanks for the introducing Format() for date format, how do I combine it with CONVERT ; so essentially what would be the code for this using format()?

REPLACE(CONVERT(varchar, aam.orderStatusDateField, 101), '/', '')

@Paul Never mind, I got it. Thanks.
for the record: don't use convert..... just use format directly against the timestamp data, the returned value is a string
