"Things solidified themselves in that situation and I’m excited to head into camp with a clear head, clear heart and ready to rock. Just keep moving forward. I’m happy as hell to be here."

Travis Hamonic said the health of his family member has been "stabilized."

I love being an Islander, it's my home here, my family loves it, I love my teammates, this organization. Being an Islander is one of the best things I do with my life."

Travis Hamonic has reportedly rescinded his request to be traded.

Islanders coach Jack Capuano is hopeful that Travis Hamonic will continue to play for New York.

Hamonic requested to be traded and that became public knowledge back in November, but because the Islanders were competitive and Hamonic was a big part of that, any potential trade got tabled until the summer. Now that the Islanders have been eliminated by Tampa Bay, one would assume that Hamonic has played in his last game with the Islanders, but Capuano seems to be holding out hope that that's not the case. "I don’t necessarily think that right now we’re thinking Travis is not going to be with us next year," Capuano said. "I don’t know that, so I really can’t comment on that."

It's going to be painful for the Islanders to trade Travis Hamonic this summer, especially with the playoff run he's having.

While Hamonic hasn't been a major offensive contributor with two points in eight games, he has been a vital part of the team as illustrated by the 27:03 minutes he's been logging per game. "His all-around game, his size, his mobility, his ability to play in all situations; it’s very impressive. You can’t just find those guys," John Tavares said. Unfortunately Hamonic requested a trade early in the 2015-16 campaign because he wants to be closer to his home in Manitoba, so this will likely be the Islanders' last playoff run with him on their roster.
