Travis Hamonic (knee) skated before the team on Thursday morning.

It marked his first time on the ice since injuring his knee on Jan. 7. "I think a lot of the pain has gone out of him. I've been on that road with those knee injuries, and once you can get your mind free of that pain, you can really start pushing it," said interim coach Doug Weight. "We're going to see how he is through Saturday, and as long as nothing comes — I told him he's not going to like this very much — we're going to get aggressive, we have to get his lungs in shape and keep strengthening those legs. So, going to work at him hard. We need him back."

Travis Hamonic is very happy that he is still a New York Islander.

Hamonic requested a trade before the start of the 2015-16 season as there were family issues in his hometown of Winnipeg and he wanted to be closer to home. But when the season ended in May he rescinded his request as the problems at home apparently dissipated. "We’re obviously happy to have him here — he’s a competitor, he goes out and gives it his all every night and he’s a big part of the team," Josh Bailey said. "He dealt with [his situation last season] internally and it was by no means ever a distraction with the team, and that’s absolutely the right way to go about it. He handled it like a pro. This is the first time it’s been brought up in a long time." Hamonic is not having a good fantasy season with two goals and 12 points to go with a minus-14 rating. He does have 49 penalty minutes including three fighting majors. He has some value in pools that use penalty minutes but otherwise his fantasy value is negligible.
Jan 4 - 9:31 AM

Travis Hamonic had a pair of assists Friday versus Buffalo in a 5-1 win.

He has contributed six helpers in the past eight contests to give him 10 on the year. Hamonic has 12 points and a minus-13 rating in 30 appearances this year.

Travis Hamonic is last in the league with a minus-17 rating.

That needs to be taken with a grain of salt as plus/minus ratings aren't a great reflection of any individual players' performance. However, Hamonic and the Islanders as a whole are having a rough season. "Do I know it’s there? Sure," Hamonic said of his plus/minus rating. "Sometimes things are your fault, but I can’t change it. Fresh slate, play better. It’s a tough question to answer. I can’t go online and remove it. You’re stupid if you don’t see it, but like any stat, there’s a lot that goes into it."

Coach Jack Capuano has confirmed that Travis Hamonic will be back in the lineup on Monday night.

He isn't listed on injured reserve anymore and New York will dress seven defenders in the contest. The Islanders just lost Dennis Seidenberg, so Hamonic's return comes at a great time if you are looking on the bright side. He has five points, 17 hits and 24 blocks in 12 games this campaign.

It looks like Travis Hamonic (upper body) will play on Monday after only missing three games.

The Islanders will have to take him off the injured reserve list but Hamonic will miss only a week after the initial diagnosis stated he would be out for four-six weeks with a suspected broken thumb. There is nothing tougher than a hockey player. He had two goals and five points with 23 PIMs before the injury. Get ready to activate him if you normally would.
