Travis Hamonic has been averaging 22:08 minutes per game in January.
Even still, that's a light workload compared to how much the Islanders leaned on Hamonic last season. He was averaging 25:00 minutes per contest in 2013-14, but his playing time has come down to more reasonable levels thanks to the Islanders' defensive upgrades. Hamonic isn't a force offensively, but he does have 60 penalty minutes, 122 hits and 74 blocked shots in 36 contests in 2014-15. Jan 23 - 4:25 PM

Confirming an earlier report, Travis Hamonic will indeed return to the Islanders Friday night against the Red Wings after a six game absence.

Perhaps not quite a fantasy stud, Hamonic has put up six points, 46 blocks, 48 PIMs, and 66 hits through 21 games this season while averaging over 21 minutes a night. If you need a quality depth defenseman who'll do a bit of each of those categories, Hamonic may just be your man. He'll line up on their second unit with Calvin de Haan.
