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.

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.

Travis Hamonic is happy that he's still with the New York Islanders.

"Reflecting on it during the summer, I was really appreciative of everyone’s respect, letting me deal with what was going on," Hamonic said. "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."

Hamonic wanted to be traded to be closer to home because of serious health concerns for a family member, but he rescinded that request now.

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Travis Hamonic has reportedly rescinded his request to be traded.

May 10 - 12:31 PM

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."
May 9 - 8:49 AM

Travis Hamonic registered an assist in the Islanders' 5-4 overtime loss to Tampa Bay on Tuesday.

Hamonic also logged a team-high 24:55 minutes of ice time as the Islanders continue to lean heavily on the defenseman. He has a goal and three points in nine playoff contests.
May 4 - 9:20 AM

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.
May 3 - 9:06 AM

The Islanders went right back to leaning on Travis Hamonic in his return from a knee injury.

Hamonic missed the final six games of the regular season, but he rejoined the Islanders for Game 1 of the first round on Thursday. He logged 24:52 minutes of ice time and registered an assist in the Islanders' 5-4 victory. Look for him to continue to get that kind of playing time throughout the postseason.
Apr 15 - 10:42 AM
