He was injured in last Thursday's game against Washington. The Islanders' defense corps was already without Johnny Boychuk because of a shoulder injury.
Jan 12 - 5:24 PM

Travis Hamonic (lower body) won't play in Saturday afternoon's game against the Philadelphia Flyers.

Hamonic isn't gifted offensively, but he's still a key member of the Islanders blue line. The 25-year-old has averaged almost 24 minutes of ice time per game this season. He has two goals and eight points in 41 games this season. Scott Mayfield will take his spot in the lineup.

The chances of Travis Hamonic being traded are becoming more remote in the foreseeable future.

The injury to Johnny Boychuk doesn't help the situation. Hamonic will not comment on his trade status and request any more so it's tough to get any information. "I haven’t really thought about it, to be honest with you," Hamonic told Newsday on Saturday. "I know that’s going to be hard for people to believe, but it’s the truth. I’m an Islander and I’m proud to be an Islander. It’s a big loss to not have Johnny out there but it doesn’t change anything for me personally." Hamonic has only two goals and five assists this season but his value is really as a hockey player.
Jan 3 - 10:48 AM

Travis Hamonic has continued to play a big role with the Islanders since his trade request was made public.

In fact, Hamonic has logged over 25 minutes in three of his last four games. He wants to be dealt to a Western Canada team for family reasons, but the Islanders will have a hard time dealing him given how much they have come to rely on his services. Hamonic has previously stated that he's willing to stick with the team through the full 2015-16 campaign though if they can't accommodate his request, so perhaps that's what will end up happening.

Islanders captain John Tavares is standing by Travis Hamonic as the defenseman waits to be traded.

"Being athletes, I think you learn to accept a lot of criticism, you learn to be hard on yourself and what it takes to be successful," Tavares said. "But at the same time, you're human beings and everyone deals with a lot of things. We're there to support him, we're there for him and make sure we let him know that. Just focus on playing and I'm sure that's what he wants to do and that's what we want to do to keep things going here." Hamonic requested a trade due to a desire to play in Western Canada, which would put him closer to home. He's emphasized that this isn't about the Islanders organization and he's willing to play out the full campaign with them if they can't fulfill his trade request.

Although Travis Hamonic wants to be traded, it doesn't sound like he's trying to force the Islanders hand.

Hamonic is willing to spend the full season with the Islanders if needed. Of course, it would be shocking if he refused to play, but the fact that he said it still counts for something. Hamonic wants to be traded to a team that's closer to home, which for him means that he wants to be dealt to a squad in Western Canada.

Travis Hamonic has confirmed that he's asked to be traded.

Hamonic made it clear that he's made the request for personal reasons as opposed to a rift with the team. "I've been treated like gold ever since they drafted me," he said. That's in line with the earlier report stating that he wants to be closer to home, which for him means that he'd prefer to be moved to a team in Western Canada.
Thu, Nov 19, 2015 12:04:00 PM

Travis Hamonic reportedly requested to be traded before the season started for family reasons.

The Islanders have been trying to fulfill his request. Hamonic wants to be closer to home, so he would prefer to play in Western Canada with Winnipeg, Edmonton, Calgary or Vancouver. He might expand to other Western cities to help out trade process, but GM Garth Snow won't give Hamonic away for nothing.

New York Islanders defenseman Travis Hamonic revealed Tuesday that a torn left knee ligament forced him to miss the team's first-round playoff series against the Washington Capitals.

Hamonic disclosed the nature of the injury while cleaning out his locker Tuesday, a day after the Islanders were eliminated in a 2-1 loss in Game 7. The injury did not require surgery. Hamonic was hurt in a 3-1 win at Pittsburgh, in the second-last game of the regular season. Defenseman Calvin de Haan also revealed he missed the final two games against the Capitals after spraining his left shoulder in Game 5.

Travis Hamonic (leg) will not need surgery.

Hamonic thinks he might have even been able to rejoin the Islanders in 10-12 days if New York had lasted that long. In other words, he should be fine for the 2015-16 campaign. He had five goals and 33 points in 71 contests.

Defenseman Travis Hamonic (leg) will not be back in the lineup for the New York Islanders on Tuesday.

There is no timetable for Hamonic's return, either. But with the Isles' up 2-1 in the series, and Ovechkin nearly fully neutralized, perhaps Hamonic can take his time to fully recover.
