Hamonic Agrees To Terms on Seven-Year Deal
Islanders’ Defenseman Signs Long-Term Contract
The New York Islanders announced today that Travis Hamonic has agreed to terms on a seven-year deal.
Hamonic, 22, scored 10 points (three goals, seven assists) in 48 games this past season with the Islanders. The St. Malo, MB, native also made his Stanley Cup Playoffs debut, recording one assist in six games during the Islanders’ Eastern Conference Quarterfinal series.
“We are excited to come to terms with Travis, who is an important part of our young core,” General Manager Garth Snow said. “He has shown that he can play important minutes, in any situation and we’re thrilled that he’ll be an Islander for seven more years.”
In three years with the Islanders, Hamonic has totaled 10 goals and 50 assists (60 points) in 183 regular-season games. The Islanders selected Hamonic in the second round, 53rd overall, of the 2008 NHL Draft. He played in the Western Hockey League for four seasons with the Moose Jaw Warriors and Brandon Wheat Kings.
On the International stage, Hamonic won a silver medal with Team Canada at the 2010 World Junior Championships. He won gold the previous year with Canada at the Under-18 World Junior Championships.
