According to Newsday, forward Michael Grabner and defenseman Travis Hamonic both should be ready for the Islanders season opener on Friday in New Jersey.
Grabner wasn't at practice with the team today because he is sick. Hamonic was injured in the teams pre season finale against Ottawa on Sunday and the team has been very quiet about his condition since then. Yesterday, Arthur Staple from Newsday reported that he was being treated for a concussion. Meanwhile, Brett Cygralis from the New York Post said he was meeting with a doctor last night about his shoulder. Hamonic was on the ice today with the team at practice in a black non-contact jersey.
