Today, Islanders defenseman Travis Hamonic is celebrating his 24th birthday.
Last season for the Islanders, Hamonic had 18 points in 69 games. Prior to the start of last season, Hamonic signed a 7 year extension with the Islanders worth 27 million dollars so Hamonic is locked in for the long haul here.
With the question marks surrounding the Islanders defense heading into camp, they are really depending on Hamonic continuing to develop his game and become better on both sides of the play. That happening will go a long way in ensuring the Islanders return to the playoffs in the final season at the Coliseum after last seasons major step backwards.
We here at savetheisles would like to wish Hamonic a very Happy Birthday.
