Travis Hamonic (born August 16, 1990) is a Canadian professional ice hockey defenceman of Croatian ancestry[1][2] who is currently playing for the New York Islanders of the National Hockey League (NHL).

Playing career[edit]

With the Islanders during the 2013 playoffs.

Hamonic started his major junior career playing for the Moose Jaw Warriors of the Western Hockey League (WHL). He was selected by the New York Islanders in the 2nd round (53rd overall) of the 2008 NHL Entry Draft.

In his final junior season he was traded to the Brandon Wheat Kings before he turned professional for the 2010–11 NHL season. On November 24, 2010, after spending 19 games in the American Hockey League with affiliate the Bridgeport Sound Tigers, Hamonic made his NHL debut putting in a strong performance for his New York Islanders who lost in overtime Columbus Blue Jackets.[3] He later scored his first NHL goal on February 1, 2011, against Ondrej Pavelec of the Atlanta Thrashers and finished the season with an impressive rookie total of 5 goals and 26 points in 62 games.

In his first two NHL seasons, Hamonic was the only Islanders player to finish both seasons plus in plus-minus. In the midst of the 2012–13 NHL lockout, Hamonic returned to the Islanders affiliate in Bridgeport and posted 10 points in 21 games.

Following the 2012–13 shortened season, in which he helped the Islanders return to the playoffs, Hamonic became a restricted free agent where he was awarded with a seven-year, $27 million contract extension from the Islanders.
