Hamonic re-signs for seven years with Islanders
The New York Islanders have re-signed defenseman Travis Hamonic to a seven-year, $27 million contract.

The New York Islanders on Friday re-signed defenseman Travis Hamonic to a seven-year contract. Terms of the deal were not released, but multiple media outlets reported the total value to be $27 million.

Hamonic, 22, was a restricted free agent. He had 10 points in 48 regular-season games, averaging 22:48 per game of ice time. He had one assist in six Stanley Cup Playoff games.

"We're building something special with the Isles," Hamonic told Newsday. "I would never have signed this long if I didn't truly believe that. Seven years is a long time -- to me, that's enough time to win a couple Stanley Cups. … I just couldn't be happier right now. I'm speechless. I want to get started now and show how special our team will be."

A 2008 second-round pick (No. 53) of the Islanders, Hamonic has 10 goals and 63 points in 180 games in his three NHL seasons, all with the Islanders.

One player does not make your team. One player can help your team, but one player does not make your team. We're not a bare-bones organization.
