Islanders activate Hamonic from IR
The New York Islanders have activated defenseman Travis Hamonic from injured reserve after he missed 12 games with a concussion.

The New York Islanders activated defenseman Travis Hamonic from injured reserve Friday and should have him in the lineup when they host the Colorado Avalanche on Saturday in their final game before the Olympic break.

Hamonic has missed 12 games since sustaining a concussion Jan. 12 against the Dallas Stars.

The 23-year-old has one goal, eight assists and a minus-3 rating in 47 games. He is second on the team in average ice time at 24:57 per game and faces the third-toughest competition of any player on the team, according to BehindtheNet.ca's quality of competition chart.

Quote of the Day

You don't see many. The [Drew] Doughtys, the [P.K.] Subbans, those are guys that create offense from the back and then on top of that ability, the size that he has. In the West you play against some pretty big players, and being able to clear the crease and contain the [Ryan] Getzlafs and the [Corey] Perrys and [Anze] Kopitars and players like that, we're excited about him going back there.
