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

I definitely think going back down helped me, I had a lot of confidence down there, I played a lot of minutes and I think that helped me a lot. With the 37 games up here, that gave me experience as well. I know what it takes to play in the NHL and now it's time for me to show that I'm capable of being a full-time NHL player.
