Travis Hamonic Rescinds Trade Request

One may recall that it was revealed earlier in the season that Hamonic had requested a trade due to personal reasons.

Hamonic was drafted by the Islanders in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft with the 53rd pick in the 2nd round. He broke into the team in 2010-11 and has since been a staple on their blueline, scoring 114 points in 342 games and one assist in six playoffs games. In 2014-15, he put up a career high five goals and 33 points while averaging 21:47 TOI. This past season he five goals and 21 points.

The right-handed defenseman signed a seven-year contract worth $27 million and an AAV of $3.8 million in 2013. He has four years remaining on his deal. With Hamonic having a very team friendly contract and term, and being a proven top pairing defender at just 25-years old, remaining in New York is sure to please Islanders management and fans.
