Hamonic joined the Canucks in training camp on a tryout, and it's widely expected the veteran defenseman will put pen to paper on a contract before the season starts. He compiled 12 points in 50 games with the Flames last year, while adding 110 blocked shots and a minus-3 rating. The 30-year-old Hamonic is likely won't produce much in the way of offense, but his elite shot-blocking talents will make life a little easier for Braden Holtby and Thatcher Demko in goal. Assuming Hamonic signs with the Canucks, he'll likely slot into a shutdown role on the second pairing, essentially taking over Chris Tanev's role from last year. The physically taxing job Hamonic performs will make him an injury risk, and his scoring rate is usually too low for standard fantasy formats.
By his standards, 2018-19 was a strong year for Hamonic. The 28-year-old posted career highs in goals (seven), shooting percentage (5.5 percent), plus-minus (plus-21) and blocked shots (167) in 69 games for the Flames while tacking on 12 assists, two of which came shorthanded. Hamonic played on the Flames' shutdown pairing alongside Noah Hanifin, forming the steadiest defensive unit used by coach Bill Peters. Hamonic's defensive ability is a given at this point, but he's also capable of chipping in 15-to-20 points on an annual basis, and should once again rank in the top-10 league-wide for blocked shots during the upcoming campaign. However, the nine-year veteran's health is always a bit of a concern, as he's never logged more than 74 games in a single season.
Hamonic was a disappointment in his first season with Calgary. The right defenseman with a heavy shot only scored one goal to go along with 10 assists for his worst offensive output since the lockout-shortened 2012-13 season. The Manitoba native played 74 games, averaging 20:42 of ice time per game, but he missed the final four games due to a concussion. Thankfully, it appears he'll be ready to roll by the start of the 2018-19 campaign. Conventional wisdom suggests Hamonic should be able to rebound in modest fashion, but he's a shutdown type at the end of the day, and expectations for him should be tempered.
Hamonic finally got his wish this offseason, as the Islanders traded him to Calgary, where he'll be a bit closer to his family in Winnipeg. (Still pretty far, though -- Canada’s huge!) He's coming off a rough 2016-17, having managed a meager 14 points along with a brutal minus-21 rating over 49 games, with knee and thumb injuries costing him significant action. The Flames won't ask him to do much scoring, considering they've got three strong offense-oriented blueliners already, so even if Hamonic manages to stay healthy, it's hard to see him returning much fantasy value in his new home outside of specialty formats that count hits and blocked shots.
It’s almost hard to believe Hamonic is still a member of the Islanders considering his request for a trade to western Canada last year due to family reasons. Request being the operative word, Hamonic retracted his request after the playoffs once the situation steadied itself and remains the cornerstone on the Islanders defense corps. After setting a career high with 33 points in 2014-2015, Hamonic reverted to the norm in posting 21 points – likely due to the emergence of Nick Leddy and acquisition of Johnny Boychuk. Points, however, are merely a bonus when talking about a premier shutdown defenseman. Consistently tasked with big-time penalty kill minutes, Hamonic spends a lot of his time on the ice against teams’ top lines, where he unleashes his physical prowess. Hamonic once again figures to be the Islanders’ top all-around defenseman by leading the way during 5-on-5 and shorthanded situations. Though he will no doubt receive some power-play time, he Hamonic doesn’t have the same nose for the scoresheet as Leddy and Boychuk, so temper your expectations accordingly.
With last season's additions of Johnny Boychuk and Nick Leddy, Hamonic was no longer asked to serve as the top defenseman for the Islanders, which helped him settle into a more natural role. Still an excellent defenseman, Hamonic came through with five goals and 28 assists in 71 games. Playing on the second defensive pair, Hamonic saw his ice time decrease a bit, though he’s still logging over 21 minutes per game. He also added 85 penalty minutes, good for the second-highest total on the team behind instigator Matt Martin. A presence on the power play as well, Hamonic is a boon to the Islanders' blue line and can produce for the team in a variety of areas. He's never be the biggest point scorer, but fantasy owners could do much worse than rostering a 25-year-old coming off a 33-point campaign.
Hamonic is the Islanders’ definition of a No. 1 defenseman, but with only 13 goals and 65 points in four NHL seasons, he is a far cry from what most teams would consider top-tier. He is good in his own zone and does an adequate job of slowing down the opposing team's top line, but he is miscast as a top-pair defenseman. With Lubomir Visnovsky expected to be back at 100 percent health this season and with Calvin de Haan showcasing more offensive talent, Hamonic’s time as the point man on the power play should be coming to an end.
The trade of Mark Streit now leaves Hamonic as the Isles' best all around defenseman. The problem is Hamonic is still much better on defense than he is on offense. Lubomir Visnovsky will anchor the power play but Hamonic should get a chance to partner with him which could be a boost to his fantasy value.
Hamonic gave the Islanders exactly what they needed last year, a solid young presence on the blue line. Following a slow start, Hamonic registered 24 points with 73 penalty minutes along with triple-digit totals in hits and blocked shots. Defense was by far the biggest problem for the Islanders last year and they have had difficulty drawing free agents to play there and also haven't had much luck grooming their own. Hamonic, still just 22, is of use in deep leagues that reward penalty minutes and other secondary categories, just don't expect massive offensive numbers.
Hamonic finally broke through with the Islanders last season, scoring five goals and 21 assists in 62 games. He should be here to stay as the Isles have been waiting for their young defensemen in the minors to mature. Hamonic also adds a physical presence, having accumulated 103 PIMs in the most recent campaign.
Hamonic was the 53rd overall pick in the 2008 draft. He may provide the Isles with the solid hard hitting blue liner they have been looking for in another season or two. Currently Hockey Futures has Hamonic rated as the Islanders second best prospect, behind Nino Niederreiter, but ahead of Calvin De Haan.
If/when Hamonic reaches the NHL level, he has shown some potential to chip in a few points occasionally. However, he is mainly viewed as a stay-at-home defenseman. He will again play for Moose Jaw (WHL) in 2009-10.
Picked in the second round of the 2008 draft by the Islanders, Hamonic will still be in juniors for the 2008-09 campaign.
