NEW YORK (March 1, 2014) -- New York Islanders defenseman Travis Hamonic has been suspended, without pay, for one game for instigating a fight during the final five minutes of NHL Game No. 903 at Nassau Coliseum this afternoon, March 1, the National Hockey League's Department of Player Safety announced today. Hamonic will forfeit $19,780.22 in salary. In addition, New York Islanders head coach Jack Capuano has been fined $10,000. Hamonic was assessed a minor penalty for instigation, a major penalty for fighting and a game misconduct at 15:23 of the third period. Both the suspension to the player and the fine of the coach are automatic for a violation of Rule 46.22. Watch the incident below... Continue reading "Video- Travis Hamonic Suspended One Game"

Dee Karl: Suspensions, Fines and Demotions: Head Scratching

Travis Hamonic's hot-headed action yesterday not only earned him a one game suspension and a fine, but also earned Jack Capuano a $10,000 bill as well. This is rediculous since Jack didn't have a chance to intervene and did not send Hammer out over the boards and onto the ice to pummel the offender. Certainly some say they like what Hamonic did, sending a message. But...

Visnovsky gives Islanders OT win over Leafs

In the New York Islanders' first game of a fourth quarter without John Tavares, Michael Grabner (shorthanded) and Anders Lee each scored two goals, while Lubomir Visnovsky scored in overtime to finish a typically chaotic night between the Isles and Toronto Maple Leafs. Visnovsky's goal came after an odd, bouncing clear from James van Reimsdyk landed right on Visnovsky'...

Dan Petriw: Nielsen set to return

Frans Nielsen has been removed from the Injured Reserve list and will be in the lineup today as the Islanders square off against the Florida Panthers at the Coliseum. To make room for Nielsen on the roster the Islanders have returned Mike Halmo to the Bridgeport Sound Tigers of the AHL. Before we all freak out this was the simplest roster move to make. Halmo will return once...

Dee Karl: It Happened Again: 5-3 Loss

Thomas Vanek wanted to leave a lasting impression if he was to never play another game in an Isles sweater at the Coliseum. He began the scoring this afternoon playing on a line he was unfamiliar with. It didn't matter. Cal Clutterbuck and Calvin deHaan earned the assists. That's something they'll talk about for a long time. Less than a minute later, Vanek had...

Big Games No Stars

It was a Saturday night full of big games but sadly none of the New York Ranger or New York Islander prospects stood out to help their team win. There were some big wins for some of the teams which in the short term is nice but we want to see the prospects stepping up and showing us what they can do when their team needs them the most. Ryan Pulock (NYI 2013 1st) came the closest...

Mike Augello: Leafs In A Giving Mood In Loss To Islanders

The Toronto Maple Leafs took to the ice at the Nassau Coliseum on Thursday brimming with confidence, having won 11 of the last 14 games before the Olympic break and facing the struggling New York Islanders, who have a number of players preparing to be moved before the March 5th trade deadline. Toronto was unable to take advantage of the absence of New York top centers John Tavares...

Dan Petriw: The Kids Are Alright

In a game that featured two teams who hadn’t played in 18 days it certainly looked liked two teams that hadn’t played; in 18 days. In a choppy, sloppy game featuring two rusty teams the Islanders managed to come out with a 5-4 OT over the Maple Leafs in Long Island. Lubomir Visnovsky found himself all alone in the slot and was able to fire home the game winner. The Islanders...

Dee Karl: Isles "Abysmal" in 6-1 Loss to Devils

Today's game is one for the history books -- for all the wrong reasons. Jaromir Jagr scored his 700th goal this afternoon. The Isles gave up four power play goals, the most since 2005 and Travis Hamonic was assesed 32 penalty minutes in the third period, tying Michael Haley's PIM record. When Butch Goring, who can find the bright side in just about anything, calls the...
