Vancouver, B.C. - Vancouver Canucks General Manager Jim Benning announced today that the club has re-signed defenceman Travis Hamonic to a two-year contract worth an average annual value of $3 million.

 

Hamonic, 30, recorded 10 points (3-7-10) and 39 penalty minutes in 38 games with the Canucks during the 2020.21 season, his first with Vancouver. Despite missing 18 games due to injury, Hamonic ranked second in blocked shots (81) and fourth in points (10) among Canucks defencemen. His 6.60 blocked shots per 60 minutes also ranked eighth in the NHL (minimum 20 games played).

 

In 675 career regular season games over 11 seasons split between the New York Islanders, Calgary, and Vancouver, Hamonic has collected 198 points (40-158-198) and 630 penalty minutes. He has also skated in 22 career playoff games with the Islanders and Flames, tallying four points (1-3-4) and 33 penalty minutes.

 

The St. Malo, Manitoba, native was originally drafted in the second round, 53rd overall, by the New York Islanders in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft.

To me it's looking like they want JR to be "the" guy in Abby rather than in and out of the lineup in Van.  They likely see him as a top 4 guy and they'll want to develop him as such.  He doesn't have to clear waivers so it'd make sense

Yeah that's what I was hoping actually. How does depth on the left side look after all the signings? 

Kinda sad seeing Eagle move on today. When he had that mean Eddy edge he was such a stud for us.

Perfect signing, he came in last year with no one wanting him, proved his worth, now he's earned 3M per year for 2 years and rightly so, let's see how he performs over 2 years. I think he has to start in our top-4 alongside Hughes - that's his job to lose and IMO one of the hardest in the league covering Hughes' defensive holes.

 

Hamonic was always a top-4 defenceman with Calgary, they just pushed him out for some reason but I'm glad he's proven he's still got some great skills.

I think Shaw will help to fix these issues.

Go back to the thread of Hamonic open to signing outside Western Canada. The people there didn't want him going over 1.5 much less 3

All of the people or some of the people? Why do those people's needs or wants in a hockey discussion forum have any bearing on what he actually received?

Why would you want Hughes in a shutdown role, playing against the top offensive players every night?  You want to shelter him from that, not seek it out

I think he misused the term " Shutdown" meaning to write "defensive specialist" or stay at home defenseman.

Jim Benning drinking Wild Turkey wearing a Tapout t-shirt while hammering through these signing's today. Now take Petey and Huggy to No.5 Orange and make them put pen to paper, after a lapper of course.

Oh look, another anti-Benning patrolling at full force.

 

If you can't see Harmonic is an excellent Tanev replacement, you're not a hockey fan.

 

Go watch cricket.

You're just going to attack posters who are not a fan of Benning? Get out of here, he makes some signings and in your eyes everyone is supposed to just forget about the last 7 years and turn the switch and now treat Benning like he's some god in your eyes now, go play on Twitter.
