Hamonic recorded an assist during Sunday's 3-2 win over the Islanders. It's been an underwhelming first season in Calgary for Hamonic, as this helper improved him to just eight points through 52 games. He's slotted consistently into a second-pairing role, but the veteran isn't receiving power-play minutes, so his upside is significantly capped. There aren't many fantasy settings where Hamonic warrants a roster spot.
Hamonic (lower body) will return to the lineup Thursday against the Sharks, Kristen Odland of Postmedia reports. Hamonic missed just one game while on injured reserve due to the holiday break. The blueliner's status likely doesn't hold much water from a fantasy standpoint, given his lack of offensive contributions (one goal, four assists) this season. However, he should provide the Flames with a more reliable presence on the back end, presumably kicking Matt Bartkowski back out of the lineup.
Hamonic (lower body) will likely suit up against the Sharks on Thursday, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports. While coach Glen Gulutzan would not go so far as to confirm Hamonic will be in the lineup, he indicated the Manitoba native is trending in that direction. The defenseman has never been a prolific scorer -- his career high is five goals in a year -- but fantasy owners will probably still be disappointed that he is bogged down in a 26-game goal drought. If the 27-year-old is given the all-clear, Matt Bartkowski figures to be relegated to the press box.
Hamonic (lower body) was designated for injured reserve Friday. Factoring in the upcoming holiday break, Hamonic could return to action versus the Sharks on Thursday, which would mean he only misses Friday's matchup with Montreal -- a game he was already set to miss due to his lower-body malady. The defenseman hasn't tallied a goal since Oct. 14 (a 26 game stretch) and has notched a mere four helpers during his drought. In order to provide emergency depth on the blue line, the team recalled Rasmus Andersson from the minors.
Hamonic (lower body) won't play Friday night against the Canadiens, Derek Wills of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports. It's usually an ominous sign when a player like Hamonic gets ruled out a day in advance, but he wasn't on injured reserve as of Thursday afternoon. Hamonic, who's added a mere five points in 32 games, will now have all the way until Dec. 28 to prepare for the next contest.
