Hamonic has opted out of playing once the 2019-20 season restarts.
The NHL announced its plans to return to play Friday, but Hamonic will elect to not join the team out of family concerns amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The defenseman battled an upper-body injury prior to the suspension of play and only picked up 12 points over 50 games this year.
Hamonic (upper body) has been medically cleared ahead of Thursday's game against the Islanders, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.
Coach Geoff Ward declined to confirm whether Hamonic would rejoin the lineup Thursday, but all signs currently point to him returning against the Islanders. Either way, the 29-year-old blueliner has only picked up 12 points in 50 games this campaign, making him a fringe option at best in deeper fantasy formats.
Hamonic (upper body) is hoping to return to the lineup Thursday against the Islanders, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.
Hamonic has been sidelined since Feb. 8 with an upper-body issue, but he was able to complete a full practice for the first time since suffering his injury Saturday, which was the first sign that he was likely closing in on a return. Another update on the 29-year-old blueliner's status should be released prior to puck drop against the Isles.
Hamonic (upper body) got in a full practice Saturday, Flames radio host Pat Steinberg reports.
Hamonic was able to finish a full practice for the first time since getting injured a month ago, but he will need to take contact before making a possible return. It will probably be at least another week before the defenseman's ready for game action.
Hamonic (upper body) participated in Wednesday's morning skate in a non-contact jersey, Kristen Anderson of The Calgary Sun reports.
It's the first time Hamonic has skated with the team since he exited their Feb. 8 game against the Canucks. He'll still likely need a few full practices before he's ready to go. Hamonic is on injured reserve currently -- when he's activated, that will be a strong indication that he's nearing a return.
Flames general manager Brad Treliving says that Hamonic (upper body) is expected to miss "a few more weeks," Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.
Hamonic has missed the last seven games and isn't expected to return until at least mid-March. The 29-year-old defenseman has 12 points in 50 games this season.
Hamonic (upper body) hasn't resumed skating and is still week-to-week, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.
Mark Giordano (hamstring) returned to the ice Tuesday and still has no timeline to return, but general manager Brad Treliving believes Hamonic will need more time than the captain. However, he relayed that both should return this season. The Flames have certainly struggled without the two in the lineup, as they've allowed three or more goals in five straight games, but Michael Stone and Noah Hanifin are expected to stay in the top four until the injured blueliners return.
The Flames placed Hamonic (undisclosed) on injured reserve Monday.
Hamonic was sent back to Calgary earlier Monday, so he was already expected to miss the remaining three games on this current road trip. His placement on injured reserve will rule him out until at least Feb. 17 against the Ducks, but a timeline for his return is still unknown. There should be a more clear outlook later in the week after further evaluation.
Hamonic (undisclosed) will head back to Calgary and miss the next three road games, Wes Gilbertson of the Calgary Sun reports.
Hamonic will be re-evaluated at home, so his next chance to play will be Saturday versus the Blackhawks. This doesn't have many fantasy implications because Hamonic has just 12 points over 50 games. Michael Stone is expected to work on the top pairing in Hamonic's place Monday against the Sharks.
Hamonic (undisclosed) is expected to miss Monday's game versus the Sharks, Wes Gilbertson of the Calgary Sun reports.
Hamonic missed Monday's practice after sustaining an undisclosed injury Saturday against the Canucks, and the Flames recalled Alexander Yelesin to add depth to the blue line. The 29-year-old Hamonic will aim to get back in the lineup Wednesday versus the Kings.
Hamonic (undisclosed) left Saturday's game against Vancouver with an injury. After the game, head coach Geoff Ward had no update on his status, Wes Gilbertson of the Calgary Sun reports.
Hamonic initially exited early in the second period, but he came back to play a couple of shifts near the end of the frame before leaving for good. It's unclear how the injury occurred. The Flames can ill afford to lose Hamonic for any length of time with Mark Giordano (hamstring) already out. If the 29-year-old defenseman can't play Monday in San Jose, expect Brandon Davidson to enter the lineup.
Hamonic recorded an assist, four blocked shots, two shots on net and two hits in Thursday's 3-2 loss to the Predators.
Hamonic found Sam Bennett for the opening tally 33 seconds into the game. The defenseman has a serviceable four assists to go with 20 blocks and 12 shots in his last seven contests. For the season, the 29-year-old is at 12 points, 108 blocks and 82 shots through 49 appearances.
Hamonic picked up an assist, blocked five shots, dished two hits and put two shots on net in Wednesday's 4-3 shootout win over the Oilers.
Hamonic's assist came on an Elias Lindholm tally at 1:01 of the first period. The 29-year-old defenseman has been unusually productive with three assists in his last four outings. He's up to 11 points, 101 blocks and 77 shots through 46 games as a shutdown blueliner.
Hamonic produced an assist and three shots on goal in Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Senators.
Hamonic has an assist in each of the last two games. The defenseman is up to 10 points, 94 blocked shots, 75 shots on net and a plus-2 rating in 44 outings. He's not one to produce much offense, but he could attract some attention as a roster-filler in DFS after the Flames complete their bye week.
Hamonic registered an assist, two shots on goal and a team-high five blocked shots in Thursday's 2-1 shootout win over the Maple Leafs.
Hamonic saw a second-period shot attempt tipped in by Derek Ryan for the opening goal. The 29-year-old blueliner is up to nine points, 93 blocks, 72 shots and a plus-2 rating in 43 games this season. The defensive specialist isn't likely to interest fantasy owners.
Hamonic scored a goal on four shots and added three blocked shots in Sunday's 5-4 shootout win over the Wild.
Hamonic's tally was the first of three goals scored by Flames defensemen in the contest. He entered Sunday with no points in his last nine games. The 29-year-old is up to eight points, 61 shots on goal and 79 blocked shots through 38 outings. A mostly defensive player, Hamonic won't typically help many fantasy owners outside of very deep formats.
Hamonic has no points in his last nine appearances.
In that span, the defenseman has provided a plus-4 rating, 16 blocked shots and 18 shots on goal. Hamonic has only seven points, 76 blocks and 57 shots through 37 appearances this season, making him a non-factor in most fantasy formats.
Hamonic picked up a goal and an assist with two PIM and three blocks in Thursday's 4-2 win over Toronto.
Hamonic's goal late in the first period was just his second on the season and his first in over a month. The 29-year-old is a valuable real-life defenseman for the Flames, but his offensive contributions are sparse; he's failed to top 21 points in a season ever since putting up a career-high 33 back in 2014-15.
Hamonic generated an assist in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Coyotes.
Hamonic found Mikael Backlund, who served up Sean Monahan for the goal in the second period. Hamonic snapped a six-game point drought with the assist (he also missed six contests due to injury during that span). For the year, the 29-year-old has five points, 38 shots on goal, and 57 blocked shots in 27 games.
Hamonic (lower body) blocked five shots, dished two hits and fired three shots on goal in Thursday's 4-3 win over the Sabres.
Hamonic also led all skaters with 26:11 of ice time in the contest. He missed six games with the injury, but the 29-year-old is back to serving a defensive role on the Flames' second pairing. He has four points, 50 blocked shots and 36 shots on goal in 24 appearances this season, which doesn't hold much appeal in fantasy circles.
