Travis Hamonic looks to shine on 10-year anniversary of father's death

 After an on-ice session this morning, the Islanders prospects will bus up to Boston for tonight's Rookie Game against the Bruins.

I'm heading up to Boston for the day as well, so will bring you more later from TD Garden.

 

***Fun fact about Hamonic and fellow prospect David Toews. Toews, who now plays for the Brandon Wheat Kings,  lives with Hamonic's old Billet family in Brandon. Hamonic described the mom as an "awesome cook," so he was pretty happy when she sent a box of homemade cookies with Toews to give to Hamonic this week.
