Travis Hamonic signs one-year, $1.25 contract with Vancouver
The defenceman, who played in 50 games with Calgary last season before opting out, agreed to a professional tryout contract (PTO) with the Canucks on Jan. 3.
He was steady on the blue line for Calgary for the past three seasons. Prior to last year's break, he only had three goals and nine assists. But, his 21:12 average minutes of ice time ranked second for the Flames.
Production-wise, Hamonic had his best season in 2014-15 when he had five goals and 28 assists in 71 games. Since then, his numbers have not been consistent. He saw his offense in New York drop to 21 points (five goals, 16 assists) in 72 games during 2015-16 and 14 points in 49 games the year after.
In 637 career NHL games, Hamonic has 188 points (37 goals, 151 assists) and 591 penalty minutes.
The 30-year-old was originally drafted 53rd overall (second round) by the New York Islanders in 2008.
