Sens Extend Hamonic

Travis Hamonic is back on a two year deal.

Sens Extend Hamonic

It'll be Hammer Time™ for another two years in the Nation's Capital as the Ottawa Senators announced a two year extension for veteran rearguard Travis Hamonic.

The 32-year old Manitoba native was acquired at the deadline in 2021-22 and spent all of last season with the club, as well. Mainly acting as the veteran insulation for rookie defender Jake Sanderson, Hamonic logged a ton of minutes for the Sens last year, including leading the team in shorthanded play.

At a cap hit of $1.1M, this is the perfect contract for Hamonic, who is likely to spend the majority of his time as the sixth, maybe seventh, defender in the organization. With how well Sanderson progressed last year, and the addition of Jake Chychrun to the top four, Hamonic was never going to command a ton of money from the Sens as his role is expected to be diminished.

Early in the offseason, Hamonic was very transparent about his desire to stay in Ottawa, talking up his love for the organization, teammates and the city itself.
