Hamonic and Grabner Return to Practice; Isles to Get New Third Jerseys

Islander fans took a deep sigh of relief today at the news that both Michael Grabner and Travis Hamonic returned to practice.

Hamonic had actually returned yesterday, but was wearing a non-contact jersey during the team skate. Today he returned to the ice, full-contact and all.

The Islander defender left Sunday night’s preseason finale against Ottawa after taking a hit from Derek Grant in the first period. Hamonic was evaluated monday night and cleared to play.

Grabner was absent from practice yesterday, but also returned today. Islander head coach Jack Capuano told the New York Post that he was not feeling well yesterday.

The Islanders colors wont be changing, but they will be getting a new third jersey.

No official rendering has been released.
