My interview with Isles Travis Hamonic
At his teammate Anders Lee's Kan Jam event, I was able to catch up with Travis. Here's the questions I asked him.
Me: "How has the team changed from December to now?"
Hamonic: "As a group we expect a lot out of each other, and we expect to win every time. It's fun to get back in the playoff race.
M: "A couple times this season, you've missed many games due to injuries. Is it tough to bounce back from injuries?
H: "Yeah, it is. Especially this time of year when everyone else is playing at such a high level, and you've been out for a couple months. You need to get back up to speed quickly.
M: "Was it tough to go through the pressure when you first requested a trade?"
H: "I love being an Islander. You can see all of us are very good friends. It wasn't. Everyone was very, very supportive, and I think that's the most important thing.
M: "What do you think about this event Anders Lee is running?"
H: "It's important. When you do an event like this, you realize there's a lot of people that are less fortunate than others, and you can raise a lot of money, and try to do a lot of good in the world. I think it's really important."
