Flames' Hamonic opts out of NHL's restart plan for family reasons

The Calgary Flames will practice as a team Monday morning for the first time since the National Hockey League season was halted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

On Friday evening, a full 10 seasons after his time in Moose Jaw, he showed that none of that has changed.

The Flames defenceman said in a assertion posted to Twitter that his choice centred around the reality that his daughter contracted a incredibly serious respiratory virus very a year ago.

Titan Sports 365, the agency that represents Hamonic, released a statement from the rugged blueliner, who cited the life-altering situation he and his wife Stephanie experienced when their infant daughter Charlie had difficulty breathing and needed to be rushed to the Alberta Children's Hospital in early 2019. Now blessed with our second child, a baby boy at home, the risk of today's COVID-19 pandemic is a very hard one to weigh as parents. Hamonic was unwilling to put his family - and, now, two-year-old daughter - at risk of contracting COVID-19.

"Due to what my daughter already has gone as a result of and the considerations if she were being to capture COVID-19, I have made a decision to opt out and seek a go away of absence from the Calgary Flames for the remainder of the playoffs", Hamonic claimed.

"I wish I could lace up my skates and be out there battling, blocking a shot and helping my team win, but my family has and always will come first", Hamonic said.

"Being my youngsters' daddy everyday is the most essential task I have".

Calgary Flames defenseman Travis Hamonic informed general manager Brad Treliving that he's opting out of the NHL's play-in tournament due to family concerns, the team announced Friday.

Players and coaches will be back on the ice at the Saddledome to kick off a mini training camp in preparation for their Stanley Cup playoffs play-in series next month in Edmonton.

The Flames will face the Winning Jets in a five-game playoff series that begins August 1 in Edmonton. He logged more than 21 minutes per game this season, including a team-high 3:06 per night on the penalty kill on a unit that was inside the NHL's top 10. This is a decision that is extremely hard for me to make.

With Mark Giordano and TJ Brodie penciled in as the first pairing, Hamonic's spot on the second pairing alongside Noah Hanifin could be replaced by Rasmus Andersson, while the newbies could form the third unit.

The 29-year-old Manitoban is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent at the conclusion of this season.
