The New York Islanders are getting a key piece of their defense corps back in time for their playoff opener.

Travis Hamonic, who's been out since March 31 with a knee injury, will play Game 1 against the Florida Panthers, head coach Jack Capuano confirmed Thursday.

The 25-year-old logged almost 24 minutes a night through 72 games this season, complementing his solid defensive game with five goals and 16 assists.
