"I’m pretty grateful and thankful that the Islanders took care of that for me," Hamonic said. "It made a pretty big difference because I was in the hospital there and the team was on the road. It was first-class all the way from the Islanders organization, taking care of everything. They couldn’t have treated the situation any better."

Somewhat of a no-brainer, but still: Good to hear the Islanders taking care of their important players.

>>@NYIslanders (h/t longbeach in comments.) Round and round the injuries go. It's building character, that's the ticket.

"Now they're thinking I may have injured it earlier in the year and played through it, and now this is where it's at." De Haan skated off the ice hunched over and went straight to the dressing room. The Islanders wasted no time in getting him to Long Island to have their doctors give a second opinion, with the decision to operate coming immediately.

>>A little more on the De Haan injury in the Ottawa Citizen, pretty much confirming it was a re-injury from his first game of the season.

Jack Hillen, who was hit in the face by an Alex Ovechkin-slapshot last night, is out 6-8 weeks. Hillen, who will be discharged from the hospital tomorrow, suffered a broken jaw and damaged teeth. He had surgery late last night and early this morning.

>>Katie Strang at Newsday [$5 please]. Ouch. Rest well, Jack. Dustin Kohn is now up.

"I'm done exhaling, I still hold my breath. I'll never forget the day I had to get surgery. It was tough. To think at this age you could have [your] career taken away from you, it's a scary thought."

Most Islanders fans probably saw a version of this Rick DiPietro quote already [subscription], but for other fans just drifting by...well, the time is fast upon us.

When they were using two nets, he had one to himself. When they used one, he got the bulk of the work, so much so that the team let out a kidding-around "heeey!" the first time DiPietro yielded to Scott Munroe… and then again the first time he yielded to Nathan Lawson.

>>Fun practice update from Mike Fornabaio at the Connecticut Post.

"Barring any setbacks, DiPietro to report to Bridgeport for conditioning later this week and likely play Sat. for 1st time."

"I don't think it will change the way I play, but I think it'll change the way I approach the game," said DiPietro, who has lost weight after doctors told him it would be good for his knees. "I feel pretty good with the weight, but I haven't been in a game."

...and we were just remarking about how he looks like he's lost weight. From the NY Post update. (aka "we don't cover the team on the road, so let's do a headline on our tabloid topic of choice.")
