Travis Hamonic is in Vancouver and will report to the Abbotsford Canucks, announced general manager Jim Benning.
The club put out the following statement late Tuesday afternoon:
Hamonic did not report to training camp despite Benning saying that he expected Hamonic to be there just a day before camp began.
The reason for Hamonic’s absence hasn’t been made clear. The club has called it “personal reasons” and hasn’t offered any further information.
The entirety of Hamonic’s $3 million cap hit will be back on the Canucks’ books this season when the club calls him up from Abbotsford.
More to come.
