Isles' Hamonic to miss two weeks

New York Islanders defenseman Travis Hamonic is expected to miss two weeks after taking a slap shot to the face from Buffalo Sabres defenseman Christian Ehrhoff on Saturday.

Hamonic needed help to get to the dressing room and left a trail of blood in his path. He suffered a broken nose on the play, which required surgery and stitches.

The 21-year-old Hamonic has a goal and 11 assists in 51 games played this season.
