Nielsen returns after his hand was broken by a slash from Colorado Avalanche defenseman Erik Johnson on Feb. 8, the Islanders' last game before the Olympic break. He has 18 goals and 43 points in 60 games.

New Jersey Devils goaltender Martin Brodeur said Saturday if he were to accept a trade it would not have to be either to a Stanley Cup contender or for a starting job.
"Not necessarily. If I would agree for it, it would just be to get more ice time," Brodeur told MSG Network after defeating the New York Islanders 6-1 in his first game since Jan. 26.
"I feel really good. I think that kind of helped me out to see the way I was playing, how in control I was today. I've still got a lot left in me, and if I need to play somewhere else next year I need to make some decisions."
Rob Rossi, citing multiple sources, reported that a proposed trade would send Kesler to the Penguins in exchange for center Brandon Sutter, two 2014 draft picks (likely a first-round and third-round), and the Canucks' choice of defensemen Simon Despres or Brian Dumoulin.
