Islanders' DiPietro clears waivers, sent to AHL

The New York Islanders officially assigned goaltender Rick DiPietro to Bridgeport of the American Hockey League on Saturday.

DiPietro, who was placed on waivers Friday, has eight years remaining on his contract at $4.5 million per season. Injuries and ineffective play have stalled the career of the No. 1 pick in the 2000 NHL Draft.

Including three games this season, DiPietro has only appeared in 50 for the Islanders since the start of the 2008-09 campaign. He has wins in 14 of those appearances.

To replace DiPietro on the roster, the Islanders recalled Kevin Poulin from Bridgeport. Poulin, a fifth-round pick in the 2008 NHL Draft, has appeared in a total of 16 games for the Islanders in the previous two seasons.

Hartnell back in Flyers lineup

PHILADELPHIA -- The Philadelphia Flyers announced that forward Scott Hartnell will return to the lineup for Saturday's game against the Winnipeg Jets.

Hartnell has missed the past 16 games since breaking the first metatarsal in his left foot Jan. 22 against the New Jersey Devils. He had surgery to repair the injury Jan. 25, and at that time was expected to miss 4-6 weeks; Saturday's game marks four weeks and one day.

"Obviously, Hartsy is a big part of it," Flyers coach Peter Laviolette said. "We haven't had a practice with him yet. It'll be good to get him back on the ice in a game and get him moving forward. It's been a long time without him. Certainly, I think we can benefit from having him in the lineup. He brings a lot to the table."

Report: Boudreau expects Fowler back soon

The Orange County Register reported Friday that Anaheim Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau said he expects defenseman Cam Fowler to return to the lineup in one of the team's next two games.

According to the report, Boudreau said Fowler should be available for either the Ducks' game Sunday at home against the Colorado Avalanche or their game Monday at the Los Angeles Kings.

Fowler has missed the last eight games with an upper-body injury sustained Feb. 2 in a game against the Kings when he was hit into the boards in the second period by the Los Angeles forward Jarret Stoll.

Thigh contusion sidelines Wild's Clutterbuck

The Minnesota Wild will be without forward Cal Clutterbuck for at least one game when they play at the Calgary Flames on Saturday.

Clutterbuck was injured in a collision with Edmonton Oilers forward Taylor Hall in the third period of Thursday's game and suffered what coach Mike Yeo called a thigh contusion. Hall was assessed a major penalty for kneeing and a game misconduct, and has a disciplinary hearing scheduled for Friday with the NHL Player Safety Department.

The Wild also recalled forward Charlie Coyle from Houston of the American Hockey League and will have him available for Saturday's game. Coyle had no points and six shots on goal in five games with the Wild earlier this season.

Minnesota also announced forward Johan Larsson had been sent to the AHL.
