Clutterbuck to make debut for Islanders

The New York Islanders announced Friday that offseason acquisition Cal Clutterbuck will be in the lineup Friday night when they face the Chicago Blackhawks at United Center.

Clutterbuck suffered a lacerated leg during a preseason game against the Calgary Flames on Sept. 17 and was originally slated to miss 4-6 weeks.

Clutterbuck was acquired from the Minnesota Wild, along with a third-round pick, at the 2013 NHL Draft in exchange for right wing Nino Niederreiter. The 25-year-old saw his offensive production dip last season with four goals and six assists in 42 games, but he did finish in the top 10 in the NHL with 155 hits.

Quote of the Day

He seemed to thrive on his own and didn't really need any push from me. I certainly don't want to get in the way of the coaches. You see how that goes sometimes. I never really worried about it and just enjoyed the ride.
