Islanders active Nabokov off injured reserve

The New York Islanders have activated goaltender Evgeni Nabokov off injured reserve.

Nabokov, who hasn't played since Nov. 16 due to a groin injury, will serve as backup to Kevin Poulin when the Islanders play at the Phoenix Coyotes on Thursday.

Goalie Anders Nilsson has been sent to the Bridgeport Sound Tigers of the American Hockey League.

Quote of the Day

He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.
