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

It's obviously not fun to not know, but on the other hand, I'm not in a rush. I'm going to be back to 100 percent before I start playing. I'm not going to play on 90 percent.
