Isles recall Neiderreiter from conditioning assignment
Nino Niederreiter, the No. 5 pick in the 2010 Entry Draft, will make his season debut for the New York Islanders when they host the New York Rangers on Tuesday night.

The 19-year-old native of Switzerland has 3 goals and 1 assists in 6 games at Bridgeport of the AHL this season. The winger spent two weeks with the Sound Tigers while on a conditioning stint after suffering a groin injury during training camp.

Islanders coach Jack Capuano said that Niederreiter was playing well enough in camp to make the team before the injury.

Quote of the Day

This is a great day for me. This is something I've been thinking about for a long time. This is a great opportunity that the St. Louis Blues organization, (owner) Tom Stillman and Doug Armstrong are giving me and trusting me in doing...This is going to be a great challenge for me.
