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

I've got a lot of experience and there's a lot of young guys. It's even making me excited a little more. It's kind of a new life. At my age, I feel like I know a lot of things what to do, but I just cannot do it anymore. It's a lot easier to tell them what to do because they've still got the legs and hands to do it. I just know things, but I cannot do them anymore.
