Islanders place veteran Rolston on waivers
The New York Islanders placed veteran forward Brian Rolston on waivers, the team announced Saturday.

Roston has four goals and nine points in 49 games this season. The Islanders acquired him from the New Jersey Devils for Trent Hunter in July. He is in the final year of a four-year, $20.25 million contract the 39-year-old signed with New Jersey in 2008.

The Islanders recalled forward David Ullstrom to take his place. Ullstrom has two goals and four points in 14 games with the Islanders this season, as well as 19 goals and 23 points in 32 games with Bridgeport in the American Hockey League.

In other waiver wire news, the Columbus Blue Jackets claimed Darryl Boyce from Toronto, who was put on waivers Friday. Boyce has one goal and one assist in 17 games for the Maple Leafs this season.

TSN's Bob McKenzie reported the other guys placed on waivers Saturday besides Rolston are Ryan Russell and Grant Clitsome from Columbus, New Jersey's Eric Boulton, Minneosta's Brad Staubitz and Krys Kolanos of Calgary. Staubitz is on re-entry waivers.

Quote of the Day

I was going nuts and I saw [Subban], he was going crazy, and the ref had no idea where to go. [Subban] was skating to me, and I was skating to him and the ref was right in between us and I don't know, I kind of hit him pretty hard, I thought, but those were some emotions and I'm pretty sure he understands that.
