Isles Day-To-Day: Prince to IR, Kearns Recalled

Prince placed on IR retroactive to Feb. 12, Kearns an emergency recall from Bridgeport

by Cory Wright WrightsWay / New York Islanders

The New York Islanders placed Shane Prince (upper body) on injured reserve on Wednesday, retroactive to Feb. 12. Bracken Kearns was an emergency recall from the Bridgeport Sound Tigers in wake of Prince heading to IR. 

Kearns' recall was necessary because Cal Clutterbuck (lower body) and Casey Cizikas (upper body) both left Tuesday's win over Detroit, leaving the Islanders with 10 forwards in the third period. Stephen Gionta is the Islanders extra forward on the trip, but if both Cizikas and Clutterbuck can't play on Thursday Kearns will make his season debut.
