ISLANDERS SET 2008-09 ROSTER

by Staff Writer / New York Islanders

The New York Islanders lineup for the start of the 2008-09 season is now set.


The Islanders have reassigned seven players to their top affiliate, the Bridgeport Sound Tigers of the American Hockey League. A total of 26 players remain with the Islanders, 23 on the active roster and three on the Injured Reserve. Including the injured players, the team is carrying two goaltenders, 10 defensemen and 14 forwards.

Goaltender Yann Danis, forwards Jeremy Colliton, Mitch Fritz, Tim Jackman, Kurtis McLean and Trevor Smith and defenseman Chris Lee have been reassigned to Bridgeport.

The Islanders roster includes 21 players who were on the team’s final roster from last season along with free agent acquisitions Mark Streit and Doug Weight, 2008 first round draft pick Josh Bailey along with new defensemen Thomas Pock and Brett Skinner.

Defenseman Chris Campoli (shoulder), Center Mike Sillinger (hip surgery) and defenseman Andy Sutton (hand surgery) have been placed on the Injured Reserve. Chris Lee––who left the ice on a stretcher following a hit from behind in Monday’s night’s game against Florida––was cleared to fly back to New York this morning after staying overnight at Broward General Hospital where he underwent a series of tests which turned out negative.
