While the New York Islanders reported no additional positive covid tests on Wednesday, the team still recalled forward Otto Koivula from Bridgeport.

Koivula leads Bridgeport with 15 points (3G, 12A) in 17 games this season. Koivula played 12 games with the Islanders in the 2019-20 season and has spent parts of the past four seasons in Bridgeport. 

Islanders President and General Manager Lou Lamoriello announced the recall and said that no additional Islanders players had tested positive for COVID-19 since Tuesday's announcement about Zdeno Chara

Josh Bailey, Kieffer Bellows , Chara, Andy Greene, Ross Johnston , Anders Lee and Adam Pelech  were all still in COVID protocols. Brock Nelson will also miss Wednesday's game as he suffered a lower-body injury on Sunday vs Toronto. 

Lamoriello also confirmed that Ryan Pulock, who is out four-to-six weeks with a lower-body injury, was placed on Long Term Injured Reserve (LTIR) to accommodate all of the roster moves in the past week.
