Josh Ho-Sang was recalled from the Bridgeport Sound Tigers under emergency conditions on Saturday morning. 

Ho-Sang was loaned to Bridgeport on October 25. He had four assists in six games with the Islanders to start the season and six points (2G, 4A) in six games with the Sound Tigers. The Islanders forward flew to St. Louis on Saturday morning, arriving at approximately 11 a.m. to be with the team for Saturday's game. 

"The reports have been good on Josh," Head Coach Doug Weight said. "We know what he can bring and he's certainly done that at this level in the past. Everyone grows at different paces, but he's a heck of a player and we're excited to have him up here and we want him to take full advantage of it."

Isles Day-to-Day: Quine Recalled

The Islanders forward completed a conditioning stint in Bridgeport

by Cory Wright WrightsWay / New York Islanders

Alan Quine returned to the New York Islanders on Wednesday morning after completing a two-week conditioning stint with the Bridgeport Sound Tigers. 

Quine, who suffered an upper-body injury in September, was assigned to Bridgeport on Oct 26. The Islanders forward scored one goal in four games with the Sound Tigers, using the two weeks to get his timing back on the ice.

"It was important for me to get some games in, I missed training camp so it was good to get some of the rust out and get used to playing games again," Quine said. "Every game I felt like I was taking steps to where I need to be... getting back into game action and taking hits and all of that stuff and getting the rust out, so it's important."

Head Coach Doug Weight said Wednesday that he expects to see Quine in the lineup for Friday's game against Dallas, especially since Nikolay Kulemin was placed on injured reserve with an upper-body injury, retroactive to Nov. 7.

Tweet from @NYIslanders: #Isles Injury Update: Nikolay Kulemin has been place on the team���s IR list (upper body) retro Nov. 7.

Isles Day-to-Day: October Sky, Bailey Streaking

The Islanders finish October 7-4-1, Josh Bailey riding a 7-game point streak

by Cory Wright WrightsWay / New York Islanders

Last season, the Islanders learned the hard way how a slow start can hamper a team's playoff chances. The Islanders won six of their first 20 games last season and the early hole was part of the reason they missed the playoffs by one point.

From the onset of training camp this season, the Islanders preached the importance of a strong start and followed through, going 7-4-1 in October - their first seven-win October since 2001. For perspective, the Islanders needed 21 games to reach their seventh win last year.

Doug Weight shuffled his lines and power-play personnel during Friday's practice at Centennial Sportsplex in Nashville. 

The Islanders coach said it was a response to the 6-4 loss to the Minnesota Wild on Thursday, which left a sour taste and snapped the Islanders three-game winning streak. Every line featured at least one new face on Friday, while he also made changes to two of his four defense pairs.
