One good thing out of all this is no more of the daily callups to where three or more players were in or out daily. I have never seen an Islander team have a revolving door lineup to that degree. I forgot Matt Keith even played for the Isles Friday.
These are the players who are all eligible to play for Bridgeport against Hershey:
Jack Hillen is not eligible to play in the AHL, he season is over.
Jesse Joensuu is eligible to play in the AHL until the playoffs but so far has not dressed for a game, he cannot play for Bridgeport in the playoffs barring injury.
Ted Nolan talked about Nielsen having an injury in the final game.
Just to refresh this was Bridgeport's clear-day roster:
FORWARDS (13) -- Sean Bentivoglio, Kip Brennan, Jeremy Colliton, Blake Comeau, Colton Fretter, Tim Jackman, Matt Keith, Frans Nielsen, Kyle Okposo, Steve Regier, Trevor Smith, Jeff Tambellini, Ben Walter
DEFENSEMEN (7) -- Drew Fata, Scott Ford, Jamie Fraser, Dustin Kohn, Andy Sertich, Matthew Spiller, Mark Wotton
GOALTENDERS (2) -- Joey MacDonald, Mike Morrison
It should be noted all eight Islanders returning are on the list. All the players listed must dress in the Calder Cup playoffs if Bridgeport qualifies until the depth runs out at a position.
Bridgeport has six games left on it's schedule starting in Hershey Saturday.
