Sportsnet.ca: Reports Islander-Sound Tiger defenseman Joe Callahan was placed on waivers Monday among several NHL-AHL players on the list that include:
Tom Preissing (L.A.); Sean Avery (DAL-recall); Lawrence Nycholat (Vancouver); Steven Goertzen (Phoenix) and Bill Thomas (Pittsburgh).
NYI Fan Central Comments:
Somewhat interesting. No one is reportedly ready to return according to Mr Botta on the backline as of Sunday and Bridgeport has a game Tuesday, I suspect he will play tonight or this is a paper transaction with clear-day rosters for the AHL coming up soon.
Not the first time Joe Callahan has hit the waiver wire.
Islander defense for those keeping track.
Mark Streit-Twenty nine minutes against Buffalo.
Add eight to tonight's man games lost injury count which is now being tracked on the sidebar.
