Newsday: Mr Logan in the Islander Newsday blog has a quick update on the injury and reported according to a source he was playing with a broken finger.

NYI Fan Central Comments:

Terrible break for Park who has done so much for this team, for those wondering this reduces his trade deadline value if he was ever in play for Garth Snow. Funny how DiPietro playing with his HIP problems last season was not called a good soldier by Logan, in fact all he did was run him down and wonder why he was playing hurt?

For those scoring at home no reported callups so Park for Hunter keeps the man games lost count at eight unless Bergenheim does not play. I have been updating this next to Isles roster on the sidebar.

Newsday/Msg+ have a difference of one man game lost to injury.
