Islanders website: Report Trevor Frischmon, Tomas Marcinko, Dylan Reese, Tim Wallace and Ty Wishart are eligible to play for the Bridgeport Sound Tigers this season, but does not eliminate them from making the Islanders roster.

Andrew MacDonald will play against the Devils, per the Islanders twitter feed.

"I think it's wide open," said Islanders Head Coach Jack Capuano. "We have to win hockey games. Just because those guys were sent down on waivers doesn't necessarily mean that (they can't make the Islanders roster). Those guys are going to play this weekend, they're going to be in the lineup."

NYIFC Comments:
Very surprised by Capuano's comments that those players are going to be in the lineup this weekend because that means someone has to sit. At some point the players on the depth chart expected to play opening night, have to get a few games.

I guess not.
