New York Notables: Update on Willets Point

New York Islander Fan Central | 10/03/2011 02:52:00 PM |

Nino Niederreiter and Trevor Gillies have been placed on injured reserve retroactive to September 30th, while Jack Capuano addresses remaining cuts here before decision day on Wednesday. Jay Pandolfo, Trevor Frischmon both comment.

Islanders website: Earlier twitter feed/NYIFC had the lines at practice.

Niederreiter did not participate, Rolston did on right wing, with Bailey/Comeau while Parenteau was on the first line right wing spot with Moulson/Tavares.

Ct Post: Reports center, Chris Langkow is in on a tryout contract. Mark Katic, Rhett Rakhshani and Jeremy Colliton, all on NHL injured reserve, are in Bridgeport.

NYIFC Comments:
Kabanov has to go to the Montreal Junior/re-branded team (Blainville-Boisbriand Armada)or stay with the Islanders, he is not eligible to play in Bridgeport, same for Ryan Strome. (who is not signed)

A few players with the Islanders are likely headed down to make the final cut which will likely include Trevor Frischmon/Dylan Reese, who have already cleared waivers.

As out twitter feed wrote earlier, if Jay Pandolfo is practicing on a fourth line with Reasoner/Martin, expect a signing of Pandolfo or some other kind of transaction/trade/signing.
Crains New York: Reported among the early bidders for Willets Point, there was speculation, Charles Wang, was asked to partner with a developer, however at this time is nothing can be confirmed based on lack of direct comments.
Winnipeg Free Press: Assigned Jason Gregiore to the AHL.
