New York Announces 23 Man Roster

Islanders website: Released it's 23-man roster.

“Obviously the biggest reason I picked Aaron is his approach to the game,” Sound Tigers Head Coach Brent Thompson said. “His daily practice habits, his off-ice habits and the way he carries himself on and off the ice show what a great representation of the Islanders organization and the Bridgeport Sound Tigers he is. The biggest thing for him is his work ethic – he comes to work every day and is a true professional.”

“It’s really exciting,” Ness said. “You look at all the names before and it’s a pretty big honor. I know all the guys here, including myself, are excited to get going and get the season started here.”

NYIFC Comments: 
Anders Lee and his agent have fair reason to be very unhappy today, however you don't want him sitting in the stands or playing on the fourth line and yes a strong case can be made he belongs based on last season vs the other left wingers.

When the players on IR are ready to return there will be more changes.

Matt Donovan had to clear waivers which would have been unlikely.
