Calvin de Haan Called Up and Kevin Poulin Starting Tonight | December
logo



It is Calvin de Haan who will join the Islanders for tonight’s game. The de Haan call up was made official this morning. Last night reports indicated it would be either de Haan or Aaron Ness who would be called up in the wake of an injury to Steve Staios.

The injury to Staios is being called “an upper body injury” by the team, but reports indicate that he is suffering from concussion like symptoms.

Kevin Shultz of Islanders Point blank is reporting that Jack Capuano is leaning towards pairing de Haan with Dylan Reese due to the Sound Tigers familiarity. This will be de Haan’s first NHL game in his young career.

Also called up was goaltender Kevin Poulin. The call up was in response to Rick Dipietro being placed on injured reserve retroactive to December 3. Poulin will make his season debut tonight when he starts against the Dallas Stars.
