The Islanders announced today that they have waved Blake Comeau. Comeau has been an underwhelming plus -11 in 16 games this season with no goals or assists. During last nights loss to the Flyers he played 8 shifts for a total of 6:45 of ice time.
Rookie Nino Niederreiter will most likely fill Comeau’s spot on the wing. Niederreiter has been the healthy scratch the past two games for the Islanders.
If Comeau is not claimed he will report to AHL Bridgeport, where he started his career in the Islanders organization.
The Islander activated goaltender Al Montoya following the 4-3 loss to the Flyers. He had been out with a hamstring injury.
The return of Montoya meant the Islanders had to return Anders Nilsson, which they did. Nilsson appeared in two game for the Islanders, which included him making his first NHL start against the Pittsburgh Penguins.
