New York Islanders’ Kyle Palmieri placed on injured reserve


New York Islanders president of hockey operations and general manager Lou Lamoriello has announced that forward Kyle Palmieri will be placed on injured reserve (IR) after sustaining an upper body injury in the 3- 2 of the Islanders in a shootout against the Toronto Maple Leafs on November 2. 21st.

Palmieri, 31, joined the Islanders organization at the 2021 NHL trade deadline – which saw the New Jersey Devils trade Palmieri and veteran forward Travis Zajac to the Islanders in exchange for AJ Greer, Mason Jobst a first-round pick in the 2021 NHL Draft (Chase Stillman) and a fourth-round pick in the 2022 NHL Draft. Palmieri helped the Islanders to the Eastern Conference Finals in 2020-21, recording seven goals and nine points in 19 playoff games. He has nine points (3G, 6A) in 20 games this season. Last season, he scored 33 points (15G, 18A) in 69 games.

The Islanders also announced that veteran forward Cal Clutterbuck has upper-body injuries on a daily basis. Clutterbuck, 35, has three points in 22 games. Additionally, the Islanders recalled forwards Cole Bardreau and Hudson Fasching from the Bridgeport Islanders of the AHL. Bardreau, who hails from Fair Point, New York, made his NHL debut in 2019-20 and had two points in 10 games. It will be his first NHL game since. Last season in the AHL, he scored 25 points (14G, 11A) in 45 games.

Fasching, who hails from Milwaukee, Wis., rebounded in the NHL playing in Buffalo and Arizona. Fasching signed a one-year, $750,000 contract with the Islanders on August 23. In 18 games at Bridgeport this season, he has 10 points in 18 games. He saw 11 NHL games last season with the Coyotes where he was deemed unnecessary. In fact, Fasching’s last NHL goal came in a 2015-16 game against the Winnipeg Jets.
