I don't think anyone was expecting this one, but the Islanders re-acquired defenseman Freddy Meyer IV on re-entry waivers via the Phoenix Coyotes today.
Says Snow on this pick-up:
“The injuries we’ve recently had on our blue line prove you can never have enough depth,” said Snow. “We’ve always liked Freddy. He”s an intense competitor and he’s a very solid defenseman in all areas who is still just 26 years old. We only lost him earlier in the season because of a numbers game. We are very happy to have Freddy back as an Islander.”

I know I am probably late reporting this, but I was busy moving to my new apartment today. I was checking my email before heading out the door and noticed this bit of news.
More on tonight’s game when I get back!
