Kearns Recalled from Bridgeport, Jones Signs Two-Way Deal

On Tuesday night in Detroit, Cal Clutterbuck returned to the lineup but didn’t stay for long, leaving the game with a lower-body injury. Also leaving the 3-1 win over the Red Wings early was Casey Cizikas with an upper-body injury. The Islanders, who are in Montreal to face the Canadiens tomorrow are off today as so the status of those two forwards are currently unknown. Shane Prince has been out with an injury since February 12th and today he has been placed on injured reserve (IR). With Prince being placed on IR, the Islanders recalled Bracken Kearns from Bridgeport on emergency basis. At 35 years old, Kearns leads the Sound Tigers in points with 18 goals and 22 assists (40 points) through 51 games. Last year Kearns appeared in the Islanders’ last two regular-season games, setting up Alan Quine in front while shorthanded for Quine’s first NHL goal after taking the puck away from Sabres goaltender Linus Ullmark. Many will wonder why Kearns was called up over prospects such as Michael Dal Colle and Joshua Ho-Sang. In my opinion, it is because of the role that needs to be filled. Dal Colle and Ho-Sang are players that should be playing higher up in the lineup and should be receiving more ice time than a fourth line position would offer. With the injuries coming to Cizikas and Clutterbuck, the role Kearns would likely fill would be on the fourth line or he would maybe even serve as a healthy scratch.

In addition, the Islanders announced that they have signed Connor Jones to a two-way deal for the remainder of the season. Jones, who was originally on an AHL deal, has five goals and 12 assists through 47 games with the Sound Tigers this season. Despite, the two-way contract, Jones currently remains in the AHL with Bridgeport.
