UPDATE: Islanders have also sent down goaltender Kevin Poulin, recall forward Casey Cizikas, and activate Travis Hamonic off IR. Hamonic and Nabokov are both expected to play against the Rangers tomorrow.

With the intention of sending forward Tim Wallace back to Bridgeport, the New York Islanders placed him on waivers and ended up having him picked up by the Tampa Bay Lightning. The 27 year old was signed by the Islanders during the off-season, and although productive in the AHL, never really got going during his days with the big club. His only point came during his first game, and his game has been on a decline since.

Through 31 games played, Wallace has only one point, a -7 rating, and only 16 shots on goal. Statistics showing that he's clearly been far from the player the Islanders were hoping him to be when they called him up in early December.

Wallace has been the healthy scratch at the last few Islander games, and has rarely played anywhere north of nine minutes, so the sending down was well on its way once Reasoner returned from his injury.

The University of Notre Dame graduate will look to get his career going with the Tampa Bay Lightning, as other past Islanders have done. Islanders like forward Nate Thompson, defensemen, Marc-Andre Bergeron, Eric Brewer, and Bruno Gervais, and lastly goaltender Dwayne Roloson who have found homes in the Tampa Bay Lightning organization.
