The Islanders will have a fresh face on their roster when they take on the Dallas Stars tomorrow night. Newsday’s Arthur Staple reported that either Aaron Ness or Calvin de Haan would be called up due to concussion like symptoms felt by Steve Staios.
Staios will miss tomorrow’s game due to NHL concussion protocol and Staples says that the Islanders may need Ness or de Haan longer than just one game.
Through 22 games de Haan has two goals and six assists for eight points for the Sound Tigers. Ness has appeared in four more games than de Haan and has posted two goals and eight assists for 10 points. Both players are viewed as high-level defensive prospects for the Islanders.
Expect an announcement by tomorrow afternoon.

The New York Islanders placed goaltender Rick DiPietro on injured reserve Thursday.
He was cut by countless junior and minor teams, drafted in the ninth round, and plays an unsightly game. Michael Farber has the story of Matt Moulson, a most unlikely 30-goal scorer.
Jamie Benn scored the go-ahead goal 4:33 into the third period and also had an assist in the Dallas Stars' 3-2 victory over the New York Islanders on Thursday night.
Loui Eriksson and Brendan Morrow also scored and Richard Bachman made 25 saves to improve to 3-0 in the NHL and help the Stars run their winning streak to three games.
