Unhappy with current situation — Katie Strang (@KatieStrangESPN) January 22, 2013 Niederreiter has been the most consistent point producer for the Isles' AHL affiliate, the Bridgeport Sound Tigers, with 19-17-36 in 39 games. But curiously, he was not called up for so much as a look during the Islanders' abbreivated mini-camp. Niederreiter was called up to join the Islanders at 19 years old last season instead of being sent back to the Portland Winter Hawks of the WHL. However, while at the NHL level, Niederreiter saw merely eight minutes of ice time per game (and that's rounding up).
