The Islanders sent Ty Wishart back down to AHL Bridgeport and put forward Tim Wallace on waivers this afternoon.
The move most likely indicates that Travis Hamonic is ready to return to action in the coming day or so. Newsday reported that he could return to the Islanders roster Friday night against the New York Rangers.
Wallace spent over a week as the healthy scratch and in 31 games played this season only has an assist and is plus -7.
The Wallace move opens up a spot for the Islanders and means a call up is likely coming, The two names that come to mind for a call are fan favorite Michael Haley and David Ullstrom.
Both players have spent time with the Islanders this season. Haley spent seven games with the Islanders and did not register a point, but he brings a certain energy to the team that could be used desperately right now. Haley is a fighter, who loves to stick up for his teammates, hit people and does anything he can to contribute on the ice.
Ullstrom played in 14 gam...
