Sound Tigers who could see time with the New York Islanders:
NINO NIEDERREITER: Among the AHL's top scorers. Playing with confidence in the offensive end. Working to get better all around.
JON LANDRY: Probably Bridgeport's best all-around defenseman so far. Earned a look at the NHL camp.
TY WISHART: Young veteran also got a chance at camp. Has 26 games of NHL experience.
KEVIN POULIN/ANDERS NILSSON: In a compressed 48-game season, a goalie's always on call.
BROCK NELSON: Rookie centerman is just back from a broken jaw.
Islanders who could see time in Bridgeport:
CASEY CIZIKAS: Second-year centerman finished last year in the NHL, gets a chance to start this year up there; wouldn't have to clear waivers to come down.
DAVID ULLSTROM: Like Cizikas, exempt from waivers. Had 24 goals and six assists in the AHL last year; has five goals and 14 assists this year.
COLIN McDONALD: Bridgeport's captain would have to clear waivers to come back and can play a physical game that works up there.
