New York Islanders - Training Camp 2011
Niederreiter Updates

Islanders forward Nino Niederreiter addressed the media at Iceworks on Tuesday while the team was still on the ice for practice. He said he tested out the waters yesterday, skating by himself, but has an off day today and will skate again tomorrow.

As for when he thinks he’ll be ready for his next team practice, he’s hoping soon, calling what was initially reported as a groin injury, just a Charlie-horse. However, the roster needs to be set by 3 p.m. tomorrow so if Niederreiter is expected to join the team for practice, roster moves would have to be made.

Missing this last week of camp has been upsetting for the rookie winger. He’s currently unsure of his place on the team this year and said he hasn’t had conversations with General Manager Garth Snow or Head Coach Jack Capuano.

“I still don’t know if I am going to stay here or not,” Niederreiter said. “It’s just not easy (sitting out). I would have liked to have another week to show that I am ready.”
