COMEAU TO MAKE NHL DEBUT
Nolan calls him "best player on the ice last night"

Blake Comeau, one of the Islanders' top forward prospects, has been recalled from Bridgeport and will make his NHL debut tonight when the Islanders host the Montreal Canadiens. Comeau was selected in the second round of the 2004 NHL Draft. This season with the Sound Tigers, Comeau is 7-14-21 in 24 games.

Last night in Bridgeport, Comeau scored with 4:10 left in regulation to tie the game and then set up Jeff Tambellini's overtime goal in the Sound Tigers' 3-2 win over Binghamton. Islanders head coach Ted Nolan made the trip to Bridgeport and said at today's morning skate that Comeau was "clearly the best player on the ice."

As he did with Jeremy Colliton on Tuesday, Nolan said Comeau will start tonight's game on the fourth line. "Everything after that," said the coach, "will depend on how Blake performs."
