MARTINEK OUT FOUR-TO-SIX WEEKS
D Drew Fata Recalled

Yesterday afternoon in Montreal, the Islanders lost fifth-year defenseman Radek Martinek for four-to-six weeks with a fractured leg. To replace him in the lineup today, the Islanders have recalled defenseman Drew Fata from Bridgeport of the AHL. Fata will wear No. 49 this afternoon when the Islanders faceoff against the Washington Capitals at the Verizon Center.

Martinek was injured in the first period of the Islanders 4-2 victory over Montreal at the Bell Centre. In 43 games this season, Martinek, a fifth-year NHL veteran, scored two goals and added 15 assists for 17 points.

In 40 games with Bridgeport this season, Fata has scored two goals and added five assists for seven points and a +2 plus/minus rating. Fata was originally drafted by the Pittsburgh Penguins in the third round (86th overall) in the 2001 NHL Entry Draft. Prior to this season, Fata played for the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins for the previous three seasons (2003-04 to 2005-06).

As a junior player in the OHL from 2000-01 to 2002-03, Fata split his time with St. Michael™s and Kingston where he recorded 20 goals and 66 assists for 86 points along with 439 penalty minutes and a +15 plus/minus rating. In the 2000-01 season, Fata was named to the OHL All-Rookie Team.
