ZEDNIK EXCITED TO MAKE NYI DEBUT
Scoring Slovak set to play with Miro and Kozlov

Richard Zednik spent very little time on Long Island before getting right on the ice for the morning skate today at Nassau Coliseum.

Zednik is happy to be in the playoff mix with the Islanders.

"It's exciting to be here with the Islanders fighting for a playoff position," said Zednik. "It's a great opportunity for me to help the team."

So what can we expect from the former 30-goal scorer?

"I like to use my speed and go to the net," said Zednik. "I'm offensive-minded and create chances for my linemates and score some goals."

Added Nolan at the morning press conference: "We did a lot of research on him for a while. He has a competitive nature. Richard's a good team guy and we know how well he's performed down the stretch and in the playoffs. He's very competitive and fits into our system well. Everyone we spoke to on the team that has played with him had nothing but good things to say about Richard."

One player Zednik has some experience playing with is Miroslav Satan. Nolan indicated the two would see time together. Satan and Zednik have played together on the Slovakian national team during a number of international tournaments.

"Hopefully, we'll contribute offensively and score some goals," said Zednik referring to his compatriot." We played together at the World Championship and it was fun. Hopefully, it will continue here with the Islanders."

The 11-year NHL veteran has also had experience playing with Brendan Witt while with the Capitals and Arron Asham when they both skated for the Montreal Canadiens from 2000-2002.

Zednik, who will wear No. 20 played in only 32 games this season with Washington due to injury, but feels completely healthy after returning in the beginning of February.

"I was injured for most of the season," said Zednik, "so I'm happy to be healthy again and am ready to play. I feel fresh and look forward to helping the Islanders make the playoffs."
