The New York Islanders announced today that goaltender Kevin Poulin has been recalled from loan from the Bridgeport Sound Tigers of the American Hockey League. The club also announced that goaltender Rick DiPietro has cleared waivers and been assigned to Bridgeport.

Poulin, 22, has appeared in 16 career games with the Islanders, posting a 6-6-1 record with a 2.67 goals against average and a .918 save percentage. The Montreal, QC, native leads all Sound Tigers this season in games played (32), wins (15) and save percentage (.904).

In 96 career AHL games, all with the Sound Tigers, Poulin has a 51-37-5-7 record.

The Islanders selected Poulin in the fifth round (126th overall) of the 2008 NHL Entry Draft. He played four years of junior hockey with the Victoriaville Tigers of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, posting career bests in games played (54), shutouts (7), GAA (2.63), save percentage (.916) and wins (35) in his fourth and final season.
