Islanders Recall Poulin
DiPietro assigned to Sound Tigers

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. Last season, he earned AHL Goaltender of the Month honors for January after recording three-straight shutouts to open the 2012 calendar year. The streak was the second-longest shutout streak in AHL history (Dec. 31 - Jan 8, 221:54).

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.
