The Islanders have announced that Brock Nelson, John Persson, Ryan Strome, Johan Sundstrom, Matt Donovan, Calvin de Haan, Aaron Ness and Anders Nilsson have been recalled from Bridgeport. After the trade deadline, teams have unlimited rosters so the Islanders can carry as many players as they like. This will give some of their young prospects a chance to be around the team during playoff time. None of these players are likely to play in a playoff game.

Nino Niederreiter will join the Swiss National team for the 2013 World Championships. The tournament starts on May 3rd and is being jointly hosted by Sweden and Finland.
