Cal Clutterbuck deal to Islanders.

SPECTOR’S NOTE: Niederreiter, picked fifth overall in 2010 and once considered a highly touted prospect with the Islanders, failed to crack their lineup as a regular and is in need of a fresh start.

Clutterbuck is a restricted free agent but the Wild cannot afford to re-sign him. He’ll provide an additional measure of energy to the Islanders checking lines.

  1. Great pickup by the Islanders, some toughness to go with the skill they have up top. Wouldnt be surprised if they take a run at Bryz or Halak next
