Ness down/Olympic rosters announced

The Islanders sent Aaron Ness back to Bridgeport this morning. Given that that leaves six defensemen on their roster, it implies a move to come, though no immediate indication what that’ll be, if it’s an activation from injured reserve or a call from here.

The Winter Classic brought with it Olympic rosters today. A tough few decisions for USA Hockey leave Kyle Okposo off the men’s team, though locals Max Pacioretty and Jonathan Quick are included, as is Greenwich native/Mid-Fairfield youth player Kevin Shattenkirk. Fairfield’s Julie Chu was named to her fourth Olympic team.
