Deadline day

First bit of Islanders news today is that Rob Schremp won’t be coming here at any point. Atlanta claimed him off waivers. Nathan Lawson cleared, so he’s eligible to be sent down.

Here at a quarter after 12, the Islanders are left with 11 unsuspended forwards (Trevor Gillies serves the final game of his suspension tomorrow and is eligible to return Wednesday). But there are a few hours left to do something about that.

12:45 — Not from the NHL, not from the AHL… but in the CHL, Mike Mole signed with Odessa.

2:00 — Reports are that former Sound Tigers defenseman Chris Campoli is off to Chicago for a pick and a minor leaguer. So at least Binghamton gets some help this time. Edit: Ryan Potulny, TSN reports, which isn’t a bad pickup at all.

2:30 — Colten Teubert, among Brett Gallant’s combatants Saturday night, is reportedly off from the Kings to Edmonton in a package for Dustin Penner, TSN reports. Meanwhile, BST radio color man Carmine Vetrano was named the Federal League’s broadcaster of the year.

2:45 — Upstate, the Whale have Kris Newbury, Mats Zuccarello and Ryan McDonagh listed as down in the transactions. So they’ll be eligible for Hartford’s Clear Day list.

3:00 — As the deadline passes, TSN reports that the Rangers have picked up former attorney general former Mets pitcher Toronto’s John Mitchell. Katie Strang tweets that the Isles did nothing. (And just now at about 3:05, Isles confirm.) Awaiting word who may have been sent down, on paper or otherwise.

3:15 — Greg Moore on the move again, this time to Columbus for Tom Sestito, says Bob McKenzie (though his first tweet mentioned the Rangers instead of Philly). Michael Chaput also presumably goes from Adirondack to Springfield with Moore. edit: err, he would if he were there. Thinking of the other Chaput, the one who went to Providence yesterday, I guess. This Chaput is still in junior.

3:17 — Isles announced that Justin DiBenedetto has been called up. He can stand in front of NHL nets.

4:01 — While we continue to wait… SwedishIslander on Twitter passes on a link to a story from Sweden that several Swedish teams have interest in Robin Figren. No surprise they might have interest. We’ll see if it’s mutual.

4:04 — Appearing on leaguestat are Nathan Lawson and Ty Wishart as players sent down and called back up.

5:15 — Have been checking on some other things, but in the meantime, the Rangers announced that Marty Biron is out indefinitely with a broken collarbone he suffered in practice. Yikes. Cam Talbot is up from Hartford.

7:30 — The obvious missing names on the transactions are Haley and Katic, but apparently emergency-recall players don’t have to be in the AHL at 3 on the deadline to be eligible to be sent down.
