Ladd on waivers; to Sound Tigers if he clears

The Islanders placed the veteran on waivers Thursday. Lou Lamoriello told reporters on the Island that Ladd will join Bridgeport in Belleville for Friday’s game if he clears:

Ladd, 34 in a month, scored a goal on nine shots and probably should’ve had an assist in his five games of conditioning, which ended on Sunday against the B-Sens.

Edit: Arthur Staple points out that, in this video, Lamoriello says that Mitch Vande Sompel will likely miss the season.
