According to the Islanders twitter account, Jack Capuano confirmed this morning that rookie forward Nino Niederreiter has been cleared to play.
Nino who hasn't played in two weeks after being concussed by Dallas defenseman Mark Fistric in a game two weeks ago in Dallas would be a big asset for the Isles to get back. Nino seemed to be getting his legs under him right before he got taken out.
Hopefully he is able to return without any set backs and pick up right from where he left off. However as we've seen all to many times this year in the NHL especially with concussions, you just never know.
