Today, in anticipation of the NHL coming out the Olympic break the Islanders called up Anders Lee, Ryan Strome, and Mike Halmo from Bridgeport.
The call up of Strome was expected since he was sent down a couple weeks before the break. Meanwhile, the call up of Lee was expected by some given the Islanders current injury situation. Halmo getting the call though was a surprise to many.
The trio combined to form Bridgeport's top line for most of this season. In 54 games for the Sound Tigers Lee has managed to put up 22 goals and 19 assists along with 83 penalty minutes. Those 22 goals were enough to lead the Tigers and his 41 points were second on the team behind Strome. Meanwhile, Halmo managed 17 goals and 20 assists and 116 penalty minutes in 53 games for Bridgeport.
With the trio having a lot of success as a unit in Bridgeport this year I wonder if they will keep them together as a line up here.
