Following activating him, the Islanders placed him on waivers. Unless he gets claimed, Carkner will go to Bridgeport to get back into some game action as he works his way back toward the NHL.
#Isles take Matt Carkner (back surgery) off IR and place him on waivers.I am surprised he is making a return. When he got injured most made it seem like that he would never skate in an Isles uniform again.
