Islanders suspend Nabokov for not reporting
The 35-year-old goaltender signed a one-year contract with Detroit on Thursday.
The NHL’s collective bargaining agreement states that anyone who plays in a professional league before signing an NHL contract must clear waivers.
Nabokov has been disappointed that he won’t be joining the Stanley Cup-contending Red Wings. Instead he is now under contract with the Islanders, who are far out of the Eastern Conference playoff race.
“I’m just a coach _ we try to prepare our team to win the game. That’s for our general manager, obviously, to make the decisions that he makes,” coach Jack Capuano said.
New York entered Tuesday with the third-worst goals-against average (3.20) in the league.
“I don’t know what will happen with that situation, but it’s not something we’re worried about,” rookie defenseman Dylan Reese said. “We’re worried about getting wins right now, and if he comes, he comes and if he doesn’t, he doesn’t.”
Rookie goalie Kevin Poulin _ who likely would have been sent back down to the American Hockey League had Nabokov reported _ was strong Tuesday night in Pittsburgh, stopping 30 of 31 shots.
“He didn’t come,” Poulin said of Nabokov, “so too bad for him.”
