Quick View: Trevor Gillies, Saturday's enforcer

So the Islanders have rediscovered the enforcer role, signing AHL Bridgeport's Trevor Gillies to a NHL contract and calling him up in time for Saturday's matinee in Philadelphia. (Tim Jackman, who had become the Islanders' resident enforcer-by-default, is still injured.)
