Scott Mayfield, Johan Sundstrom Recalled to New York Islanders

So we meet again. - Mike Stobe

With @#$% injuries, comes opportunity.

The New York Islanders play Sunday in Columbus after losing via shootout at home to Washington on Saturday. In addition to the skills drill loss, they lost Michael Grabner and Calvin de Haan to injury.

That means, fire up the rookie train again.

Johan Sundstrom -- who, to make room for Grabner's one-period return, had only enough time to go to Bridgeport for his demotion Saturday -- and Scott Mayfield get the call from AHL Bridgeport.

Sundstrom, of course, already has nine NHL games under his belt during this late-season onslaught of injuries and rookie recals.

Mayfield, meanwhile, gets his first recall at age 21. He is both a bruiser and a player with some offensive skills. With Matt Donovan and Calvin de Haan up in the NHL, Mayfield was the top scorer among active Bridgeport defensemen. But this time of year, that comes with a caveat: Eight of the top 10 Bridgeport scorers are not with the club, five of them being recalled to the Isles.

Neither Mayfield nor Sundstrom played in Bridgeport's 4-3 shootout loss Saturday. (Among those who did: New ATOs and fellow Isles draft picks Victor Crus Rydberg and Jesse Graham, who got his first pro assist.) Assuming they play Sunday, they'll be thrown into the fire against a Columbus team that needs that game to continue its playoff push.
