Poulin Sidelined For The Season

UNIONDALE, NY (WFAN/AP)  – Islanders rookie goalie Kevin Poulin will miss the rest of the season after hurting his knee during pregame warmups.

Poulin caught his skate in a rut in the crease and fell awkwardly Tuesday night minutes before the opening faceoff against the Toronto Maple Leafs. An MRI exam Wednesday revealed a dislocated left knee cap that will require surgery and end the 20-year-old Poulin’s season.

The injury forced the Islanders to start Mikko Koskinen in his NHL debut, a 5-3 loss to the Maple Leafs. New York didn’t have a backup goalie on the bench until the third period, when Joel Martin made it to Long Island from Bridgeport of the AHL.

New York is already missing goalies Rick DiPietro (face, knee) and Nathan Lawson (knee).

The Islanders also say that center Jeremy Colliton will be out for two weeks because of a rib injury sustained Tuesday.

The Islanders have already lost goalie Rick DiPietro for 4-6 week from a fighting injury and Nathan Lawson.
