Islanders activate Jaroslav Halak from IR

Larry Brooks of the New York Post joins HC at Noon to talk about the level of interest the Rangers have in Jonathan Drouin and how the team is looking to add to the roster.

The New York Islanders have activated goaltender Jaroslav Halak off of injured reserve.

Halak hasn’t played since Dec. 21 after suffering an upper-body injury, but took part in a full team practice on Tuesday.

The 30-year-old has played in 20 games this season, going 10-6-3 with a .923 save percentage and 2.09 goals-against average.

Thomas Greiss made all five starts in Halak’s absence.

Goaltender Christopher Gibson was assigned to the Bridgeport Sound Tigers of the AHL. He made one appearance in relief of Greiss, stopping 16 of 17 shots.
