The Islanders have recalled Kevin Poulin and Rhett Rakhshani from the Bridgeport Sound Tigers, and simultaneously placed Marty Reasoner on injured reserved this afternoon.

Reasoner has been place on IR retroactive to January 6 with a broken hand.

Rakhshani has played in 27 games, scoring nine goals and 16 assists. He also represented Bridgeport in the 2011 AHL All-Star Classic and was named to the AHL All-Rookie First Team. And Kevin Poulin has spent time backing up for Evgeni Nabokov, while Al Montoya had been injured. He appeared in two NHL games this season, losing in both appearances.

Big question coming from this call is, what’s the deal with Al Montoya? He started against the Maple Leafs last Tuesday and seemed to be healthy.  There could be a possibility that he is still suffering some effects of his previous injury.

Will update as story develops.
