Islanders expected to place Leo Komarov on unconditional waivers

In something of a surprise move, Arthur Staple of The Athletic reports that veteran forward Leo Komarov is expected to be on unconditional waivers Thursday. The move is set to terminate Komarov’s contract, allowing him to return to the KHL, where he would join SKA St. Petersburg. Komarov never did report to Bridgeport after being assigned to the AHL, but by terminating his deal it would mean forfeiting the remainder of his $2M salary for this season.

Islanders' Leo Komarov: Dealing with an injury

Komarov (undisclosed) has yet to report to Bridgeport of the AHL as he is rehabbing an injury, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports. Komarov was sent down to the AHL on Oct. 19. General manager Lou Lamoriello stated Thursday that the injury is a minor one and that Komarov should report to Bridgeport shortly to play. Komarov will have to prove he is healthy before any chance at a return to the Islanders and likely needs at least one injury or a trade to be called up.

Islanders send Leo Komarov to waivers: What does that mean?

Islanders place veteran forward Leo Komarov on waivers

With Mike Hoffman ready to make his debut, the Montreal Canadiens placed Alex Belzile on waivers. The team was at the maximum 23 roster spots after claiming Adam Brooks earlier this month and needed to make room for Hoffman to come off injured reserve. The New York Islanders also placed Leo Komarov on waivers after the veteran forward played just 10:50 on Saturday night in his only appearance of the season. Matt Martin is likely the cause in this case, as he too is ready to come off injured reserve and reclaim his spot on the team’s fourth line.

Barry Trotz gives Leo Komarov a chance for Islanders, looking for energy

SUNRISE, Fla. — Barry Trotz made his first lineup change of the season for the Islanders.

Islanders' Leo Komarov: Fighting for a roster spot

Komarov is battling with Kieffer Bellows and Michael Dal Colle for what might be one final roster spot on the Islanders, Arthur Staple of The Athletic reports. Komarov could be sent down to the AHL if the Isles believe one of the other players is better for the team or wants to take his salary off the cap. Komarov is a favorite of general manager Lou Lamoriello and coach Barry Trotz, so it's unlikely to be for long, even if he is sent down. Komarov would have to pass through waivers in order to be sent down, but it's not expected that anyone would claim him and his salary.
