IR list grows to 5
The Isles added Trevor Gillies and Nino Niederreiter to their growing IR list today, retroactive to September 30th. Both players are listed with groin injuries.
They join Mark Katic, Rhett Rakhshani and Jeremy Colliton on the IR.
All five are eligible to come off the list before the season actually opens for the Isles on Saturday.
The Isles need to be down to 23 players by 3pm ET on Wednesday. There are currently 24 players on the active roster but this not include Jay Pandolfo and Ryan Strome. Strome (like all players signed in the first 3 rounds of this year's entry draft) must be signed by tomorrow afternoon to be eligible to play for the Isles this season.
