Nino's here for good
No big surprise because there was no real talk about it but Nino Niederreiter will finish the season with the Islanders.
With the passing of the NHL trading deadline, he is no longer eligible to be returned to the WHL. He is also not eligible to play for Bridgeport.
Forever1940 is the nom de plume of Eric Hornick, statistician on Islander home telecasts since January 21, 1982. Visit my blog: NYISkinny.com and follow me on Twitter @ehornick
