Czuczman is a product of the same Toronto Bulldog program that Ryan Strome played in as a youngster. He apparently also frequents the same Toronto gym where John Tavares, Casey Cizikas and Strome train.
Czuczman is a few months younger than Travis Hamonic and a few month older than Calvin deHaan.
The NHL's 23-man roster limit does not apply after the trade deadline so Czuczman could become the 24th player on the Isles' active roster without the team making any additional move.
If he plays for the Islanders, he will join JIm Dowd (3 games), Doug Weight and Brian Rolston as players who have appeared in games for both Lake State and for the Islanders.
