Due to the Bill Guerin trade limbo, the Islanders have called up young Finnish prospect Jesse Joensuu. The 6'4" Joensuu is expected to make his NHL debut this evening (3/2) against Colorado. This year with Bridgeport the winger has scored 17 goals in 56 games. You can view his entire career ledger here. Please note that Joensuu was drafted in the round immediately following the selection of Kyle Okposo.
However slowly, some of the Islanders' recent draft picks are making their way to the big club. We wish Joensuu the best as he joins the NHL fraternity this evening.
