Ty Wishart has been brought up from the minors by the Islanders.

The 22-year-old blueliner was acquired from Tampa Bay in the deal that sent Dwayne Roloson to the Lightning.

New York also summoned goaltender Kevin Poulin and defenseman Dylan Reese from the minors following the All-Star break.

The New York Islanders have acquired defenseman Ty Wishart from the Lightning in exchange for Dwayne Roloson.

Wishart is a former first round pick of the Sharks who has not yet experienced any success at the NHL level, playing just five games with the Lightning in 2008-09. He`s still young enough to find his way, but since he`s not a premium prospect ìt would seem that the Islanders simply wanted to derive some value from a soon-to-be unrestricted free agent in Roloson. Saving a few bucks in the process probably didn`t hurt either.
