The New York Islanders have acquired Marc-Andre Cliche from the Colorado Avalanche for Taylor Beck.
It was a deal of minor leaguers as Cliche was sent to the minors at the start of the season while Beck was also in the minors. Cliche had six goals and 19 points in 38 games with San Antonio of the AHL after he had spent all of the last two seasons with the Avs as a bottom-six forward. Mon, Feb 29, 2016 03:22:00 PM

Look for Marc-Andre Cliche to draw back in against Dallas Saturday night.

He was a healthy scratch against the Rangers Thursday to allow Avs' coach Patrick Roy to dress seven defensemen. Roy has indicated he may not dress that many rearguards against the Stars, so there is a good chance Cliche will get to dress.

Marc-Andre Cliche, Zach Redmond and Reto Berra are all healthy scratches in Thursday's game against Florida.

Marc-Andre Cliche will be a healthy scratch Thursday against Florida.

Dennis Everberg is back up from the minors and he'll go right into the lineup. "We're going to have an extra forward and I think it's going to creat some competition," coach Patrick Roy said. "(Thursday night), it's going to be him, the next game it could be (Daniel) Briere, it could be (Max) Talbot, we'll make a decision. Let's see how our guys play (Thursday) and then we'll make decisions. I think it's healthy for our team in that it creates competition."
