Garth Snow was reportedly extremely aggressive in courting top-notch free-agents in the opening of this year's free agent interviewing period which kicked off Wednesday at midnight.
According to Arthur Staple of Newsday, Snow was working the phones starting at 12:01am and apparently reached out to former Rangers center Brad Richards and Pens' defenseman Matt Niskanen. Snow and the Isles gave up their first round pick of 2015 to the Buffalo Sabres in the Thomas Vanek trade, and are determined not to cede a lottery pick such as Connor McDavid or Jack Eichel.

Islanders general manager Garth Snow doesn't expect his team to be much different next season.

The Isles have a solid core, and he's very happy with it. "I don't think there will be too many changes," Snow said. "We want to continue down the road we started. We're just as excited about the prospects we have as the team that played this season. We've had some really good drafts and we have a prospect pool we like, not just some of the players at Bridgeport. It bodes well for the future." The team will continue to build from within but will keep an open mind with regards to trades and free agency.

Garth Snow has been named the Islanders GM after Neil Smith was fired.

This is a rather bizarre move, as Snow went from an active player on Monday to the general manager position. It is hard to figure out what is going on in New York, as Pat LaFontaine also resigned amidst the controversy. Owner Charles Wang has said that the team will be run as a committee, something that Smith did not believe in. It should be an interesting summer on Long Island.

Islanders activated Garth Snow off injured reserve tonight.

Islander backup goalie Garth Snow began his comeback from sprains to both knees last night when he started for Bridgeport of the AHL on a conditioning stint.

Garth Snow left last night's game against the Panthers with just 8.5 seconds left in regulation time with a strained left MCL.

He sustained the injury after he was run over by teammate Alexei Zhitnik and Florida forward Nathan Horton. Snow will be re-evaluated today. If he is unable to play Friday against Carolina, and Rick DiPietro is not ready to return to action, Wade Dubielewicz, who was recalled Monday from Bridgeport and earned last night's victory despite playing 2:24 and making just three saves, will start.

Garth Snow left tonight's game with a leg injury.

Snow was removed from the game with just under 10 seconds left in regulation time due to a leg injury. Wade Dubielewicz came in relief and notched the victory as the Islanders won the game in overtime. With Rick DiPietro already on the shelf, New York can ill afford to lose Snow for an extended period of time. More on the injury as we get it.
