Adam Pelech has been activated from I/R and loaned to the Bridgeport Sound Tigers of the AHL.

Adam Pelech (upper body) was on the ice again on Monday.

The NHL roster freeze is now in effect, so Pelech can't be sent down until Dec. 28, if the Islanders wish to do so at all. It's possible that he'll return to the Islanders' lineup on Friday.

Adam Pelech has started skating again as he has been out since November 28 with an upper body injury.

The defenseman will likely see some AHL time during his recovery. He has a goal and two assists in nine games thus far after spending the first three weeks of the season in the minors. He has limited fantasy value at best.

Adam Pelech (upper body) has been moved to the injured reserve list.

Pelech's shift to the IR list probably has less to do with any new information about his status and more to do with the fact that Dennis Seidenberg was ready to be activated, so those moves cancel each other out from a roster size perspective. Pelech has a goal and three points in nine games this season.

Coach Jack Capuano will forego any lineup changes for Saturday's Game 2 versus Tampa Bay.

Which means Adam Pelech will be joined by a cast of mostly injured Islanders; Brian Strait, Eric Boulton, Jaroslav Halak, James Wright, Anders Lee, and Mikhail Grabovski.

Adam Pelech, Eric Boulton, and Christopher Gibson will each be scratched in Friday's Game 5 against Florida.

No surprises here, as each have served merely as desperate injury fill-ins all season long. Pelech, however, may see some time should Marek Zidlicky falter in Ryan Pulock's absence.

Adam Pelech (upper body) returned to action on Saturday.

Adam Pelech (upper body) could be ready to return to practice Monday.

Pelech has been out of the lineup since January 17th so this is great news for the Islanders. Pelech could return to the New York lineup shortly but is likely going to need a conditioning stint with Bridgeport of the AHL or possibly even stay down in the minors. It was originally thought that the injury could be career threatening so to be able to come back just a couple of months later is great news.

Adam Pelech has started skating again.

Pelech has started skating either by himself or with other injured Islander teammates. He is still considered to be 'several weeks' away from making any return to the Isles' lineup. Pelech has been out of the lineup since January 17. This is a remarkable recovery as his injury was once considered to be career ending.

Adam Pelech's upper-body injury is will "almost certainly" end his season, according to Arthur Staple's sources.

Pelech is still undergoing tests though, so nothing is certain yet. We don't have a lot of details about the nature of Pelech's injury, but Islanders coach Jack Capuano described it as a "freak thing."
