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.
