Jake Bischoff has inked a two-year, entry-level deal with the New York Islanders.

Johnny Boychuk (lower body) missed his 12th consecutive game on Monday.

Boychuk did take part in Monday's morning skate though. "Johnny is close. It’s good to see him out there today," Islanders coach Doug Weight said. "Hopefully we can get two or three really good days of practice here and see what he has for us on Thursday." Boychuk has six goals and 21 points in 59 games this season.

Nikolay Kulemin (upper body) will miss Thursday and Friday's games.

It remains to be seen how much more time Kulemin will miss beyond those contests. "He’s got some discomfort. The plan of attack is to work every day and see if he can get back on the ice," Islanders coach Doug Weight said. "It’s not going to be longer than two, three weeks. Best-case scenario would be the end of the week, and I don’t know that’s going to happen." The issue with it potentially taking two or three weeks is that there's less than three weeks left in the season. In other words, it's possible that Kulemin won't return before the campaign ends.

Goalie Thomas Greiss turned away all but two of the 30 shots he faced during the New York Islanders' 3-1 loss Monday night to the visiting Nashville Predators.

Shane Prince will be a healthy scratch in Monday's game against the Nashville Predators.
