Dell will be between the pipes against the Islanders on Tuesday.

Dell will make his first NHL start to give starter Martin Jones the night off in the second of back-to-backs. The 27-year-old appeared in 40 AHL contests last season, posting a 17-16-6 record that included four shutouts. Undrafted out of the University of North Dakota, the netminder won the backup job during the preseason despite posting the worst GAA -- 2.48 -- of the four goalies in camp.
