    Wright was recalled by the Islanders on Monday. Wright received the call-up due to Ryan Pulock's move to the IR with an upper-body injury. Considering that Wright hasn't been on NHL ice in over two seasons, it would be very surprising if he was activated for any portion of New York's ongoing playoff campaign.
