News: The Rangers have sent Micheal Haley back to Connecticut of the AHL and recalled Chris Kreider, tweets Jim Cerny
of the Rangers website.
Analysis:Micheal Haley had very little ice time in his nine game visit to the NHL this season. Previously an undrafted walk on with the Islanders, Haley has very little fantasy value.
News: The Rangers have recalled Micheal Haley from AHL Connecticut.
Analysis:Micheal Haley is presumably on hand in the event that Brad Richards is unable to play Tuesday against the Flyers. He'll provide the Rangers with some fourth-line toughness.
News:Micheal Haley has inked a two-year deal with the Rangers, reports TSN.ca.
Analysis: We can't expect this is much more than a depth move -- Micheal Haley is a ruffian with limited offensive skill. He shuttled between the AHL and NHL last season, and he'll be hard-pressed to even do that with a better Rangers' squad.
News:Micheal Haley was assigned to AHL Bridgeport on Sunday, Arthur Staple of the New York Newsday reports.
Analysis:Micheal Haley was recalled in late March to take the place of injured Casey Cizikas (upper body). The 26-year-old center isn't much of a scoring threat (three career points), but he does have 151 penalty minutes in his 43 NHL games.
News:Micheal Haley was recalled on an emergency basis for the game Saturday, according to Newsday's Arthur Staple.
Analysis:Micheal Haley was taking the place of Casey Cizikas who missed the game with an upper body injury. Haley didn't register a point in the game but did receive a major fighting penalty during the contest.
News: The Islanders have sent Micheal Haley down to AHL Bridgeport, ESPN New York reports.

News: The Islanders recalled Micheal Haley on an emergency basis Saturday, Newsday's Arthur Staple reports.
Analysis:Micheal Haley can really pile up PIMs, but he's unlikely to do anything else if he sees the ice.
News:Micheal Haley has been returned to Bridgeport (AHL), the Isles' official Twitter feed reports.
Analysis: He sat out the last two games after racking up 17 penalty minutes against the Rangers on December 26. He's a depth guy at best for the Isles when called upon, so look elsewhere for a pivot given his limited role and one-category contribution (penalty minutes).
News:Micheal Haley did not practice Tuesday due to a bruised hand, according to the Islanders' official Twitter page.
Analysis:Micheal Haley suffered the injury in a fight with the Rangers' Stu Bickel on Monday night. He should be fine by the time the Islanders next take the ice Thursday.
News: The Islanders have assigned Micheal Haley to AHL Bridgeport, Katie Strang of ESPN reports.
Analysis:Micheal Haley didn't record a point in four NHL appearances this season. If he's called up again this year the only fantasy value he has is in the penalty box.
News:Micheal Haley has been recalled from AHL Bridgeport, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.
Analysis:Micheal Haley is up to replace the injured Mark Eaton. In 27 games last season, he recorded just three points and 13 shots -- expect a similar role this time around as well.
News:Micheal Haley was assigned to Bridgeport (AHL) on Sunday, the Isles' official Twitter feed reports.
Analysis: His offensive contributions will be limited, but Micheal Haley may offer some value for those in need of penalty minutes if he's called up to serve as an enforcer later this season.
News: Haley has agreed to a one-year, two-way contract with the Islanders, NHL.com reports.
Analysis: Haley is primarily an enforcer, though he is also good for the occasional goal or assist. Last season, he registered 12 goals, 10 assists and 144 PIMs between 50 games at AHL Bridgeport. He also made 27 appearances in the NHL, notching three points with 85 PIMs. We can see Haley adding some toughness to the Islanders' lower lines this season.
News: The Islanders extended a qualifying offer to Haley.
Analysis: Haley will fight for a role on the fourth line this season, and though he may best be remembered for his role in the Islanders and Penguins fight night during last season, it's also important to remember that he was leading Bridgeport in scoring at the time he was called up, so he does have more value than just his fists.
News: Haley played versus the Blues Saturday.
Analysis: Haley was originally thought to be a scratch as he was dealing with a bruised knee courtesy of an Alexander Ovechkin slap shot, but he was able to play after all and should be safe to put back in your lineups if you normally would do so.
News: Haley (knee) won't play against St. Louis on Saturday, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Haley is considered day-to-day, so there's no definite word at the moment on when he might be back.
News: Haley, who left Tuesday's game against Washington with a knee injury, won't play Wednesday against the Wild, the Islanders' official site reports.
Analysis: Haley, who has two points in 10 games with the Isles to date, is considered day-to-day. Trevor Gillies will take his place in the lineup Wednesday.
News: Haley left Tuesday's game against Washington with a knee injury and will not return, Newsday's Katie Strang reports.
Analysis: He'll be evaluated again when the Isles return home, so for now we'll just have to consider him day-to-day until more information becomes available.
News: The Islanders recalled Haley from AHL Bridgeport on an emergency basis Friday, the Islanders' official site reports.
Analysis: Haley has 12 goals and 10 assists in 50 AHL games this season while also racking up 144 penalty minutes. He'll give New York a little extra toughness Friday against the Penguins.
