The 23-year-old is demanding your attention.

Analysis: Matt Donovan was brought back up for some added depth ahead of Wednesday's game against the Rangers, with Travis Hamonic (concussion) landing on IR.

In 32 games with the Islanders this season, the 23-year-old Donovan has put up one goal, five assists and a minus-10 rating.

News: Matt Donovan (hip) is unlikely to play Thursday vs. the Hurricanes, Newsday's Arthur Staple reports.
Analysis: Matt Donovan was able to take part in Thursday's morning skate, but coach Jack Capuano indicated he was leaning toward using call-up Aaron Ness as his sixth defenseman Thursday to grant Donovan some extra rest.

Isles' Donovan Skips Practice With Hip Injury

News: Matt Donovan missed Wednesday's practice with a hip injury.
Analysis: The Islanders have labeled Matt Donovan as day-to-day, but it seems likely he just got nicked up during Tuesday's loss to the Capitals and was rested Wednesday as a precaution.

Donovan To Start Season With Islanders

News: Matt Donovan has earned a spot with the Islanders, according to Newsday.

Donovan Not Recalled By The Islanders

News: Matt Donovan wasn't recalled by the Islanders this weekend, according to the Islanders Point Blank.
Analysis: Matt Donovan is expected to get that call later this week and be on the roster come opening night. He only played three games with the team last season but with the Isles having a lack of quality defensemen, he will stick with the team if he plays well.
