He'll provide an NHL-experienced defenseman who can be called on should more injuries hit the blue line.

He was recalled from Bridgeport (AHL) seven times and posted 13 points (four goals) in 56 games with the Sound Tigers. Callahan is merely organizational depth and can be ignored in Fantasy.
News:The Sports Xchange reports Islanders D Joe Callahan, who appeared in 16 games earlier this season, was recalled from AHL Bridgeport Wednesday because leading scorer Mark Streit was forced to miss Wednesday's game against Washington because of a strained groin. Callahan had no points in 13 minutes against the Capitals.

In the Calder Cup Playoffs, the Pirates made it to the Eastern Conference Finals and Callahan led the team defense in scoring with a goal and 11 assists for 12 points in 18 games.

Analysis: The team also released Tyler Bouck and assigned youngsters Maxime Macenauer to Rouyn-Noranda of the QMJHL and Eric Tangradi to Belleville of the OHL to the juniors. None of the players mentioned above are worthy of any Fantasy consideration.
