Islanders reacquire D Meyer from Coyotes
November 10th, 2007

Uniondale, NY (Sports Network) - The New York Islanders claimed Freddy Meyer off re-entry waivers from the Phoenix Coyotes on Saturday, reacquiring the defenseman they lost earlier in the season.

The Islanders tried to send Meyer to Bridgeport of the AHL on October 7, placing him on waivers. Phoenix claimed him the following day and Meyer appeared in five games for the Coyotes before he was once again waived.

New York needed depth on the blue line with both Bryan Berard and Aaron Johnson out with injuries.

"The injuries we've recently had on our blue line prove you can never have enough depth," said Islanders general Garth Snow. "We've always liked Freddy. He's an intense competitor and he's a very solid defenseman in all areas who is still just 26-years-old. We only lost him earlier in the season because of a numbers game. We are very happy to have Freddy back as an Islander."
