Islanders goalie Rick DiPietro cleared waivers and was assigned to Bridgeport, the team's American Hockey League affiliate.

In announcing the move Saturday before their game at Buffalo, New York also recalled goalie Kevin Poulin from Bridgeport. Poulin is expected to take over the role of backup behind starter Evgeni Nabokov. This season, DiPietro is 0-3 with a 4.09 goals-against average in three games.

Sharks' Clowe faces hearing reported that Sharks forward Ryane Clowe faces a disciplinary hearing Monday for an incident during Friday's game versus the Blackhawks. Clowe, who was suspended pending the outcome of Monday's meeting, was assessed a minor penalty and a game misconduct for leaving the bench to start an altercation. He could be suspended 10 games without pay, and San Jose would be fined $10,000.
