The Islanders won’t classify any of their injured players as being out long term, instead listing their missing six as day-to-day.

Still, coach Lane Lambert announced before Thursday night’s 2-1 win over the Blue Jackets at UBS Arena that defenseman Adam Pelech (injured reserve/suspected head injury) and forwards Oliver Wahlstrom (unspecified) and Simon Holmstrom (left leg) will not accompany the team on its upcoming trip to Seattle, Vancouver, Edmonton and Calgary.

That means Pelech, who missed his 10th game on Thursday and has yet to resume skating, will miss at least a month.

Lambert did announce that right wings Kyle Palmieri (injured reserve/upper body) and Cal Clutterbuck (injured reserve/upper body) and goalie Semyon Varlamov (injured reserve/lower body) will make the trip. Those three have resumed skating and presumably will rejoin the team for at least practices on the road.

Lambert said it had yet to be determined if third goalie Cory Schneider will travel with the team after serving as Ilya Sorokin’s backup in Varlamov’s absence.

The Islanders will open the western swing against the Kraken on Sunday.

Palmieri missed his sixth game on Thursday and his 16th of the last 17. Clutterbuck also missed his sixth game and Varlamov was sidelined for the fifth game.

Wahlstrom was helped off the ice after his first shift in Tuesday’s 5-1 win over the Penguins after taking a retaliatory hit from defenseman Pierre-Olivier Joseph. Holmstrom was injured in a knee-to-knee collision with Sam Bennett in this past Friday’s 5-1 win over the Panthers.
