Those two returning from injury meant that there was a need to send someone out, and the Isles chose to waive Jon Sim. Matt Martin is sticking around.
"Had he not gotten hurt in camp, Marty's a guy that probably would have stayed with us to start the year," Scott Gordon said. "He didn't have much of a training camp. He's done what we wanted these first couple games, so we decided to stick with him."
Milan Jurcina (hamstring) won't be back soon, so Bruno Gervais will be getting some playing time.
