Devon Toews called up from minors

Toews was recalled from AHL Bridgeport on Saturday.

Toews is not related to Chicago's star forward Jonathan Toews, but he's still one impressive individual. The 23-year-old is a terrific passer from the blue line, as evidenced by his 40 helpers in 76 games with the AHL's Sound Tigers last season. The Islanders' 2014 fourth-round (108th overall) draft choice has yet to make his NHL debut, however, so it'll be interesting to see what's in store for him this year. His getting a look this late in training camp bodes well for his near-term outlook.
