Travis Hamonic is day-to-day due to a lower-body injury and will likely not play Wednesday night, Islanders head coach Jack Capuano said Tuesday.
Adam Pelech, who was recalled from Bridgeport of the AHL on Jan. 5, "is going to get a chance," according to Capuano.
Pelech had been activated off injured reserve and loaned to Bridgeport late last month.
He was placed on IR in early December due to an upper-body injury.
The 22-year-old defenseman has three points (one goal, two assists) in nine games with the Islanders this season.
