Islanders activate Nabokov

The New York Islanders activated goaltender Evgeni Nabokov off injured reserve on Monday.

In eight games for the Islanders this season, Nabokov has not lived up to expectations, posting just a 1-5-0 record with a 2.83 goals-against average.

Nabokov hasn't played since October 17 due to a groin injury.

To make room on the roster, forward Micheal Haley was sent down to Bridgeport of the American Hockey League.
