The 28-year-old KHL veteran did not report to Bridgeport after the Islanders cut him during camp and assigned him to their AHL team. Earlier this week he wasA reportedly a€œfiguring outa€ his next move. That move is...not with the Isles.

KovA¡r was signed to a one-year, $2 million deal this summer a€” apparently selecting the Isles over offers from a few NHL teams a€” but somehow did not make a big impression in training camp during the few opportunities he received.
