On Friday morning, as Andrew MacDonald was talking to the media, breaking the bad news that his season is finished, Islanders forward Trevor Gillies was on the ice at the Coliseum getting his practice in before returning to the line up tomorrow night against the Flyers.
“It’s great to have him back,” said oft-linemate Matt Martin. “He’s a big part of our team. He’ll stand up for any one of us and he went through a bit of a tough stretch with a couple suspensions. But I played with him all last year. I’ve never really seen him suspended.”
Martin continued, “It was tough for him, but he handled it well and he’s been very supportive of the guys. We’re very supportive of him as well. It’s definitely good to have him back.”
