Andy Greene was acquired by the islanders to support the Defense Corps

The islanders traded against seasoned defender Andy Greene on Sunday, meeting a need that had persisted since Adam Pelech’s Achilles tendon injury at the end of the season on January 2.

The islanders sent 21-year-old defender David Quenneville, who had one goal and five assists and was minus eight for Bridgeport, and a 2021 second round election to New Jersey for 37-year-old Greene, a left-wing defender who gave up his no-trade clause to reconnect Lou Lamoriello with the islanders.

The islanders, who didn’t train on Sunday, continue their Western road trip with four games against the Arizona Coyotes at the Gila River Arena on Monday afternoon. They were excluded in each of the first two games of the trip.
