Uniondale, NY - The New York Islanders announced Wednesday that rookie goaltender Kevin Poulin will require season-ending surgery to repair a dislocated left knee cap.

The 20-year-old was injured during warmups Tuesday night when his left skate caught a divot in the ice. He gingerly skated off the ice with the help of trainers.

Mikko Koskinen made his NHL debut in place of Poulin Tuesday against the Toronto Maple Leafs.

With Rick DiPietro, Nathan Lawson and now Poulin on the shelf and veteran Evgeni Nabokov refusing to report to the club, Koskinen, a 22-year-old Finn, and the untested Joel Martin are the only healthy netminders on the roster.

The Islanders also announced that forward Jeremy Colliton is expected to miss about two weeks with a rib injury and recalled forward Jesse Joensuu from Bridgeport of the American Hockey League while placing DiPietro on injured reserve.
