Islanders Add Player Depth--Just In Case

LONG ISLAND—Something old. Something new. For the Islanders, henceforth known as the Stanley Cup champion Islanders, there has been the restoration of the old and the ringing in of the new.

They haven’t even leaned on it a little bit.

It’s all a bit of a struggle for Phillipoff because he really hasn’t played for six months, and even then he hadn’t played a great deal under Eddie Johnston and the Chicago Black Hawks. He tore up his ankle tendon just as he was supposed to be getting an excellent shot at making the Hawks on a full time basis, and he remained on the shelf,…
