Observations:

 

January 2014 - The Sound Tigers will get their captain back as the Islanders have sent Ness to the AHL club in exchange for Matt Donovan. Ness had three points in 20 games for the big club, unfortunately he was closing in on the teams worst plus/minus. Ness was a horrid minus-13 on the Islanders blueline. Brad Wilson

 

November 2013 - The Islanders defense is in need of healthy bodies and there is no time like the present for Ness to show he belongs on the big stage. He does posses some offensive upside. It won't take long to find out if Ness is able to take advantage of the situation. Brad Wilson

 

October 2013 – Aaron Ness rejoined the Sound Tigers for another campaign when the Isles submitted their 23-man roster without him on it. The Islanders are very deep at defense and Ness will continue his battle to rise to the NHL on a talented Bridgeport team. Brad Wilson

 

 

April 2013 – Ness made his debut with the Islanders in February last season. He appeared in nine games with the Isle in his first pro season after being recalled from AHL Bridgeport. Averaging just under 17 minutes with no points and 2 penalty minutes during his stint with the big club. Ness was the second leading scorer among defensemen for Bridgeport. Ness is regarded as an intelligent offensive defenseman who has quick hands and great speed. Sam Friedman

 

 

Fantasy Outlook: D+

 

Already having experience with the big club is important but Ness has yet to be called up to the Islanders this season. His offensive skill makes him a hot commodity but his lack of size and strength hurt his chances at NHL success. The Islanders have a multitude of young prospects and it will be tough for Ness to find a place on the Islanders roster in the future.
