Trade Deadline 2015: Islanders get Michal Neuvirth, Tyler Kennedy; Chad Johnson off to Buffalo

Sabres trade Neuvirth to the Islanders for Johnson, third-round pick

Johnson has played 19 games with the Islanders this season, posting a 8-8-1 record, .889 save percentage, and a 3.08 goals against average. He's signed through next season at a cap hit of $1.3 million, meaning he'll likely be the team's backup goaltender next season. Neuvirth played 29 games total for the Sabres since...
