Defenseman Mike Mottau is the latest Islanders to be placed on injured reserve with a concussion.

The 33-year-old veteran reportedly suffered the injury during practice; he has been a healthy scratch since last playing December 29 in team's 3-1 win over Calgary.

Mottau joins the ranks of Brian Rolston, Nino Niederreiter, Rick DiPietro, Al Montoya and David Ullstrom -- all of whom have spent time on IR with concussions.

Bridgeport defenseman Dylan Reese has been recalled on an emergency basis.
