The Tampa Bay Lightning have claimed goaltender Kevin Poulin off the waiver wire from the New York Islanders, the club announced Sunday.

Ray Emery, who was attending the Lightning's camp camp on a professional tryout contract, was subsequently released.

Tampa Bay has been looking for help in net in light of injuries suffered by Andrei Vasilevskiy and Kristers Gudlevskis.

Poulin was placed on waivers by the Islanders on Saturday, who had both Jaroslav Halak and Thomas Greiss ahead of him on their depth chart. The 25-year-old has appeared in 50 NHL games, posting a record of 18-25-3, with a save percentage of .899.
