The Islanders will hit the ice for the first time on September 8 when the team opens rookie camp at Northwell Health Ice Center on Long Island.
The camp will run until September 13 and will give the Islanders coaching staff an early look at several young players who are expected to make a run at a roster spot this season. Among the players participating in rookie camp are Josh Ho-Sang, Michael Dal Colle, Mathew Barzal, Matthew Gaudreau, Devon Toews and Sebastian Aho.
Ho-Sang had an impressive 21 game stint with the Islanders at the end of the 2016-17 season and is expected to make the roster out of training camp this season. Barzal lit up the WHL and could very well make the Islanders roster right out of training camp as well.
Below is the complete rookie camp roster:
Michael Dal Colle
Travis St. Denis
Mitchell Vande Sompel
