Islanders Trim Training Camp Roster
The New York Islanders announced Monday that the team has reduced their training camp roster to 28 players (17 forwards, nine defensemen and two goaltenders) remaining in camp.
The following players have all been assigned to the Bridgeport Sound Tigers (AHL): Sebastian Aho, Kieffer Bellows, Michael Dal Colle, Ben Holmstrom, Josh Ho-Sang, Jeremy Smith, Travis St. Denis and Parker Wotherspoon.
Noah Dobson has been assigned to his Quebec Major Junior Hockey League team, Acadie-Bathurst.
The Islanders continue their preseason schedule Wednesday when they take on the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden at 7 p.m. The team will conclude their preseason schedule on Friday, Sept. 28 at 7 p.m. when they take on the Buffalo Sabres at the General Motors Centre in Oshawa, ON.
The Sound Tigers' 2018 preseason schedule features two exhibition games against the Hartford Wolf Pack. Both games will take place at 1 p.m. at the Koeppel Community Sports Center on the campus of Trinity College in Hartford. The Sound Tigers will be designated as the home team for the first of the two meetings, which will be held Friday, September 28. The exhibition slate concludes the following day, Saturday, September 29.
Both contests are open to the public with a suggested $5 donation to the Ryan Gordon/Hartford Wolf Pack Community Scholars Fund in lieu of an admission charge. The fund memorializes young fan Ryan Gordon, who passed away in 2006 and asked that a portion of the monies set aside for his college education be donated to the Hartford Wolf Pack Community Foundation.
