Islanders Prepare For First Preseason Test

Islanders Insight's picture



It’s that time of the year, isn’t it?

The time when leaves start to change color; people fire up their furnaces after a long, dormant summer; the cool, crisp morning air overwhelms you when you awake in shorts and a T-shirt; and viruses seem to run rampant, causing everything from a stuffy nose to a full-blown four-week head cold.

Oh, I almost forgot. It’s also time for hockey.

Training camps all around the National Hockey League are open and the preseason officially began last night with five games. Another 12 preseason matchups are on the slate for today and tonight.

Islanders Top Shelf: 9/22/14 — Isles Train At Training Camp With Training-Type Drills

Islanders Insight's picture


This weekend marked the official beginning of the 2014-15 NHL season for the New York Islanders, as the full complement of 63 players arrived on Long Island for training camp. With that many bodies in one place, head coach Jack Capuano split his team into three separate groups so that more individualized attention could be given to each skater. This is the most competitive training camp in recent memory on the Island; no longer are certain players guaranteed roster spots just because they held them last season.

Islanders Get Legs Moving; Take To Ice For Training Camp

Islanders Insight's picture



The New York Islanders took to the ice yesterday morning at Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum as the 2014-15 season officially began at 9:12 a.m. ET.

As to be expected, there was not much to be learned from Day One, neither from the groupings nor from the intense, up-tempo practices that head coach Jack Capuano and his assistant, Greg Cronin ran.

Training camp is officially open.

Let the news, rumors, propaganda, lineup and trade suggestions, and overall hate towards Josh Bailey begin.

Yesterday, the Islanders took the ice with three groups skating in up-tempo practices that pushed rookies and veterans alike on their first day back.

It was a welcome sight to see hockey officially back on Long Island, but the Islanders don’t have much time to rest on their laurels and leisurely work their way back into game shape.

The New York Islanders are skating….on ice….TOGETHER! Oh, happy days.

Training camp is officially underway on Long Island, as the Islanders took the Nassau Coliseum ice for the first time since April. There are many familiar facesand a few unfamiliar onesbut all of them are taking part in the hottest competition at an Isles training camp in years.

Sit back and enjoy the return of Islanders hockey. In two weeks, the team will have its 23-man roster finalized for Opening Night; then the real fun begins.

In any other year, what the Islanders did in the offseason would be the main story.

This young team is finally coming together. They have some veteran presence, a goaltender, and an amazing young core. But, something is eating at Isles fans.

The home that fans have known for over 40 years will soon be a thing of the past.
