PROSPECT CAMP ROSTER RELEASED: 91 for Tavares, 3 for de Haan, 34 for Koskinen, 27 for Cizikas

5:35 pm - The roster has been released for Islanders Prospect Camp, held from Friday through next Wednesday at Iceworks in Syosset. (Although we have heard from NYI season ticketholders that they have been able to schedule a visit by appointment on other days, officially camp is only open to the general public on Sunday. Check the team website for details).

 

A few notes on the roster. College players, such as Corey Trivino, Aaron Ness, Rhett Rakhshani and Matt Donovan, are allowed by the NCAA to attend as long as they pay their own way. Casey Cizikas is confirmed to make it on time. Shuhei Kuji from the Japanese National team will be there. No Kirill Petrov (oh well), Jared Spurgeon (minor shoulder injury) or Jyri Niemi (undisclosed injury). John Tavares has been designated uniform number 91.

 

If you haven’t heard of a player on this list, he is most likely an undrafted, unsigned invitee. This means he’s a longshot. While I wish all of them the best, it’s going to take a lot for them to make an impact. Steve Webb did, so there is a precedent.
