Orange and Blue Scrimmage, 7:00pm ET
Nassau Coliseum — Uniondale, NY — IslesTV
The Islanders prospects face off tonight at the Coliseum after a week of mini-camp. It’s not a traditional game day but hey, it’s about as good as we’ll get until at least September. It’s also a great chance to see a lot of the new draft picks and other players you wouldn’t normally see on Coliseum ice. It ends with a skills competition and shootout, which is fun especially because no one can complain about its impact on the standings.
Here’s the quick info that you need to know for tonight. It’s $10 to get in, $10 to park and if you can’t make it out to the Coliseum, the game will be streamed live and free on the Islanders website.
