Islanders invite six to camp
The New York Islanders are bringing six players to training camp on professional tryouts.

Jed Ortmeyer accepted his invitation Monday. Ortmeyer posted NHL career-highs in goals (8), assists (11) and points (19) in 76 games with the San Jose Sharks last season. He has skated in 306 NHL games with the New York Rangers, Nashville Predators and Sharks. Ortmeyer turned pro with the Rangers in 2003-04 after a four-year collegiate career at the University of Michigan.

Also coming to camp are defenseman Anders Erikkson, forwards Dean McAmmond and Krys Kolanos and goaltenders Manny Legace and Joel Martin.
Quote of the Day

I loved being in the jerseys again and they worked some magic for us. It was weird in warm-ups, seeing No. 22 in that jersey and thinking he’s [Mike Gartner], and No. 8 reminds you of Danny Briere … every number had me thinking back to the guys who wore them and smiling.
