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

[He's] real confident with the puck now, getting it off his stick quick and no second-guessing. We need that. He's such a good guy in the room. He works so hard. That's the big thing. For not a big man, he just fights for every puck and when he scores, the guys appreciate that even more.

— Winnipeg Jets coach Paul Maurice on Mathieu Perreault, who scored two goals in win against Chicago Blackhawks on Tuesday
