Flyers-Islanders to face off in Prospect Game on Sept. 12 in NY

Division opponents renew their rivalry at end of Rookie Camp

by @NHLFlyers

The Philadelphia Flyers will take on the New York Islanders in a "Prospects Game" on Wednesday, Sept. 12 at Northwell Health Ice Center, the Islanders official practice faculty, at 6 p.m.

The game marks the unofficial end to Rookie Camp which leads into main Flyers Training Camp and is the third straight season the two clubs' prospects will face off against each other.

Last year, the Flyers hosted the Islanders in a rookie game in front of a packed house at the Wells Fargo Center. The Islanders earned a 4-3 comeback win in overtime to exact revenge on a 4-0 loss in the 2016 game in New York. 


The game features many of the club's top prospects on display for fans and team management alike in competition as camps throughout the NHL open later in the week. Last year, Nolan Patrick, Travis Sanheim and Carter Hart played in the contest, which in past seasons has also featured Shayne Gostisbehere, Sean Couturier and Claude Giroux. 

The Flyers own a 6-2-1 record in recent history after taking on the Washington Capitals from 2007-2014. Below is a history of the Flyers Rookie Games:
