Preview: Islanders vs. Flyers

The Islanders kick off the 2016 preseason against the Philadelphia Flyers

by Cory Wright WrightsWay / New York Islanders

The New York Islanders kick off their preseason on Monday night, hosting the Philadelphia Flyers at 7 p.m. at Barclays Center.

Islanders first-round picks - Mathew Barzal, Joshua Ho-Sang, Michael Dal Colle and Anthony Beauvillier - will play in Monday's game, skating alongside Ryan Strome, Ryan Pulock, Shane Prince and Eric Boulton.  

"It's important for everybody to showcase what they can bring to our lineup and our identity," head coach Jack Capuano said. "I'm not looking at the result as much as where guys are going to fit, which guys have good hockey IQ that can play within the team concept, but also guys that play with pace and play the way that we want to play.

Renewed Strome could be back at center

The 23-year-old changed his offseason routine, skated as center to open training camp

by Cory Wright WrightsWay / New York Islanders

Ryan Strome was back at center on the first day of Islanders training camp - and it's possible he could be there to start the season as well. 

Strome skated between Anders Lee and Josh Bailey in the second group of Friday's skate at Northwell Health Ice Center and while that move back to center isn't official, the 23-year-old would welcome it. 

"If that's the way it shakes out, then that'd be great," Strome said. "Obviously it'd be a bit of an adjustment just trying to get back to it. Nothing I'm not used to, I've been a centerman a lot of my life."

Islanders Optimistic at Training Camp

The Islanders feel good about their team on the first day of camp

by Cory Wright WrightsWay / New York Islanders

The New York Islanders are feeling pretty optimistic about their upcoming season. 

But after coming off the franchise's first playoff series win since 1993, keeping the young pieces of roster relatively intact and adding some impactful veterans, there's reason to feel pretty good at the start of training camp. 

"We have a big year ahead of us with the team that we have right now. I expect nothing less than to go further than we did last year," Casey Cizikas said at the team's media day on Thursday.

Rookie Camp Wraps Up

Prospects get tuneup week ahead of main training camp

by Cory Wright WrightsWay / New York Islanders

For the past week, the Islanders prospects have been running through drills, learning systems and lifting weights, all in preparation for main camp, which starts Friday. 

It's all practice, but Wednesday night's prospect game against the Philadelphia Flyers offered a chance to show what they'd learned in a game setting. There were no points at stake - the Islanders lost 4-0 - but the stakes on the ice were real. Across from the Islanders was a real opponent, throwing real hits - it was a chippy game highlighted by big hits - forcing them to make real split-second decisions and essentially practice with live rounds.

Dal Colle Building Off Bridgeport Experience

The Islanders' 2014 first-rounder is using his six games in Bridgeport as a spring board to his professional career.

by Cory Wright WrightsWay / New York Islanders

In a perfect world, Michael Dal Colle would have played in the American Hockey League last season, but age restrictions kept him in the junior leagues. 

So while Dal Colle spent the last season - his fourth in junior - between the Oshawa Generals and Kingston Frontenacs, he got a peek behind the AHL curtain at the end of year with a six-game stint with the Bridgeport Sound Tigers. That professional experience spring-boarded him into his first summer as a pro, which he referred to as his "biggest offseason" to date back at Mini Camp in July.
