The New York Islanders are back at Barclays Center Wednesday, taking on the New Jersey Devils in preseason action at 7 p.m.

Five Islanders regulars – Kyle Okposo, Frans Nielsen, Travis Hamonic, Brock Nelson and Ryan Strome – will make their preseason debuts Wednesday. Okposo, Strome, Nielsen and Nelson were four of the Islanders five leading scorers last season. 

Goaltender Kevin Poulin will make his preseason debut, as will forward Ross Johnston. Christopher Gibson is the second goalie on Wednesday’s roster and while head coach Jack Capuano has not specified who will start, all four goalies on Monday’s rosters saw ice time. 

John Tavares and Anders Lee – who each had a goal and an assist Monday – round out Wednesday’s roster. First-round picks Michael Dal Colle (2014), Anthony Beauvillier (2015) and Ryan Pulock (2013) will also play. 

This is the third meeting between the Islanders and Devils at Barclays Center. The Islanders won the most recent meeting 3-2 in a shootout. 

Wednesday’s game will be broadcast at 7 p.m. on MSG+.
