The New York Islanders kick off their preseason against the Philadelphia Flyers, playing a pair of split-squad games at 7 p.m.

The Islanders and Flyers will play a pair of games simultaneously, with half the training camp roster suiting up at Barclays Center, while the other half dresses at PPL Center in Allentown, PA. Click here to purchase tickets.

John Tavares headlines the Islanders roster at Barclays Center, as the captain is one of 11 Isles regulars playing in Brooklyn. Joining him will be Nick Leddy, Johnny Boychuk, Anders Lee, Matt Martin and Cal Clutterbuck. 

Goaltenders Jaroslav Halak and Stephon Williams are both on the Barclays Center roster, though Head Coach Jack Capuano hasn’t revealed who will start, or how he’ll play his goalies. 

Marek Zidlicky and Steve Bernier, who will take the ice in Brooklyn, make their Islanders debut Monday. Zidlicky signed a one-year deal with the Islanders Friday, while Bernier, a PTO invitee, inked a one-year deal Thursday. 

Mathew Barzal, the Islanders first-round pick in 2015, is also slated to play in Brooklyn, marking his second game at Barclays Center after the Blue & White Scrimmage in July. 

While the Islanders are icing a more experienced squad at Barclays Center, the roster in Pennsylvania is brimming with potential with a host of high draft picks and top prospects. 

First-round picks Michael Dal Colle (2014), Anthony Beauvillier (2015) and Ryan Pulock (2013) will skate together, alongside Islanders regulars Casey Cizikas, Brian Strait and Calvin de Haan. Scott Mayfield, Kevin Czuczman and the recently-acquired Taylor Beck are on the Allentown roster. 

A goaltender – or potentially two goaltenders – will make his Islanders debut in Allentown, as Thomas Greiss and Christopher Gibson make the trip to Pennsylvania. Greiss signed a two-year deal with the Islanders in July, while Gibson was acquired in a trade with the Toronto Maple Leafs Thursday. The starter and split has not been determined.
