Throughout the summer, Islanders players will be participating in the I.C.E. Tour, which is making stops all over Long Island. Last week, Trent Hunter spent his time on the Island visiting schools, cooking hot dogs, signing autographs and shaking hands with hundreds of fans.
Beginning on Tuesday, Hunter helped promote the revamped Islanders Business Club at an intimate luncheon at Morton's Steakhouse in Great Neck. Later that night, Hunter made a stop at the Long Beach Ice Arena to say hi to the Freeport Arrows youth hockey team.
“It’s great to come down and see so many kids playing hockey, especially in the summer months like this,” said Hunter “I hope they enjoy the game as much as I do and continue to keep playing such a great sport.”
On Wednesday, Hunter visited George Washington Elementary in West Hempstead, where he had the opportunity to play street hockey with the students during the school's annual field day.
Following his competitive morning, Hunter toned things down with a signing at the Islanders Team Store that attracted over 200 fans to the Broadway Mall in Hicksville.
Thursday saw Hunter play co-host with Freddy Meyer at the first sectional barbeque. Signing autographs and helping with the cookout, Hunter and Meyer shared stories with season ticketholders from the 200 sections at Cantiague Park.

"This has been a great week for me to meet with so many Islanders fans," said Hunter. "From visiting schools and ice rinks to visiting the team store and being at the sectional barbeque, it was a fun week. I look forward to seeing everyone again once training camp starts."
