While the active New York Islanders had a day off on Friday, a pair of injured Isles took the ice at Northwell Health Ice Center. 

Defenseman Adam Pelech, who missed Thursday's 4-3 loss to Washington with an upper-body injury, and winger Shane Prince, who's recovering from a lower-body injury, skated with coaches during the private session. 

Pelech is considered day-to-day, while Prince is approximately two-and-a-half months into his 4-6 month recovery timeline. 

Pelech has four assists this season, appearing in all of the Islanders first 12 games before his injury, and had rotated in on the Islanders power play. Prince recorded 18 points (5G, 13A) in 50 games last season.
