Tom Kuhnhackl missed his second straight day of training camp on Saturday, as is officially day to day with an unspecified minor issue. 

"It's a day-to-day thing, nothing serious," Head Coach Barry Trotz said. "I said 'let's make sure you're 100 percent.' You have a player that you know, it's like anything else, he has a bit of street cred having him. We just want our players to be healthy, so we're just keeping him out a little bit. He would have been on, but we stepped in and said give yourself a day here."

Simon Holmstrom, the Islanders' 2019 first-round pick, also missed Saturday's skate, as he continues to deal with a lingering lower-body issue after blocking a shot in Sweden. Holmstrom is also considered day to day. 

Mitch Vande Sompel is expected to be out for a little while, according to Trotz. Vande Sompel left Friday's session after a hard collision in front of the net. An official update is expected to come.
