Nick Leddy and Casey Cizikas both took maintenance days on Thursday, but are expected to be available for Friday night's Islanders-Hurricanes game in Carolina.
Michael Dal Colle practiced in place of Cizikas during Thursday's practice, while Tom Kuhnhackl skated alongside Brock Nelson and Josh Bailey. Head Coach Barry Trotz said Kuhnhackl will make his season debut on Friday, but where has yet to be determined. Noah Dobson practiced in Leddy's spot.
Check back later for IslesTV's coverage of Thursday's practice.
