After a day off on Monday, the New York Islanders were back on the ice on Tuesday morning, ramping up with two days until their season opener.
The Islanders went down to one group Tuesday, a veteran squad that closely resembled the playoff roster from the summer.
See below for the group, notes video and player interviews.
Forwards: Josh Bailey, Mathew Barzal, Anthony Beauvillier, Kieffer Bellows, Casey Cizikas, Cal Clutterbuck, Austin Czarnik, Michael Dal Colle, Jordan Eberle, Ross Johnston, Leo Komarov, Anders Lee, Matt Martin, Brock Nelson and Jean-Gabriel Pageau
Defense: Samuel Bolduc, Noah Dobson, Andy Greene, Thomas Hickey, Nick Leddy, Scott Mayfield, Adam Pelech and Ryan Pulock
Goalies: Ilya Sorokin and Semyon Varlamov
Casey Cizikas was on the ice for Tuesday's practice after an awkward collision during Sunday's scrimmage. Trotz said Cizikas should be okay to play in Thursday's season opener vs the Rangers.
"He seems to be a go," Trotz said. "Obviously we had a little scare the other day, but he felt pretty good."
Bellows Impressing Trotz:
Barry Trotz said that Kieffer Bellows has continued to impress him during training camp and that he's worked himself into the mix for a spot on the Islanders opening night roster.
"I feel he's had a real strong camp. He's worked himself into the mix of the opening night roster," Trotz said.
Sorokin Meets Media:
Ilya Sorokin spoke to the media for the first time since signing with the Islanders in July. Sorokin talked about acclimating to the Islanders, his experience in the bubble, learning English, and more. Read more here, or watch his availability below.
