Mini Camp is officially a go!
The New York Islanders annual summer development camp kicked off on Monday, with the organization's prospects coming to Northwell Health Ice Center for a week of on-and off-ice workouts with the Islanders and Bridgeport Sound Tigers coaching staffs.
The prospects, which include 2019 first-round pick Simon Holmstrom, 2018 first-round picks Oliver Wahlstrom and Noah Dobson, 2016 first-round pick Kieffer Bellows, and 2017 second-rounder Robin Salo, will be split into two groups - blue and white - for daily skates from Tuesday-Saturday.
The annual Blue and White Scrimmage will take place on Thursday night, featuring three 20-minute games and a skills competition. Tickets are still available and the Islanders I.C.E. Tour will be outside and open to the public starting at 5:30 p.m and will include a slap shot booth, obstacle course and moon bounce, as well as appearances by Sparky and the Ice Girls. This year's scrimmage will feature a 50/50 raffle. Tickets can be purchased at Northwell Health Ice Center in the leadup to Thursday's game.
The prospects will play a second scrimmage on Saturday, but that session is closed to the public.
