Isles Day to Day: Ladd Practices in No-Contact Jersey

Andrew Ladd was on the ice with the Islanders for Saturday's session at Northwell Health Ice Center

by Cory Wright WrightsWay / NewYorkIslanders.com

Andrew Ladd is still a little ways from returning to game action, but the Islanders forward practiced with the team - in a non-contact jersey - for the first time this season on Saturday.

Ladd, who is not expected to return until the latter part of November as he recovers from a torn ACL, is expected to continue skating with the Islanders without contact for the forseeable future. 

"The plan right now is that he'll practice with us in a non-contract jersey for a while," Head Coach Barry Trotz said. "He'll be a bit limited, but just being around the guys and part of the group will mentally, be real good for him."

Isles Day to Day: Down to One Group

Following a series of roster cuts, the Islanders are down to one on-ice practice group

by Sasha Kandrach KandrachSasha / NewYorkIslanders.com

Following a second round of cuts, in which the club assigned 12 players to Bridgeport, the Islanders are now down to 40 players on the training camp roster. 

As the numbers decreased, the intensity increased on Thursday. The remaining group knows the stakes are high with only one more preseason game left to make an impression on the coaching staff and management to show they deserve a spot on the Opening Night roster. That desperation and determination showed at Thursday's intense practice at Northwell Health Ice Center, which focused on ironing out lines and defensive pairs, working on special teams, breakouts and speed of play.

Isles Day to Day: Kuhnhackl Day to Day

Tom Kuhnhackl and Simon Holmstrom are both considered day to day, while Mitch Vande Sompel is expected to be out a while

by Cory Wright WrightsWay / NewYorkIslanders.com

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.
