The New York Islanders top prospects carved out a character 5-4 shootout win against the Philadelphia Flyers prospects on Wednesday night at PPL Center in Allentown, PA. Oliver Wahlstrom scored the shootout winner, as the Isles rallied from a three-goal deficit in a dramatic rookie contest. Felix Bibeau, David Quenneville, Samuel Bolduc and Otto Koivula scored in regulation for the Islanders.
"I thought it was a pretty intense game for a rookie game," Bridgeport Sound Tiger Head Coach Brent Thompson said. "The work ethic, the character, the guys pulled together, they kept pushing and they got rewarded. I'm obviously very happy with the first game and what we can build from there."
