by Jonathan Velazquez / New York Islanders

Three Prospects Named to Canada’s WJC Camp

Mathew Barzal, Anthony Beauvillier and Michael Dal Colle were named to Team Canada’s World Juniors selection camp Tuesday. None of the Islanders first-round picks have played for Canada at the World Junior Hockey Championships, though Dal Colle was one of the final cuts last season. Barzal (7G, 33A) and Beauvillier (16G, 19A) have both played for Canada’s U18 team in the past. Dal Colle won a Memorial Cup with the Oshawa Generals last season.

Barzal Continues to shine for Seattle

Mathew Barzal continues to find success in the Western Hockey League after tallying six points (1g, 5a) in three games for the Seattle Thunderbirds.  Barzal led Seattle with a four-point outing on Friday’s 5-3 win over Vancouver. He added a goal and assist on Saturday’s loss to Moose Jaw. Barzal’s 33 assists are tied for the most in the WHL. Barzal leads the Thunderbirds in assists and points (40). 

The 18 year old Coquitlam, British Columbia native was drafted by the Islanders in first round (16th overall) of the 2015 draft. 

Wotherspoon finding success

Defenseman Parker Wotherspoon tallied five points over the weekend for the Tri-City Americans of the WHL. The Surrey, British Columbia native, scored two goals and dished out three assists as the Americans split a pair of games in a home-and-home series against Spokane. Wotherspoon had his first career four-point game (1G, 3A) in Tri City’s 6-5 win Friday and notched a goal in the American’s 6-4 loss on Saturday. The Islanders’ 2015 4th round pick has 21 points on the year (5G, 16A).

Ho-Sang extends point streak 

Islanders 2014 first-round pick (28th overall) Joshua Ho-Sang extended his point streak this weekend to 16 games, tied for most in the Ontario Hockey League. Ho-Sang had a goal and two assists in three games last week and has 34 points (8G, 26A) on the season.  

Sound Tigers lose two-of-three

Bridgeport: 14-7-1, 29 pts., 2nd in Atlantic Division, 3rd in Eastern Conference

The Bridgeport Sound Tigers dropped two of three games this week, keeping them in second place in the Atlantic Division behind the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins. The Sound Tigers started the week with a 3-1 loss to Albany on Wednesday.
