Newsday: Greg Logan has an interview with Islander prospect Jack Hillen about the strengths of his game and how he thinks he can help the club in his first professional camp. General manager Garth Snow comments he feels like he got a late first round pick when he signed Hillen out of college while head coach Scott Gordon has been impressed with his skating and hockey sense.
NYI Fan Central Comments:
I know I was impressed with the two games last season, he has a lot of ability and hopefully he makes it as tough as possible on the staff to send him down because for a limited look he did not seem out of place at all.
The rookie game in Shelton Ct Thursday is at 1pm against the Bruins prospects.
