Islanders website: Report 6/28/12 Blue-White game at Iceworks is a sellout and will be on ITV.

ITV broadcast will be a live stream on NewYorkIslanders.com beginning with warm-ups at 6 p.m. for a 6:30 puck drop.

Blue team members include Kirill Kabanov, Scott Mayfield, Brock Nelson, Griffin Reinhart, Ryan Strome and Johan Sundstrom, while some of the top prospects suiting up in white jerseys this year are Casey Cizikas, Nino Niederreiter, John Persson, Mike Halmo and Ville Pokka.

NYIFC Comments:
It should be noted many of the prospects from Bridgeport (Ness, Donovan, Ullstrom, Persson) are part of this camp also. Isles did a terrible job advertising a prospect camp for 2011-12, even if possible CBA issues forced some changes, many teams announced their camp. 

The Nassau Coliseum is not available this week for those wondering why Thursday's game was not scheduled there.

The mystery for me would be who's playing goal in the Blue-White game (or any on-ice workouts) unless Nilsson, Koskinen flew in from Europe with the later highly unlikely because he only has a qualifying offer, and played for a team in Finland last season after leaving Bridgeport?

Kevin Poulin was at the draft party, he is shown participating in workouts.

Cody Rosen played one game for Clarkson last season.

To my knowledge veteran NHL players are not permitted to participate in prospect camps.

Likely the Isles are bringing in some walk on tryout goaltenders.
