General manager Garth Snow was in Hershey to watch the Sound Tigers on Friday night and confirmed during the first intermission prospect Kirill Petrov was " extended an invitation " to attend the teams prospect camp in July and had nothing to add beyond that.

NYIFC Comments:
The broadcaster said the full audio interview with the general manager should be posted in a few days. Snow discussed the Sound Tigers, Islanders/World Championships and team construction but nothing you have not read in the past, complete with sprinkling in veterans.

In terms of Kirill Petrov, he has a standing contract with another team for next season with Ak Bars, until the Isles pay him to make up for that contract and Ak Bars agrees to him no longer playing for their club (perhaps also wanting compensation) there is nothing to be said regarding next season whether it be New York or Bridgeport. Being extended an invitation for a prospect camp in July is a long way from being free to sign here and coming to terms.
