New York Islanders - Training Camp 2011
New Faces - Tim Wallace

Another new player to attend his first Islanders training camp is forward Tim Wallace.

Wallace, 27, signed with the Islanders on July 21 after spending his entire professional career within the Pittsburgh Penguins organization. Skating with a new team didn’t change any of his preparations coming into training camp. Instead, he said it’s all about getting back into the swing of things.

“I think the first couple days have been high intensity and about trying to get back into shape,” said the Achorage, AK, native. “You just come in and prepare the same way. You want to be in the best shape you can and then try to do whatever you can to make the team.”

Last season, the 6’1”, 207-pound forward scored 20 goals and 17 assists in 62 regular season games with the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins. Prior to his time in the Penguins organization, Wallace spent four seasons with the University of Notre Dame.

Wallace may be a new face to Islanders fans, but he isn’t necessarily a new face in the locker room.

“I played with Mark (Eaton) in Pittsburgh,” he said. “We met and talked in the past because he also went to Notre Dame. I also knew Trevor Frischmon through a friend from back in Alaska. I definitely played against a lot of the other guys, too, and it seems like a great group.”

If his former teammate Eaton gave any advice on what to expect: “I think by now we know what to expect in training camp,” Wallace said. “You have to come in, get in shape and be ready to work.”

During his five seasons in the Pittsburgh organization, Wallace tallied two assists and 12 penalty minutes in 24 career NHL games. He hopes to soon add to those totals by wearing an Islanders uniform.

“Obviously, there are a lot of good, young players here,” he said. “Hopefully, I can make the team out of camp and do whatever I can to help the team win.”
