The New York Islanders announced today that the team will play their Orange vs. Blue scrimmage at Nassau Coliseum on Thursday, July 11 at 7 p.m. Fans will have the opportunity to see the organization’s top prospects compete in the game and then take part in a post-game skills competition that will feature a prospect shootout. Tickets to the event will go on sale on Thursday, June 20 at 9:30 a.m. Tickets are $10, with all proceeds going towards the Islanders Children’s Foundation.

Season ticket holders will have exclusive VIP access throughout the event. Access includes preferential seating along the glass, meet and greet opportunities and the ability to high five the players as they enter and exit the ice.

This year’s Orange and Blue scrimmage will feature top prospects such as forwards Anders Lee (2009, 152nd overall selection), Brock Nelson (2010, 30th overall selection), Ryan Strome (2011, 5th overall selection) and defensemen Griffin Reinhart (2012, 4th overall selection), Scott Mayfield (2011, 34th overall selection) and Andrey Pedan (2011, 63rd overall selection).

In addition, this game marks the first chance for fans to watch 2013 Islanders draft selections Ryan Pulock (first round, 15th overall), Eamon McAdam (third round, 70th overall), Viktor Crus Rydberg (fifth round, 136th overall), Alan Quine (sixth round, 166th overall) and Kyle Burroughs (seventh round, 196th overall).

Each year, the players compete in the Orange and Blue scrimmage, showcasing their skills for fans. Ryan Strome brought the game national attention when his move in the 2011 post-game shootout was selected on ESPN Sportscenter Top 10 Plays of the Night. To go along with the shootout, the players will take part in a skills competition with events such as the hardest shot and breakaway relays.

The Team Store is offering Season Ticket Holders 30% off regular priced merchandise, and the general public will receive 10% off. Certain merchandise from last season will be on clearance, including apparel, collectibles, used jerseys and equipment. Those items will be marked at 50% or more off the regular price.

Doors for this summer’s scrimmage are scheduled to open at 6 p.m. For fans that are not able to attend the game, the Islanders will stream the game live on the team’s web site.

The Islanders Children’s Foundation was founded in 2003 to provide opportunities to children in areas of education, health and youth hockey development. The ICF has raised over $5 million, assisting thousand of children and their families on Long Island, as well as around the world.
