Informal Skate Updates
A group of Islanders held an informal workout at Islanders IceWorks.

A group of Isles held an informal skate Friday, as members of the team continue to filter back to Long Island. The group, which included Frans Nielsen, Matt Martin and Brock Nelson among others, skated at Islanders Iceworks in Syosset, running a series of conditioning and puck-handling drills.

Coaches are not permitted to work with the players until training camp officially opens on Sept. 18 (rookies report on Sept. 11), so veterans Eric Boulton, Matt Carkner and Martin are holding court for now.

“Right now we’re just trying to get the timing back,” Boulton said. “We are doing a lot of the drills the coaches ran last year. [We’re working on] condition, timing, foot speed and getting back into game shape.”

Jaroslav Halak, the Islanders new goaltender, checked in at Iceworks Friday and is expected to begin skating Saturday.

The informal skates also serve to get the newest Islanders acclimated with the practice facility and Long Island. T.J. Brennan and Lukas Sutter were both on hand Friday.

“I’ve been here for a few days living in the hotel… so it’s nice to get acquainted with some of the guys,” Brennan said. “I’m getting to know the area and finding my way around. It’s definitely in my plans to get out and try to golf at a couple of the nice courses around here.”
