I hope you have all enjoyed your summer. I took a break from blogging for the most part over the summer. I expect to become more active on this front now that it is time for Pre-Season Camps to start up. The Islanders camp takes place at the Credit Union Centre in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. Camp starts on Saturday September 12th and runs until Sunday the 20th.
On Monday the 14th, the Islanders will travel to Terrace, British Columbia to compete in the 2009 Kraft Hockeyville game which was awarded to Terrace as result of that community winning the CBC Kraft Hockeyville reality series. This game will be shown on the NHL Network in the U.S. and Canada at 10:30 pm EDT (Eastern Daylight Time). This will be for most Islanders fans the first chance to see a glimpse of John Tavares in a game situation.
The Islanders will also play the following games during the preseason; none of which will be broadcast on television (don't even ask about Islanders TV). All times are EDT.
