Isles Prospect Camp Scrimmage/Skills: Orange wins Scrimmage Half, 3-1

There’s still time left to catch up for Team Blue in the skils competition, but Team Orange won the scrimmage portion, 3-1 in front of 4,940 hockey fans at the Nassau Coliseum.

Nino Niederreiter scored on a penalty shot in the third to seal the deal for Orange, on what can truly be described as a nasty move. He faked at least once with his leg and multiple times with his hands to school Brian Robins and make it 3-0.

Isles first round draft pick (30th Overall) Brock Nelson got Team Blue on the board midway through the third on a great pass from Tony DeHart. Blue pulled their goaltender with less than a minute to goal, but failed to score on Cody Rosen.

Joey Diamond, a native of Long Beach, NY, scored Team Orange’s other goal.

We’ll be back later tonight with a report from the skills competition and some interviews with the prospects!


Isles Prospect Camp Scrimmage: 1st Period Recap, 1-0 Orange

After the 1st period, Team Orange is up 1-0. Were playing 2, 25-minute periods with continuous play up until the final 5 minutes. Any penalty is a penalty shot.

An interesting moment occurred early in the 1st when Top 5 pick Nino Niederreiter (“El Nino” or “El Fantastico”) was hit hard into the bench opening. Only a little hitting here early.

The first and only goal of the frame was scored midway when Isles 2009 4th Round Draft Pick Casey Cizikas created a two-on-none with defensemen, camp invite and Jericho, NY native Danny Markowitz. Cizikas got Blue goalie Anders Nilsson down and fed it across for Markowitz to left over Nilsson’s prone pad.

Making good impressions in the first were David Toews and Kirill Kabanov for Blue, the assist man Cizikas and Travis Hamonic, along with Markowitz and Niederreiter for Orange. Orange has been doing more dump and chase, and sustaining pressure, while Blue has done a good job of creating offensive chances on the breakout.

Attendance is around 5,000 for tonight’s game, we’ll get an exact figure later.

We’ll have more analysis and some interviews from the locker room later!
