The mystery of what the New York Islanders plan to do with Andrew Ladd and Tom Kuhnhackl appeared to be solved on Saturday.

The two NHLers will report to the Bridgeport Sound Tigers when they open training camp. The Islanders AHL affiliate released its training camp roster on Saturday morning.

Sending Ladd’s contract to the AHL will save the Islanders around $1 million in salary cap money. Andrew Ladd is in the fifth year of a seven-year, $38.5 million deal he signed in 2016. The contract carries a 5.5 million AAV but that will come down with him in the minors.

Andrew Ladd played 34 games last season in the AHL with the Sound Tigers and two the year prior.

The veteran forward has struggled to find a place in the Islanders lineup. He has appeared in only 30 games over the last two seasons, with just four goals and 12 points.

Kuhnhackl has played 64 games since joining the Islanders in 2018. He appeared in four games last season with the Sound Tigers.
