Rosner Wrap: Prospects Making Their Way to LI, Hockey This Week



New York Islanders prospect William Dufour, forward for the St. John Sea Dogs

Before we get to the New York Islanders and NHL stories to know for today, Sunday was a difficult day for many New Yorkers.

From all of us here at NYI Hockey Now and the National Hockey Now family, we send our thoughts and prayers to all the families and friends who lost love ones on Sept. 11, 2001, during the ruthless terrorist attacks. We also thank everyone who lent a hand at Ground Zero to help save lives and help rebuild the city.

There are many people, whether they were police officers, firefighters, just nearby civilians who have since passed on from illness, diseases, and injuries from that sad day. More people have died from 9/11 diseases than from the 9/11 attacks.

We must never forget the brave men and women from that day. And we must also never forget what was done to our beloved city.

Sunday was also the start of the NFL season, or as I call it, another stop-gap until the hockey season begins.

How did your football team do this past weekend? Well, regardless of how your Sunday went, we got hockey coming up on Long Island as prospects will be hitting the ice by the end of this week.

On Sunday, New York Islanders prospect and IIHF World Junior gold medalist William Dufour was at the New York Yankees game, a 10-4 routing of the Tampa Bay Rays, per his Instagram story. He also tagged fellow Islanders prospect, defenseman Sam Bolduc in the story, which usually means they were at the game with one another.

Otto Koivula posted his own Instagram story, but unfortunately, he was at the New York Jets game at Metlife, as they were dominated by the Baltimore Ravens 24-9.

We also know that many of the staple New York Islanders are also back on Long Island, as a majority of Matt Martin’s teammates, if not all of them (no head count, just pictures on social media, attended his charity poker tournament last Thursday.

Let’s get to the New York Islanders and NHL stories to know for today:

NYI Hockey Now: As the 2022-23 season fastly approaches, the New York Islanders are a team with way more questions than answers at this moment and time. Last Monday, while on Hockey Night in New York, I discussed some of the significant question marks surrounding the Islanders, but let’s dive through as many as we can here. New York Islanders.

Philly Hockey Now: In February, Philadelphia Flyers general manager Chuck Fletcher said he expected Sean Couturier to be 100 percent healthy when this season’s training camp starts. We should find out Monday if that is true. Philadelphia Flyers.

Detroit Hockey Now: In his days with the New York Rangers, Anders Hedberg was always tough on the Detroit Red Wings. In 20 NHL games against Detroit, Hedberg counted 9-11-20 totals. The Red Wings were among five NHL squads against which finished his career averaging a point per game. Decades have passed since Hedberg’s halcyon years, but the Swedish legend remains unrelenting in his harshness towards the Red Wings. Well, in this case he’s being tough on one Detroit player in particular. Detroit Red Wings

Washington Hockey Now: Former Washington Capitals goaltender Ilya Samsonov is set to turn the page and begin the next phase of his career with the Toronto Maple Leafs, and he’s getting started with informal skates ahead of training camp. Washington Capitals.

Montreal Hockey Now: For years the Montreal Canadiens were plagued for many years by a disorganized farm system, and are now seemingly turning the corner. The Canadiens now have established AHL (Laval Rocket) and ECHL (Trois-Rivières Lions) affiliates close to home, making the transfer of players from league to league almost seamless and efficient for both club and players alike. Montreal Canadiens.

Vegas Hockey Now: There are currently nine restricted free agents in the NHL that need new contracts for the 2022-23 season. While most of the focus is on Dallas Stars sniper Jason Robertson, the Vegas Golden Knights, have one player on this list, defenseman Nicolas Hague. Vegas Golden Knights.
