Day one of New York Islanders training camp was spent off the ice, going through physicals and making the media rounds. The team’s first day of on-ice work won’t begin until Monday at Northwell Health Ice Center in East Meadow.

The biggest story of the day was the absence of Mathew Barzal. His teammates remained confident that Barzal would be there soon though.

Aside from that, there is plenty of things going on around the Islanders as camp opened. They have a goaltending situation that has the eyes of the entire fan base on it, the return of several players from serious injuries and roster spots to fill.

The Islanders also have to contend with the loss of two players on the blue line.

On the positive end, the Islanders appeared hungrier than ever after their first trip to the conference finals since 1993. To put that in perspective, there was a group of Islanders fans at Republic Airport in September that hadn’t even been born yet the last time that occurred.
