Now a week into September, hockey feels like it’s much closer to being around the corner. No, we still aren’t sure officially who is coming to training camp or when exactly it will be but Islanders hockey will be played this month and that’s a good thing.

This week we’ll be breaking two things down, progression and regression candidates. First, we will get into who should take a next step forward. There are some obvious answers that you may be expecting but there will be some sleepers as well.

There aren’t too many regression candidates but we will mix in a couple as well as discuss wild card candidates for the season. Lastly, Mitch will get into Down on the Farm and what’s happening prospect-wise. Here’s what you can expect from episode 212:

Topics

Progression candidates

Who is going to take a step forward in their development or who had a bad year last year that should be better in 2021-2022?

Regression candidates

Will we see someone take a step back from their performance in 2021? We will also get into some wild card candidates for the season as well.

Down on the Farm

Updates on prospects from around the world. Mitch will share his findings and conversations with Isles prospects.

Quiz

On the quiz, Mitch will pick a random player in Islanders history and I have to try to guess who that player is based on five clues. It’s usually a blast.

Social

In the social segment, we’ll answer questions and talk about the biggest stuff from Isles Twitter this past week.
