What three New York Islanders prospects can go from training camp invitee to making the NHL squad this season?

The New York Islanders 2021-22 training camp is almost here. International players have already begun heading towards North America to join up with the squad on Long Island.

The on-ice portion of training camp will begin on September 23rd and the first pre-season game will be on September 26. The off-ice portion of training camp should begin a few days before the 23rd.

We still don’t know the full list of invitee’s but it’s safe to assume that any player on an NHL contract will be at training camp. There won’t be a rookie camp this year. Lou Lamoriello indicated it wasn’t in the plans at the end of the 2021 season and stuck to it.

But that doesn’t mean rookies won’t be attending. Guys like Aatyu Räty will be in attendance as will goalie Tristan Lennox (a fellow 2021 draftee).

So, knowing what we know now about the opening on the team for the 2021-22 season and the prospects who should be at camp (because they’re under contract), what three players have the best shot at making the team.
