The Bridgeport Islanders had one of their best seasons since the 2018-19 season, a good start to their rebranded future. The Jr. Islanders went 31-30-7 (.507 points percentage), good enough for sixth place in the AHL's Atlantic Division. They squeaked themselves into the Calder Cup Playoffs taking on the Providence Bruins in the first round. A two-game sweep of the Bruins sent the Jr. Islanders to the second round to play the Charlotte Checkers, however, the sixth-seeded Isles couldn't overcome the first-seeded Checkers losing the series 3-1.
It's an encouraging sign to see the success the Jr. Islanders had this season given the Isles' prospect pipeline is widely regarded as being a poor one. Now looking forward to training camp, there will be a few New York Islanders prospects that will look to impress new head coach Lane Lambert and try to crack the opening night roster.
