All eyes on the kid line, but Bridgeport Sound Tigers training camp thankfully has several Islanders stories to watch.

Bridgeport Sound Tigers training camp continued in Syosset Monday, and it's clear from some of the reactions around here that the camp line of Kirill Kabanov and Nino Niederreiter centered by Brock Nelson has prospect-gazing New York Islanders fans intrigued.

As a group, the trio represents the most interesting batch of Islanders prospects dispatched to Bridgeport at once in quite a while. They are like the forward version of Calvin de Haan, Matt Donovan and Aaron Ness -- except with even greater potential.

Lines from camp, per the Islanders:

FORWARDS

John Persson - David Ullstrom - Colin McDonald
Nino Niederreiter - Brock Nelson - Kirill Kabanov
Mike Halmo - Johan Sundstrom - Sean Backman
Brandon DeFazio - Matt Watkins - Blair Riley

DEFENSE

Calvin de Haan - Ty Wishart
Matt Donovan - Travis Hamonic
Aaron Ness - Jon Landry
Nathan McIver - Marc Cantin

Here are Ness and Nelson mic'd up at camp:


Other items of note:

Finally, the Islanders conducted a Twitter Q&A between Nelson and fans yesterday. So you know he prefers Underwood to Swift (I think those are country singers or something). pronounces the nut "P-can," and admires Anze Kopitar's game. For more, check the Islanders Twitter timeline and look for another one to come soon.

Training camp continues ... for one part of the Islanders family anyway.
