It’s mid August, dead center in the dog days of summer hockey news, but the Islanders inadvertently provided some roster fodder to chew on yesterday.

Islanders News

  • That fodder is Shane Prince’s foot. Or rather, his ankle, which started as a high ankle sprain last season and finally required surgery after unfruitful rehab. [LHH | NHL]
  • Calvin de Haan talks with team media about his summer. [Isles]
  • Meanwhile, in Nassau...Robert Brodsky teed this up perfectly: “Research group argues Ed Mangano Hub vision is outdated, lacks housing and transit options need to transform area.” [Newsday]
  • The Islanders and Flyers are in middle-bubble territory in the Metro, so if things go south for one but not the other maybe they...trade John Tavares/Claude Giroux to the other? I see. [Red Line]
  • Something called “Dune Deck at Westhampton Beach” opened with people like Eli Manning and Doug Weight there, so...an Islander in Page Six! [Page Six]
  • Enjoy some Logan Cockerill highlights and prospect hype, hype away:

Lots of Islanders scoring in Da Beauty League, but we’ll just leave you with this casual marker from Kieffer Bellows.
