Islanders stuff

  • John Tavares is one of the skaters at the Power Edge Pro training program and is embracing its challenges. [Globe n’ Mail]
  • Ken Morrow remembers Herb Brooks on his 80th birthday, and how the coach helped train him into the best shape of his life. []
  • The Railers have signed Minnesota-Duluth defenseman Willie Raskob to a contract. He attended Islanders prospect camp this summer and apparently earned some attention. [Railers | Telegram]
  • The World Junior Summer Showcase continues. Islanders prospects Robin Salo and Otto Koivula (OTTO!) scored for Finland in a loss to Team USA. []
  • Linus Soderstrom’s got himself some new pads. It’s good to be a champ.

Thank you @bauergoalie for the new set of gear. #2SPRO
