Tonight the New York Islanders and Philadelphia Flyers have a rookie scrimmage in Allentown, Pennsylvania.

Tomorrow, the vets report to camp for intake and what-not before taking the ice on Friday.

The Isles announced their 2019 training camp schedule. No open (to the public) practices. They’ll have three on-ice sessions each day Friday through Tuesday, though Monday and Tuesday will include pre-game skates for groups likely to play in those nights’ preseason games vs. the Flyers.

After that? Subject to change, with a few days before their third preseason game, in Detroit on Friday, Sept. 20.
