Islanders Rookies Put On Summer Show For Fans

Last night, Islanders rookies squared off in the teams annual Blue VS White scrimmage.  The blue team ended up being victorious by a score of 7-3.

While the white team didn't get much going for themselves last night, one of the bright spots of the game for them was goalie Eamon McAdam who had a solid performance.

The talk of the night though had to be 2014 first round pick Josh Ho Sang who suited up on the blue teams first line.  Ho Sang dazzled fans with his speed and stick handling ability scoring a highlight reel goal during the scrimmage and another one during the skills competition shootout.

Forward Alan Quine also stuck out on the blue team having a solid game, he had some flashy moves in the skills competition as well.  White team defenseman Jake Rutt had a physical edge to his game.  Fifth overall pick Michael Dal Colle had a quiet game and hit the post during his post game shootout attempt.

The post event autograph session while a nice gesture for fans was done horribly this year compared to years past.  It was very unorganized and it was moved along so quick to the point where people wondered why they even bothered having it.
