Isles Invite Colton Gillies To Camp

According to Newsday, the Islanders extended a training camp invite to LW Colton Gillies.  Gillies was a first round pick by the Minnesota Wild in 2007.  Gillies also happens to be the nephew of Islanders and NHL Hall of Famer Clark Gillies.

In 154 career NHL games Gillies has 18 points.  Meanwhile, in 65 games last season for the Rochester Americans of the AHL Gillies had 23 points and 49 penalty minutes.

Should he remain with the team through camp I expect Gillies to be in Bridgeport.  However, with his experience he joins Skille and Zolnierczyk as guys who could see cups of coffee with the team should injuries occur.
