Camp roster released

Bridgeport’s camp roster (though camp is in Syosset) is here. Finishing a story; will come back and do some annotating in a bit. Some interesting names in the meantime, maybe most notably vet Jeff Deslauriers in goal.


In poking around this list, was revealed that Justin Courtnall actually has an AHL contract.

Couple of notes via EliteProspects: Mike Cornell in camp with St. John’s, which worked out well for Jordan Hill last year; though the story isn’t loading at the moment, Ty Wishart with Binghamton on a tryout.

Also, from Scott Linesburgh: Stockton’s for sale. Could be a domino out west. We’ll see.

And the Islanders announced what’d been widely reported Sunday: Michael Dal Colle agreed to his entry-level deal.

Back to the campers, with links of some sorts on the tryouts:


Jessey Astles: “Rugged forward” out of junior had an ATO but no playing time with Abbotsford in the spring. Went to camp with Minnesota.

Sebastian Collberg: Islanders prospect acquired from Montreal in the Thomas Vanek deadline deal.

Justin Courtnall: Third-year pro signed a surreptitious AHL contract and went to camp with the Islanders. Played one year mostly in the ECHL, then had a full AHL season with Hamilton last year. Geoff’s son; Russ’ nephew.

Colton Gillies: Veteran (full AHL vet) forward, a first-round pick for Minnesota in 2007; played last year for Rochester.

Ryan Hayes: Stockton contract, back for his third year. Came to Bridgeport’s camp last year.

Ross Johnston: Scrappy PEI native out of the Q. No, not the one on waivers. Was with the Islanders on a tryout.

Chris Langkow: AHL contract. His second tour with Bridgeport last year earned him an AHL deal and a return this year.

Jack MacLellan: Stockton contract. Former Brown standout. Played 35 games for Milwaukee a couple of years ago.

Tyler Maxwell: Stockton contract. Former WHLer played last year in Italy.

Mike Pereira: AHL contract. West Haven native out of UMass; brother of former Sound Tiger Joe; had an ATO with Worcester in the spring.

Andrew Rowe: South Carolina (ECHL) contract. Played a couple of years with Adirondack out of Michigan State but most of the past couple in the ECHL. Had seven games with Hartford last year.

Tyler Shattock: Stockton contract. A fifth-year pro; Blues draft pick who falls just short of AHL veteran status after four 60-plus-game seasons in the St. Louis organization.

Peter Sivak: AHL contract. Late arrival to these shores after a long career back in Europe.

C.J. Stretch: AHL contract. Fifth-year pro coming off his first full AHL season in Oklahoma City.

Lukas Sutter: Unsigned Islanders seventh-round draft pick in June as a re-entry. Yes, he’s a Sutter.

Alex Vasiliev: Turns out to be the former KHL forward. I was kind of hoping it’d be the former Wolf Pack defenseman bolting from Yaroslavl and moving up front. I’d be inappropriately excited.

Scooter Vaughan: AHL contract. PTO defenseman last year; moved up front in the second half of the season and was effective on the PK with Langkow.


Shawn Boutin: Stockton contract. Also back for his third Thunder season; was also in Bridgeport camp last year.

Jesse Graham: Islanders prospect defenseman signed his entry-level deal in May. Fit in in an ATO last spring.

Ryan Hegarty: Former Maine defenseman. Greenville (ECHL) contract, where he played last year.

Loic Leduc: Islanders prospect defenseman signed his entry-level deal late last season.

Mark Nemec: AHL contract. Former Maine defenseman. Went to camp with the Islanders.

Andrey Pedan: Islanders prospect defenseman had his rookie year dinged by injuries, limited to 28 AHL games and five ECHL games plus two in the playoffs.

Adam Pelech: Islanders prospect defenseman signed his entry-level deal late last season.

Adam Phillips: AHL contract. Played both defense and forward at UMass. It sounded like the team was looking at him as a forward. Versatility is not a bad thing.

Bennett Schneider: Florida native played for Hamilton College and then in the SPHL. Another entrepreneur on the roster.

Keith Seabrook: AHL contract. He’s been out of the game for almost two years and had gotten into jewelry back home.

Brad Stebner: Stockton contract. He played five games for the Thunder last year out of Michigan Tech.


Jeff Drouin-Deslauriers: Veteran goalie was with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton last year and had been in camp with the L.A. Kings until a few days ago.

Andy Iles: Former Cornell goalie. Not positive he’s got a Florida (ECHL) contract, though the Everblades did give him a qualifying offer.

Shane Owen: Stockton contract. Was also in Islanders camp.

Philippe Trudeau: AHL contract. Had an ATO here last spring after making his pro debut on an ATO with Binghamton.
