An overtime game in the WHL while an eighth seed giving a one seed everything they could handle and more. Kyle Burroughs (2013 seventh rd.) and his Medicine Hat Tigers were taking on the Red...

Islanders Prospects Enjoy Last Day

It was not a good evening for the New York Islanders prospects as eight took to the ice in seven games but only one win in seven games with a combined 1-2-3 in terms of production.

Dal Colle Continues To Shine

Friday night was a “good news”, “not so good news” kind of evening for the New York Islander prospects.
