Islanders set final roster
Islanders General Manager Grant Sonier announced today that the Charlottetown Islanders have trimmed their roster down to 23 players
Defenceman Dominik Reid, Lucas Sangster and Pierre-Oliver Joseph have been sent back to their respective clubs along with forwards Brady-Griffin Hefford, Kyler Carter and Johnny Foley.
Sonier stated “we are extremely excited about what we saw from our prospects at this year’s Training Camp. These decisions have been made today based on league rules, as we would have loved to have more time to watch and evaluate these players further.”
“Today is always a difficult day as I am forced to bring bad news to really great kids. They have done everything we have asked of them and we appreciate their hard work in the off season and over the last three weeks. Most if not all of these prospects are expected to wear our jersey at some point this season, with some to be recalled sooner than later.”
The Islanders preseason schedule continues with practices all week before heading to the Magdelane Islands for two games against the Quebec Remparts on August 28 and 30.
