The Islanders rookies were able to turn a 3-0 deficit and 4-2 deficit after two periods into a 4-4 game early in the third. In a shootout, Oliver Wahlstrom scored the only goal to lift the Islanders over the Flyers, 5-4, in the Rookie Game at PPL Center in Allentown on Wednesday night.
The Flyers rookies will be the first to take the ice ahead of the 2019-20 season with Rookie Camp. The camp will run from Saturday, Sept. 7 through Wednesday, Sept. 11, culminating with the Rookie Game between the Flyers rookies and New York Islanders rookies at PPL Center in Allentown.
When Monday came and went and the Flyers did nothing but address organizational depth, it was telling. For prospects like Morgan Frost and Joel Farabee, it should be motivating. It means there will be an opportunity to make the Flyers roster this season. There will be an open competition.
