The Islanders released their roster for this week's mini-camp, which will begin Wednesday.

Islanders Matt Martin and Travis Hamonic will be there, as will top prospects Nino Niederreiter and Calvin de Haan and 2011 draft picks Ryan Strome and Scott Mayfield.

*Had a few people ask about the absence of a few players, including 2010 draftee Tony DeHart and 2008 third-round pick David Toews.The Islanders did not extend DeHart a "bona fide offer" by June 1, 2011 and, pursuant to article 8.6 of the CBA, no longer retain his rights. Toews wasn't invited because the Islanders have no intent to sign him to an NHL deal in the future.

Russian prospects Kirill Petrov and Anton Klementyev will also be absent from this year's camp; Petrov has a sickness in the family, Klementyex won't be coming for immigration/logistical issues.

**Notre Dame's Anders Lee and Robbie Russo will be attending camp, but because of their college hockey program's commitments, won't be there until the 14th
