No practice for the Islanders today. They'll get a day of rest after back-to-back games to prepare for tomorrow's tilt against Columbus. Here's an update, however, on how some of the Islanders prospects are faring at the World Juniors tourney that began this past weekend.
Defenseman Travis Hamonic scored a goal in Canada's 16-0 rout of Latvia Saturday.
Defenseman Matt Donovan has two goals in two games for team USA, who beat Slovakia 7-3 on Saturday and Switzerland 3-0 on SUnday.
Kirill Petrov had three points, one goal and two assists in Russia's 6-2 win against Austria Saturday.
Swedish goaltender Anders Nilsson made 21 saves in Sweden's 7-2 victory over Austria Sunday.
