For Vande Sompel, this is more of a home-coming as it is some extra playoff experience as the London Knights are looking to win the OHL once again. The soon to be 20-year-old has had some impressive numbers and should be called upon to be in Bridgeport’s lineup next year.

Not going to lie folks, this was probably one of Sorokin’s best games of the year. SKA (Kovalchuk, Datsyuk) are about as close to NHL experience as you’re going to get and Sorokin’s team, CSKA, will probably face each other in the Gagarin Cup in the KHL finals. I still stand by what I wrote about Sorokin a few months back, but I’m optimistic of him coming over to North America at some point soon.

Mix in the recent plays of Kieffer Bellows and Mathew Barzal at the World Junior Championship and there’s a good feeling with the current development of Islanders prospects at their respective levels.
