Long Beach goalie Mundinger attending Islanders camp
June 29, 2016
Stephen Mundinger (third from the left) takes in a New York Yankees game with other prospects from the New York Islanders this week.
The Long Beach Sharks of the NA3HL are proud to announce that goalie Stephen Mundinger was invited to participate in the New York Islanders Mini Camp, which opened on Tuesday.
Over 50 prospects and invitees hit the ice at Northwell Health Ice Center for a week of on-ice and off-ice work. It’s a week for Islanders coaches to evaluate players and their game, a midsummer check-in to help guide training and preparation for training camp in September.
Getting bigger, faster and stronger is the goal for almost every prospect at mini camp, though for the 2016 draft class and free agents like Mundinger, it’s also about getting to know the coaches, other prospects and the area itself.
To say that Mundinger had a memorable season with the Long Beach Sharks (formerly NY Aviators) would be a huge understatement. Mundinger went from a relatively unknown player to a first team all-star selection and NA3EHL Goaltender of the Year this past season. He also played on the NA3EHL West Division Prospects team that competed at the NA3HL Showcase. Along the way, Mundinger also committed to play NCAA Division I hockey at the University of Maine.
The Islanders prospects will play in the annual Blue and White Scrimmage on Wednesday, June 29th at 7 p.m. at Northwell and again in a second scrimmage on Friday July 1, the last day of camp. The event will feature the organization’s draft picks along with top prospects competing against each other in an inter-squad game.
The Blue and White Scrimmage will have a different look this camp, becoming a three-team tournament. Rosters will become available on Wednesday. Tickets are available to the Blue & White Scrimmage. All proceeds will benefit the Islanders Children’s Foundation.
