Buitenhuis Attends Islanders Training Camp

Former Hamitlon College goaltender Evan Buitenhuis (’18) recently completed a six day rookie training camp with the New York Islanders in Long Island. However, his work isn’t finished yet. Buitenhuis begins main training camp today with the likes of well-known NHL’ers such as Josh Bailey, Matthew Barzal, Matt Martin, Johnny Boychuk, Denis Seidenberg, Robin Lehner and more.

Buitenhuis is part of Group C who took the ice for practice just after 1:30pm this afternoon.

Buitenhuis played four years at Hamilton College, three of those as the starting goaltender. He finished his time as a Continental as the all-time leader in save percentage (.944) and goals against average (1.67). After the 2017-18 season ended, Buitenhuis signed an amateur tryout contract with the Toronto Marlies, but did not appear in any games.
