This find is a few days old, but I still wanted to share it with UMass hockey fans. Michael Marcou spent time down in his home town area with the NY Islanders for their prospect camp. Marcou along with Doug Kublin are two of UMass' top returning defensemen for the upcoming season, so this experience will no doubt be helpful for him. A native of Kings Park, Marcou is mentioned in the NY Islanders' Lighthouse Blog focusing on area hockey players who are in the camp this summer. "I was honored," said Marcou. "You grow up watching this team play and then you go out there, trying to be a part of it. It's something really special."
