Islanders: Ilya Sorokin Wants to Play in the NHL Next Year

It's been a bit of a slow news week thus far for New York Islanders fans. But Tuesday, KHL reporter Igor Eronko tweeted that CSKA goalie, and Islanders prospect, Ilya Sorokin has intentions of playing in the NHL next season.

This news should delight New York Islanders fans thoroughly. Sorokin has been touted as one of the best goalies playing outside of the NHL for the last five years, and his numbers back up that assessment.
