Isles reuniting with Yashin? 'Probably not'

By Katie Strang

Although former Islander Alexei Yashin has been skating with the Islanders at informal practices the past few weeks, it does not appear he is headed for a reunion with the team that bought him out in 2007.

Yashin told reporters after this morning's skate that he was "probably not" going to attend training camp with the Islanders and was still unsure of his plans for this season.

The 37-year-old Russian center has spent the past four seasons in Russia's Kontinental Hockey League.
