The appointment of Lane Lambert as the Islanders head coach was more about restoring the team’s identity than forging a new one.

His approach to doing so began to show itself on Thursday, when Lambert officially led practice for the first time during training camp.

“The new voice is simply my voice,” said Lambert of last season’s top assistant Barry Trotz, who was fired in May after the Islanders missed the playoffs. “It’s different in the way I talk and the way I talk. There’s nothing wrong with the old voice than what he did, but it’s definitely different now. I’m a demanding, passionate guy, really. And the players know that, and they They respect me, and I respect them.”

The Islanders aren’t expected to change their style of play much under Lambert, but things won’t be the same.

“I think just a couple games and the first day, they really want us to fight in all three zones in the zone,” defenseman Noah Dobson told the Post. “Especially with the D-men, the big strength is our spacing and getting up the ice and being aggressive.”

That importance is a departure from the way the island played last season, when they prioritized the defensive structure to contribute quickly.

Aggression, it turns out, was the talk of the dressing room.

“He talked about being very aggressive, wanting to be a threat all the time,” center Mathew Barzal said. “Try to make D more active, just make the ice point more.”

As for Lambert’s communication style, players find him direct and accountable. That, they believe, should help them regain the rhythm that slipped away from them in a disastrous 2021-22.

I think until the end [of the season]we are coming back. We are back to being a tough team to play against,” center Jean-Gabriel Pageau told The Post. “And I think that’s what we want to come back to.”


Defender Bode Wilde, who was deported to Sweden last year after refusing to be vaccinated against COVID-19, will not attend training camp, as will the team. The Isles are paving the way for Wilde this season.


The Isles are in danger of losing their 2023 third-round pick after Andrew Ladd failed his physical and will start the season on IR with the Coyotes. The pick, which sent Ladd to Arizona on terms of the trade, changes if he doesn’t play this year.


LW Otto Koivula, D Isaiah George and LW Collin Adams missed Thursday with undisclosed injuries. Lambert said he will be evaluated Friday.
