Greensburg native and former Latrobe forward Dalton Hunter will attend prospect development camp with the New York Islanders starting Tuesday, June 27.

Last season, Hunter scored 30 goals and recorded 67 points for the Johnstown Tomahawks of the NAHL, finishing second on the team in both categories.

The breakout performance put Hunter on the prospect map after having totaled 10 and 16 points over his first two season with the Tomahawks.
