Sorokin will protect the home goal Thursday versus the Sharks, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

Sorokin will start the first game back for the Islanders after the team's last two contests were postponed due to a COVID-19 outbreak. He's lost four in a row, though the Islanders mustered just one total goal of support in that span. Sorokin has a 2.42 GAA and a .928 save percentage this year as a fairly reliable option in net with a favorable matchup Thursday.
