Bob Nystrom

Bob Nystrom played 900 career games all with the New York Islanders. You can also see his number hanging up when you visit the Barclays Center. Nystrom’s lone All-Star appearance came in the 1976-1977 season.

In that year he scored 29 goals and had 27 assists for 56 points. He wasn’t a prolific scorer like Bossy but he was still a vital part to the Islanders championship runs.

Here’s his most important goal as an Islander and arguably the most important goal in the history of the Islanders

On May 24th 1980 this Bob Nystrom goal gave the Islanders their first Stanley Cup in their history. His goal total might not be something that jumps of the chart at you but he certainly had the clutch gene as he ended four playoff games with overtime winners in his career.

Nystrom embraced the community of Long Island which is why the fans loved him so much. He even was nicknamed “Mr. Islander”.
