New York Islanders: Top 10 Prospects For 2019-2020
Number 4: Kieffer Bellows (Left Wing | Age: 21)
After a strong season in the WHL, Kieffer Bellows took his talents to the AHL. It was a tough first year as a pro for Bellows who took a while to get going with the Bridgeport Sound Tigers. He had 19 points (12 goals, 7 assists)
With three points in five playoff games, there’s hope that his strong playoff performance will carry over to 2019-2020. Bellows will most definitely start the year in the AHL and if there’s an injury on the left side he should be on a short waiting list for a call-up.
Number 3: Oliver Wahlstrom (Right Wing | Age: 19)
Nobody expected to Oliver Wahlstrom to be there when the New York Islanders were picking 11th overall last year. Wahlstrom is a goal-scoring machine and he proved that in the USDP and USHL. In the NCAA, he struggled.
With only 19 points in 36 games, his NCAA season at Boston College wasn’t a lot to write home about. However in a small sample size in the AHL, he was very good. In 10 games he had seven points. Wahlstrom will likely play the entire season at the AHL level unless there is an injury on the right side in the top-six.
