In three games, Mason Jobst has been one of the more noticeable New York Islanders. He’s going to make it very difficult to send him down.
One of the best parts of the preseason is finding guys who are under the radar that impress. That’s exactly what’s happened so far with the New York Islanders college signee, Mason Jobst.
In three preseason games, he has two points, both coming in overtime. He had the game-winning goal on the 17th against the Philadelphia Flyers and then last night, he set up the game-winning goal for Anders Lee.
Take a look at the game-winner:
Jobst acted as the fourth line center, playing with Michael Dal Çolle and Kieffer Bellows. He’s played the role pretty well during the preseason so far. It makes you wonder if the Isles never added Derrick Brassard would Jobst be the front runner for a roster spot?
While a roster spot seems out of the question, not because of talent but because of numbers, an important role in Bridgeport seems like destiny.
Expect Jobst, who is coming off three straight years of being a point per game player at Ohio State, to play in the AHL with the Sound Tigers, and likely play well.
