We’ve seen a number of New York Islanders players from the system make their NHL debuts this season. It’s time to take a look around at how some our players are doing elsewhere.

We live in the now, but we always have an eye to the future. The New York Islanders look good but you know at some point Lou is going to have to make a trade for a top-end player to compliment his roster.

When that happens he’ll inevitably have to dip into the Islanders decent farm system to give one of his promising kids. He certainly has a few of them. So lets a look at who’s performed well this week.

Last week we focused on a few players. Blainville-Boisbriand’s Samuel Bolduc, a second-round pick from 2019 featured in the weekly round up. This week, the focus is again on the CHL but on a number of forwards from the 2018 draft putting some big numbers for their clubs.

This week, I’ve added a difference column to highlight just how good some of the Isles prospects have been over the week.

Europe/Goalies

Robin Salo continues to put up good numbers out in Finland. If Sebastian Aho is moved in a trade at some point this season, Salo could be a good option to replace him in the AHL.

I forgot to include two of the other goalies in the Islanders system. Both Linus Soderstrom and Jakub Skarek were skipped in the review, but they’re here now.

Neither are having incredible years, but the fact that they’re here playing in North America under the watchful eye of the organization is important.
