11. Bode Wilde
Draft: 41 OVR 2018
It’s was a rough year for Bode Wilde who missed time due to an ankle injury just before camp and then having the season shut down due to the pandemic. He started the year in the AHL playing 20 games with Bridgeport before being sent back to Saginaw in the OHL where he played eleven games (and putting up eleven points).
12. Samuel Bolduc
Draft: 57 OVR 2019
The big 6’4″ blueliner was signed to his ELC in April after three solid years at the QMJHL level. Between the Blainville-Boisbriand Armada and the Sherbrooke Phoenix, Bolduc put up an impressive 94 points over 189 games.
The lefty can step in right away to give the Sound Tigers more youth, size, and talent.
13. Jakub Skarek
Draft: 72 OVR 2018
The Islanders like Skarek, they like him enough to make sure he gets playing time during the break by loaning him to Peliitat. Skarek has played four games in Finland with an average 0.833SV% and 4.44GAA. Those are some bad stats sure, but Peliitat was one of the worst teams in the Mestis league before Skarek got there.
14. Michael Dal Colle
Draft: 5 OVR 2014
Michael Dal Colle’s stock continues to fall. From top-five draft pick to 13th forward (maybe). This is a big year for Dal Colle. If he can’t prove he belongs in the NHL even as a fourth-liner, I’m not sure the Islanders keep him around with other players ready to pass him for that spot in the lineup.
15. AJ Greer
Draft: 39 OVR 2015 (COL)
Picked up for Kyle Burroughs at the start of October, Greer has been a solid AHLer with 127 points in 199 games since 2016-17. He may not make the leap to the NHL anytime soon but he’s a good depth option.
At the very least he’ll be a great addition to a forward deprived Bridgeport Sound Tigers group and that
