Here’s your daily recap, update, and rankings for New York Islanders prospects and players within the system.

This is the third post of what has been a daily update on New York Islanders prospects and players within the system.

Prospect Update from Yesterday

  • Ruslan Iskhakov (TPS)
  • Henrik Tikkanen (KalPa)
  • Josh Ho-Sang (Linkoping)
  • Robin Salo (Orebro)

So, of the four players on the “in action list” for yesterday, only one of them played. And that was Ruslan Iskhakov for TPS. The Isles second-round pick from 2018 recorded a primary assist on TPS’s opening goal of the day. A play that saw him take a heavy hit from behind along the boards.

The helper now has Iskha on a four-game point streak and puts him at 28 points on the season.

The next three players listed were all out of action for various reasons:

Robin Salo and Orebro didn’t play because of a COVID-related postponement. It seems someone for Malmo tested positive and so the game was moved to March 18.

Henrik Tikkanen – the 2020 seventh-round pick and 6’8″ goalie – was the backup for his Liiga side. In five games, he’s running a 2-2-1 record with a 1.91GAA and 0.929SV%.

Josh Ho-Sang was a healthy scratch for Linkoping in what would have been his fifth game for them. The team was quiet about the move of course, but Ho-Sang hasn’t been up to snuff in the D-zone for one of the lowest-ranked teams in the SHL. You don’t have to be a nay-sayer to know that’s not good.

Note yesterday’s post:

Yesterday I had indicated that Anatoly Golyshev’s pointless streak was up to 14 games after Avtomobilist dropped game four of their first-round matchup with Omsk. While the count is accurate (14 games without a point), that wasn’t due to his actions in game four, because he didn’t play. Golyshev picked up an injury in game three.
