Here’s your daily recap of yesterday’s games, updates, and rankings for New York Islanders prospects and players within the system.

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

You’ll find an update on stats from prospects in action yesterday, a round up of who’s playing today, and I’ll tell you how some of those prospects in action yesterday are doing in my prospects rankings.

Prospect Update from Yesterday

  • Josh Ho-Sang (Linkoping)
    • Stats: N/A
  • Robin Salo (Orebro)
    • 1SOG, 21:31TOI

Again, Josh Ho-Sang wasn’t on the ice for Linkoping. They didn’t necessarily need him it seems as they ran away with the score with a 5-3 win against the top team in the league. I’ve reached out to Linkoping GM Niklas Persson for some clarification on the decision to bring him in and then keep him out. I’m waiting for an answer at the time of writing.

With a few players coming back from injury and with Ho-Sang seemingly not playing well defensively, that might just be it. We’ll see what the GM has to say.

Robin Salo has been a key cog for Orebro all season long. Not only does he put up points, but the recent Islanders signee plays big minutes. Yesterday, the 22-year-old played 21:31 of total ice time.

He led his team in ice time yesterday as they picked up a solid 3-0 win with former NHL’er Jonas Enroth stopping all 34 shots he faced.
