Welcome to your daily recap for New York Islanders prospects! 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.

Prospects update from yesterday

  • Robin Salo (Orebro)
    • Stats: 1A (PP), +2, 18:57TOI

Salo’s side absolutely demolished Leksand in game number one. Orebro took game one by a score of 6-1 to go up 1-0 in their first-round series. A win shouldn’t be all that surprising, Orebro has had the best of Leksand all year, but to win 6-1 in game one is a heck of a statement.

We’ll see what happens later today as the team’s faceoff for game 2.

Salo’s sole point in the game came on the power-play late in the game. The Isles prospect has been a strong power-play quarterback for Orebro’s tenth-ranked power play (20.92%) all year long.

New York Islanders prospects in action today

  • Robin Salo (Orebro)

I don’t know what else to say about Salo that hasn’t already been said. At this point, we’re all waiting for him to cross the Atlantic and joining the Islanders/Sound Tigers. So instead I’ll move to some rumors/news on the prospect front.

Signing Watch

We’re all waiting for the news that UND product and Isles 2016 sixth-round Collins Adams has signed his ELC with the team. We know that Adams is expected to sign with the Islanders rather than become a free agent, but we have yet to hear anything on the contract.

After the Braydon Coburn trade, the Isles now sit with 50 contracts on the books. So they can’t add Adams this year without moving someone out. Unless they sign him for next season.

According to the Grand Forks Herald, Adams did exactly that. It seems the Isles and Adams agreed to a two-year ELC that will begin next season. We’ll see if that’s how this actually shakes out but based on the current state of affairs with the Isles there’s no reason to doubt this reporting.

I want to thank Austin Lambert for showing me this report over Twitter yesterday.
