⭐️ Oliver Wahlstrom

Now, it's no surprise why Wahlstrom is on this list. Wahlstrom had a great week last week and more impressively had himself an incredible game against the Sharks. Wahlstrom scored twice in the 5-2 win in just his third career two-goal game performance.

Wahlstrom's first goal came with under a minute left in the second period to give the Islanders the 3-2 lead. This was assisted by Nelson. His second goal came with roughly 14 and a half minutes left in the third period to extend the Islanders' lead to 4-2. This goal was assisted by Dobson.

"I like to shoot from everywhere, I try to catch the goalie off guard. It's something I always worked on when I was younger, but you know it's a good battle. Lee on my first goal was the one who really picked the guy and Brock did all the work on the face-off and I just kind of leaned into my shot."
