Holmstrom was waived by the Islanders on Friday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports. Holmstrom hasn't drawn into an NHL game since the 2011-12 season, and was never expected to contend for a spot on the Islanders' Opening Night roster, so this development is hardly surprising. As long as he isn't nabbed off waivers by another NHL club, the 29-year-old forward will head to AHL Bridgeport this weekend, where he'll likely spend the entirety of the 2016-17 season.
