Top Robin Salo News

  • Islanders' Robin Salo: Could have a short stay

    Salo may be sent back to the AHL before the Islanders are able to resume their season, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

    There has been no word yet from the NHL if the Islanders will play Thursday versus the Sharks. There is also no word from the Islanders as to if any of their current defensemen in the Covid-19 protocols will return for that game. As of Monday, Adam Pelech, Andy Greene, and Zdeno Chara are each in the protocol. Coach Barry Trotz has not stated how many of that trio would have to return for the team to return Salo to the AHL. Salo has yet to register a point and is a minus-4 in four games with the Islanders. One thing we can reasonably assume is that Salo will be playing somewhere. The Islanders are unlikely to keep one of the top prospects on the bench. They will want him playing somewhere.

  • Islanders' Robin Salo: Promoted to top level

    Salo was recalled by the Islanders on Thursday.

    Salo skated with Zdeno Chara on the Islanders' second pairing during Thursday's practice. Nonetheless, it remains to be seen if Salo will be in the lineup for Saturday's game versus the Flames. The 23-year-old defender has racked up eight points through 14 AHL appearances this season.

  • Islanders' Robin Salo: Headed for minors

    Salo was shipped down to AHL Bridgeport on Monday.

    Salo has played exclusively overseas in Sweden throughout his career but will make the jump to North America with the Sound Tigers. Selected by the organization in the second round of the 2017 NHL Draft, Salo figures to spend the year developing in the minors but could earn a call-up if he can bring his offensive game to North America.

  • Islanders' Robin Salo: Expected to be sent down

    Salo is expected to be sent down to the AHL before Saturday, Arthur Staple of The Athletic reports.

    Salo has had a strong camp, but there just isn't any room on the Islanders for him at this point. Salo won't require waivers and the AHL preseason starts this weekend. He likely has a future on Long Island, but it's still too early.

  • Islanders' Robin Salo: Added to playoff roster

    Salo was added to the Islanders' roster Saturday, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

    The Finn spent all of the 2020-21 season on loan with Orebro HK of the Swedish Hockey League. Salo racked up six goals and 30 points in 51 regular-season contests, and he added four assists in nine playoff games. Salo will be one of the Islanders' Black Aces, which makes it unlikely he sees any NHL playing time during the postseason. The second-round pick from 2017 could compete for a roster spot in training camp after an impressive showing overseas.

  • Islanders' Robin Salo: Future is bright

    Salo will likely finish in the top 10 in scoring among defensemen in the Swedish Hockey League this season, Arthur Staple of The Athletic reports.

    Salo was the Islanders' second-round pick in the 2017 draft. There was some thought that he could play for the Isles this season if Orebro didn't qualify for the SHL playoffs, but they have, and that likely won't leave enough time for Salo to travel to the United States and prepare to play on an NHL defense. Salo is expected to compete for a starting job in training camp next season.

  • Islanders' Robin Salo: Inks entry-level deal

    Salo signed a two-year, entry-level contract with the Islanders and was subsequently assigned to Orebro of the SHL on Friday.

    The Islanders selected Salo with the 46th overall pick in the 2017 NHL Entry Draft. The 22-year-old blueliner has been highly productive in the SHL this season, racking up five goals and 25 points in 39 games. It wouldn't be surprising to see Salo join AHL Bridgeport following the conclusion of the SHL campaign.
