Top Oliver Wahlstrom News

  • Islanders' Oliver Wahlstrom: Scoreless in last 12 games

    Wahlstrom ended the season without scoring a point in his last 12 games.

    Wahlstrom also only had one goal in his last 17 games. It'll be interesting to see how the team's new coach impacts the production of players like Wahlstrom next season.

  • Islanders' Oliver Wahlstrom: Scoreless in nine straight

    Wahlstrom has gone nine straight games without registering a point for the Islanders.

    Wahlstrom has only one goal in his last 14 games. The season has been a disappointment for the young sniper, as he has only 13 goals and 24 points in 70 games. Wahlstrom has also been a frequent target for the wrath of coach Barry Trotz and has been a healthy scratch several times this season. Wahlstrom likely isn't in danger of being scratched Tuesday as the Isles are down a couple of wingers due to COVID-19 protocol, but the team will want to see more consistent play from Wahlstrom to guarantee a full-time spot for him next season.

  • Islanders' Oliver Wahlstrom: Benched for Thursday's contest

    Wahlstrom will be a healthy scratch when the Islanders take on the Penguins on Thursday, Neil Best of Newsday reports.

    Wahlstrom has once again upset coach Barry Trotz. The coach stated that his issues with Wahlstrom are more about his mental rather than his physical game. It's also likely that Wahlstrom would've been benched before the game Tuesday versus the Penguins if not for the illness that befell Kiefer Bellows. This won't be the first time Trotz has benched Wahlstrom this season, but perhaps it will be the last.

  • Islanders' Oliver Wahlstrom: One goal in last 12 games

    Wahlstrom has only lit the lamp once in his last 12 games.

    Of course, this is a concern for the Islanders, as Wahlstrom is considered the team's best young goal scorer. It's also concerning that this drought has hit Wahlstrom since he's been placed on a line with Mathew Barzal, who himself has wrinkled the twine in 15 games entering their contest versus the Blue Jackets on Thursday. Coach Barry Trotz has placed both of these players on the third line and seems hesitant to break up his top two units, so this duo may have to figure out how to work with each other in order to be successful.

  • Islanders' Oliver Wahlstrom: Lights the lamp

    Wahlstrom wrinkled the twine as the Islanders defeated the Red Wings 6-1 on Thursday.

    The goal was the 12th of the season for Wahlstrom to go along with 10 assists in 56 games. The Islanders will expect more from Wahlstrom next season as coach Barry Trotz has constantly been tutoring him before, during, and after practice. Wahlstrom sometimes feels the wrath of Trotz when his defensive play is lacking, but the future is still bright for the young sniper, and the Isles will hope they have a future 25+ goal scorer on their hands.

  • Islanders' Oliver Wahlstrom: Expected to play Sunday

    Wahlstrom is expected to play Sunday against the Ducks, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

    Wahlstrom was a healthy scratch Friday against the Jets but is likely to play instead of Kieffer Bellows against the Ducks. Wahlstrom may be the best shooter the Islanders have, but he's also drawn the ire of coach Barry Trotz several times this season for poor defensive play, and Trotz has benched him to send a message. He's expected to play on a line with Mathew Barzal and Zach Parise.

  • Islanders' Oliver Wahlstrom: Healthy scratch

    Wahlstrom was a healthy scratch for the game Friday versus the Jets, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

    This was the first time in nine games that Wahlstrom has been sat by coach Barry Trotz but not the first time it has happened this season. Trotz believes in tough love and seems to target Wahlstrom for his mistakes by making him ride the pine. It's a curious move by Trotz as the Isles generally struggle to score goals, so sitting one of their better shooters would seem not to be ideal. There is also the likelihood that the Isles aren't going to make the playoffs this season, so they should be playing their younger players as much as possible so that they make those mistakes now rather than when the games have more meaning.

  • Islanders' Oliver Wahlstrom: Provides assist in win

    Wahlstrom notched an assist, three hits and two PIM in Sunday's 4-0 win over the Ducks.

    Wahlstrom set up Kieffer Bellows' breakaway tally in the third period. The assist snapped a four-game point drought for Wahlstrom, who was last on the scoresheet Feb. 12 with a helper in a loss to the Flames. The 21-year-old winger has cooled off after a good December, and he's at 20 points, 108 shots on net, 61 hits, 39 PIM and a minus-1 rating in 44 contests overall.

  • Islanders' Oliver Wahlstrom: Expected back versus Sharks

    Wahlstrom (upper body) is on track to return to action Thursday against San Jose, Kevin Kurz of The Athletic reports.

    Wahlstrom will likely slot into a middle-six role and a spot on one of the Isles' power-play units Thursday. The 21-year-old winger has picked up 10 goals, 19 points and 37 PIM through 41 contests this campaign.

  • Islanders' Oliver Wahlstrom: Still sidelined

    Wahlstrom (upper body) won't play Tuesday versus Seattle due to "precautionary reasons," Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

    Wahlstrom could probably play Tuesday if needed, but the Islanders don't want to force him into action before he's 100 percent healthy. Another update on Wahlstrom should be released prior to Thursday's matchup with the Sharks.

  • Islanders' Oliver Wahlstrom: Could play Tuesday

    Wahlstrom (upper body) may be available against the Kraken on Tuesday, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

    Wahlstrom appears to be trending in the right direction, though coach Barry Trotz wouldn't confirm the winger's return to action. Before suffering his upper-body injury, the Massachusetts native managed just one point in his previous six contests.

  • Islanders' Oliver Wahlstrom: Not playing Sunday

    Wahlstrom (upper body) will not participate in Sunday's game against Montreal, per Brian Compton of NHL.com.

    Wahlstrom has averaged 13:29 of ice time -- 2:06 during the man advantage -- and recorded three points over the last 10 games. The 21-year-old is considered day-to-day ahead of Tuesday's game versus Seattle.

  • Islanders' Oliver Wahlstrom: Day-to-day

    Wahlstrom is considered day-to-day with an upper-body injury.

    Wahlstrom should be considered iffy at best for Sunday's matchup with Montreal. If Wahlstrom's unable to go, look for Cal Clutterbuck or Ross Johnston to draw into the lineup against the Canadiens.

  • Islanders' Oliver Wahlstrom: Credited with helper

    Wahlstrom recorded an assist and two shots on goal in Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Flames.

    Wahlstrom earned the secondary assist on a Jean-Gabriel Pageau goal in the second period. In his last six games, Wahlstrom has two goals, one assist and 15 shots on net. The 21-year-old doesn't hesitate to shoot -- he's fired 105 pucks on target this season, yielding 10 goals and nine assists in 39 appearances. His presence on the top power-play unit will keep him an intriguing option in deeper fantasy formats.

  • Islanders' Oliver Wahlstrom: Leads team in power play goals

    Wahlstrom leads the Islanders in power-play goals with five and is tied with Mathew Barzal for the lead in power-play points with eight.

    Wahlstrom possesses a hard shot, and the Islanders look to set up that shot during their power play. Wahlstrom has 10 goals and eight assists on the season, so almost half of his points come on the power play.

  • Islanders' Oliver Wahlstrom: Pokes in power-play goal

    Wahlstrom scored a power-play goal on three shots and added two PIM in Sunday's 4-3 loss to the Wild.

    Wahlstrom tallied with 4:00 left in regulation, poke-checking the puck past Kaapo Kahkonen, but the Islanders couldn't rally for a tying goal. The tally snapped a 12-game goal drought for Wahlstrom, though he salvaged some value with seven assists in that span. The talented 21-year-old is up to 17 points, 93 shots on net, 35 PIM and 49 hits through 34 contests. His bottom-six role at even strength isn't great for fantasy, but he remains a presence on the top power-play unit, where he's collected eight of his points this season.

  • Islanders' Oliver Wahlstrom: Returns to the lineup

    Wahlstrom will play when the Islanders take on the Flyers on Tuesday, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

    Wahlstrom was a healthy scratch as the Islanders lost to the Maple Leafs on Saturday. Coach Barry Trotz has been critical about the lack of consistency in the play of Wahlstrom and stated that as the main reason he sat Saturday. Trotz is slow to trust younger players as he has been criticized both for how he handles Wahlstrom and for how he handled young defenseman Noah Dobson last season. The Islanders need Wahlstrom to play as he is one of the few goal scorers they possess.

  • Islanders' Oliver Wahlstrom: Slides helper in win

    Wahlstrom logged an assist, five shots on goal, four PIM and three hits in Monday's 4-1 win over the Flyers.

    Wahlstrom set up Anthony Beauvillier's third-period insurance tally. The 21-year-old Wahlstrom looked good in December with three goals and seven helpers, but this was his first point in three January outings. The American winger is up to 16 points, 81 shots on net, 45 hits and 33 PIM through 29 contests overall as he continues a strong season in a middle-six role.

  • Islanders' Oliver Wahlstrom: Doesn't play Saturday

    Wahlstrom didn't play Saturday in the Islanders' 3-2 overtime victory over the Oilers, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

    No word was given as to why Wahlstrom didn't play, but coach Barry Trotz stated Friday that one of Anthony Beauvillier and Wahlstrom was closer to playing than the other. The truth might be that Wahlstrom wasn't quite up to playing physically after his bout with COVID-19, and with the Islanders now not scheduled to play again until Jan. 13, the team may have thought it prudent to hold him out of the game. Trotz also missed the game Saturday due to personal reasons.

  • Islanders' Oliver Wahlstrom: Back with team

    Wahlstrom cleared COVID-19 protocols and returned to practice Friday, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

    Wahlstrom, who had multiple points in five of his last eight games before the break, should slot into the lineup for Saturday afternoon's game against Edmonton.
