Top Oliver Wahlstrom News

  • Islanders' Oliver Wahlstrom: Available to play

    Wahlstrom (illness) took part in the morning skate after missing Monday's practice, Stefen Rosner of The Hockey News reports.

    It appears as though Wahlstrom will be available to play Tuesday against Edmonton, but Rosner doesn't expect the 23-year-old forward to be in the lineup. Wahlstrom has supplied seven points, 23 shots on goal, 13 blocked shots and 15 hits in 17 appearances this season. He has been a healthy scratch for the past seven games.

  • Islanders' Oliver Wahlstrom: Absent with illness

    Wahlstrom missed practice Monday due to illness, Stefen Rosner of The Hockey News reports.

    Wahlstrom has been a healthy scratch for the club's last seven games so his potential absence against the Oilers on Tuesday shouldn't have much impact on the lineup. Wahlstrom has recorded two goals on 23 shots, three assists and 15 hits while averaging 11:39 of ice time per game over 17 outings.

  • Islanders' Oliver Wahlstrom: Good for two points in win

    Wahlstrom scored a goal with an assist in Friday's 5-3 road win against the Senators.

    Wahlstrom was good for a plus-2 rating, one shot on goal and three blocked shots in just 10:04 of ice time across 17 shifts. He has points in consecutive games for the first time this season, posting a goal and three points. It was his first multi-point showing since notching two helpers on Dec. 16, 2022 on the road against the Coyotes.

  • Islanders' Oliver Wahlstrom: Collects power-play assist

    Wahlstrom posted a power-play assist and two shots on goal in Wednesday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Canucks.

    Wahlstrom set up a Pierre Engvall tally at 7:30 of the first period. While Wahlstrom has yet to solidify his place in the lineup, he's picked up both of his points this season over his last four outings. He's added 17 shots on net, 12 hits and a minus-1 rating through nine appearances.

  • Islanders' Oliver Wahlstrom: Notches first goal of season

    Wahlstrom scored a power-play goal in Tuesday's 4-2 loss to the Wild.

    Sandwiched between two defenders in the Minnesota zone, Wahlstrom still managed to snap off a shot from the faceoff circle that beat Marc-Andre Fleury just inside the far post. The 23-year-old Wahlstrom has played only six of the Islanders' 11 games so far as he gets eased back into action following a knee injury that ended his 2022-23 campaign in late December, and Tuesday's tally was his first point of the current season.

  • Islanders' Oliver Wahlstrom: Signs one-year contract

    Wahlstrom (knee) inked a one-year contract with the Islanders on Monday.

    Wahlstrom signed his qualifying offer of $874,125, according to Stefen Rosner of The Hockey News. The 23-year-old Wahlstrom collected seven goals, 16 points, 70 shots on net and 50 hits in 35 appearances during the 2022-23 season. He wasn't able to return to the lineup after sustaining a knee injury Dec. 27 versus Pittsburgh, but the winger expects to be ready for training camp in the fall.

  • Islanders' Oliver Wahlstrom: Expects to be ready for 2023-24

    Wahlstrom (lower body) is expected to be ready for the start of the 2023-24 season.

    Wahlstrom sustained a lower-body injury in late December that ultimately ended his campaign. He had 16 points in 35 games, and he'll look to more solidly cement himself in the Islanders' lineup next season.

  • Islanders' Oliver Wahlstrom: Officially out for the year

    Wahlstrom (lower body) won't return to the Islanders this season, per Andrew Gross of Newsday.

    Wahlstrom hasn't played since Dec. 27 after suffering an injury against the Penguins. The 22-year-old winger will finish the season with seven goals and 16 points in 35 games. Wahlstrom, a first-round pick in 2018, will look to return to full health before the 2023-24 season.

  • Islanders' Oliver Wahlstrom: Not likely to return this season

    It's looking more and more like Wahlstrom (lower body) won't return this season, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

    The Islanders haven't announced the exact nature of the injury, but it's likely to be related to his knee or ankle. Wahlstrom is expected to make a full recovery, but that recovery doesn't seem like it will get him back into game action this season. The offensively challenged Islanders have missed Wahlstrom's shoot-first mindset.

  • Islanders' Oliver Wahlstrom: Status for rest of season uncertain

    Wahlstrom (leg) is in a cast and on crutches, leaving his status for the remainder of the season in doubt, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

    Wahlstrom has been out for nearly six weeks already, and the fact that he's still in need of mobility aids suggests his return is not on the horizon. He'll likely be out for the rest of February at a minimum, and it wouldn't be surprising to see the Islanders make a splash for a middle-six forward at the trade deadline if Wahlstrom doesn't make much progress before then.

  • Islanders' Oliver Wahlstrom: Still not ready to play

    Wahlstrom (lower body) is still not close to being ready to return to the lineup, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

    Wednesday will mark the 14th straight game that Wahlstrom has missed due to the injury. The Islanders have been struggling to score goals, as they only have 17 tallies in their last 10 games. Even if he were healthy and playing, Wahlstrom wouldn't be an immediate cure for what ails the team, but he could certainly help get them on the right path. The Isles haven't announced the exact nature of Wahlstrom's injury or a timetable for his return, but it seems unlikely he'll be ready to return before the All-Star break.

  • Islanders' Oliver Wahlstrom: Still not skating

    Wahlstrom (lower body) hasn't resumed skating, Stefen Rosner of NYI Hockey Now reports.

    Wahlstrom, who has been out since Dec. 27, remains on injured reserve. A timetable for his return has not been provided, which isn't surprising considering he hasn't been back on the ice yet. Wahlstrom has 16 points in 35 games this season.

    Wahlstrom (lower body) is out indefinitely and has been placed on injured reserve retroactive to Dec. 27, according to Andrew Gross of Newsday.

    Wahlstrom suffered the injury Wednesday in a victory over Pittsburgh. The former first round pick (11th overall) in 2018, has seven goals and 16 points in 35 games this season.

  • Islanders' Oliver Wahlstrom: Not playing Thursday

    Wahlstrom (head) will not play against Columbus on Thursday, according to Andrew Gross of Newsday.

  • Islanders' Oliver Wahlstrom: Dealing with suspected head injury

    Wahlstrom suffered a suspected head injury during Wednesday's win over Pittsburgh, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

    If Wahlstrom did in fact suffer a head injury, it's hard to imagine him being available for Thursday's game versus Columbus. The 22-year-old winger has picked up seven goals and 16 points through 35 contests this season.

  • Islanders' Oliver Wahlstrom: Leaves game early

    Wahlstrom (undisclosed) was forced to leave the game early Tuesday after taking a high hit from Pierre-Olivier Joseph of the Penguins, Ethan Sears of the New York Post reports.

    Wahlstrom seemed unstable on his skates as he went to the dressing room, which would make you wonder if we're dealing with a possible concussion here. The injury occurred during the first shift of the game for Wahlstrom, as he only played 0:24.

  • Islanders' Oliver Wahlstrom: Goalless streak at six games

    Wahlstrom hasn't scored a goal in his last six games and has only lit the lamp once in his last 12.

    Wahlstrom has what might be the best shot on the team, and the coaching staff has admitted they need to find a way to get him the puck in open ice so he can unleash it, but to this point in the season, they have not been successful in that endeavor. Wahlstrom has seven goals in 33 games this season after finishing last year with 13 goals in 73.

  • Islanders' Oliver Wahlstrom: Notches pair of assists

    Wahlstrom produced two assists, three hits and a plus-2 rating in Friday's 5-4 loss to the Coyotes.

    Wahlstrom helped out on Mathew Barzal's goal in the first period as well as Anthony Beauvillier's third-period marker. Over the last five games, Wahlstrom has racked up a goal and three assists, making this one of his best stretches of the season. He's been listed on the top line at even strength, but he's exceeded 15 minutes of ice time just twice all season. The winger has seven goals, nine helpers, 63 shots on net, 36 hits, 30 PIM and a plus-6 rating in 30 contests overall.

  • Islanders' Oliver Wahlstrom: Nets second-period tally

    Wahlstrom scored a goal during Friday's 6-4 victory over the host Devils.

    Wahlstrom has points in back-to-back games, but Friday's goal was his first in six outings. The 22-year-old right winger scored 34 seconds after Casey Cizikas as the Islanders pulled out to a 4-1 advantage in the second period. Wahlstrom also contributed four shots and two hits during 12:53 of ice time, including 1:07 on the power play.

  • Islanders' Oliver Wahlstrom: Scoreless in four straight

    Wahlstrom hasn't registered a point in his last four games.

    Wahlstrom has six goals and six assists in 25 games this season but only two goals in his last. Currently, Wahlstrom is playing on the top line with Mathew Barzal and Josh Bailey, but one has to wonder if coach Lane Lambert will shake up his lines once Kyle Palmieri and Cal Clutterbuck return from upper-body injuries.
