Islanders' Oliver Wahlstrom: Heads to Team USA camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Islanders loaned Wahlstrom to USA Hockey on Tuesday for the organization's upcoming World Junior Camp.

Wahlstrom has played only a minor role in his nine games with the Isles to date, averaging 10:17 in ice time while failing to generate his first NHL point. The World Junior Camp should provide him with more consistent opportunity to train with some of United States' other elite young talents while opening up a roster spot for AHL Bridgeport in the process. Josh Ho-Sang, who ended his season-long exile from the Islanders on Monday, is expected to report to Bridgeport and replace Wahlstrom, per Arthur Staple of The Athletic.

Islanders' Oliver Wahlstrom: Sent to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Islanders reassigned Wahlstrom to AHL Bridgeport on Saturday, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

The Islanders got through warmups for Saturday's matchup against the Panthers without any surprise injuries, so Wahlstrom was returned to the minors. The 19-year-old will continue his development by logging top-line minutes in the AHL compared to averaging just 10:17 with the big club.

Islanders' Oliver Wahlstrom: Yet to register a point
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wahlstrom doesn't have a goal or assist in five games this season.

Five games is the smallest of sample sizes and doesn't truly reflect what the future may have in store for Wahlstrom. If the Islanders weren't dealing with several injuries at the forward position, Wahlstrom could find himself a healthy scratch more often than not or even possibly be sent down to the minors. That said, the injuries will allow Wahlstrom to try and find his game for the foreseeable future.

Islanders' Oliver Wahlstrom: Future unclear
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wahlstrom impressed the Islanders with his play during their 3-2 overtime victory over the Blues on Monday, Brian Heyman of Newsday reports.

Wahlstrom was called up due to injuries to Casey Cizikas (lower leg) and Jordan Eberle (lower body). Wahlstrom didn't score during the win but made an impression with his speed, shooting ability, and his willingness to throw his body around. Whether or not he stays with the team or is sent back to the AHL likely depends upon the health of the team and whether or not coach Barry Trotz is willing to bench a less skilled but veteran player for Wahlstrom and his upside. The other key could be whether or not the Islanders believe that Wahlstrom is best served by playing fewer minutes in the NHL or continuing to learn and play top minutes at the AHL level.

Islanders' Oliver Wahlstrom: Set for NHL debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wahlstrom will make his NHL debut in Monday's game against the Blues, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

Wahlstrom was expected to spend most of his time with AHL Bridgeport unless injuries necessitated his call-up, which they did when Jordan Eberle (leg) was ruled out for this contest. The 19-year-old has been impressive with three points in four AHL games this season, and coach Barry Trotz said he would rotate him in on the top line with Mathew Barzal, although it doesn't appear that will be his role all game. Wahlstrom still has a good shot at getting power-play minutes as well. If he plays well, Wahlstrom could stick with the big club for a while, but once Eberle's back he may be best fit getting consistent top-six minutes in the minors.

Islanders' Oliver Wahlstrom: Moves up to NHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Islanders recalled Wahlstrom from AHL Bridgeport on Monday.

The 2018 first-round pick will get his first taste of the NHL after potting a goal and handing out two helpers in his first four games with Bridgeport. The Islanders' decision to promote the 19-year-old may be a byproduct of top-line wing Jordan Eberle (leg) suffering an injury in Saturday's win over the Panthers that puts the veteran's availability for Monday's game against the Blues in jeopardy. With the puck dropping at 1 p.m. EDT, more information on Eberle's status -- as well as what line Wahlstrom might skate on should he make his NHL debut -- likely won't come until pregame warmups.

Islanders' Oliver Wahlstrom: Sent to AHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wahlstrom will begin the season with Bridgeport of the AHL, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

Wahlstrom is one of the top offensive players for the Islanders but had little chance to make the club out of preseason. Wahlstrom is ticketed to play most of the season in Bridgeport unless injuries necessitate his call up. He may not be the first player called up in case of injury, but he won't be the last either. The biggest weakness for the Islanders is goal scoring, and a strong start to the season in the AHL combined with a slow start on offense by the Islanders could eventually force the team's hand.
