Strome will be a healthy scratch on Saturday.
It seems like the Islanders will be giving one forward the night off each game. Last night it was Frans Nielsen, tonight it will be Strome.
The Islanders have recalled Ryan Strome from Bridgeport (AHL).
The Islanders faithful had been waiting on Strome's recall for a long time, but he was unable to light up the scoresheet during his first recall. While centring the third line he had just one goal and three assists in his first 15 NHL games, but now with John Tavares out for the season, the door is open for Strome to earn valuable playing time. He has 49 points (13G / 36A) in 37 games with Bridgeport, so now the Islanders will look for him to take the next step and produce at the NHL level.
The Islanders have sent Ryan Strome to Bridgeport (AHL) to clear room for Radek Martinek to be activated.
Strome has no been the offensive splash he was expected to make, he recorded four points (1G / 3A) in 15 games with the Islanders. This could be a temporary move until Travis Hamonic is ready to return, but regardless Strome won't be in the lineup on Thursday.
Ryan Strome will make his NHL debut tonight.
Strome was recalled earlier in the week but has not got into the lineup. He was the fifth overall pick in 2011 and has tore up the AHL this season. Strome scored 174 points in 111 games in his final two seasons in the OHL and had nine goals and 33 points in 23 games with Bridgeport this season. The Islanders offence is in need of a jump-start, so they are hoping Strome can bring the spark that they need. It appears he will start tonight's game centring the third line with Brock Nelson and Cal Clutterbuck on his wings.
Strome will not play tonight.
Strome who was officially recalled on Wednesday will not play tonight because the Islanders want him to practice with the team before he makes his NHL debut. Look for him to play on Saturday vs. the Canadiens.
The Islanders have recalled Ryan Strome but he will not be in the lineup tonight.
There was some weather trouble for Strome's flight so he will now just meet the Isles in Phoenix tomorrow because the team did not want him to fly all-day today and then play tonight. He has been recalled because he has been torching the AHL and the Islanders have some serious issues when it comes to generating offence. Strome is expected to make his NHL debut on Thursday after posting nine goals and 24 assists in the first 23 games of the AHL season. The Islanders are not recalling Sidney Crosby, but Strome has some serious offensive talent and is worth a look in all leagues, but most of his value lies in keeper leagues at this point.
The New York Islanders have sent Ryan Strome to Bridgeport (AHL).
The Islanders are trying to give the 2011, fifth overall pick more time to develop. He is a good playmaking centre with great hands, but has not completely adapted to the NHL game, but he is close. Strome will certainly be the first forward called up from Bridgeport.
Islanders have told Ryan Strome and Griffin Reinhart that they are going back to their CHL clubs.
Obviously both players don't have any fantasy value now, but these are both names you should keep an eye on in the future.
UNIONDALE, NY (October 13, 2011) – The New York Islanders announced today that Ryan Strome has been assigned to the Niagara IceDogs of the Ontario Hockey League (OHL).
