Wahlstrom will make his NHL debut on Monday.

Wahlstrom is a 6-foot-2, 209 lbs. winger who was selected in the first-round (No.11 overall) of 2018. He had 19 points (8G / 11A) in 36 games as a freshman at Boston College before turning pro and joining the Bridgeport Sound Tigers, where he has six points (3G / 3A) in nine AHL games. He is expected to bounce around the lineup in his debut but is expected to skate with Mathew Barzal at times.

The Islanders have recalled Oliver Wahlstrom from Bridgeport (AHL).

Wahlstrom was the No.11 pick in the 2018 draft and seems poised to make his NHL debut on Monday afternoon. The 19-year-old winger has likely been recalled to replace Jordan Eberle, who was hurt in Saturday’s win. Wahlstrom has one goal and two assists in four AHL games, giving him six points (3G / 3A) in nine career AHL games.

Varlamov will start Saturday vs. the Panthers.

Varlamov was pulled after allowing four goals on 19 shots in the Islanders' loss to the Oilers on Tuesday. With Thomas Greiss starting Friday in Carolina, Varlamov will get the tail-end of the back-to-back vs. the Panthers. Florida hasn’t played al that well early-on, so Varlamov makes for a solid option for those in need of wins this weekend.

Greiss will start Friday in Carolina.

Greiss allowed one goal on eight shots after replacing Semyon Varlamov in the Islanders' loss to the Oilers on Tuesday. Greiss has been the better of the two goalies so far, stopping 42 of the 44 shots (.955 SV%) that he has faced so far. As good as he’s been, a road matchup with the Hurricanes is one to avoid right now.

Cizikas (undisclosed) will be a game-time decision on Friday.

Cizikas missed Thursday’s practice and Friday’s morning skate with what could be a lingering ankle injury from the preseason. Head coach Barry Trotz said “Casey will probably be a game-time decision,” so keep an eye on the fourth line centre as they hit the ice for warmups at 7:00 pm.

Leddy will be a game-time decision on Friday.

Leddy missed Thursday’s practice but was back on the ice for Friday’s morning skate and will be a game-time decision. Head coach Barry Trotz did not disclose what Leddy is dealing with, other than to say “he’s Goa little bit of a nagging thing.” Johnny Boychuk would slide back into the lineup if Leddy can’t play.

Varlamov led the Islanders onto the ice for warmups.

Varlamov stopped 26 of 28 shots in the Islanders 2-1 loss to the Capitals on Friday. Thomas Greiss had an outstanding outing vs. the Jets on Sunday, but it looks like Varlamov will go tonight vs. the Oilers. Everything is pointing towards this being a 50/50 split all season long. He faces an Edmonton team that is 2-0-0 while averaging 4.50 goals for per game so far.

Varlamov led the Islanders onto the ice for warmups.

Varlamov went 20-19-9 with a 2.87 GAA and .909 SV% in 49 games with Colorado last season. This summer the Avalanche let him walk in free agency, where he signed to take over for Robin Lehner in their timeshare. He draws a tough assignment for his Islanders debut with the Capitals in town.
