Today, Islanders top prospect Ryan Strome turns 20 years old. Strome will be a participant in the Islanders Blue VS Orange scrimmage tonight from the Coliseum.
Last season, Strome dominated juniors accumulating 94 points in just 53 games. After ending his junior season, he played in Bridgeports final 10 games where he put up 7 points while playing on the wing for Brock Nelson. Strome was ranked the 11th best prospect in the NHL at the end of the season by Hockey's Future.
Strome will have every opportunity to make the team this season as either a center or John Tavares right wing. However, I suspect that he will start the season in Bridgeport barring an injury or something else happening. Even though he might start the season with Bridgeport, I don't think its to far of a stretch for him to a have a regular spot with the Islanders by the end of the season.
