Today, Islanders Hall of Famer, "Mr. Islander" Bob Nystrom is celebrating his 61st birthday.

Nystrom was a draft pick of the Islanders in 1972 and ended up playing his entire NHL career on Long Island and stayed on the Island following his retirement.  Nystrom is best known for being a tough hard nosed player during the Islanders dynasty of the early 80's.  Also, of course scoring the goal that won the Islanders their first cup in 1980 finishing off a pass from John Tonelli.

We would like to wish Nystrom a very happy birthday and you can follow him on twitter here.
