Happy Birthday Brian Strait

Today, Islanders defenseman Brian Strait is turning 26 years old.

The Islanders claimed Strait from the division rival Penguins before last seasons lockout shortened season.  Early on in his Islanders career they were so impressed with his play that they gave him a 3 year contract extension.  This season, since returning from his injury, Strait has been really big for the Islanders defense which struggled pretty bad without him.
