Today, is a big day for Islanders forward Ryan Strome as he is celebrating his 21st birthday.
Last season, Strome split time between the Islanders and their AHL affiliate the Bridgeport Sound Tigers. In 37 games for Bridgeport last season, Strome had 49 points including 36 assists. Meanwhile, in 37 games for the Islanders last season Strome had 18 points including 7 goals.
The way the lineup fills out now without any trades it would appear as though Strome is likely penciled in on the second line right wing for newly signed forwards Mikhail Grabovski and Nikolai Kulemin. With linemates like them it will only enhance Strome's development as he matures as a player.
We here at savetheisles would like to wish Strome a very happy 21st birthday.
