Today, Islanders goalie Jaroslav Halak is celebrating his 30th birthday.
The Islanders acquired Halak from the Capitals last May to be the teams number one goalie and subsequently signed him to a 4 year contract. In his first season, Halak gave the team all they could've hoped for and then some. He was a consistent rock for the Islanders in the crease and was instrumental in the team qualifying for the playoffs this season. If not for his great performance in game 7 against Washington, the Islanders would've had zero chance to win that game.
We here at savetheisles would like to wish Halak a very Happy Birthday.
