from Mark Everson of the NY Post,
That’s really swift justice.
Before he even plays his first official NHL game, Islanders first-rounder Ryan Strome faces a potential suspension from NHL VP Brendan (Robespierre) Shanahan, who has been handing out lengthy punishments like candy at Halloween.
Strome was ejected for boarding Devils forward Stephen Gionta with 3:14 left in the Devils’ 1-0 exhibition triumph last night in Newark.
Strome, taken fifth overall in June, one slot behind Devils’ pick Adam Larsson, voiced remorse, insisting that’s not his style, but expecting to hear from Shanahan.
Also, Nick Kypreos reported this morning Clarke MacArthur may be meeting with Shanahan too…
Yesterday, Hockey’s Future named Nino Niederreiter and Ryan Strome to the top of the NY Islanders prospect list. Nino and Strome are very talented forward prospects and, barring some unforeseen circumstance, will be bright spots among the other young, talented forwards on the Islanders for many, many years to come. As stated many times on this blog, I fully expect Nino to make the team out of training camp. I expect Strome to be with the Islanders full-time at the start of the 2012-2013 season.
NHL.com went all access with rookie Ryan Strome at the 2011 NHLPA Rookie Showcase in Toronto. Watch the video. Strome also spoke at the showcase and said that he is enjoying himself with the guys and is having a good time taking a step back from competition before training camp starts.
Strome also took the time to attend a Toronto Blue Jays game with #2 overall pick Gabriel Landeskog of the Colorado Avalance. As you can tell by the video, Landeskog needs quite a tutorial on the game of baseball.
The 2011 NHLPA Rookie Showcase begins tomorrow. Ryan Strome, the NY Islanders prospect who was drafted 5th overall in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft, will be among 27 rookies in attendance tomorrow in Toronto. Read more from NHLPA.com.
In prospect news, Scott Mayfield, a highly touted defenseman drafted by the NY Islanders 34th overall in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft, confirmed over the weekend that he will be playing hockey for the University of Denver this fall. Read more from The Pipeline Show.
TII Thoughts: It is very interesting that Mayfield mentioned in the interview with The Pipeline Show that he might stay at DU for 3 or 4 years due to the depth of prospects in the Islanders system. Mayfield also discussed how much he values a college education and his connections to the Denver area. Mayfield notes that if he went to play in the CHL for the Kitchener Rangers he would only have two years of eligibility there and he said “I don’t want to mess around with that.” At such a young age, I think it shows a lot of maturity that Mayfield realizes the depth of defense prospects in the Isles system and doesn’t want to rush himself and is willing to spend three or four years in college to develop his game and become a better hockey player.
