David Ullstrom(24) New York Islanders

New York Islanders‘ 4th round pick in the 2008 draft (#102 overall), 2nd year Swedish-born wing David Ullstrom(24) gets his first call-up and plays over 13 minutes of ice time posting two shots on net in his debut. He also went a -2 in the team’s 5-0 against Pittsburgh Penguins, which was also Sid “The Kid” Crosby‘s very low-awaited return to the game.

He didn’t look out of place out there playing with a team where pretty much every player looks like they are out of place (or just not where the puck is going).

Before his call-up, playing for Bridgeport Sound Tigers he shared the lead goal scoring spot with 3 others in the AHL at 12. In his rookie season he put up 17 goals and 24 assists in 67 games.
