Johan Sundstrom (28)


New York Islanders‘ 2nd round pick in the 2011 draft (#50 overall), Swedish-born center Johan Sundstrom(28) starts his pro career like so many other first year players in the AHL due to the lockout.

Now that it’s settled, the 6’3″ 195 lbs. rookie forward will likely attend the big guys training camp but could find himself back on the farm with Bridgeport Sound Tigers for more seasoning.

He’s currently second in team scoring with 9 goals and 14 assists in 34 games and is a +7 plus/minus on what is on most nights a team that’s tough to beat.

The 20-year old is signed to a three-year entry level deal that if it’s not this season, there’s even a better chance in his sophomore pro campaign that he’s going to be an NHL regular. He’s already played two seasons in the Swedish Elite League.
