Sundstrom Signs

Prospect Johan Sundstrom has signed an ELC with the Islanders. Rejoice.

Ridderwall staying with Djurgården

"Djurgården is my team," the Islanders 2006 pick said. The headline links to a Google translation of this article in Expressen. Looks like the opportunity to stay there was too much to pass up after last season's goalie partner Gustav Wesslau departed for Columbus.

Calvin de Haan Signed

Good to hear. Edit from Dom: To answer a FAQ, per the CBA he'll still be in either juniors or the NHL next year (not AHL), but if he makes or is called up to the Isles for 10 games, this contract kicks in. For more lovely CBA-ese, you can download the full doc here.

It's over for Rakhshani: RIT upsets Denver

Wow. Top seed DU outshot RIT 40-25 but lost 2-1. For team captain and Isles prospect Rhett Rakhshani, that's it. Great line from Michael Fornabaio: "Rhett Rakhshani, call your a… AN agent. Call an agent."

de Haan Surgery/Rehab Update

Sounds like things are going well, according to the local Kemptville EMC. I liked this: "They (Islanders) paid for everything. That's pretty good for a player who hasn't even signed a contract," [the elder] de Haan chuckles.

Travis Hamonic returned to action for Brandon of the WHL earlier this week

I'm surprised this news went under the RADAR around here. I stumbled across the news completely by accident. Hamonic played in two games since his return, a 4-0 to Vancouver and a 3-0 to Chilliwack. He went scoreless with 2 PIMs. This is really good news as it seems he's about a month ahead of schedule.

Anders Lee USHL Player of the Week

"Lee scored five points (3g, 2a) and registered a plus-five rating as the Gamblers won two of three games over the weekend. He recorded three points (2g, 1a), including the game-winning goal, in Wednesday's 7-5 win over Tri-City. ... [He] is top scorer for the Gamblers with 47 points (24g, 23a) while playing all 41 games during his first USHL season. He also leads the League with a plus-32 rating." Nice to hear Lee hasn't let up. I know one reader who will be very pleased at the news. For newer readers, check this LH interview with Lee from last month.

Rhett Rakhshani

Little write-up at College Hockey News about his senior season, his decision to decline the Isles' offer to leave school early. I'm looking forward to seeing more of him, not looking forward to learning how to spell his name.

Andy Mac is Back

Mike Fornabaio reports that Andrew MacDonald was called back up before tonight's Bridgeport Sound Tigers game. No word yet if it's a precaution or if someone (Gervais?) definitely got banged up today.
