Report: Isles send Strome back to AHL (Updated)

Jan 15, 2014, 11:31 AM EDT

From Newsday’s Arthur Staple:

The fifth overall draft pick in 2011, forward Ryan Strome made his NHL debut on Dec. 14 versus Montreal. In 15 games with the Islanders, he scored once and added three assists while logging an average of 13:31 in ice time.

The Isles saw their four-game win streak snapped last night with a 4-2 loss in Florida to the Panthers.

Strome, 20, scored his first NHL goal on Jan. 6 in a 7-3 victory over the Stars.

    This move makes very little sense.

      This move was made to ensure that Strome can play through the Olympic break. The NHL has a rule that states that a player who plays 15 of the 20 games before the Olympic break cannot be resigned to the AHL during the Olympics. Strome has just played his 15th game.

    He is also an AHL all star and can now play in that game, not that it makes any difference, just a fact.
