What Does the Future Hold for New York Islanders Defenseman Robin Salo? (+)

New York Islanders, Robin Salo

With Ryan Pulock returning to practice this past Thursday, there should be some hope that his return to the New York Islanders lineup will come sooner than later. What does Pulock’s eventual return to the lineup mean for 23-year old defenseman Robin Salo?

Salo has played in 17 games this season for New York and has shown a skillset that the Islanders backend desperately needs—and that’s speed. His skating ability has been a strength, as well as his ability to stop on a dime.

That last part led to his second career NHL assist on Casey Cizikas’ goal against the Philadelphia Flyers back on Jan 17.

He has filled in as the quarterback of the Islanders second power-play, which shows the faith Trotz already has in his young defenseman.
