TORONTO — Another day, another injury, which means another New York Islanders prospect has been recalled from Bridgeport. This time it’s 22-year-old defenseman Samuel Bolduc who joins the group up in Toronto.

The Islanders face the Leafs Monday night at 7 PM ET.

Drafted in the second round of the 2019 NHL Draft, injuries delayed Samuel Bolduc’s growth, but this season has been his breakout year in the AHL.

Despite being injured during Islanders training camp, disallowing him from playing in any of the preseason games, Bolduc has not missed a beat in 2022-23.

In 40 games, the left-shot defenseman has eight goals and 18 assists, already setting AHL career highs across the board in his third season in Bridgeport. Due to his performance, he was selected to represent the Bridgeport Islanders at the 2023 AHL All-Star Game in Laval, Quebec.

Back in early December, NYI Hockey Now spoke with Bridgeport general manager Chris Lamoriello about the status of the AHL team, and he shared some thoughts on Bolduc:

“It’s great to see him healthy. It’s great to see him a year older, wiser. His first year, we only played 24 games with that COVID-shortened season after the initial disruption of the season. We’re most satisfied that he’s been in a position to fully participate and really start to build his foundation and take advantage of his talent. I think that’s something that is very easy to recognize, that he’s a very talented player and he’s a good kid. He’s an intelligent player, and we’re just looking forward to to continue the process with him.”

This story will be updated following morning skate and Lane Lambert press conference as we see who Samuel Bolduc comes in for.
