Islanders' Simon Holmstrom: Two helpers in OT loss
Holmstrom logged a pair of assists in Tuesday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Sharks,
Holmstrom set up Julien Gauthier's opening goal in the first period before adding a second assist on Mike Reilly's shorthanded tally in the third. The two assists are the first of the season for Holmstrom, who now has points in three straight games -- he's totaled two goals and two assists in that span after tallying five goals through his first 20 contests. While he's been limited to a bottom-six role, Holmstrom is one of the Islanders' more intriguing young options, so it wouldn't be surprising to see him work his way into a more prominent spot in the lineup....

Islanders' Simon Holmstrom: Scores in victory over Hurricanes
Holmstrom netted a goal in a 5-4 overtime win over Carolina on Thursday.
Holmstrom interestingly has now collected six markers in 21 contests this season without providing a single assist -- no other player has tallied more goals in 2023-24 without registering a helper. The 22-year-old also has a 31.6 shooting percentage, which is likely unsustainable, so don't be surprised if his goal-scoring pace declines.... See More ... See Less

Islanders' Simon Holmstrom: Tickles twine again Thursday
Holmstrom scored a shorthanded goal in Thursday's 5-2 loss to the Bruins.
The 22-year-old banged home a pass from Jean-Gabriel Pageau on the counter-attack early in the third period to tie the game at 2-2, but the Isles experienced another late collapse after that. Holmstrom has only four goals and zero assists in 11 games this season, but three of the tallies -- including two shorties -- have come in the first four games of November. The 2019 first-round pick showed a bit of an offensive spark at AHL Bridgeport a couple years ago, scoring 12 goals and 43 points over 68 games in 2021-22 as a 20-year-old, but as yet Holmstrom hasn't gotten many opportunities to make an impact in the NHL....

Islanders' Simon Holmstrom: Records two helpers Saturday
Holmstrom registered two assists in the Islanders' 4-0 win over Philadelphia on Saturday.
Holmstrom earned the first multi-point game of his career. Through 49 contests this season, the rookie forward has six goals and nine points. Holmstrom entered Saturday's action averaging 11:05 of ice time in 2022-23, but he averaged 12:58 over his previous eight contests and logged 12:10 versus the Flyers, so the 21-year-old has at least seen a modest increase in his workload....

Islanders' Simon Holmstrom: Scores fifth goal of season
Holmstrom provided a goal in the Islanders' 7-2 victory over Toronto on Tuesday.
Holmstrom didn't record a point in his previous nine appearances. He's up to five goals and six points in 43 outings this season. The 21-year-old entered the contest averaging just 10:51 of ice time, so it's not shocking that his offensive contributions have been rare.... See More ... See Less

Islanders' Simon Holmstrom: Pots fourth NHL goal, second GWG
Holmstrom scored his fourth goal in Wednesday's 2-1 win over the Jets.
The 2019 first-round pick hasn't been all that productive to begin his NHL career, but Holmstrom has displayed some ability to score in the clutch. Holmstrom has only four goals and one assist through 33 games as a rookie, but half of his goals have been game-winners. He potted the winner in this one, breaking a 1-1 tie halfway through the third period.... See More ... See Less
Islanders' Simon Holmstrom: One assist this season
Holmstrom only has three goals, one assist, and a rating of minus-1 in 28 games this season.
While it may be unfair to expect Holmstrom to be lighting up the scoreboard in his rookie season, it's safe to say more than one apple was expected from one of the team's top offensive rookies. Holmstrom rarely plays on one of the top two lines, which contributes to his lack of offensive success, but how can coach Lane Lambert justify moving him up to a scoring line when he isn't producing? It's the old chicken or the egg conundrum. Do you wait for him to produce before moving him up, or hope by moving him up, he will produce? The team isn't likely to have the patience to wait for him to figure it out offensively.... See More ... See Less

Islanders' Simon Holmstrom: Lights lamp in loss
Holmstrom scored his second goal of the season in a 5-2 loss to the Hurricanes on Saturday.
Holmstrom has struggled to begin his NHL career, with only two goals and one assist in 20 games this season. The goal was his first point in nine games.
