Jesse Joensuu scored two goals including the game-winner in a 4-1-win against HPK in his first game back.

I actually thought that guy Mears did a good job back when King was only the color guy. Now that King does play-by-play it's pretty hard to listen to.

For those interested, a quote from Renegade Stylings who is very knowledgeable when it comes to the WHL. Regarding Reinhart:

Reinhart really has beast potential. I wish we could bring Potvin on as a coach to take this kid under his wing. Learning from a guy like that could really help him become an elite defenseman.

That said, I don't know how any Islander fan could not feel good about this team's depth at defense in the system. We have at least 4 guys who should become NHL regulars in some shape or form(Reinhart, deHaan, Donovan, Mayfield), and a handful of guys who are just a tier below who have potential to become solid 2nd or 3rd pairing players in their own right(Ness, Pedan, Kichton, Pokka, Pelech, Russo). Add a young Hamonic and MacDonald, who have already established themselves and should be here for a long time, and it's hard not to get excited about this team's future.

For all the heat Garth Snow takes, some deserved and some not so much, he has done a great job of building up this team's system. Not too long ago this team had absolutely zero prospects. At least none to get excited about. I remember at one point in the early 2000's our best prospect was probably Russian defenseman Alexei Stonkus, but right now he probably wouldn't even crack our top-20.

It was more like Alexei Stink-us. I agree with your comments though. Drafted 7 d-men this June, and if 2 or 3 make it, it will be a successful draft. I expect Reinhart, Pokka and Pelech to be fighting for spots in the Isle's top 6 down the road, as well as Mayfield and Pedan. Add in Donovan and De Haan, and we have a lot of D prospects, some may be traded some day, good quality chips to play with.

I think this guy has improved a lot since he left the Islanders, I can see him being a guy who could crash the front of the net on power plays. Seems to get a lot of his goals planting himself right in front, and tough to move. Not afraid to fight either.

Strome and Reinhart Can Be Recalled for a NHL Training Camp if Lockout Ends:

In late August, NHL teams had to submit short list (no more than 2 or 3) of drafted CHL juniors they would like to recall if lockout ends.
NYI: Strome, Reinhart
IF lockout ends, these players could be recalled to tryout for NHL team and then normal rules apply for keeping or sending back to jr.

I know nothing about him as a player per se. I never saw him play and don't know what his prospects were.

I wouldn't make fun of him though as he suffered a serious injury during a game with Metallurg Magnitagorsk after he was hit with a stick in the neck and then fell head first into the boards. He lost consciousness and was taken away from the rink in a state of unconsciousness that lasted some time. It ended up that two of his spinal disks in his neck were broken and required a four hour surgical procedure just to ensure that he'd ever even walk again.

He ended up missing two seasons to that injury and eventually rehabbed his way back into playing for a bit in Russia's first and second divisions.

We'll never know if he ever had any real NHL possibilities, but his career as a top level athlete was lost to a serious injury, so it was no laughing matter.

Just keeping everyone informed.

Didn't know if you or some of the others here simply weren't aware of Stokus' unfortunate story.

He was actually supposed to be pretty good.

Just joking with ya Chapin, using an old line from the movie "Stripes" to lighten things up here on the forum. Being an Islander's addict, of course I remember Stonkus and his unfortunate injury. I had high hopes for him as a prospect. Being a fan of Russian hockey, or their style of play, I was hoping he'd help on our blue line as a mobile d-man.

When and if the lockout ends teams are going to have very little time to prepare for
the season. The best thing for the Islanders to do is leave Strome and Reinhart where they are.

Which means they'll absolutely be called up for NHL camp. Think of the cap hits!

The Oil Kings are an absolute powerhouse team, crazy talent. They have to be the favorites to win the WHL and possibly the Memorial Cup.

Great to see Reinhart have a strong start to the season. From accounts in the Prospect section, he's looking like that future tower of power on the blue line for the Isles. His style may not be sexy, but the kid has all the makings of a beast.

Ugh, can't believe anybody would be a fan of Russian dmen after Vladimir "Maybe I'll Try Today" Malakhov....

I had some doubts about this pick but I'm happy to admit that I may be wrong. Good start to the season for him.

Dude, Malakhov had 10 million dollar talent, too bad he had a $5 brain. His first 2 years were excellent, then, fade into oblivion, though I believe he did win a Cup with the Devils.

Certainly has improved a whole in the last one and a half years. Jesse has seemed pretty much unstoppable ever since he got it going in the first game. Can't say if he can manage to get a spot on the powerplay in the NHL, but would say that playing like that he will be a really solid 4th liner at the minimum. Can't see him turning into a fighter, but will continue being physical in every other way he can.

Thanks for report...That's good news, because from what I remember he was criticized for being too soft for his size...
