VIDEOS — Anders Lee and Ryan Strome Both Score in First Pro Games
Kevin Schultz , Islanders Point Blank:
Tonight both Anders Lee and Ryan Strome made their professional debuts for the Islanders organization; Lee at the Coliseum and Strome in Bridgeport. This will be a particularly memorable night for both players, as they each scored their first pro goal.
At the Coliseum, Lee opened the scoring with his first NHL goal on his first shot, beating Jets goalie Ondrej Pavelec.
Minutes later in Bridgeport, Strome scored his first pro goal for the Sound Tigers off a quick wrist shot that came directly from a Brock Nelson face off win. Strome is playing on a line with fellow first round picks Nelson and niño Niederreiter.
The future looks like it is almost here. At long last.
