'The Islander' revealed as 29th NHL Guardian
The Blue

(Click image to enlarge)

The Islander is the toughest man to ever set foot on the earth and though an avid sailor, he's happiest when he reaches his port. At 7 feet tall and almost as wide, he wears a metal mesh shark suit with chainmail suspenders hooked over his burly shoulders. His main weapon is a massive grappling hook with three prongs that each resembles a hockey stick.

The superhero abilities the Islander possesses, outside of super strength, are two forms of hydrokinesis. He can alter ocean currents, control weather patterns and wind at sea, and creates rogue waves or even tidal waves if the need arises. He has the ability to turn parts of his body into sea water in order to slip into an enemy stronghold undetected or to avoid injury. The Islander, in short, is the Guardians' resident marine.
Quote of the Day

I spent a long summer thinking about that playoff series and what could have been. [The Blackhawks] ended up being the Stanley Cup champions, so we know we lost to a very good team. It's tough to know how close we were, and it motivates us for this year.

— Nashville captain Shea Weber in an interview with the Predators website
