The goals don't actually count at New York Islanders Mini Camp, but for the Isles prospects, getting one by Linus Soderstrom usually warrants a celebration.
It's no easy feat beating the 6'5 Swede, who turned heads with his banner year for HV71 in the Swedish Hockey League. Soderstrom, the Islanders' 2014 fourth-round pick, backstopped the SHL title this season - and his 1.34 goals-against average set an SHL record. Overall, Soderstrom went 18-4-0 in the regular season, with a 1.34 GAA, .943 SV% and six shutouts, before going 12-4 in the postseason.
"He's a heck of a goaltender and had a really good year in a really good league," Islanders Head Coach Doug Weight said.
