2014-2015 Islanders Preview: Blue Line Blues

The Isles should be in good shape offensively with a healthy John Tavares back in action, but the team will need to make significant strides on defense in order for a return to the playoffs to materialize.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014-15

Subscribe now to see our 2014-15 outlook.

2013-14

Nilsson posted subpar numbers last season in the AHL but is still currently third on the depth chart for the organization. A strong camp for Nilsson and a weak one by Kevin Poulin could find Nilsson on Long Island in October but more than likely he will be the first goaltender called up should Poulin or Evgeni Nabokov suffer an injury.

2012-13

Nilsson is currently second or third on the Isles depth chart behind Evgeni Nabokov, but is certainly a young netminder to monitor. Nilsson recorded a 1-2-1 record in four starts and a shutout last season while with the big club. Depending upon how this season goes for the Islanders, either Nilsson or Kevin Poulin could be ready to take over the reigns as starting goalie as early as the 2013-14 campaign. Remember his name in keeper leagues and expect him to see a few starts if the Isles suffer any injuries to their netminders.

2011-12

At 6-foot-5 and 220-pounds, Nilsson is a huge netminder, but also athletic and agile. The Islanders are loaded in net and Nilsson has little to no chance of playing for the Isles this season. Even a starting job in Bridgeport of the AHL is unlikely as that may be Kevin Poulin's job.

2010-11

Nilsson was the Islanders third round choice in the 2008 draft. A curious move by the Isles as they have Rick DiPietro under contract until the end of time and drafted a goalie in the second round of that draft as well. Nilsson still could make the NHL next season if he performs well and/or DiPietro continues his history of injury problems.

2009-10

Taken in the third round of the 2009 Entry Draft, Nilsson is a big netminder the Islanders will wait to develop and adapt to North American hockey. He is expected to return to Sweden for the 2009-10 season.
