2020 Fantasy Outlook
Wahlstrom skated in nine games for the Islanders last year, but failed to record a point. He spent the rest of the season with AHL Bridgeport, where he collected 22 points in 45 contests. Based on those numbers, it might be a lot to expect the 20-year-old winger to make the jump to the NHL this season. Wahlstrom, the 11th overall pick from 2018, would likely do just fine as an NHL scorer this year, but head coach Barry Trotz will want the Massachusetts native to be reliable in his own zone, as well. Another year or two in the minors will likely serve Wahlstrom well, but dynasty managers may want to stash him in case he makes an unexpected splash in 2020-21. Read Past Outlooks
$Signed a three-year, entry-level contract with the Islanders in March of 2019.
Good to go Sunday

April 11, 2021
Wahlstrom (undisclosed) will be in the lineup Sunday against the Rangers, Brian Compton of NHL.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Wahlstrom missed two games with his unknown injury, but he's ready to go Sunday. The 20-year-old winger has nine goals and 16 points in 32 games this season. He'll slide into his usual middle-six role.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2019
2018
The No. 11 overall pick from the 2018 NHL Draft struggled a bit to adjust to playing at the NCAA level, but he finished last season scoring eight goals and 19 points in 36 games with Boston College. With the U.S. National U18 Team in 2017-18, he posted 48 goals and 94 points in 62 contests. As many young players do, Wahlstrom still needs to work on his defensive traits, which could keep him out of the NHL another year, but the 19-year-old is a sensational scorer. In a small sample, he scored four goals and seven points in 10 AHL games last year, including the playoffs. Wahlstrom's likely still at least a year away from a full-time gig with the Islanders, but he should be owned in all dynasty formats.
Selected 11th overall in the 2018 NHL Entry Draft, Wahlstrom already possesses an NHL-ready body at 6-foot-2, 205 pounds despite being just 18 years old. A sniper, Wahlstrom collected a whopping 94 points over 62 contests with the U.S. National U18 team last season and has committed to playing out 2018-19 with Boston College. He could be a one-and-done candidate in the college ranks, allowing him to sign an entry-level contract after one season and potentially earn his first taste of professional hockey late in the campaign.
