2020-03-25 analysis The season was really split into thirds for Holmstrom. He had five points in his first 20 games, then missed 13 games with an upper-body injury, before having a stretch of five goals in eight games. Holmstrom was a risky first-round pick for the Isles in the 2019 draft as some teams felt his injury history made him a risky bet. Holmstrom will likely begin next season in the AHL and his play will d

2019-12-13 analysis Holmstrom was also goalless in nine games for the Islanders earlier this season. The good news is that Holmstrom was told by general manager Lou Lamoriello and coach Barry Trotz upon being sent down that learning to play Islander hockey was more important than scoring goals. What that means is that they know Holmstrom can score, what they want him to do is play better in his defensive zone.

2019-11-03 analysis Holmstrom has struggled with his transition to North America so far this season.
