Simon Holmström No. 23 to the New York Islanders

Holmström’s skating is the product of several standout abilities. He has an explosive first step and generates bursts of speed that allow him to gain separation as he rushes the puck from one zone to another. I like Holmström’s top-end speed, and his ability to change directions, maintain balance and hold strong on the puck also rate highly. Holmström’s strides are strong and fluid, which offers him added elusiveness even as he carries the puck.
