I haven't written anything in a while. That's solely due to the riveting NHL playoff action that I have been glued to the television watching. There is other playoff action going on, too; some that even involves Islanders. Nino Niederreiter has been having a productive playoffs in the Western Hockey League.
Nino reached the 20 point mark on Sunday evening as his Portland Winterhawks evened their Western Conference Final series (versus the Spokane Chiefs) at one win apiece.
Nino has put up seven goals and 13 assists with a +6 over his first 12 playoff games. While he's still one goal shy of last year's 8, he has surpassed the point total from a season ago (16) and has a minimum of three games yet to play in this campaign.
Personally, I can't wait to see him get to training camp and infuse the left side of the Islanders with some scoring.
If you are a Twitter user and wish to follow Nino, his username is @hawksnids22. Good luck to Nino the rest of the way!
