The last time most Metropolitan NHL fans saw forward Jay Pandolfo, the forward was hoisting two Stanley Cups in a New Jersey Devils sweater. It was announced today by the New York Islanders that the 14-year veteran has agreed to an opportunity to tryout with the team in the 2011 Training Camp.
The hopes for Islanders fans, is that the forward can bring those same Stanley Cup memories to the Island this coming season.
Pandolfo, who has agreed to attend the club’s 2011 Training Camp, has played in 819 career NHL games, recording 88 goals and 124 assists for a whopping 223 points. The forward also appeared in 131 career Stanley Cup Playoff games, as he was a key member of the 2000 and 2003 New Jersey Devils Stanley Cup Championship teams.
His best playoff season with the Devils came in 2003, when he scored six goals and 12 points in 24 games. Pandolfo was awarded the of the Frank J. Selke award after the 2006-07 season, and will look be another leader/goal scoring touch for the Isles this season.
