Schremp, 24, posted NHL career-highs in goals (7), assists (18), points (25), penalty minutes (8) and games played (44) last season with the Islanders after being claimed off of waivers from Edmonton on September 29, 2009. The Syracuse, NY, native saw his rookie campaign cut short by a knee injury, suffered on March 9, 2010 at Philadelphia; he missed the final 16 games of the 2009-10 season recovering from surgery.
“We were excited to pick up Rob at the start of last season when he was put on waivers, and he responded by putting together a strong rookie campaign,” said Islanders General Manger Garth Snow. “We look forward to seeing him continue to improve and contribute at this level next season.”
The Oilers selected Schremp in the First Round (25th overall) of the 2004 NHL Entry Draft. Prior to last season, Schremp (5’11, 200 lbs.) played in seven NHL games with Edmonton, recording three assists. Schremp has appeared in 216 AHL games with the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins and the Springfield Falcons, totaling 47 goals and 124 assists for 171 points. In four OHL seasons with the Mississauga IceDogs and the London Knights, Schremp scored 384 points (154 goals, 230 assists) in 307 games.
