 Ty Wishart Interview

The New York Islanders have acquired defenseman Ty Wishart from the Tampa Bay Lightning in exchange for goaltender Dwayne Roloson. Wishart will report to the Islanders' American Hockey League (AHL) affiliate, the Bridgeport Sound Tigers.

Wishart, 22, was the San Jose Sharks’ first round draft choice, 16th overall, in the 2006 NHL Entry Draft. Currently in his third professional season, the 6’4”, 222-pound defenseman from Belleville, ON, has 18 points (four goals, 14 assists) in 31 games with the Norfolk Admirals of the American Hockey League.

The Islanders’ newest defenseman has played in five career NHL games, all with Tampa Bay, and recorded one assist with an even rating. In 173 career AHL games with Norfolk and the Worcester Sharks, Wishart has 14 goals and 43 assists for 57 points. Before turning pro, Wishart played four years of junior hockey in the Western Hockey League with the Prince George Cougars and the Moose Jaw Warriors.

Roloson, 41, has a 6-13-1 record this season with a 2.64 goals against average (GAA) and a .916 save percentage. The Simcoe, ON, native has a 196-229-42-33 career record with a 2.64 GAA and a .910 save percentage in 532 NHL games. Roloson is just the 11th goaltender in NHL history to play a game after his 41st birthday.
