Yesterday, during the first day of the on-ice training camp, we saw the New York Islanders pair up Zdeno Chara and Noah Dobson on the blueline. And everyone was, rightfully, pleased. Having Chara take Dobson under his wing is only going to be a good thing for the young defenseman.
But Dobson isn’t the only youngster on the squad that could use a mentor. Oliver Wahlstrom is only in year two of his NHL career and is still learning how to be a good pro. Who better to learn from than Zach Parise?
