Nino off to good start at World Jrs

It took Nino Niederreiter 27 seconds to equal his point total in 9 NHL games
with the Isles earlier this season.

Nino was credited with an unassisted goal at 9:21 of the first period and then
added an assist 27 seconds later.

The Swiss lead Germany 4-2 midway through the third period.

Of the 22 players on the Swiss team, only 4 are younger than Nino -- one by only
a matter of days.

Forever1940 is the nom de plume of Eric Hornick, statistician on Islander home
telecasts since 1982. Visit my blog: forever1940.blogspot.com and follow me on
