Hockey Player
    (October 10, 1952- )
    Born in Stockholm, Sweden
    Raised in Hinton, Alberta, Canada
    Birth name is Robert Thore Nystrom
    Forward for the New York Islanders (1972-86)
    Drafted 33rd overall by the New York Islanders in the 1972 NHL Entry Draft
    He was a pretty boy during his career.
    Despite his popularity on Long Island, he was often overlooked by the media in the New York hockey scene.
    His playing career was defined by one moment.
    He spent the majority of his final season as a healthy scratch, prior to nearly losing an eye in practice.
    He was considered way too serious by teammates and pundits alike.
    He was a mainstay on the Islander roster from the franchise's inaugural season to his retirement.
    He scored the overtime winning goal that helped the Islanders win the first Stanley Cup in franchise history (1980).
    He was considered a gritty player, which was virtually unheard of for a Swede.
    He was able to retire from active play at an even 900 career games.
    He had his number 23 retired by the franchise (April 1, 1995).
