Oliver Wahlstrom is known for having a great shot, and now he's aiming it squarely at a crosstown rival of the team that selected him in the draft.

The promising forward had a message for a certain club that passed on him Friday night.

"The New York Rangers made a mistake there," Wahlstrom told the New York Post's Brett Cyrgalis at the New York Islanders development camp Tuesday morning.

Wahlstrom wasn't taken by the Rangers at No. 9 overall, as they opted for Russian winger Vitali Kravtsov with the first of their two first-round choices, and the Islanders chose Wahlstrom two picks later with the first of their two consecutive selections.

The Islanders host the Rangers on Nov. 15 in their first meeting of the 2018-19 season, and the two clubs will face off again six days later at Madison Square Garden.
