Pierre-Marc Bouchard said he will do whatever he can to stick with Matt Moulson and John Tavares on the New York Islanders' top line.

"PMB" could be one of the more interesting sleeper picks if that remains the case. His injury history is so pervasive that it positively obscures his best moments, yet he's still a decent playmaker in the rare times he's healthy. He could rack up a lot of assists setting up those two goal-scoring machines.

Pierre-Marc Bouchard is parting ways with the team that drafted him in 2002.

Bouchard played in 565 games with the Minnesota Wild before signing with the New York Islanders this summer. "I’ll miss Minnesota," Bouchard said. "I really will. Knowing that I’m not coming back to Minny for training camp, it is kind of weird, but at the same time, it’s part of the business, and I’m really looking forward to a fresh start with the Islanders." Bouchard had eight goals and 20 points in 43 games last season.

"Both of those guys are highly skilled players who can produce offense; they've just been hit with the injury bug at times," Snow said. "We'll work at keeping them healthy and they should be solid contributors for our team."

Bouchard was highly regarded when drafted eighth overall in the 2002 draft but a series of concussion injuries have hurt his career. He showed some spark this past season but still ended up with only eight goals and 20 points in 43 games. Look for another NHL team to give him a shot as he is still only 29 years of age.
