Kyle Okposo scored four goals in the Islanders' 6-3 win over Pittsburgh on Friday night.

Okposo had a third period for the ages. With the Islanders trailing 3-2 in the final frame, the 26-year-old rattled off a natural hat trick to help give New York the win. It took Okposo a while to develop the offensive part of his game, but he had 69 points last season, and he's on pace to surpass that total this year. He has 13 goals and 41 points in 44 games. Teammate John Tavares assisted on three of Okposo's four goals.

Kyle Okposo notched a goal for the Islanders in their 5-2 win over the Blue Jackets on Saturday night.

In fact, the Isles got goals from five different players: Okposo, Matt Martin, Anders Lee, Brian Strait (plus an assist) and Nikolay Kulemin. Even though the goals (nine) haven’t come as high a clip, Okposo has been plenty productive this season with 37 points. The goals should continue to come, too, so long as he continues to average more than three shots per game.

Kyle Okposo was the lone goal scorer for the Islanders in Tuesday's 3-1 loss to the Canadiens.

The tally is the eighth of the campaign for Okposo, who has now racked up 29 points in 34 games, but those numbers could be much better if the winger wasn't saddled with an unlucky shooting percentage of 6.9. John Tavares and Lubomir Visnovsky drew assists on the goal.

Due to the NHL's mumps outbreak, the New York Islanders players decided to delay scheduled visits to children's hospitals on Tuesday.

"We're extremely disappointed that the event has been postponed, but understand the circumstances," forward Kyle Okposo said. "This has always been one of our favorite events to take part in because seeing a child smile when we give them a gift or take a picture with them is what the holiday season is all about. We're happy the children will still receive the gifts and look forward to visiting the local hospitals soon." It's not hard to see why the Islanders' players felt this was the right move given what recently happened in Pittsburgh. Beau Bennett recently paid a visit to Pittsburgh's Children's Hospital and then later found out that he had the mumps, which led to children being put into isolation.

Kyle Okposo netted a goal for the Islanders in their 3-2 win over the Blackhawks on Saturday night.

The Islanders were outplayed in the first, then turned on the jets possession-wise in the second and third periods. New York went down twice in the game, responding within six seconds in the second period and in seven minutes in the third. Okposo’s power play goal tied the game at two, and he has seven goals and 27 points on the year. Lubomir Visnovsky scored the winner, with Cal Clutterbuck getting the team's first goal of the game. Brock Nelson led the team with seven shots on goal.

Kyle Okposo scored and added an assist in the Islanders' 6-3 loss to St. Louis on Thursday night.

The righty has 26 points in 29 games this season to go with seven multi-point games on the year. Okposo is in for a tough test on Saturday against the Blackhawks and streaking goaltender Scott Darling.

Kyle Okposo's two assists weren't enough as the New York Islanders fell to the St. Louis Blues 6-4 on Saturday.

Okposo now has 24 points in 27 games this season, and he could improve upon his five goals considering his bad shooting luck (6.0 shooting percentage). Nick Leddy also had two assists while Frans Nielsen scored a goal and added a helper of his own.

Kyle Okposo didn't score but he certainly came close as he and the New York Islanders prevailed Monday night with a memorable, 1-0 shootout win over the visiting Philadelphia Flyers.

Okposo fired eight shots on net and was robbed on several good opportunities by Flyers goalie Steve Mason, who had a phenomenal game with 46 saves. Mason stopped Okposo on his shootout chance as well, but Frans Neilsen and John Tavares were able to get past Mason in the shootout and the Islanders were able to come out with a victory. It was their fourth victory in a row.

Kyle Okposo spent part of Tuesday's game on a line with Frans Nielsen and Mikhail Grabovski.

The ideal scenario for Okposo owners is that he would continue to play with John Tavares, but Okposo can be effective even without the superstar forward. Okposo had two assists Tuesday to extend his point streak to three games.

Kyle Okposo scored the shootout winner in the Islanders' 4-3 win over Florida on Friday.

Okposo also picked up an assist on John Tavares' second period goal. The 26-year-old has had a solid season so far in 2014-15. Okposo has five goals and 15 points in 16 games this season. He was also named the game's first star.

Kyle Okposo had a goal and an assist in a 3-2 overtime versus the Anaheim Ducks.

Okposo has only been held off the scoresheet once in his last seven games. He has five goals and 14 points in 12 contests in 2014-15. It's hard to see him maintaining that pace, but at the same time we don't expect him to decline significantly.

Kyle Okposo scored the only goal for the Islanders in their 3-1 loss to the Sharks on Saturday night.

Okposo potted the first goal of the game via assists from Nick Leddy and Johnny Boychuk. Okposo’s breakout 2013-14 season (27 goals, 69 points) does not appear to be a fluke as the 26-year-old has registered four goals and 12 points in 11 games this year. Cory Conacher had 10 penalty minutes, while Cal Clutterbuck recorded 11 hits.

Kyle Okposo's four-game point streak came to an end on Thursday.

The Islanders as a team couldn't do much in that game as they suffered a 5-0 loss to Colorado. Okposo emerged last season as one of the Islanders' top players and he's gotten off to a great start in 2014-15 with three goals and 11 points in 10 games.

Kyle Okposo had an assist in The Islanders' 5-2 loss to Toronto Tuesday night.

Okposo is off to a great start with two goals and eight points in six games. He set a career-high last season with 69 points and it wouldn't be shocking if he ends up doing a bit better in 2014-15.
