Josh Bailey and Brian Strait will tag back in as Cal Clutterbuck Matt Donovan take a seat Friday night against the Devils.

Bailey has missed Tuesday's loss to the Canucks with a lower body injury. Only Clutterbuck has any fantasy value as he has 36 PIMs and 159 hits, which ranks third in the NHL through 38 games this season.
Jan 9 - 6:20 PM

Brian Strait, Matt Donovan, and Eric Boulton will all be healthy scratches once agains Saturday night in Buffalo.

The Islanders will roll with the same lineup they had Tuesday night against the Canadiens, so Strait, Donovan, and Boulton will be hard luck scratches. The trio has combined for just five assists in 31 total games, so no fantasy relevance for any of them.

Brian Strait, Matt Donovan, and Eric Boulton will all be healthy scratches on Friday night against the Red Wings.

Brian Strait and Eric Boulton will be healthy scratches Monday versus the Devils.

Strait had played in 19 games on the blue line for the Isles this season, recording two assists and a minus eight rating, but will continue to give way to the youngster, Griffin Reinhart, Monday against New Jersey. Also scratched for the Islanders is tough-guy, Eric Boulton, who’s played in just four games on the season and has nothing to show for.

Brian Strait will be a healthy scratch against the Blackhawks on Saturday night.

Since reaching the NHL in 2010-11, Strait has appeared in just 97 games, all with the Islanders. Which is to say he lacks much fantasy value even in the deepest of pools.

It was also the defenseman's first NHL goal of his career. Strait missed over seven weeks with an upper body injury and has three points in four games since his return. We would pass on Strait in pools at this time.
