Brock Nelson scored a goal and an assist in Friday's 6-3 loss to the Montreal Canadiens.
Nelson picked up the primary assist on Tanner Fritz's game-tying goal (1-1) in the first period before adding a power play goal with four seconds left in the second frame to tie the game at three. Unfortunately for the Isles, they allowed Montreal to score three straight goals in the third period. They've now lost each of their last five games, which is less than ideal for a team with playoff aspirations. Nelson has 15 goals and 27 points in 65 games this season. This was his first goal in nine contests. Mar 2 - 10:15 PM

Brock Nelson scored a hat trick in Friday's 7-6 overtime win over the Detroit Red Wings.

The Islanders found themselves down 5-2 in the third period, but they managed to tie the game thanks to goals by Nelson (his second of the game), Anders Lee and Nick Leddy. They went up by a goal when Josh Bailey scored a power play goal with under two minutes remaining in regulation, but the Red Wings tied the game on a Mike Green goal with 29 seconds left. Nelson then completed the hat trick in the overtime period to give the Isles the win. He finished the game with a plus-1 rating and three shots on goal in 15:52 of ice time.

Brock Nelson registered an assist in the Islanders' 4-3 loss to Buffalo Thursday night.

Brock Nelson has reached the 20-point milestone.

Unfortunately, Nelson needed 54 games to get there, which puts him well below his pace from 2014-15 through 2016-17. He recorded between 40 and 45 points in each of those campaigns, but he might end up around the 30-point mark by the time this season is over.
Feb 6 - 5:53 AM

With his goal Saturday night against the Blackhawks, Brock Nelson ended a nasty goalless streak.

Nelson had gone 17 games since scoring his last goal on December 11th. He also added two assists in the 7-3 win over the Blackhawks. Perhaps this game will serve as a jumping off point for Nelson who has had a terrible first half of the season with only 17 points in 48 games.

Brock Nelson is having his share of troubles centering the third line.

One reason could be the multitude of wingers that Nelson has had this season as no one seems to be clicking with him. Nelson has nine goals in 38 games thus far but the Islanders need more from their third unit. "I thought Brock was better tonight," coach Doug Weight said of Nelson following Friday’s 4-2 loss to the Jets. "He had some opportunities, he was engaged. But yeah, we need more and it’s got to happen quick." He is not worth owning at this time.

Brock Nelson has new linemates on the third unit.

Nelson had been playing with Anthony Beauvillier and Joshua Ho-Sang but Beauvillier was moved down the fourth line while Ho-Sang was sent to the minors on Saturday. Nelson lined up with Cal Clutterbuck and Casey Cizikas. Nelson was a minus-one and was held off the scoresheet for the third straight game. He has nine goals and 12 points this season and should not be on your roster at this time.

Brock Nelson scored the game-winning goal in a 3-1 win over the San Jose Sharks.

Nelson was left wide open alone in front of the net and quickly buried the feed Josh Ho-Sang for his 3rd goal of the season. All three have come in the last two games for the Islanders. Nelson is up to four points in four games but should finish off the season around the 40-50 point mark. Anders Lee and Cal Clutterbuck also scored for the Islanders in the win.

Brock Nelson scored his first two goals of the season in Wednesday's 3-2 loss in Anaheim.

Nelson certainly did his part, beating John Gibson on a couple of even-strength tallies. However, none of his teammates were able to follow suit in the road loss. After being blanked in his first two outings Nelson has picked up two goals and an assist over the past two contests.

Brock Nelson was dropped to the fourth line in Saturday's game against Buffalo.

Nelson didn't have a great preseason, but coach Doug Weight was impressed with the forward's performance on Saturday. "Brock's best game in, well, the year for sure, preseason too," Weight said. "He was good, he was physical, very assertive, very reliable and he created a lot of offense. That was exciting for me to see and I needed to see it frankly. That line was very good." He skated alongside Nikolay Kulemin and Jason Chimera.

The goal gives him 42 points in 79 games this season, matching his career high of points with two games remaining in the regular season. He's a strong goal scorer who should only be owned in deeper fantasy formats. Scott Mayfield and Andrew Ladd also scored for the Islanders in the win.
