Player News - Islanders

Date: Team: Pos:

Scott Mayfield has been sent to the minors.

Mayfield was a healthy scratch on Thursday with Dennis Seidenberg (jaw) returning to the lineup. Mayfield has two assists and 17 penalty minutes in two games with the Islanders.
Dec 2 - 11:27 AM

Shane Prince picked up his fourth goal of the season during Thursday's 3-0 win over the Capitals.

Prince is now up to four goals and eight points in 16 games this season. It's almost as if they should play him more often.
Dec 2 - 1:08 AM

Josh Bailey extended his assist-streak to four games during Thursday's 3-0 win over the Capitals.

The long-time Islander now has 11 helpers and 14 points in 23 games this season. His career high is 30 helpers and 41 points.
Dec 2 - 1:07 AM

Finally, Andrew Ladd as a point streak this season.

Ladd has helpers in consecutive games, giving him three assists and five for the campaign. Could this be the start of a great turnaround by a multiple Stanley Cup champion? Stay tuned!
Dec 2 - 1:05 AM

Jason Chimera now has goals in consecutive games.

The veteran is now up to three goals and eight points in 23 games this season. Not quite first-line material.
Dec 2 - 1:03 AM

Brock Nelson scored his first goal in five games during Thursday's 3-0 win over the Capitals.

Nelson now has points in three of his last four games, giving him six goals and 15 points in 23 games.
Dec 2 - 1:02 AM

Casey Cizikas now owns a point streak.

Cizikas picked up his sixth helper of the season during Thursday's 3-0 win over the Capitals, giving him nine points in 23 games thus far.
Dec 2 - 1:01 AM

With his 12th helper of the season, John Tavares now has points in three of his last four games.

Heck, the Islanders even beat the Caps 3-0 on Thursday. Their Captain is now up to 18 points in 23 games. He's shooting at just 8.7%, well below his career mark of 12.8%.
Dec 2 - 1:00 AM

Jaroslav Halak stopped all 38 shots the Capitals sent his way during Thursday's 3-0 win.

Wow, now that's the kind of game confidence can be built upon. Halak also turned away all six shots on the kill. Halak was simply sensational, and his record now stands at 4-6-4 with a .911 save percentage and a 2.86 GAA.
Dec 2 - 12:58 AM

Alan Quine will tag in for Anthony Beauvillier against the Capitals on Thursday.

Quine has posted just three points with just 12 shots on net and 24 hits in 13 games this season, so he probably belongs on the wire. Beauvillier has posted two goals and seven points with 22 points in 18 games thus far.
Dec 1 - 6:22 PM

Jaroslav Halak will be the Islanders' starter Thursday night.

Halak stayed on the bench for the Islanders' last three contests. He has a 3.08 GAA and .904 save percentage in 14 games this season.
Dec 1 - 5:42 PM

Adam Pelech (upper body) has been moved to the injured reserve list.

Pelech's shift to the IR list probably has less to do with any new information about his status and more to do with the fact that Dennis Seidenberg was ready to be activated, so those moves cancel each other out from a roster size perspective. Pelech has a goal and three points in nine games this season.
Dec 1 - 5:40 PM

Dennis Seidenberg (broken jaw) has been taken out of the injured reserve list.

Seidenberg will play on Thursday, which means that Scott Mayfield will be a healthy scratch. He has four goals and eight points in 15 contests in 2016-17.
Dec 1 - 5:38 PM

Andrew Ladd had an assist in the Islanders' 5-3 victory over Pittsburgh on Wednesday.

It was just Ladd's fourth point in 22 games this season. Ladd has been a huge disappointment so far this season and to make matters worse for fantasy owners, his role has been declining as a result. Even though he got an assist on Wednesday, he logged just 12:29 minutes of ice time. Keep an eye on him because a big rebound is possible, but we wouldn't go so far as to call it probable at this point.
Dec 1 - 11:16 AM

Thomas Greiss allowed three goals on 34 shots in a 5-3 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Greiss gave up a 3-0 lead entering the third period but was still able to hold on for the win. He has now started three consecutive games, winning his last two, and has not allowed more than three goals in any of those starts. Of all the three goalies on the Islanders roster, it appears that Greiss gives them the best chance of winning. It will be interesting to see if coach Jack Capuano continues to roll with Greiss moving forward. The Islanders need to pick one goaltender and let him get comfortable in the crease instead of rotating all three of them. The win improves Greiss' record to 5-4-0, with a 2.47 goals against average and a .919 save percentage.
