Michael Dal Colle is starting to play well for Bridgeport of the AHL.

He has teamed up with Joshua Ho-Sang and the duo have been impressive of late as Bridgeport has won 15 of their last 17. Dal Colle was taken fifth overall in 2014 and has 11 goals and 29 points in 52 games while Ho-Sang who was drafted 28th overall in the same year has 10 goals and 35 points. The two could be with the Islanders next season.

Cal Clutterbuck (lower body) is hoping to play Thursday when the Islanders play in Dallas.

Clutterbuck played Tuesday but was shut down quickly when it was obvious he was not ready to return. "We’ve had a couple of relapses, so that’s discouraging," coach Doug Weight said of Clutterbuck. "But the encouraging part is he stopped when he had to stop. He’s been pushing it too far. He wasn’t feeling right, but he kept playing and playing and playing, and then it’s gone too far." Clutterbuck has missed 10 of the last 11 games. He has always been among the league leaders in hits and while being out of action for so long hurts poolies who have him and use the category, his return will be a welcome addition.

Travis Hamonic (knee) will practice with the Islanders Monday.

Hamonic has been skating on his own of late as he has been out of the Islanders lineup since January 7. He has two goals and 12 points in 35 games but is usually the rock on the Islanders blueline.

The Islanders lost 7-0 to the Jackets Saturday night despite the five-SOG effort of Andrew Ladd.

None of Ladd’s shots made it to the back of the net as Joonas Korpisalo was incredibly stingy, but he earned some fantasy points nonetheless. He has made five or more shots on goal twice previously this season and he was notably unable to score in the December 16 overtime loss to the Sabres. His other high-shooting affair resulted in one goal on six shots one night earlier against the Blackhawks.

Neither Thomas Greiss nor Jean-Francois Berube could provide effective goaltending as the Islanders lost 7-0 to the Blue Jackets Saturday.

Greiss got the game off to a rocky start by giving up three in the first period on only 17 shots. It did not get any better with Berube minding the crease. He gave up two goals in the second and another pair in the third. With three wins in his last four starts and save percentages greater than .925, much more was expected of Greiss.
Feb 25 - 7:29 PM

Dough Weight has decided to forgo any lineup changes for Saturday's match with the Blue Jackets.

Which means that Cal Clutterbuck is still out with a lower body injury, and Adam Pelech will be a healthy scratch.
Feb 25 - 2:13 PM

Thomas Greiss will be in net against Columbus on Saturday.

He's already beaten the Blue Jackets once this season, stopping 21 of 23 shots in the victory. It's worth noting that Greiss has come back to Earth a little bit this month. He's 5-4 with a shutout and 26 goals against with an .895 save percentage.
Feb 25 - 12:51 PM

Shane Prince (upper body) took part in Friday's practice.

Prince might be able to return on Saturday. He's missed six straight contests.
Feb 25 - 5:44 AM

Anthony Beauvillier found the back of the net in the Islanders' 3-0 win against Montreal on Thursday.

Beauvillier has only been held off the scoresheet once in his last four games. He has six goals and 15 points in 46 contests in 2016-17.
Feb 24 - 6:54 AM

Josh Bailey recorded a pair of assists in the Islanders' 3-0 win over Montreal.

It was Bailey's second straight multi-point game. He has 12 goals and 43 points in 60 contests in 2016-17. That's a new career-high for him, up from his previous best of 41 points in 2014-15.
Feb 24 - 6:53 AM

Thomas Greiss turned aside all 24 shots he faced in Thursday's 3-0 win over the Montreal Canadiens.

Greiss didn't have to be incredible in this game, but he did come up with a few key saves. The team in front of his also did a great job clogging up the neutral zone and blocking shots. Greiss has now won three of his last four games. He owns a 20-11-3 record to go along with a 2.43 goals-against-average and a .920 save percentage.
Feb 23 - 10:47 PM

John Tavares scored a goal and an assist in Thursday's 3-0 win over the Montreal Canadiens.

The Islanders captain helped set up Anders Lee's goal early in the second period before putting the game to bed with an empty-netter late in the game. Tavares finished the game with a plus-2 rating and three shots on goal in 21:24 of ice time. He's up to 23 goals and 52 points in 60 games this season. Anthony Beauvillier also found the back of the net for New York.
Feb 23 - 10:40 PM

Adam Pelech will be scratched against Montreal on Thursday.

The talented young defender has played just 26 games with the Islanders this season, posting six points.
Feb 23 - 6:44 PM

Stephen Gionta will play Thursday against Montreal.

Through nine games with the Islanders this season the veteran winger has posted four assists along with 18 hits. He'll skate to the right of Nikolay Kulemin and Bracken Kearns on the team's fourth line.
