Jaroslav Halak will be in net against Columbus on Saturday.

The veteran netminder is 2-0-1 with just six goals against thus far in December. It's a small sample for sure, but it's also a trend in the right direction.

Cal Clutterbuck's new five-year deal with the New York Islanders is worth $17.5 million.

That $3.5 million cap hit seems like quite a bit for a 29-year-old forward that typically serves in the third or fourth line and usually records between 10-20 points per season. That being said, Clutterbuck has played beyond that description so far this season, averaging 15:26 minutes per game and recording nine points in 25 games. He's also stayed physical with 89 hits. This still seems like a lot of money to throw at him though, given that he might end up seeing his role decline again (it was just last season he was averaging 11:55 minutes) and he might also regress as the contract goes on.

Cal Clutterbuck has agreed to a five-year extension with the New York Islanders.

The financial terms of the contract weren't immediately known, but Clutterbuck is in the final season of a four-year, $11 million deal. Clutterbuck typically serves as a bottom-six forward and doesn't contribute a lot offensively, though his role has been somewhat different so far in 2016-17. He's averaging 15:26 minutes per game - the most since he joined the Islanders - and has two goals and nine points in 25 contests. He's also continued to play with the physical edge he's known for, as demonstrated by his 89 hits thus far.

Thomas Greiss stopped 24 of 26 shots in Thursday's 3-2 win over the St. Louis Blues.

The Blues got the first goal of the game less than five minutes in, but the Islanders battled back to regain the lead heading into the second period.

Dec 8 - 10:18 PM

Anders Lee scored two goals in Thursday's 3-2 win over the St. Louis Blues.

Cal Clutterbuck now has points in two straight games with his assist in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Rangers.

He's now up to seven helpers and nine points this season. He may not touch the 15 goals he scored last year, but he should be able to at least match the 23 points.
Dec 6 - 11:58 PM

Nick Leddy ended his personal five-game point drought with a helper during Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Rangers.

Leddy is now up to seven helpers and 11 points through 24 games this season. He's well on-pace to surpass his career highs of 10 goals and 40 points, both set with the Islanders.
Dec 6 - 11:57 PM

Scott Mayfield scored his first goal of the season during Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Rangers.

Add that one to the highlight reel. It was just the second goal and fourth point of his career through 14 games. Not a bad rate if he's ever able to stick in the NHL.
Dec 6 - 11:55 PM

John Tavares extended his magnificent run on points with his seventh goal of the season during Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Rangers.

The Islanders' Captain has yet to go consecutive games without missing the scoreboard since the first two games of the campaign. That means he has 20 points over his last 23 games.
Dec 6 - 11:53 PM

You're always told to just go to the net, and that's exactly what Jason Chimera did.

The veteran winger took a puck off his leg from Brock Nelson for his third goal over his last four games. Chimera is now up to four goals and nine points in 25 games this season. They also to learn from your elders, for what it's worth.
Dec 6 - 11:51 PM

Suddenly, Andrew Ladd is putting up points.

Ladd picked up his third goal of the season during Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Ranges. He now has three points over his last four games, with six points total. The great turnaround is gaining momentum.
