News: Tavares (knee) has been medically cleared to begin skating again Monday, according to Islanders Point Blank.
Impact: Tavares tore his MCL and meniscus during the Olympics, and missed the remainder of the NHL season. He did not have to undergo surgery, but instead has been rehabbing the injury. The star forward should be at full strength well before next season begins.
Tue. Apr 15, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Visnovsky (concussion) is not considering retirement, according to Newsday.
Impact: Visnovsky missed 58 games this past season due to the concussion, but is still not ready to call it a career. He should still be a top-four defenseman for the Isles next season, assuming he can stay on the ice.
Mon. Apr 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Bailey had a spirited finish to the 2013-14 campaign, totaling 10 points over his final nine games.
Impact: Bailey at least managed to keep the Islanders competitive down the stretch in the midst of another lost season, as the team rolled to 9-3-2 record after Mar. 14. In the process, Bailey was able to set career-highs in assists (30) and total points (38) over his 77 games.
Mon. Apr 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Nelson capped his first NHL season with a goal Sunday against the Sabres.
Impact: Nelson's 26 points and minus-10 rating over 72 games weren't anything special for a player who saw a lot of time as a top-six forward, but it wasn't a bad showing for a 22-year-old. He probably won't be asked to play a frontline role with John Tavares set to return for the start of next season, but he'll still get plenty of run for the Islanders.
Mon. Apr 14, 2014 | STATS
News: Lee scored twice in the New York Islanders' season finale, a 4-3 shootout win over Buffalo on Sunday.
Impact: Lee had three of his nine goals in the final two games. He finished with 14 points in 22 contests this season.
Apr 13, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Nilsson will be in goal for the Islanders on Sunday, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.
Impact: Nilsson will get the start for the season finale on Sunday in place of Evgeni Nabokov. He made 25 saves on 27 shots on Friday, and will look to finish things off strong on Sunday heading into the offseason.
Apr 13, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Lee potted two goals, including a power-play tally, against the Sabres on Sunday.
Impact: The 23-year-old rookie scored nine goals and had 14 points in 22 games. This could be enough to keep him around next season, even if his role will likely be limited.
Apr 13, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Nilsson made 36 saves on 39 shots in a shootout win over the Sabres on Sunday.
Impact: Nilsson finishes the year with a .896 save percentage and 3.11 GAA. The Islanders will likely look to upgrade their goaltending situation for next season.
Sat. Apr 12, 2014 | STATS
News: Nielsen notched two assists in Friday's 3-2 shootout win at New Jersey.
Impact: Nielsen's 56 points are nine more than his previous career high set in 2011-12.
Sat. Apr 12, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Lee nabbed his seventh goal of the season in Friday's shootout win over the Devils.
Impact: Lee burst on to the scene after the Olympic break with six goals and five assists in his first 14 games, but he'd gone without a point in seven straight games before breaking through Friday. Despite a generally impressive rookie season, Lee probably won't enjoy nearly as much ice time in 2014-15, when John Tavares will have recovered from his knee injury to reclaim his top line spot.
Fri. Apr 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Strome played wing versus the Canadiens on Thursday, according to Newsday's Arthur Staple.
Impact: While on its own this position change is not all that important, it could show that the Islanders are willing to move Strome to wing next season in order to get him on one of the top two lines. As it stands now, the Isles' top two centers are John Tavares and Frans Nielsen, and Strome can better reach his potential by playing with talented forwards.
Fri. Apr 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Nielsen assisted on both Islanders' goals in Friday's shootout win over New Jersey, giving him a career-best 56 points on the season.
Impact: Nielsen has been one of the league's more quietly productive players this campaign with 25 goals and 56 total points on a team that has struggled offensively. He's benefited from the extra ice time he's seen with John Tavares out of the lineup, but he was also putting up solid numbers when Tavares was playing.
Fri. Apr 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Strome scored one of the Islanders' two goals in Friday's win over New Jersey and also registered the winning shootout goal.
Impact: Strome scored against Montreal on Thursday and again Friday against New Jersey, a power-play marker. He's still more potential than production at this point of his career, but he's one to keep an eye on next season.
Fri. Apr 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Nilsson stopped all but two of the 27 shots he faced in Friday's shootout win over New Jersey.
Impact: Nilsson has played in four of the team's last six games and did enough on Friday to earn a win, including stopping one of two shootout attempts. Nilsson's numbers on the season aren't the greatest, but the Islanders haven't exactly been a solid team defensively.
Fri. Apr 11, 2014 | STATS
News: Nabokov stopped all 19 shots in Thursday's 2-0 win at Montreal.
Impact: Nabokov has been strong down the stretch, going 3-0-2 with a 1.36 GAA in his last five starts.
Fri. Apr 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Nilsson will receive the start in goal Friday against the Devils.
Impact: Unsurprisingly, coach Jack Capuano will turn the net back over to Nilsson after Evgeni Nabokov started Thursday in the first game of a back-to-back. The young netminder's overall numbers on the season are far from solid (6-7-2, 3.21 GAA, .892 save percentage), but he's probably shown enough to keep him in the mix for at least a No. 2 gig with the Islanders in 2014-15.
Fri. Apr 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Coach Jack Capuano confirmed that de Haan (lower body) as well as the other injured Islanders will not return this season, reports Newsday's Arthur Staple.
Impact: With the Isles having nothing to play for, they'll sit the rookie defenseman -- who collected 16 points in 51 games on the year -- 'til next season's training camp.
Fri. Apr 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Coach Jack Capuano said none of the Islanders' injured players -- which includes Visnovsky (concussion) -- will return this season, reports Newsday's Arthur Staple.
Impact: Concussion issues limited the 37-year-old Visnovsky to just 24 games this season, during which he collected three goals and 11 points. With his history of injury problems and the particularly harsh ramifications of repeated concussions, it's not inconceivable that Visnovsky could hang 'em up for good.
Fri. Apr 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Coach Jack Capuano said none of the Islanders' injured players -- which includes Strait (hand) -- will return this season, reports Newsday's Arthur Staple.
Impact: Strait, who broke his hand back in mid-March, finishes the year with a minus-14 rating and a career-high (for what it's worth) nine points in 47 games,
Fri. Apr 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Coach Jack Capuano said none of the Islanders' injured players -- which includes Clutterbuck (upper body) -- will return this season, reports Newsday's Arthur Staple.
Impact: Clutterbuck wraps up a miserable campaign with 19 points -- his lowest non-lockout-shortened output since 2008-09 -- and 270 hits, the lowest non-shortened-season total of his career.
Fri. Apr 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Grabner (upper body) and the Isles' other injured players won't return this season, reports Newsday's Arthur Staple.
Impact: While Staple's Jack Capuano quote didn't directly mention Grabner, he's essentially been out a month and there'd be little benefit in rushing him back onto the ice for the last couple games of the year even if it were possible.
Fri. Apr 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Okposo (lower body) and the Isles' other injured players won't return for the final games of this season, reports Newsday's Arthur Staple.
Impact: With that, Okposo's breakout campaign is officially concluded, with the winger -- who turns 26 years old on Monday -- having collected an eye-catching 69 points in 71 games.
Thu. Apr 10, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Strome broke a scoreless tie with 4:55 remaining in the third period Thursday in Montreal, potting a power-play goal that held up as the game-winner.
Impact: The goal snapped a three-game pointless slump for Strome and was his first time finding twine in two weeks, as he last scored March 27. Don't be fooled by his meager 17 points on the year -- Strome has big upside, and he could start realizing it as soon as next season.
Thu. Apr 10, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Nabokov stopped all 19 shots that came his way in Thursday's 2-0 win over Montreal. He also assisted on Brock Nelson's second-period power-play goal.
Impact: In what's been a highly inconsistent year for Nabby, he's finishing on a somewhat high note, having notched shutouts in two of his last five starts while playing decently in the other three. He'll be 39 when next season starts and will more than likely have to settle for a backup role somewhere if he elects to continue his career.
Thu. Apr 10, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Clutterbuck (upper body) will not play Thursday against the Canadiens.
Impact: Clutterbuck left Tuesday's game with the injury and looks like he could miss the final two games of the season with the ailment. If it's the end of the campaign for Clutterbuck, he'll finish with 19 points and a minus-9 rating over 73 games.
Thu. Apr 10, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Nabokov will be in the crease Thursday against the Canadiens, Marc Antoine Godin of the Montreal Gazette reports.
Impact: After watching Anders Nilsson make the last two starts, Nabokov gets the nod in what could be one of his final starts with the Islanders. The soon-to-be free agent has alternated wins and losses over his last six contests.
Wed. Apr 9, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Nilsson stopped 28 of 31 shots but came away with his seventh loss of the season Tuesday against the Senators.
Impact: The Islanders held a 15-shot advantage on the night, but the offense just couldn't push more than one goal past Sens goalie Craig Anderson, who saved 45. Expect coach Jack Capuano to turn the net back over to Evgeni Nabokov on Thursday against the Canadiens.
Tue. Apr 8, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Nabokov stopped 28 of 31 shots in Thursday's loss to Ottawa.
Impact: For what it's worth, it's his first regulation loss since March 14, though he only made four starts in between, going 2-0-2.
Tue. Apr 8, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Clutterbuck was forced to leave the game Tuesday after suffering an upper-body injury, according to Newsday's Arthur Staple.
Impact: There is no immediate word regarding the severity of the injury, but with the Islanders only having two games remaining this season, we may not see Clutterbuck again until training camp.
Tue. Apr 8, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Nilsson will start Tuesday's game against the Senators.
Impact: Nilsson, who will be making his 15th start of the season, checks in with a .891 save percentage and 3.22 GAA overall, but he did hold the Sens to one goal on 36 shots in last Wednesday's 2-1 win.
Mon. Apr 7, 2014 | STATS
News: Calvin de Haan missed Sunday's game versus Columbus after sustaining a lower-body injury the day before. It is unknown how much time the defenseman will miss.
Impact: De Haan had an assist in Saturday's game versus Washington before leaving the game with the injury.
Thu. Apr 3, 2014 | STATS
News: Strome was credited with two assists in Wednesday's win at Ottawa.
Impact: The fifth overall pick in the 2011 draft, Strome is finishing his rookie season in strong fashion with four goals and seven assists over his last 14 contests.
