As the New York Islanders prepare for their rematch against the Nashville Predators on Saturday at Bridgestone Arena, the team will most likely welcome back forward Andrew Ladd. To make room for Ladd when he is eventually activated off the injured reserve list, Tanner Fritz has been loaned to the team's American Hockey League affiliate, the Bridgeport Sound Tigers. On a separate note, the team has also parted ways with free agent signing Jan Kovar. Ladd Nears Return Ladd came to training camp early and ready to go. This summer, the veteran winger changed his offseason routine, looking to bounce back from a disappointing 12-goal, 29-point campaign. However, towards the beginning of training camp, Ladd left a scrimmage with what was described by head coach Barry Trotz as "tightness". The tightness, or whatever was bothering him, kept the 32-year-old out of 12 straight practices and all eight of the team's preseason games. At the start of the season, the team placed Ladd...

In today's News & Notes, Paul Stastny will be out for a few games, Kevin Shattenkirk will reportedly be benched and The Islanders are moving on from Jan Kovar. Stastny out at Least 3 Games The Golden Knights will be without Stastny for at least their next three games with the team set to re-evaluate him after those three games are done. The news is unfortunate for the Golden Knights who signed Stastny this offseason to play a big role for the team down the middle as their second-line center. Stastny has yet to record a point in a Golden Knights uniform through three games and fans will have to wait a little while longer to see him finally see the score sheet. As Jesse Granger pointed out on Twitter, the injury to Stastny appears to be his right leg as he had his legs taken out from under him inadvertently by Buffalo Sabres' forward Jack Eichel who made a diving play to try and stop Stastny from burying a puck late in the third period of Monday's game.

New York Islanders

The Lou Lamoriello era in New York is officially underway, and the team he now manages has jumped to a 2-1-0 start despite the tough opponents they have faced. With no game until their rematch against the Nashville Predators on Saturday at Bridgestone Arena, here are some things that stood out through the team’s first three games of the season. New Letter, Same Lee Just before Thursday’s season opener, Anders Lee was named the 15th captain in New York Islanders history. However, it appears the newly-stitched ‘C’ onto his sweater has not weighed him down, as the 40-goal scorer from a season ago has two goals through the first three games of the season. Both tallies have come in typical Lee fashion: working hard to find loose pucks and to maintain position in front of the opposing goal. His first of the season came on Saturday in Brooklyn where he scored off his own rebound to bring the team within one against the reigning Presidents' Trophy winners, the...

The New York Islanders have named Anders Lee the new captain of their franchise, the team announced Thursday. Lee will be taking over the reigns for the Islanders who lost their former captain John Tavares to the Toronto Maple Leafs in free agency. https://twitter.com/NYIslanders/status/1047875432098480128 With this news, Lee becomes the 15th captain in the history of the Islanders franchise - an organization that has been around for 46 years. Tavares, the team's 14th captain, had been captain since the 2013-14 season, donning the "C" on his jersey for five seasons before options to return home to Toronto. Lee Has Proven His Worth to the Islanders The 28-year-old Lee has been a member of the Islanders since being drafted in the sixth-round of the 2009 NHL Entry Draft (the same draft that saw Tavares picked first overall) and though he didn't break out as a star right away, he has proven to be among the NHL's best scoring wingers in the game today. Over the last two...
