There are no two players that are quite as synonymous with one another as Johnny Boychuk and Nick Leddy. The two were acquired the same day as one another and have played alongside each other on the New York Islanders blue line ever since.

So this season will be a bit of a new experience for Leddy, along with the rest of the Islanders’ defensive core.

“I know with myself we came in on the same day together and basically have been together every day since,” Nick Leddy said. “I’ll definitely miss him a lot. I’m glad he can stick around the team and help us out in any way he can.”
