New York Islanders

Beauvillier and Wahlstrom Activated Out of COVID-19 Protocol

Published

Two familiar faces were back on the ice at New York Islanders’ practice on Friday morning. Forwards Anthony Beauilliver and Oliver Wahlstrom, who were placed in COVID protocol this past Sunday (Dec. 26), were full participants at practice. Both have officially been activated out of COVID-19 protocol.

As for their availability for the Islanders’ next game on Saturday against the Edmonton Oilers, Islanders head coach Barry Trotz gave an update on their status.

 

Wahlstrom has three goals and seven assists over his last eight games.

For Beauvillier, he was playing to the level expected of him following a slow start to the 2021-22 campaign. In the three games since being benched back on Dec. 11 against the New Jersey Devils, Beauvillier has played with much more energy and commitment.

He has just one goal over those three games but is creating chances for himself and his linemates.

Beauvillier has had 10 shots over the last three games. He had 10 shots in seven games prior to being sat.

With these two forwards being back, forward Brock Nelson (Dec. 28) and defenseman Sebastian Aho (Dec. 30) are the only two players remaining in protocol for the Islanders.

Forwards Kyle Palmieri and defenseman Ryan Pulock are the two injured Islanders. Palmieri was moved to IR prior to Thursday’s contest. Both are skating on their own as they continue rehabbing their lower-body injuries.

The Islanders are getting healthier. Given the hole they find themselves in in the standings, a healthy Islanders’ group is a must as they look to get back in the playoff picture.
