New York Islanders

After splitting a back-to-back this past Friday and Saturday, the New York Islanders were back on the practice ice Monday morning. Besides defenseman Adam Pelech, the New York Islanders had everyone on the ice, including forward Kyle Palmieri. New York Islanders head coach Lane Lambert provided an update on all injured personnel:

During practice, while the Islanders were doing two-on-two drills in a small space, forward Mathew Barzal lost an edge and slid into Lambert.

Lambert joked after that Barzal almost got his ankle, but that he was all good.

Kyle Palmieri Getting Closer, Lambert’s Likely Lineup Upon Return

The New York Islanders could soon be getting sharpshooter Kyle Palmieri back in the lineup, as after a nine-game absence, he rejoined the group for Monday’s practice. Although we do not know if he will play Tuesday night against the Boston Bruins, we do know that he is making the trip, a five-game road trip. Given that he practiced and did not look limited, despite not taking part in line rushes, he’s definitely close to returning.

The importance of his return and how Lambert might decide to use his lines:

Pelech Injury Status Cloudy; Can Islanders Fill the Hole?

Every NHL team has to deal with injuries throughout a season, but it’s the monumental injuries that can have catastrophic effects on a season. For the New York Islanders, 28-year-old defenseman Adam Pelech is one of those players whose absence has the potential to be a make-or-break loss for the organization.

Classified as a day-to-day upper-body injury after being demolished while off-balance by St. Louis Blues defenseman Robert Bortuzzo last Tuesday, the injury to Adam Pelech is undoubtedly head-related based on how his helmet bounced off the end boards behind netminder Ilya Sorokin, with the neck potentially being a cause for concern as well.

Per Lambert, Pelech will not be in Boston, but they are hoping he can join the team on the road trip. Can the Islanders tread water in his absence?

Michael Dal Colle Reflects on Time With Islanders, Growing Game Overseas

This past summer, the Islanders elected to move on from their former 5th overall pick in 2014, Michael Dal Colle. Once a promising prospect, Dal Colle failed to prove himself at the NHL level in 112 league games throughout a five-year period.

He spoke with Tiia Honkamaa of Jatkoiaka about his time with the Islanders, his decision to play in Europe, and his hope to return to the NHL someday:
