NHL Today: Islanders Prospect Check-In; Devils Marking Markstrom As Target




Good morning, my name is Andrew Fantucchio. It’s Monday, January 15, and here’s what’s happening around the NHL today.

Islanders News:

  • The Islanders are halfway through their season, providing more than enough sample size to hand out some player grades.
  • You couldn’t write a worse way possible for the Islanders to lose in Nashville on Saturday night.
  • A check-in down on the farm with the Bridgeport Islanders.

Kane Exits:

Despite the Lions winning their first playoff game since 1993, it wasn’t all good news in Detroit sports last night.

Red Wings forward Patrick Kane exited the team’s game against the Toronto Maple Leafs in the first period with a lower-body injury. According to Red Wings head coach Derek Lalonde, the injury doesn’t appear to be related to Kane’s hip, which he had surgically prepared last offseason.

No update has been given on Kane’s status as of yet.

In 19 games this season, the 35-year-old Kane has 16 points with seven goals.

Devils Making Push For Markstrom:

The New Jersey Devils have desperately needed help in goal this year and have had their names tied to every goalie on the NHL trade market to some degree, the latest of which being Jacob Markstrom of the Calgary Flames.

Yesterday’s Scoreboard:

Rangers: 2, Capitals: 1

Red Wings: 4, Maple Leafs: 2

More From National Hockey Now:

Philadelphia:  John Tortorella and Trevor Zegras couldn’t be any more different. However, that hasn’t kept Philadelphia Flyers head coach from voicing his admiration for the dynamic forward.

Pittsburgh: The biggest thing holding the Pittsburgh Penguins back is their power play, and changes will need to be made soon.

Boston: Jeremy Swayman will represent the Boston Bruins at this year’s NHL All-Star Game but is not letting the organization forget their rocky contract negotiations from this past summer.

Florida: Among all the players who are thriving for the Florida Panthers, Carter Verghaeghe isn’t being mentioned enough.

Chicago: As the Chicago Blackhawks rebuild, general manager Kyle Davidson has to maintain a tight balance.
