NYHN Daily: Islanders Make Their Moves Prior to Trade Deadline & More



New York Islanders Logo

As the NHL Trade Deadline came and went yesterday, the Islanders stood pat. Islanders general manager made all the moves he needed to make prior. The addition of defenseman Braydon Coburn added size, strength, and experience to the Islanders at a very low cost. These stories and more on today’s daily links!

The 3 p.m. NHL trade deadline came and went on Monday with little fanfare for the New York Islanders. No, unlike past years they didn’t stand pat, rather general manager Lou Lamoriello had already made the moves that he wanted to make well beforehand. (NYI Hockey Now)

The Islanders added veteran defenseman Braydon Coburn in a late-night deal just after they had defeated the New York Rangers 3-2 in overtime. A seventh-round pick in next year’s draft was sent to Ottawa as part of the trade. The trade — the Islanders’ only other move before Monday’s deadline — wasn’t a flashy one but brought in a player that Lamoriello felt has plenty of experience. (NYI Hockey Now)

It wasn’t the first time Ilya Sorokin and Igor Shesterkin squared off against one another, and it won’t be the last time, but New York hockey fans got a glimpse of where the region’s best rivalry is headed on Sunday night. Sorokin took the first game in the battle of friends and highly touted Russian netminders as his Islanders defeated Shesterkin’s New York Rangers 3-2 in overtime. It may have taken five games before the two would face one another, but the efforts from both goaltenders made it worth the wait. (NYI Hockey Now)

With the Boston Bruins trading for Taylor Hall just over an hour after they acquired him from the Ottawa Senators, new Bruins defenseman Mike Reilly isn’t looking to make a splash on the ice; instead, he wants to become one of the team’s dependable, two-way rearguards that every team – especially this current Bruins squad – needs this time of year. (Boston Hockey Now)

The 2021 Pittsburgh Penguins trade deadline activities probably ended before the 3 p.m Monday NHL trade deadline. When President of Hockey Operations Brian Burke hopped on Sportsnet to chat with his old colleagues, the quotes started flying, but so did Burke’s confidence in the Penguins team. Burke certainly has a way with words and knows how to command an audience. (Pittsburgh Hockey Now)

The NHL trade deadline came and went on Monday afternoon without Chuck Fletcher making much noise. Sure, the Flyers re-signed Scott Laughton and shipped out Erik Gustafsson and Michael Raffl, but neither of those trades really meant much. (Philly Hockey Now)

This may have been  Bill Zito’s first NHL Trade Deadline as general manager of the Florida Panthers, but as they say in Davie, it was not his first rodeo. He added a handful of players to his club and stuck to his plan. (Florida Hockey Now)

It wasn’t the 1,235th Avalanche game against the Arizona Coyotes this season. It only seemed like it. Hey, it’s still hockey and I’m glad we have it. But, yeah, the vibes were a bit stale for this one. Nonetheless, the Avs did what they needed to do, and got another W at Ball Arena. Final was 4-2 in front of 4,050 fans, who made a commendable job if filling the place with noise. (Colorado Hockey Now)

Max Pacioretty scored his 300th career goal as the Vegas Golden Knights scored four unanswered goals in a come-from-behind victory over the LA Kings Monday night. Pacioretty became just the 21st American-born player in NHL history to hit the 300 goal mark. (Vegas Hockey Now)

Taylor Hall doesn’t want the spotlight. There’s no question that Hall will get his share of attention after he was acquired by the Boston Bruins in a trade from the Buffalo Sabres on Monday. He will be focused on and analyzed, as his worth is evaluated through the lens of a new team and new situation. (NHL)

The Toronto Maple Leafs owed it to the players to make as many improvements as possible in order to set the stage for a deep Stanley Cup Playoff run, general manager Kyle Dubas said Monday.  By making a flurry of trades in the days leading up to the 2021 NHL Trade Deadline on Monday, including the additions of forward Nick Foligno and goalie David Rittich, the Maple Leafs did just that. (NHL)

The Vancouver Canucks had 10 players skate Monday, their first day of team activity since an outbreak of a COVID-19 variant paused their season for 11 days.
