Trotz: Kieffer Bellows in ‘Waiting Pattern’ to Get Back into Islanders Lineup | NYHN+

Kieffer Bellows

The youth movement appears to be in full swing on Long Island. While the likes of Oliver Wahlstrom, Noah Dobson and Michael Dal Colle have thrived recently, Kieffer Bellows has remained conspicuously absent from the lineup.

After appearing in seven of the New York Islanders’ first eight games of the year, Bellows has appeared in just one game since the calendar Jan. 30. And in his lone appearance on Feb. 18 against the Pittsburgh Penguins, the 22-year-old had a rough night on the ice playing just 7:29 of the game and getting beat by Jason Zucker on Pittsburgh’s third goal of the night.

Bellows was a minus-2 on the night and saw just two shifts in the final frame of the game. Islanders head coach Barry Trotz didn’t let Bellows off the hook that night and he hasn’t put him back in the lineup since.
