  • Islanders' Brock Nelson: Two-point effort Friday

    Nelson scored a goal and an assist in Friday's 2-0 win over the Red Wings.

    After collecting an assist on Anders Lee's eventual game-winner early in the second period, Nelson floated a shot from the blue line early in the third that got through traffic and eluded Magnus Hellberg. Nelson also extended his point streak to five games, a nice turnaround after he managed only one assist in his prior seven contests. The 31-year-old is now only one tally short of his seventh career 20-goal campaign.

  • Islanders' Brock Nelson: Goalless streak at 14 games

    Nelson has not lit the lamp in his last 14 games.

    Nelson does have six assists over his last 14 games but also no points of any kind in his last four contests. His struggles have coincided with the team's offense going in the tank. The Islanders have only one win in their last seven contests. In those seven games, they have only scored 11 goals. They have only scored more than two goals in two of their previous nine games. The Isles hope their game against the wide-open Sabres on Thursday will help cure some of their offensive ailments.

  • Islanders' Brock Nelson: Named to All-Star team

    Nelson was chosen for the All-Star team for the first time in his career Thursday, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

    Entering the game Thursday versus the Oilers, Nelson is the leading goal scorer for the Islanders with 15 tallies and trails Mathew Barzal for the team lead in points with 38. At this point in time, Nelson is the player representing the team, but Mathew Barzal, Ilya Sorokin, and Noah Dobson have a shot at being selected in the fan vote, which ends Jan. 17.

    Both of Nelson's points came on empty-net goals. The 31-year-old continues to be a steady source of offense with six goals and seven helpers in his last 11 outings. The center is up to 15 goals, 33 points, 96 shots on net, a plus-9 rating, 29 hits and 21 blocked shots through 32 appearances this season. His roles on the second line and first power-play unit put him in position to sustain strong scoring numbers, but he's never finished a campaign with a point-per-game pace.

  • Islanders' Brock Nelson: Secures another win

    Nelson scored a goal on two shots and went plus-3 in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Flyers.

    The Islanders swept their back-to-back following American Thanksgiving, and they have plenty of reasons to be thankful for Nelson. He scored the game-winner in each of those games, and he's now posted four such tallies this season, one shy of his mark from last year. The 31-year-old has been good in other ways as well, posting 11 goals, 11 assists, 71 shots on net and a plus-8 rating through 23 contests overall. Nelson is locked in as the second-line center, and his long-time partnership with Anders Lee has been a big part of the Islanders' success this season.

  • Islanders' Brock Nelson: Nets game-winning tally

  • Islanders' Brock Nelson: Nets ninth goal of 2022-23

    Nelson contributed a goal in Monday's 4-2 win against Ottawa.

    Nelson has only been held off the scoresheet once in his last five games. He's up to nine goals and 18 points in 17 contests. The best single season point-per-game pace in his career was 0.82, so it wouldn't be surprising to see him slow down, but he's at least a reasonable bet to surpass the 30-goal and 50-point milestones.

  • Islanders' Brock Nelson: Hot start continues

    Nelson scored twice Saturday in a 4-3 overtime win over the Blue Jackets. He fired 10 shots on goal.

    All 10 of those shots came in the first two periods. His first goal was a redirection of a Scott Mayfield slap pass at 7:27 of the second period and then his second came at the 11-minute mark when he scored from low in the right circle off a rebound. Nelson is off to his best start ever and has 17 points (eight goals, nine assists) in 16 games this season. He will invariably settle into a more Nelson-like pace, but until then you should take full advantage of his current outburst.
