Top Kieffer Bellows News

  • Flyers' Kieffer Bellows: Elevated from minors

    Bellows was recalled from AHL Lehigh Valley on Thursday.

    Bellows has yet to register a point in the NHL this season despite logging 13 games for the Islanders and Flyers. With the Phantoms, the 24-year-old winger has been significantly more productive with nine points in 11 minor-league outings. With his call-up, Bellows could be in line to suit up versus Arizona on Thursday, perhaps knocking Zack MacEwan or Patrick Brown from the lineup.

  • Flyers' Kieffer Bellows: Heads back to AHL

    Bellows was reassigned to AHL Lehigh Valley following Saturday's 6-3 loss to the Rangers, Sam Carchidi of Philly Hockey Now reports.

    Bellows blocked two shots and went minus-1 in 10:09 of ice time in his lone appearance during this stint with the big club. The forward will likely continue to be available as an organizational depth option in the minors.

  • Flyers' Kieffer Bellows: Recalled from AHL

    Bellows was recalled from AHL Lehigh Valley Saturday, per Adam Kimelman of NHL.com.

  • Flyers' Kieffer Bellows: Put on waivers

    Bellows was placed on waivers by Philadelphia on Thursday, per Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet.

    Philadelphia claimed Bellows off waivers from the Islanders on Oct. 27. He has no points, three blocks and 30 hits in 12 games this season while averaging 11:37 of ice time. If Bellows clears waivers this time, he will likely be sent to the AHL.

  • Flyers' Kieffer Bellows: Claimed by Flyers

    Philadelphia claimed Bellows off waivers from the Islanders on Thursday, per TSN's Chris Johnston.

    Bellows logged just 7:16 of ice time in a 3-1 loss to Florida on Oct. 13 and hasn't played since. He didn't develop as the Islanders hoped, but he was taken with the No. 19 pick in the 2016 Draft and he's still just 24, so there's some hope that a change of scenery will do him some good. At the least, this is an opportunity for him to play regularly, though he'll probably start in a bottom-six role.

  • Islanders' Kieffer Bellows: Placed on waivers

    Bellows was waived by the Islanders on Wednesday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

    Bellows logged 7:16 of ice time in a 3-1 loss to Florida on Oct. 13, but he hasn't been in the lineup since. If he clears waivers, he should be sent to the AHL.

  • Islanders' Kieffer Bellows: Healthy scratch Saturday

    Bellows was a healthy scratch Saturday as the Islanders took on the Ducks, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

    It seems Bellows may have only played in the season opener Thursday because Oliver Wahlstrom (upper body) wasn't able to play. Wahlstrom is back in the lineup Saturday, which has relegated Bellows to the bench. Bellows should get a chance to play again but may need an injury or poor play from another forward to do so.

  • Islanders' Kieffer Bellows: Snags one-year pact

    Bellows signed a one-year, $1.2 million contract with the Islanders on Monday.

    Despite playing in just 45 games, Bellows still managed to establish new personal bests last year in goals (six), assists (13) and power-play points (four). While Bellows is unlikely to jump right into a top-six role, he should see an uptick in both games and minutes this season, which should set him up well to potentially top the 20-point mark for the first time in his three-year NHL career.

  • Islanders' Kieffer Bellows: Needs improvement

    Bellows finished the season with six goals, 19 points and a minus-1 rating in 45 games.

    Bellows hasn't been the player the Islanders hoped for since they drafted him in the first round, 19th overall, of the 2016 NHL Entry Draft. Bellows has only 11 career goals in 67 games. If he remains with the Islanders next season, he will likely once again find himself as a spare part, needing an injury or two to get into the lineup on a regular basis.

  • Islanders' Kieffer Bellows: Draws assist

    Bellows logged an assist, six hits and two blocked shots in Friday's 3-0 win over the Canadiens.

    Bellows missed time with an illness and as a healthy scratch to begin April, but he's now played in consecutive games. He helped out on Zach Parise's opening tally Friday. Bellows had gone 10 games without a point prior to this contest, and he's posted four goals, 10 assists, 62 shots on net, 84 hits and an even plus-minus rating in 37 outings. He'll likely be limited to bottom-six minutes if he can retain a regular role in the lineup.

  • Islanders' Kieffer Bellows: Stepping back into lineup

    Bellows (illness) will retake his place in the lineup against Pittsburgh on Thursday, Wes Crosby of NHL.com reports.

    Even prior to his illness, Bellow was a healthy scratch for five straight matchups, so his hold on a lineup spot should be considered tenuous at best. Even when he has played, the 23-year-old Minnesota native has struggled to produce, as he is mired in a nine-game pointless steak. As such, fantasy players shouldn't be expecting much out of Bellows down the stretch.

  • Islanders' Kieffer Bellows: Dealing with illness

    Bellows (illness) won't play Tuesday versus the Penguins, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

    Bellows has often been a healthy scratch anyways, so this won't make much of a difference for fantasy managers. The 23-year-old will be out of the lineup for his sixth straight game Tuesday, though a return to practice or warmups down the line will indicate he's cleared his illness.

  • Islanders' Kieffer Bellows: Healthy scratch for five straight

    Bellows was a healthy scratch for the fifth straight game as the Islanders lost to the Blues 6-1 on Saturday.

    Bellows was expected to play Saturday as the Islanders needed an extra forward with Casey Cizikas serving a one-game suspension. However, the Islanders instead elected to recall Andy Andreoff from the AHL for that spot. This was likely because coach Barry Trotz preferred to use a center rather than a wing to fill in for the suspended pivot. Bellows' next chance to play will come Tuesday against the Penguins.

  • Islanders' Kieffer Bellows: Expected to play Thursday

    Bellows is expected to draw into the lineup against the Red Wings on Thursday, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

    Bellows will play on the fourth line with Casey Cizikas and Matt Martin now that Cal Clutterbuck has been lost for the season due to shoulder surgery. Bellows has four goals and nine assists in 32 games in 2021-22.

  • Islanders' Kieffer Bellows: Healthy scratch once again

    Bellows will be a healthy scratch for the second straight game when the Islanders take on the Capitals on Tuesday, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

    This absence will mean that Bellows has now been a healthy scratch for three of the past four games for the Islanders. Before this recent stretch, the Islanders did seem to give him a chance to play as they played Bellows in 10 straight games, but he only had one goal and three assists in those games. Bellows will likely need a forward or two to be dealt by the trade deadline on Monday to see consistent time with the Islanders this season, and he may be best suited for a change of scenery in the future.

  • Islanders' Kieffer Bellows: Scoreless in four straight

    Bellows has failed to register a point in his last four games.

    Bellows is getting another extended run of playing time for the Islanders, as he has played in 10 straight games, but he only has one goal and three assists in those contests.

  • Islanders' Kieffer Bellows: Tallies on breakaway

    Bellows scored a goal on three shots and added three hits in Sunday's 4-0 win over the Ducks.

    Bellows scored with 4:54 left in the contest. He's earned a goal and three assists in his last six games, which corresponds with him becoming a regular middle-six presence in the lineup. The 23-year-old winger is up to four goals, 13 points, 47 shots on net, 59 hits and a plus-3 rating through 26 outings.

  • Islanders' Kieffer Bellows: Chips in with assist

    Bellows notched an assist, three shots on goal and three hits in Thursday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Sharks.

    Bellows has responded well to an everyday role in the lineup, as he's picked up an assist in three of the last four games. The winger has added 12 shots on goal and 12 hits in that span, playing mainly in a middle-six capacity. Bellows has 12 points, 41 shots, 55 hits and a plus-3 rating in 24 contests overall, but he'll need to stay productive to avoid getting scratched in favor of Josh Bailey.

  • Islanders' Kieffer Bellows: Draws back in Thursday

    Bellows will likely be given a chance to be an every-day player and is in the lineup Thursday against Boston, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

    Coach Barry Trotz inserted Bellows into the game Thursday because Josh Bailey is out due to an upper-body injury. Trotz also stated that he believes Bellows is ready to take on a full-time role with the team. In the Islanders' 4-1 victory over the Bruins, Bellows had an assist, five shots on goals and a plus-1 rating in just under 15 minutes of ice time.

  • Islanders' Kieffer Bellows: Healthy scratch for five straight

    Bellows was a healthy scratch once again as the Islanders defeated the Canucks 6-3 on Wednesday.

    It wasn't a good sign for those that want to see Bellows play as Ross Johnston was started over him against the Canucks. Bellows only has three goals and six assists in 20 games for the Islanders this season, so it's not like he is forcing the hand of coach Barry Trotz. Right now, Trotz prefers the physicality of Johnston over the skill of Bellows.
