  • Islanders' Alexander Romanov: Slides helper Saturday

    Romanov notched an assist, four blocked shots, two PIM and a plus-2 rating in Saturday's 4-1 win over the Sharks.

    Romanov set up Zach Parise's insurance goal in the third period. While Romanov has a modest three assists through seven games in March, he's added a plus-6 rating for the month. The 23-year-old defenseman is up to 21 points, a plus-11 rating, 92 shots on goal, 181 hits and 120 blocked shots through 70 outings overall, chipping in solid offense with his usual physical play.

  • Islanders' Alexander Romanov: Finding his game

    Romanov has a rating of plus-7 over his last six games.

    On the season, Romanov has two goals, 20 points and a rating of plus-8 in 67 games. It seems unlikely that he will ever be an offensive force, but the Isles knew that when they traded a first-round pick to the Canadiens for his services. Whether or not the 23-year-old will be worth that pick is up for debate, but the team will hope his defensive game keeps maturing, and that Romanov might improve offensively as he gains more experience.

  • Islanders' Alexander Romanov: Scores in win

    Romanov logged a goal, two shots and three hits in Sunday's 4-0 win over the Jets.

    Romanov extended the Islanders' lead to 2-0 in the second period, firing a slapshot off the glove of David Rittich. It's Romanov's second goal of the season and his first since Dec. 22. He's up to 18 points through 62 games. While his offensive production is limited, Romanov has provided a physical presence on New York's blue line with 161 hits and 105 blocked shots.

  • Islanders' Alexander Romanov: Makes presence felt in win

    Romanov contributed an assist, a blocked shot and four hits in Friday's 5-4 win over the Penguins.

    Romanov is up to 100 blocked shots and 144 hits this season, as the second-pairing defenseman continues to mash and play fearlessly. He's also teased offensive potential based on a goal and 17 helpers through 58 games. The Isles don't use Romanov on the power play, though.

  • Islanders' Alexander Romanov: Back at practice Thursday

    Romanov (personal) is back at practice Thursday, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

    Romanov missed Tuesday's contest versus Seattle, the first game he has missed this season. He has a goal and 14 assists in 53 games this season with 132 hits and 98 blocked shots. Romanov should be good to go Thursday when the Islanders face Vancouver.

  • Islanders' Alexander Romanov: Unavailable Tuesday

    Romanov (personal) won't play Tuesday versus the Kraken.

    Romanov's absence will open up a chance for Samuel Bolduc or Parker Wotherspoon to draw into the lineup. It's unclear if Romanov's absence will keep him out of the lineup for Thursday's game versus the Canucks.

  • Islanders' Alexander Romanov: One goal in 52 games this season

    Romanov has one goal, 14 assists and a plus-6 rating in 52 games this season.

    General manager Lou Lamoriello giving up a first-round pick for those numbers is getting harder and harder to justify. Romanov may have a future as a top-three defender, but he certainly isn't there yet and offers little to no fantasy value.

  • Islanders' Alexander Romanov: Pockets helper

    Romanov notched an assist, four hits and four PIM in Monday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Capitals.

    This was Romanov's third assist through eight games in January. The 23-year-old blueliner can chip in a bit of offense, but he primarily relies on physicality to make an impact. For the season, he's at a career-high 15 points with 57 shots on net, 112 hits, 83 blocked shots, 29 PIM and a plus-8 rating through 45 contests.

  • Islanders' Alexander Romanov: Adds helper in win

    Romanov notched an assist and went plus-2 in Tuesday's 6-2 win over the Canucks.

    Romanov's helper was technically a shorthanded point, as he set up Jean-Gabriel Pageau for an empty-netter on the penalty kill. This was Romanov's first shorthanded point in his career. The 22-year-old defenseman has 13 points in 39 contests this season, matching his scoring output from 79 outings last season. He's added 52 shots on net, 97 hits, 76 blocked shots and a plus-9 rating in 2022-23 while playing in a top-four role. He's picked up a goal and four helpers over his last six outings.

  • Islanders' Alexander Romanov: Logs two points in loss

    Romanov picked up a goal, his first of the season, and an assist in Thursday's 5-2 loss to the Rangers.

    Romanov picked up an assist on Anders Lee's opening tally in the first period before scoring his first goal of the season, firing a slapshot through traffic to give the Islanders a 3-2 lead in the second. The 22-year-old defenseman now has a goal and nine assists through 34 games this season while providing a physical presence with 89 hits and 72 blocked shots.

  • Islanders' Alexander Romanov: Good to play Saturday

    Romanov (groin) is set to play Saturday against Vegas, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

    Romanov exited Friday's game versus Arizona after blocking a shot. He has eight assists in 31 games while averaging 20:08 of ice time this season. He's projected to serve on a pairing with Scott Mayfield on Saturday.

  • Islanders' Alexander Romanov: Leaves game early

    Romanov was forced to leave Friday's loss to the Coyotes late in the third period due to a groin injury, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

    Romanov had to exit the contest after blocking a shot. He did skate off under his own power, so there's still hope he'll be able to play Saturday versus the Golden Knights. If he can't play, the Islanders could be in a bit of trouble, as they only took six defenders on their road trip.

  • Islanders' Alexander Romanov: Plays all-around game

    Romanov was credited with a pair of assists, five shots and three hits during a 6-4 victory over the host Devils on Friday.

    Romanov, who entered Friday with 25 points in 160 career games, secured his first multi-point game of the season in the first period alone. The 2018 second-round draft pick earned assists on goals by Brock Nelson and Anders Lee. These were Romanov's first points in nine outings. Romanov's last two-point effort developed against the Kraken on March 12.

  • Islanders' Alexander Romanov: Scoreless in eight straight

    Romanov was scoreless once again as the Islanders lost to the Blues 7-4 on Tuesday.

    That makes eight straight games that Romanov has failed to put up a crooked number on the scoresheet. Romanov was also a minus-3 in the loss Tuesday but overall has a rating of plus-3 in 27 games this season.

  • Islanders' Alexander Romanov: Yet to join the party

    Romanov has yet to score a goal in 23 games this season.

    Romanov only had four goals in 156 career games entering this season, so it's not any shock that he isn't lighting the lamp on any consistent basis. What might be a shock to most, however, is that the Islanders were leading the league coming into Tuesday in goals from defensemen with 18. Romanov seems likely to add to that total sooner or later, as he does have 31 shots on net this season.

  • Islanders' Alexander Romanov: Goal drought continues

    Romanov has yet to score a goal in 17 games for his new team this season.

    In this past year's draft, the Islanders gave up their first-round pick to acquire Romanov. He has provided the type of defense they were hoping for, as his rating of plus-7 attests to, but he only has four assists in those 17 games. This shouldn't come as a surprise to the Islanders, as Romanov only had three goals and 10 assists in 79 games for the Canadiens last season.

  • Islanders' Alexander Romanov: Apples in consecutive games

    Romanov has recorded an assist in each of his last two games.

    Romanov was acquired by the Islanders from the Canadiens for a first-round pick last summer. He's not expected to post big offensive numbers but rather to be a steady defender who can help limit the opposing team's top players. In addition to those two helpers, Romanov has four PIM, 16 shots, 20 hits and 28 blocked shots in nine games.

  • Islanders' Alexander Romanov: Getting in front of pucks

    Romanov leads the team in blocked shots this season with 19 through four games.

    Romanov was a controversial acquisition by the Islanders, as it cost them a first-round pick in this past year's draft. Romanov is a physical defenseman, as evidenced by those blocked shots and the 11 hits he handed out in the early going this season. Offensively, he is still a work in progress, as he has yet to register a point and only had 13 in 79 games for the Canadiens last season.

  • Islanders' Alexander Romanov: Receives fine for charging

    Romanov was fined $5,000 on Sunday for charging Rangers forward Vincent Trocheck.

    The incident occurred in Saturday's preseason contest and it earned Romanov a two-minute penalty on the play. The fine is the maximum allowable under the terms of the CBA. Romanov registered three goals, 13 points, 107 shots on net, 144 blocks and 227 hits in 79 games last season with the Canadiens. He will play in his first year as a member of the Islanders in 2022-23 following an offseason trade.

  • Islanders' Alexander Romanov: Inks three-year contract

    Romanov penned a three-year, $7.5 million deal with the Islanders on Monday.

    With the Habs last season, Romanov tallied three goals, 10 assists and 107 shots while averaging 20:24 of ice time in his second NHL campaign. After being acquired by New York in an offseason trade, the 22-year-old defenseman should get plenty of opportunities, including potentially linking up with fellow youngster Noah Dobson on the Isles' second pairing. If Romanov does see increased minutes and possibly a power-play role, he could be in line to challenge for the 20-point threshold.
