With the No.23 Pick in the 2019 NHL Draft the New York Islanders select Simon Holmstrom.
The Islanders have signed Jordan Eberle to a five-year contract worth $27.5 million ($5.5M AAV).
In his second season with the Islanders, Eberle struggled in the regular season, posting just 37 points (19G / 18A) in 78 games but cranked it up in the playoffs. Eberle got hot in the first two rounds of the postseason, leading the Islanders with nine points (4G / 5A) in eight games. Eberle joins Andrew Ladd and Nick Leddy as players earning $5.5 AAV from the Islanders.
The Islanders have signed Arnaud Durandeau to a three-year, entry-level contract.
Durandeau was a sixth-round pick (No. 165 overall) in 2017 and just finished his fourth season with Halifax (QMJHL) where he was second on the team in goals (38) and tied for third in points (73) in 68 games.
The Islanders have signed Tanner Fritz to a two-year contract extension.
Fritz spent most of the season with Bridgeport (AHL) where he had 12 goals and 25 assists, to rank seventh on the team in points (37). Fritz has limited NHL experience, scoring three goals and five assists (eight points) in 42 career games.
The Islanders signed Brock Nelson to a six-year contract extension worth $36.0 million ($6.0M AAV).
Nelson is coming off of a career-year, having scored 25 goals and 28 assists (53 points) in 82 games. Nelson has been extremely durable, missing just two games over the last five seasons and figures to continue as the Islanders’ No.2 centre heading into the 2019-20 campaign.
Greiss is projected to start Game 4 in Carolina.
Greiss and Robin Lehner split games during the regular season but Greiss has not played during the playoffs. Lehner has not beaten the Hurricanes in seven career games, whereas Greiss was 3-1-0 with a 1.76 GAA and .949 SV% in four games this season. The 33-year-old was also 11-7-0 with a 2.20 GAA, .933 SV% and two shutouts on the road this year.
Clutterbuck (undisclosed) will be a game-time decision for Game 3.
Clutterbuck was hurt in Game 2 in Brooklyn but travel to Carolina for Game 3 and remains a game-time decision for Wednesday’s tilt. If looks like Michael Dal Colle will be in the lineup regardless of Clutterbuck’s status, so expect the rugged winger to replace Tom Kuhnhackl if he ends up playing.
Clutterbuck (undisclosed) will travel to Carolina but is questionable for Game 3.
Clutterbuck was hurt in the Islanders 2-1 loss to the Hurricanes in Game 2 and missed Tuesday’s practice. Michael Dal Colle will replace Clutterbuck in the lineup for Game 3 if he can’t play. Head coach Barry Trotz called him day-to-day, which makes him questionable for Game 3.
Boychuk is out 3-4 weeks with a lower-body injury.
Boychuk was forced to leave Game 4 in Pittsburgh with a lower-body injury and will likely miss most of the second-round against the Capitals/Hurricanes. Thomas Hickey is expected to replace Boychuk in Game 1 of the next round.
Beauvillier (undisclosed) is "probable" to play in Game 2.
Beauvillier took Thursday off but is expected to play in Game 2 as the Islanders go with the same lineup that escaped Game 1 with a 1-0 series lead. Beauvillier had one shot in 11:01 TOI in that contest.
Varlamov will start Saturday in San Jose.
