Thomas Greiss is looking at the 2018-19 season as a fresh start.
"With new management and everything, it's going to be a fresh start for everybody," Greiss said. "A new coach is going to be interesting. I've talked to him on the phone. I'm sure he's going to change a bunch of things." John Tavares' departure is a big hole up for the Islanders, but Greiss feels the team still has plenty of talent. He is also slated to share crease with Robin Lehner, who was cut loose by Buffalo this off-season, after Jaroslav Halak left as a free agent. "[Lehner] is new to me, but we'll meet for the first time when we get to New York," Greiss said. "It's a long year. ... We'll both play hard, and whoever plays, plays." Jul 27 - 7:55 PM

Thomas Greiss stopped 36 of 39 shots in a 4-3 overtime win over the Detroit Red Wings.

Greiss will finish the season with back-to-back wins, the first time he has done that since he had five-straight in November. The German netminder had another inconsistent season playing behind an invisible defensive unit. He'll finish the season with a 13-8-2 record, a 3.82 goals-against-average and a .892 save percentage. The Islanders have him locked up for another two years at a $3.33 million cap hit.

Fortunately for the Islanders, Mathew Barzal scored the game-winner for New York. Greiss now has a 12-8-2 record with a 3.86 goals-against-average and a .891 save percentage this season. This was his first win since Feb. 16 (he missed significant time due to injury).

Thomas Greiss may be in the crease Saturday against New Jersey

Christopher Gibson started and lost Friday night and Jaroslav Halak has been feeling under the weather, so Greiss could get back in goal of the Islanders. Griess last played six weeks ago as he has been on injured reserve with a lower-body injury. We don't recommend starting Greiss after such a long layoff.
Mar 31 - 10:54 AM

Thomas Greiss (lower body) has been taken off the IR list.

Greiss last played on Feb. 16. He won't be the starter Friday night, but perhaps he'll get the nod on Saturday.
Mar 30 - 12:21 PM

Thomas Greiss (lower body) does not have a timetable for his return yet, but coach Doug Weight doesn't believe it will be "too long."

Greiss was placed on injured reserve Monday retroactive to Feb. 16. Christopher Gibson has been recalled on an emergency basis to serve as Jaroslav Halak's understudy.
Feb 19 - 11:10 AM

Thomas Greiss is day-to-day with a lower body injury.

Greiss was injured during Friday's 45-save shutout win over Carolina. "He’s pretty good," coach Doug Weight said of Greiss. "We are going to do some evaluating and make a final ruling here moving forward. We’re prepared for anything. Obviously, Bridgeport [the Islanders’ minor-league affiliate] is close, so if we need to do something for [Monday], we’ll be fine." Greiss is 11-7-2 this season with a 3.84 GAA and a .892 save percentage.
Feb 19 - 8:01 AM

Thomas Greiss (undisclosed) did not take part in Sunday's practice.

"He just tweaked something. We're going to have it looked at and make a final ruling here moving forward," coach Doug Weight said. "We're prepared for anything. Obviously Bridgeport is close so if we need to do something for tomorrow we'll be fine." Greiss posted a 45-save shutout on Friday against Carolina, but may have been hurt in the process.
Feb 18 - 12:55 PM

Thomas Greiss turned aside all 45 shots he faced in Friday's 3-0 win over the Carolina Hurricanes.

10 of Greiss' saves came while the Islanders were shorthanded. The shutout was his first of the season. It's also the first time in five games that Greiss holds the opposition to less than four goals. The win improves the Islanders netminders record to 11-7-2 with a 3.84 goals-against-average and a .892 save percentage this season. His fantasy value is limited because Jaroslav Halak appears to be the starting goaltender in Brooklyn for now.
Feb 16 - 10:13 PM
