The New York Islanders have released Kyle MacLean from his amateur tryout.

MacLean will return to the Oshawa Generals of the OHL where he had 10 goals and 28 points last season in 44 games. The undrafted winger is 19.

The New York Islanders have sent Scott Eansor to the minors.

Eansor had 16 goals and 22 points in the AHL last season. Also sent to the minors were Chris Bourque, Ryan Bourque, Matthew Gaudreau, Ryan Hitchcock, Connor Jones, Otto Koivula, Ivan Kosorenkov, Jeff Kubiak, Yanick Turcotte, Mike Cornell, Ryan MacKinnon, Tyler Mueller, David Quenneville, Yannick Rathgeb, Mitch Vande Sompel, Evan Buitenhuis and Mitch Gillam.

Andrew Ladd (tightness) missed his sixth straight day of practice.

It's looking like Ladd could miss the start of the season if he is not back on the ice soon. The winger has been a disappointment to Islander fans since his signing two seasons ago as he has had 31 and 29 point campaigns for New York. Look for a 30-40 point season this year from Ladd.

Anthony Beauvillier scored a couple of goals during Saturday’s 5-2 preseason win over the New York Rangers.

Beauvillier’s first goal was a shot through traffic while his second came in off the rush. He played tonight’s game alongside Mathew Barzal and Josh Bailey and can hold fantasy value as long as he’s alongside Barzal. Anders Lee, Ryan Pulock and Josh Bailey also scored in the win. Beauvillier is shaping into a fantasy sleeper and his situation going into the tail end of camp should be closely monitored.

Casey Bailey has signed a contract with HC Slovan Bratislava of the KHL.

The 26-year-old had 18 goals and 41 points in 76 games in the AHL last season. He picked up one goal in 13 NHL games with Toronto and Ottawa.
Sep 22 - 3:30 PM

Ryan Pulock scored the game-winning goal in Friday night's 3-2 OT win over the Philadelphia Flyers.

Pulock scored a power-play goal just one minute into overtime. The 23-year-old was productive in his first full NHL season last year, as he had 10 goals and 32 points in 68 contests last season. Pulock could hit the 40-point mark in 2018-19. Jan Kovar and Ross Johnston also found the back of the net for the Islanders in this one.
Sep 21 - 9:44 PM

Brock Nelson's linemates for Thursday's exhibition contest were Anders Lee and Jordan Eberle.

Nelson has also skated alongside Anders Lee and Josh Bailey during training camp. He's being tested as the Islanders' second line center in response to John Tavares' departure over the summer. "I think that Brock is the natural guy to go there," Islanders coach Barry Trotz said. "He has the ability, he has the experience in the league, now it’s up to him to go up there." It's a big opportunity for Nelson, who had 19 goals and 35 points in 82 games in 2017-18.
Sep 21 - 10:40 AM

Kieffer Bellows found the back of the net during Thursday's 2-0 preseason win over the New Jersey Devils.

This goal was scored on the power play. Bellows has now found the back of the net twice during the exhibition season. The 20-year-old had 41 goals and 74 points in 56 games with WHL Portland last season. It wouldn't be surprising to see Bellows start his first full professional season in the minors, but he could also get an extended look at the NHL level if he keeps producing. Anders Lee also scored for the Islanders in their victory on Thursday night.
Sep 20 - 9:56 PM

Islanders coach Barry Trotz reiterated that Andrew Ladd (tightness) is day-to-day.

Ladd was off the ice for a fourth straight day on Wednesday. Trotz said that Ladd won't resume skating until he's 100%, which makes sense given that this is still just the preseason.
Sep 20 - 4:18 PM

Andrew Ladd (tightness) wasn't on the ice with the Islanders on Wednesday.

Ladd has now missed four straight days of practices. It's still entirely possible that the Islanders are exercising an abundance of caution given that this is just training camp, but his continued absence is also starting to get concerning. Regardless, he still should be considered day-to-day.
Sep 20 - 1:39 PM

Robin Lehner stopped 18 of 22 Flyers shots in a 5-1 loss on Tuesday.

It was Lehner's second preseason game with the Islanders. He stopped the eight shots he faced over 29:29 minutes in his first outing. Of course, we wouldn't read too much into exhibition results, but Lehner's showings are perhaps a little more noteworthy than others given that he's competing for the starting gig with Thomas Greiss.
Sep 19 - 11:58 AM

Matt Martin has been reunited with Casey Cizikas and Cal Clutterbuck at training camp.

The trio has seen preseason action together as well. "With the Cizikas line, it's been effective, it's been hard to play against physically," coach Barry Trotz said. "They've been responsible defensively and no one wants to play against them. A lot of people said that was the best fourth line in the NHL for a while. They had an identity and they thrived on that." Martin spent the last two seasons with Toronto, but it was expected that he would be back on the Islanders' fourth line this campaign.
Sep 19 - 11:29 AM

David Quenneville scored in Tuesday's 5-1 preseason loss to the Philadelphia Flyers.

Quenneville took a feed from Nick Leddy and let one rip in behind Anthony Stolarz for the only goal of the game by the Islanders. Quenneville was a seventh round pick back in 2016 by the Islanders and will turn pro for the first time this season. He is expected to start the season in Bridgeport with New York's AHL squad.
Sep 18 - 10:16 PM

Andrew Ladd did not skate again on Tuesday.

Ladd has been off the ice for three straight days because of tightness. Consider him day-to-day for now.
