  • Islanders' Brock Nelson: Two points against Pens

    Nelson delivered a goal and an assist in Tuesday's 5-4 overtime win over the Penguins.

    The 32-year-old center opened the scoring for the Islanders, breaking through the Pittsburgh defense and flipping a backhand past Alex Nedeljkovic early in the second period. Nelson has produced two straight multi-point performances, and over the last 11 games he's racked up five goals and 10 points. With 24 goals in 55 contests on the season, Nelson is on pace to reach 35 tallies for the third straight campaign.

  • Islanders' Brock Nelson: Two points Sunday

    Nelson scored an even-strength goal and added a power-play assist in Sunday's 6-5 overtime loss to the Rangers.

    Both points came in the first period, helping the Islanders build an early 4-1 lead that slipped away. It's Nelson's first multi-point performance in over a month, but he's been getting onto the scoresheet consistently of late, picking up four goals and eight points over the last 10 games.

  • Islanders' Brock Nelson: Assists in consecutive contests

    Nelson notched an assist and six shots on goal in Thursday's 6-2 win over the Lightning.

    Nelson has a helper in each of the Islanders' first two games following the All-Star break. The 32-year-old center put up a solid eight points over 13 games in January and should continue to provide decent secondary offense for fantasy managers. He's at 40 points, 163 shots and a minus-8 rating through 51 appearances this season, mainly in a second-line role.

  • Islanders' Brock Nelson: Generates helper in win

    Nelson logged an assist, two hits and a plus-2 rating in Monday's 3-2 win over the Maple Leafs.

    Nelson set up Pierre Engvall for the game-winning goal with 2:02 left in the third period. Prior to the All-Star break, Nelson had three points and a minus-5 rating over his previous nine outings. The 32-year-old center has put together a solid season so far with 21 goals, 18 helpers, 157 shots on net and a minus-9 rating over 50 appearances. He's off the pace that saw him record 75 points a season ago, but this is still tracking as his second-most productive campaign.

  • Islanders' Brock Nelson: Notches 20th goal

Nelson ended up with a plus-1 rating, five shots on goal while winning seven of his 13 faceoff opportunities in 17:42 of ice time. The 32-year-old Minnesotan has reached the 20-goal plateau in three straight seasons while going for 20 or more goals in eight of his 11 NHL campaigns.

  • Islanders' Brock Nelson: Two goals in defeat

    Nelson tallied a pair of goals in Tuesday's 5-2 loss to Vancouver.

    Nelson accounted for the entirety of New York's offense in the loss, notching a power-play marker in the second period before cutting the Islanders' deficit to 4-2 with a second tally in the third.

  • Islanders' Brock Nelson: Gets two points vs. Avalanche

    Nelson collected a goal and an assist in a 5-4 overtime loss to Colorado on Tuesday.

    Nelson's marker came on the power play late in the first period to put the Islanders ahead 2-1. After having a remarkable stretch from Dec. 2-23 in which he provided six goals and 14 points in 11 contests, Nelson finished the month with a three-game scoring drought. However, the 32-year-old forward is starting 2024 off on a strong note and is having a great campaign overall with 17 goals and 32 points through 37 outings.

  • Islanders' Brock Nelson: Four-game, seven-point streak

    Nelson scored twice in a 5-3 loss to Montreal on Saturday.

    Nelson kicked off a third-period comeback for the Isles with a shorthanded snipe at 2:07 of the frame. He put it through the wickets of goalie Sam Montembeault. Then 1:36 later, Nelson tapped the puck in from the right edge on a cross-crease pass. The goals stretched his point streak to four games and seven points, including four goals. Nelson is up to 27 points, including 15 goals, in 30 games. His career goal mark is 37, which was set in 2021-22, but this pace would get him his first 40-goal season.

  • Islanders' Brock Nelson: December surge continues

    Nelson collected a goal and an assist, both on the power play, in Friday's 5-4 shootout loss to the Bruins.

    The two teams combined for five straight power-play goals between the second and third periods, and Nelson delivered both his points in the latter frame. The 32-year-old has three multi-point performances in seven games to kick off December, racking up three goals and nine points over that stretch -- including two tallies and three helpers on the man advantage. Nelson remains on track to top 35 goals for the third straight season, having lit the lamp 13 times in 29 contests.

  • Islanders' Brock Nelson: Adds two points Monday

    Nelson notched a goal and an assist in Monday's 4-3 overtime win over Toronto.

    Nelson got the Islanders on the board midway through the first period, firing a turnaround wrist shot past Ilya Samsonov to tie the game 1-1. Nelson would add an assist in the second on a Kyle Palmieri goal. The 32-year-old center has been productive of late, tallying six points (two goals, four assists) over his last five contests. Nelson now has 12 goals and 10 assists through 27 games this year.

  • Islanders' Brock Nelson: First points in four games

    Nelson had two assists in a 4-3 win over the Panthers on Saturday.

    Both were secondary assists. The first came on Anders Lee's power-play marker in the first, and his second was on Pierre Engvall's second-period wrister that put the Isles up 2-1. The helpers were Nelson's first in four games, and first since a five-game, eight-point streak that started in the middle of November. He's slightly off his career 75-point pace from last season, but he is on pace for his third straight 30-plus goal campaign. Nelson is among the league's most underrated performers.

  • Islanders' Brock Nelson: Pushes point streak to five games

    Nelson picked up two assists in Friday's 5-3 road win against the Senators.

    One of Nelson's helpers came on a power-play goal for Mathew Barzal midway through the second period. Nelson ended up with three shots on goal, one blocked shot and one hit in 16:38 of ice time. He also won just two of his six faceoff attempts. Nelson has picked up four goals and four assists during his five-game point streak. He'll look to extend the streak Saturday against the visiting Flyers.

  • Islanders' Brock Nelson: Four-game, six-point streak

    Nelson scored two goals in a 3-2 win over the Flyers on Wednesday.

    Nelson scored the Isles' second goal at 13:10 of the second period when he redirected a point shot past Carter Hart. He tapped in a backdoor pass from Pierre Engvall at 2:33 of the third that stood as the winner. Don't look now, but Nelson is on a four-game, six-point streak that includes four goals. Overall, he has 10 goals and 14 points, and at this pace, Nelson could deliver his first 40-goal campaign.

  • Islanders' Brock Nelson: Big jump in shots, goals

    Nelson had a goal and an assist in a 5-4 shootout win over the Flames on Saturday.

    He's on a three-game, four-point streak (two goals, two assists). Nelson is far off his career pace of 75 points, which he set last season. But he has become a shooting machine, piling up 62 over 17 games, and that's translated into eight goals. Nelson's shooting percentage (12.9) is actually lower than his career average of 14.4, so theoretically, he should have a couple more snipes in him.

  • Islanders' Brock Nelson: Strikes on power play

    Nelson scored a power-play goal on three shots in Wednesday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Canucks.

    Nelson put the Islanders ahead 2-0 in the first period with his seventh goal of the season. However, the 32-year-old center has slowed down a bit with two tallies over his last six games. For the season, he's at nine points (two on the power play), 56 shots and a minus-5 rating through 15 contests.

  • Islanders' Brock Nelson: Another two-point game

    Nelson had a goal and an assist in a 3-0 win over Washington on Thursday.

    Nelson went five-hole from the bottom of the left circle on the rush at 11:15 of the third period. He has five goals on the season, but the assist was his first since Opening Night. Nelson is a classic late bloomer -- now 32, his best play has come since his 30th birthday. In the last two seasons, he put up 73 goals and 61 assists (154 games) and appears poised to hover around that type of production in 2023-24.

  • Islanders' Brock Nelson: Contributes goal in loss

    Nelson tallied a goal in a 4-3 overtime loss to Detroit on Monday.

    Nelson brought his four-game scoring drought to an end. He has four goals and five points in eight contests this year. That's not bad, though his current offensive pace is behind last year, when he recorded 75 points in 82 outings. That was by far the 32-year-old's best campaign -- his next highest point total in 59 in 2021-22 -- and it wouldn't be surprising if he finishes shy of his career high this season.

  • Islanders' Brock Nelson: Posts pair of goals in OT loss

    Nelson scored a pair of goals in Friday's 5-4 overtime loss against the Devils.

He has a pair of multi-point performances in three games to date, including a goal and an assist against Buffalo last Saturday. He'll see if he can do it again versus the Sabres on the road Saturday.
