  • Nelson (upper body) will be in the lineup for Thursday's game against Winnipeg. The former University of North Dakota standout missed the Isles' last game, a 3-2 win over Carolina on Tuesday. After potting 26 goals in 2015-16, Nelson has seen a dip in production, netting just 16 goals in 68 games this season. That said, Nelson scored a goal in two of his last three games before being injured, and he'll be centering a promising line with Andrew Ladd and Josh Ho-Sang on the wings.

  • Nelson (upper body) will not play in Carolina on Tuesday. The 2010 first-round pick may not be performing to his perceived ceiling, but Nelson's still on pace to set a career high in points. He's only clocking 15:40 of ice time per game this season, but his power-play presence helps add to his value. The 25-year-old forward will get his next opportunity to play Thursday against Winnipeg.

  • Nelson's 15th goal of the season Thursday against Vancouver now gives him three points in four games. It's been a trying season for Nelson, who was expected to take yet another step in his development after scoring a career-high 26 goals last year. The former first-round pick was always considered a project and needed some time to adjust to the NHL, but has not lived up to expectations, especially with the Islanders losing key players Kyle Okposo and Frans Nielsen. Fantasy owners who drafted Nelson looking for a breakout season have surely been disappointed, and perhaps most concerning is his lack of production on the power play, with just 11 points with the man advantage over the past two seasons. At best, Nelson is a depth fantasy player who can be employed only in certain scenarios.

  • Islanders' Brock Nelson: Awakening from slump
    By RotoWire Staff

    Nelson handed out a pair of assists in Thursday's 3-0 win over Montreal. One came on an empty-netter, but Nelson will certainly take it, as this marks Nelson's first multi-point effort since Feb. 6 against the Leafs; he managed just two points over eight games in between. Even so, with 22 games left on the schedule, Nelson needs only eight points to match his career-high 42, set two seasons ago.

  • Nelson scored two goals (including the game-winning goal in overtime) and added an assist against Toronto on Monday. After going pointless in nine consecutive games, Nelson has heated up of late with four goals, three assists and 16 shots over his past six contests. The 25-year-old forward is on track for a career high in points, but he'll have a tough time matching last season's 26 goals. He's a fringe asset in most fantasy settings and is likely best left to deep seasonal leagues.
