    Islanders' Brock Nelson: Reaches 20-goal mark again

    Nelson hit the 20-goal mark for the second consecutive season Tuesday, scoring late in the second period of a 5-3 win over Minnesota. Nelson bookended the All-Star break with goals, and he continues to be one of the brightest spots for an Islanders team that's been surprisingly unproductive on offense this year. He's now tied last year's goal total, meaning every puck Nelson puts behind a netminder for the rest of the year will be part of a career-high mark.

    Islanders' Brock Nelson: Leads Isles in goals

    Nelson leads the Islanders in goals so far this season with 18. With John Tavares struggling this season Nelson has helped keep the Islanders afloat with what is quickly becoming his best season to date. Much of the credit for his success is being given to his wrist shot. It seems it's harder and heavier than goalies expect it to be, thus catching them off guard.

    Islanders' Brock Nelson: Busts out with hat trick, helper

    Nelson punished the Blue Jackets with three goals (the last of which came into an empty net) and an assist despite playing just 14:14 in Tuesday's 5-2 victory. Nelson had failed to put together a multi-point effort in the last 22 games, and he notched just nine points and a minus-8 rating in that span. But we finally saw the Nelson who was widely expected to build on last year's 20-goal, 42-point effort. Still, that ice time has been pretty typical for him lately, and as long as that remains the case, it's going to be hard for Nelson to string together big games like this.

    Islanders' Brock Nelson: Scores goal Thursday

    Nelson rifled one short side in Thursday's disappointing 4-1 loss to Washington. Nelson has been a nightmare for opposing netminders recently, scoring five goals in his last 10 contests. The 24-year-old is on pace to shatter his previous career high goal total, netting 14 scores in 41 games this season.

    Islanders' Brock Nelson: Scores power-play goal Monday

    Nelson scored his first power-play goal of the season in Monday's shootout win over the Flyers. Nelson is averaging over a minute and a half of ice time with the extra attacker this season and finally has something to show for it. Its been a difficult few weeks for the 24-year-old, recording only two points in his last nine games after starting the month of November averaging a point per game.

    Islanders' Brock Nelson: Extends goal streak

    Nelson scored two goals in Friday's 5-3 loss to Montreal to extend his streak to four games. His two-goal effort gives him five goals in his past four games as he continues his ascension on the Islanders' depth chart. A first-round pick from 2010, Nelson broke out with 20 goals last season, and with six goals in 19 games already, should be able to set a new career-high easily. He's got tremendous upside and certainly a player to watch on the waiver wire, if fantasy owners don't own him already.

    Islanders' Brock Nelson: Goals in three straight games

    Nelson scored a goal for the third game in a row and pitched in an assist in Monday's 5-2 win over the Coyotes. Nelson has been skating on the top line with John Tavares recently, so it's no coincidence that he's now riding a three-game goal streak and four-game point streak -- a span in which he's collected six points. The 24-year-old now has 12 points in 19 contests this season and is an integral piece of the talented young forward group that supports John Tavares and Kyle Okposo in Brooklyn.

    Islanders' Brock Nelson: Two goals and two assists to start season

    Nelson has tallied two goals and picked up two assists for the Islanders within their first five games. Nelson is off to a strong start this campaign after coming off a career-best, 20-goal 2014-15 season. The right wing has recorded a point in four of the five games he's played in this season and could continue to see opportunities when New York faces Columbus on Tuesday.

    Analysis: After the two sides failed to gain much traction in negotiations throughout the summer, Brock Nelson and the Islanders finally came to terms before Thursday's 7 a.m. ET deadline, when the winger would have needed to report for a pre-training camp physical in order to be eligible to play for the Islanders this season. The 23-year-old is coming off a career-best 20-goal season in 2014-15, and is expected to claim a spot in the team's top-six ranks during training camp.
  • Nelson, Islanders Still At An Impasse

    News: Brock Nelson and the Islanders have yet to come to terms on a contract for the 2015-16 season, Newsday's Arthur Staple reports.
    Analysis: Brock Nelson and the Panthers' Jonathan Huberdeau are the most prominent of the NHL's dwindling list of still-unsigned restricted free agents, but both players are expected to reach agreements with their new clubs before training camp concludes. Nelson appears to be seeking a long-term contract on the heels of a 20-goal, 42-point season, but with no arbitration rights, he's had a tough time negotiating with the Islanders. The team appears to be unwilling to offer him much more than a two-year deal at this point, which might be what Nelson ultimately settles on.
