  • Islanders' Frans Nielsen: Has gone nine games without a goal

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/26/16) Nielsen hasn't scored since New Year's Eve.

    Nielsen has already scored the same amount of goals this year as last season and may even beat out his career high of 25 in 2013-14. He has become an extremely valuable member of the Islanders as his offense has quickly caught up to his defensive prowess making him possibly the best all around player on the Islanders.

    Islanders' Frans Nielsen: Tallies assist in loss

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/17/16) Nielsen tallied an assist in Sunday's loss to the Canucks.

    The Isles were on the verge of being blanked by Ryan Miller, but Nielsen helped setup the game-tying tally with under a minute to go. He also opened up the shootout, though he was unable to find the back of the net. The 31-year-old is up to 28 points through 45 games and could top the 50-point plateau for just the second time of his career.

    Islanders' Frans Nielsen: Could set a career high in goals

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/9/16) Nielsen could set a career high in goals this season and may even hit the 30 mark.

    Nielsen has been one of the more consistent Islanders on offense this season. He has always been an underrated player but mainly for his faceoff acumen and his two-way play but now he is adding goal scoring to his resume. Nielsen is someone that could still be available on your waiver wire and can help your fantasy team.

    Islanders' Frans Nielsen: Ends drought with two points

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/29/15) Nielsen snapped a six-game point drought with a goal, an assist and a plus-2 rating in Tuesday's 6-3 win over Toronto.

    Nielsen looked good en route to 22 points in the first 30 games of the season, putting him on pace for one of his finest NHL campaigns, but had fallen off in a major way recently despite continuing to play big minutes -- including on the power play. Although his productivity can be inconsistent, Nielsen's a credible source of power-play points and is already just one goal shy of matching last season's 14.

    Islanders' Frans Nielsen: Hasn't talked new contract with Islanders

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/17/15) Nielsen and the Islanders have yet to discuss a new contract, reports Newsday.

    The Islanders have quite a few roster decisions to make between a new contract for Nielsen and Kyle Okposo or possible trades of that duo and Travis Hamonic who has asked out. It's possible that general manager Garth Snow just doesn't have the time right now to worry about Nielsen. He will have to at some point however as Nielsen will be a valuable commodity on the trade market should Snow elect to go in that direction.

    Nielsen (undisclosed) will return to the lineup Thursday against the Blue Jackets.Nielsen was forced to leave Wednesday's practice with the injury, but he appeared to be fine after rejoining the team for on-ice work Thursday morning.
