Pageau has been moved to the top power-play unit for the Islanders, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

The power play for the Islanders has been horrific this season, so one, you could argue that Pageau is only getting the chance because the team has nothing to lose at this point. Pageau may also be getting the opportunity because, with Covid-19 taken forwards such as Anders Lee and Josh Bailey out of the lineup, the Islanders are running out of players with any offensive ability. It doesn't matter. The bottom line is that the Islanders have to change things up as they are 5-41 this season on the power play, which ranks 30th in the NHL.
