Pageau produced an assist, two shots on goal, four hits and two blocked shots in Sunday's 2-0 win over the Golden Knights. Pageau set up Josh Bailey at 2:16 of the first period, and that was ultimately all the Islanders needed to win. The 28-year-old Pageau has been a little quiet with two helpers in five games so far. The veteran center has added 14 shots, 10 hits and a plus-1 rating, and his third-line role is likely to limit his appeal to deeper fantasy formats and those that reward physical play.
Pageau (illness) was skating at practice for the Islanders on Friday, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports. Pageau missed the 3-2 overtime loss to the Blue Jackets on Thursday due to the same illness that sidelined Anders Lee on Tuesday. This stomach virus may be running through the entire team, but as of now, no one else is expected to miss any games. Pageau has yet to score a goal this season but does have one assist in three games.
Pageau (illness) won't play Thursday versus the Blue Jackets, Brian Compton of NHL.com reports. Pageau's illness is not COVID-19-related, so he shouldn't be sidelined for too long. Kieffer Bellows or Ross Johnston will likely replace Pageau in the lineup, and the veteran center will try to be available for Saturday's road game in Arizona.
Pageau (undisclosed) will be a game-time decision for Thursday's clash with Columbus, Arthur Staple of The Athletic reports. Pageau's status for Thursday night's contest won't be confirmed until the Islanders take the ice for pregame warmups. The 28-year-old pivot has picked up one assist through three games this campaign.
As expected, Pageau (hand) will be ready for the Islanders' Opening Night matchup with the Hurricanes on Oct. 14, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports. Pageau underwent hand surgery in late-June after the Isles were eliminated by the Lightning in the playoffs, but he was always expected to be ready for the start of the 2021-22 campaign. The 28-year-old forward picked up 14 goals and 28 points while averaging 16:47 of ice time through 54 games last season.
