Beauvillier scored his eighth goal of the season in Monday's 2-1 shootout loss to the Penguins. The 21-year-old hasn't been particularly productive lately, scoring only three goals and four points in his last 10 games, and Beauvillier now has just 10 points in 28 games on the season. He's providing to be a decent sniper, but the third-year winger's fantasy value will remain limited until he learns to balance out his production with some helpers.
Beauvillier scored a goal in a 6-2 loss to Dallas on Sunday. Beauvillier was coming off a hat trick in his previous contest and managed to keep his hot streak alive with a goal Sunday. That said, little else went New York's way in this one and they'll hope to regroup in time to battle the Rangers on Wednesday. On the season, the 21-year-old has five goals and six points.
Beauvillier exploded for three goals and an assist in Thursday's 7-5 win over the Rangers. Beauvillier completed the hat trick in the second with a power-play goal, and while very few members of a crowd braving New York's first snow of the season were willing to part with their headwear, a few hats did make their way onto the ice. He completed his four-point night with a helper in the third, turning in one of the season's most unexpected performances considering Beauvillier came in with only one point and a minus-10 rating through 16 games. The 21-year-old forward scored 21 goals last season, so he'll be the hoping this performance is the beginning of a hot streak following his extended cold spell.
Beauvillier was spotted playing on the fourth line for the Islanders during practice Friday, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports. Beauvillier was also dropped from the second power-play unit as head coach Barry Trotz has decided to shake things up for the offensively challenged Islanders. Beauvillier has been a disappointment this season with only one goal (his only point( in 14 games this season. The Islanders were hoping that Beauvillier, coming off a 21-goal 2017-18 campaign, would continue to progress as a goal scorer to offset the loss of John Tavares. To this point, that certainly hasn't happened and Beauvillier may have to earn the trust of Trotz to get back to being a top-six forward.
Beauvillier has been reunited with Mathew Barzal and Jordan Eberle on the top line for the Islanders, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports. Due to a slow start to the season, with zero points in seven games, Beauvillier had been taken off the top line. Head coach Barry Trotz has tried several line combinations with Barzal this season, but looks to have decided to put this trio back together. Beauvillier had a breakout season last year with 21 goals and 36 points, but he may be feeling the pressure to produce even bigger numbers this season due to the loss of John Tavares. He is also facing stronger defensive coverage, which probably doesn't help matters any. With the Islanders playing their next five games versus divisional foes, this move back to the top line could be short-lived should Beauvillier not be able to find his offensive game.
