Top Adam Pelech News

  • Islanders' Adam Pelech: Scoreless in last 10 games

    Pelech had the best offensive season of his career with three goals and 28 points in 78 games.

    Those numbers could've been even better if not for a scoring drought to close out the season when he went 10 straight games without registering a point. Pelech will once again be expected to anchor the Islanders' defense next season, as he will be in the second year of an eight-year, $46 million contract.

  • Islanders' Adam Pelech: Has career-high point total

    Pelech has set a career high in points this season for the Islanders with 28.

    While Pelech only has three goals, the 28 points are seven more than his previous high of 21 set in the 2018-19 season. Pelech may also set a career best in his rating, which is currently at plus-20 -- two behind his plus-22, also in 2018-19. This is quite impressive when you consider the issues the Islanders have gone through this season, such as opening the season with a 13-game road trip and playing through a COVID-19 outbreak.

  • Islanders' Adam Pelech: Three helpers against Devils

    Pelech notched three assists in Sunday's 4-3 win over the Devils.

    The 27-year-old blueliner hadn't had a multi-point performance since late January, but Pelech was all over the scoresheet Sunday as he picked up a point in each period while adding two shots, two blocked shots, a hit and a plus-3 rating to his ledger. He already has a career-high 27 points (three goals, 24 assists) through 64 games this season with a well-rounded 85 shots, 86 hits, 104 blocked shots and a plus-22 rating, but his lack of power-play time puts a ceiling on Pelech's fantasy appeal.

  • Islanders' Adam Pelech: Good to go Thursday

    Pelech (undisclosed) is expected to suit up Thursday against Columbus, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

    Pelech was considered a game-time call but he won't miss any game action after dealing with an undisclosed issue. The 27-year-old blueliner has tallied 23 points while averaging 21:18 of ice time through 61 games this season.

  • Islanders' Adam Pelech: Game-time call

    Pelech (undisclosed) will be a game-time decision for Thursday's matchup with Columbus, Stefen Rosner of NYI Hockey Now reports.

    It isn't clear what kind of injury Pelech is dealing with ahead of Thursday's contest. Confirmation on his status versus the Blue Jackets should surface prior to puck drop.

  • Islanders' Adam Pelech: Ties career high in points

    Pelech has three goals and 18 assists in 57 games this season.

    The point total equals his career high that he set in 2018-19 when he had five goals and 16 assists in 78 games. Pelech doesn't possess the offensive ability of Noah Dobson or Ryan Pulock, but he's probably the best overall defender on the team, which his plus-23 rating attests to.

  • Islanders' Adam Pelech: Slides helper Friday

    Pelech logged an assist, two blocked shots and a plus-3 rating in Friday's 5-2 win over the Jets.

    Pelech has started March in good form at both ends of the ice. He's picked up four assists in six games while adding a plus-7 rating and 11 blocked shots. He's been reunited with Ryan Pulock in recent games -- they function as the Islanders' top all-situations defense pairing. Pelech has 19 points, a plus-20 rating, 83 blocked shots, 67 hits and 67 shots on net in 51 outings this season.

  • Islanders' Adam Pelech: Modest point streak continues

    Pelech has registered assists in consecutive games for the Islanders.

    Pelech has three goals, 14 assists, and a plus-14 rating in 48 games. The rating is the best on the Islanders, and none of Pelech's teammates are better than plus-3. Pelech has more assists and points than he had all of last season, but offense is not his forte. His job is to keep the opposing team off the scoresheet, something that could prove quite difficult in New York's next game, Monday versus the Avalanche.

  • Islanders' Adam Pelech: Nets equalizer Thursday

    Pelech scored a goal on five shots, blocked two shots and added two PIM in Thursday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Sharks.

    Pelech quickly retied the game at 3-3 after Logan Couture's tally late in the second period. The 27-year-old Pelech remains a defensive stalwart, but he's added a solid 15 points in 43 contests -- that's his third highest point total in his career. The defenseman also has 52 shots on net, 67 blocked shots, 60 hits and a plus-14 rating this season while logging top-pairing minutes.

  • Islanders' Adam Pelech: Another solid season

    Pelech has a team-leading rating of plus-13.

    This is all the more impressive when you consider the Islanders have a minus-12 goal differential and the next player on the team with a positive rating is Zdeno Chara at plus-4. Pelech only has two goals and 12 assists this season, but his point total already matches what he produced last year.

  • Islanders' Adam Pelech: Garners helper in win

    Pelech posted an assist, two blocked shots and a plus-2 rating in Wednesday's 6-3 win over the Canucks.

    Pelech had a shot attempt deflected in by Brock Nelson at 3:43 of the first period as the Islanders stormed ahead with a quick surge of offense. The 27-year-old Pelech has earned two goals and seven assists in his last 13 games. The All-Star defenseman's uptick has coincided with better play from the Islanders in the last month. For the season, Pelech has 13 points, 40 shots on net, 58 blocked shots, 54 hits and a plus-13 rating through 36 contests in a top-four role.

  • Islanders' Adam Pelech: Posts assist in loss

    Pelech recorded an assist in Sunday's 4-3 loss to the Wild.

    Pelech reached the 10-assist mark with the secondary helper on a Brock Nelson tally in the first period. The 27-year-old Pelech finished January with a goal and six helpers in 10 contests, as well as a nomination to next weekend's All-Star Game. The Ontario native is at 11 points, 37 shots on net, 51 blocked shots, 52 hits and a plus-11 rating in 33 outings overall.

  • Islanders' Adam Pelech: Serves pair of helpers

    Pelech added two assists in a 4-0 win over the Coyotes on Friday.

    Pelech has four assists over his last three contests after the pair Friday. The defenseman has a goal and nine assists in 29 contests this season, meaning he is on pace to clear his 16-assist high repeated in 2017 and 2018 in 78 games.

  • Islanders' Adam Pelech: Contributes helper Monday

    Pelech notched an assist and two shots on goal in Monday's 4-1 win over the Flyers.

    Fresh off of being named to the Metropolitan Division's All-Star team, Pelech was able to add an assist on Matt Martin's empty-netter Monday. The 27-year-old Pelech has just seven points in 27 games, but he's been solid defensively with 46 blocked shots, 45 hits and a plus-6 rating. His lack of offense will limit his fantasy value to deeper formats since he doesn't really stand out in any one statistical area.

  • Islanders' Adam Pelech: Finds twine Thursday

    Pelech scored his first goal of the season in a 3-2 win over the Devils on Thursday.

    Pelech finally got into the goal column in his 25th game of the year. He doesn't do much to move the fantasy needle, as evidenced by his modest six points this season.

  • Islanders' Adam Pelech: Team-best rating

    Pelech has yet to wrinkle the twine this season but does have five assists and a team-best rating of plus-4 in 24 games for the Islanders.

    This has been a trying season for Pelech and the Isles. They opened the season on a 13-game road trip due to their arena not being ready. Then they had a massive COVID-19 outbreak that forced them to play shorthanded for several games. Now that they are healthy, they are still shut down as their Canadian road trip was canceled due to attendance restrictions at those arenas. The Islanders will next play Thursday versus the Devils.

  • Islanders' Adam Pelech: Could get more playing time

    Bellows could be in line for a bigger role with the Islanders when play resumes, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

    The Islanders' season is not going as planned, and they will have decisions to make ahead of the March 21 trade deadline. One of those decisions will be whether or not Bellows is a part of the future for the Islanders or if they are better off dealing him for draft picks. Coach Barry Trotz has stated that Bellows deserves more ice time than he has gotten. Bellows will next get a chance to show the Islanders what he can do Wednesday versus the Red Wings.

  • Islanders' Adam Pelech: Best rating on team

    Pelech may only have four assists in 22 games for the Islanders this season, but he also has a team-leading rating of plus-5.

    Pelech is not on the team for his offense but rather for his play in the defensive zone. Pelech has only recorded more than 20 points in a season once (2018-19) in his career. However, his plus rating is impressive when you consider he is one of only two Islanders with such a rating, the other being Kieffer Bellows, who has only played 12 games. Pelech will next get a chance to get his first goal of the season when the NHL resumes (hopefully) its schedule after the Christmas break on Monday in Buffalo.
