The focus for Palmieri is on this season for the Islanders and not what will happen in free agency, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.
The Islanders acquired Travis Zajac and Palmieri before the trade deadline, and both will be unrestricted free agents after the season. The 30-year-old Palmieri is finishing up a five-year, $23.25 million contract. It will be an interesting offseason once again for free agents, as the salary cap is expected to remain unchanged. Palmieri's struggles this season haven't helped. He has only nine goals in 43 games and just one since being acquired by the Isles.
Palmieri scored a goal on two shots in Sunday's 3-2 overtime win over the Rangers.
Palmieri scored his first goal in three games as an Islander after he was traded from the Devils on Wednesday. The 30-year-old winger has nine goals, 18 points, 88 shots on net, 41 hits and a minus-4 rating through 37 games overall this year. He's played in a third-line role since joining the Islanders, which could depress his fantasy value.
Palmieri will make his Islanders debut Thursday against Philadelphia.
Palmieri was just traded from the Devils to the Isles on Wednesday. The 30-year-old winger is expected to skate on New York's third line and top power-play unit during his debut. He's notched 17 points in 34 games this season.
Palmieri could play Thursday versus the Flyers, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.
Palmieri will participate in the morning skate with the Islanders on Thursday, and then coach Barry Trotz will decide whether or not he will insert Palmieri into the lineup. General manager Lou Lamoriello stated that Palmieri would not need to be quarantined after the trade because he came from New Jersey, which is nearby.
The Devils traded Palmieri and Travis Zajac to the Islanders on Wednesday for A.J. Greer, Mason Jobst, a 2021 first-round draft pick and a conditional 2022 fourth-round draft pick.
The Islanders are tied for first in the East Division, and they're pushing their chips in as the playoffs approach, acquiring two veteran forwards. Palmieri scored at least 24 goals in each of the last five seasons, though he's off to a slower start with eight goals and nine assists this year. Once he clears the necessary COVID-19 protocols, he should slot into the top six along with power-play duties.
Palmieri (undisclosed) won't play in Sunday's game against the Capitals for precautionary purposes, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.
It's unclear if Palmieri has an injury, as the Devils may be holding the pending free agent out in case a trade offer surfaces. The 30-year-old scored four goals over the last eight games. His next chance to play is Tuesday against the Sabres. The trade deadline is April 12.
Palmieri scored a goal on three shots Sunday in a 1-0 win over the Bruins.
Palmieri deflected a Ty Smith shot to break a scoreless deadlock with 3:23 left in the first period and New Jersey netminder MacKenzie Blackwood made the 1-0 lead stand the rest of the way. For Palmieri it was his seventh goal of the season and his third in the last six outings. The 29-year-old, who has 16 points in 32 games, has seen his shooting percentage go from a career-high 16.1 in 2019-20 to a career-low 8.8 this season.
Palmieri registered a power-play goal on two shots and had two PIM Tuesday in a 4-3 win over the Flyers.
Palmieri drilled a one-timer from the left dot to put New Jersey on top 2-1 with just six seconds left in the opening frame. It was Palmieri's second goal in the last three contests, and the 29-year-old has chipped in with points in five of his last seven. With just six tallies in 29 games on the year, Palmieri will almost certainly fall short of the 20-goal plateau for the first time since 2014-15.
Palmieri scored the game's only goal with 4:37 left in regulation in Sunday's 1-0 win over Boston. He finished with three shots and one hit.
Pavel Zacha's rebound attempt went off of Palmieri, who had crashed the crease and occupied multiple Boston defenders. It was Palmieri's first goal since Feb. 20, ending his goal-scoring dry spell at eight games. The 29-year-old racked up 24-plus goals in each of the previous five years, but his production has dropped to just four tallies in 20 contests in 2020-21.
Palmieri picked up two assists, one on the power play, in Sunday's 4-3 loss to the Capitals.
The veteran winger continues to put his sluggish start to the season behind him. Since the Devils resumed play following their COVID-19 hiatus, Palmieri has found the scoresheet in all four games, racking up three goals and six points while showing great chemistry with linemates Jack Hughes and Andreas Johnsson.
Palmieri scored two goals -- one shorthanded -- in Thursday's 3-2 win over Boston.
The five-time 24-goal scorer finally got the monkey off his back, potting his first goals of the season in his 10th game. Palmieri usually contributes on the other special teams unit, with 59 career power-play goals, but he scored his second career shorthanded goal for his second marker of the second period to hand New Jersey a 2-0 lead. Now that he has seen the puck cross the goal line, expect Palmieri to start marking the scoresheet with greater regularity.
Palmieri was activated from the NHL's COVID-19 protocol Saturday, Corey Masisak of The Athletic reports.
Palmieri is back on the active roster, but 13 of the Devils' players remain in the league's protocol. Nevertheless, they're scheduled to return Tuesday against the Rangers. Palmieri should be ready to re-enter the lineup if the game remains on as planned. He dished out three assists and 13 hits through eight games before landing in protocol.
Palmieri was added back to the NHL's COVID-19 protocols list Thursday, Conor Ryan of MassLive.com reports.
Palmieri returns to the list just one day after being removed from it. The Devils currently have 18 players in the NHL's COVID-19 protocols, so at this point a return to play Tuesday against the Rangers seems unlikely.
Palmieri was activated from the NHL's COVID-19 protocols list Wednesday, Corey Masisak of The Athletic reports.
Although Palmieri's been cleared, the Devils still have 17 players in the league's COVID-19 protocols, so at this point there's no telling when they'll be able to resume play. Palmieri has picked up three helpers through eight games this campaign.
Palmieri won't play in Sunday's game against the Sabres because of COVID-19 protocol.
Palmieri joins four teammates in the NHL's COVID-19 protocol. The 29-year-old likely will miss a few games as a result, and the team should provide an update on Palmieri's status soon.
Palmieri (undisclosed) won't play in Sunday's game against the Sabres, Jourdon LaBarber of Sabres.com reports.
Palmieri played in Saturday's loss to the Sabres, recording 18:23 of ice time and firing two shots on net. It's unclear why he's unavailable Sunday. Nevertheless, Mikhail Maltsev and Jesper Boqvist were promoted from the taxi squad and are expected to enter the lineup.
Palmieri had six shots in Thursday's 3-1 loss to Philadelphia but still has no goals through seven games.
Palmieri is starting to generate chances at a higher clip, so it's only a matter of time until the skilled winger finally breaks through. After totaling only five shots in New Jersey's first four games, Palmieri has fired 14 pucks on net over the last three. This could be a nice buy-low opportunity considering Palmieri has scored at least 24 goals in each of the previous five seasons.
Palmieri had an assist and three shots in Saturday's 2-1 overtime win over the Bruins.
Palmieri was much more engaged in this one after a quiet season debut in which he mustered just one shot. The skilled winger brought a physical edge, leading the team with five hits while also picking up a minor penalty. He's expected to lead the Devils in goals this year after scoring between 24 and 30 in each of his five previous seasons with the team.
Palmieri has 25 goals, 45 points and a minus-4 rating in 65 games this season.
Palmieri has been one of the most consistent Devils over the last several years; he's pocketed at least 20 goals and 40 points in five straight seasons. For the third straight season, he's tallied exactly 11 power-play goals. The 29-year-old winger has a chance at his second 30-goal campaign if the NHL finishes a full 82-game schedule this year.
Palmieri scored two goals in Saturday's 6-4 win over the Rangers.
He snapped a five-game point drought, and Palmieri has just four points (three goals, one assist) in his last 10 games. Despite the recent downturn, he has 45 points in 64 games and is closing in on his fourth 50-point season in the last five. Hopefully this two-goal outburst gets his sniping back on track.
