  • Islanders' Adam Pelech: Proves he belongs

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/12/18) Pelech had three goals, 16 assists, and a plus-seven rating in his first full NHL season.

    The Islanders were a team that had issues on defense all season as they led the league in goals against (296). Pelech wasn't the problem, however, as he proved not be a defensive liability with his plus-seven rating. He doesn't add much offensively, but the Isles would seem to need more players like him to stabilize what is a leaky defensive corps and a shaky goaltending unit. Pelech should have a spot among the top six defensemen next season even if they Islanders bring in reinforcements during free agency.

    Islanders' Adam Pelech: Snaps 16-game pointless streak

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/21/18) Pelech snapped a 16-game pointless streak with his third goal of the season Tuesday versus Pittsburgh.

    Pelech only has three goals and seven assists in 44 games for the Islanders this season. He is the definition of a defensive defenseman. Pelech uses his size to clear out the crease and keep the opponent's best offensive players off the scoreboard. He's a solid defender, but one who is unlikely to ever produce an offensive season worthy of fantasy consideration.

    Islanders' Adam Pelech: One point in last 12 games

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/25/18) Pelech has one point, an assist, in his last 12 games for the Islanders.

    Pelech has three goals and seven assists in 59 games for the season. Offense is not a big part of his game, but the Isles would like their defensemen to take calculated risks in the offensive zone to supplement their scoring attack. Pelech is a plus-14 this season on a team that has had its share of defensive and goaltending issues and is developing into a reliable, second pair, stay-at-home defender.

    Islanders' Adam Pelech: Might be Isles' best overall defender

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/3/18) Pelech is third on the Islanders with a plus-10 rating.

    The Islanders have had their issues on defense all season but Pelech is not part of the problem. He doesn't have the skating skills of a Nick Leddy or the booming shot of Ryan Pulock but he is turning into a solid stay at home defender who knows how to take care of the puck in his own zone. Pelech has also scored his first two goals of the season during his past eight games. He is rewarding the Islanders' faith in him when they signed him to a four-year contract last July.

    Islanders' Adam Pelech: Turning into solid defender

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/12/18) Pelech hasn't scored a goal this season but he is tied for second on the team with a plus-9 rating.

    Pelech is tied with forward Andrew Ladd at plus-9 and trails only defenseman Calvin de Haan (plus-11), who is out for the season with a shoulder injury. The Islanders have been porous on defense overall and getting shaky goaltending, but Pelech has been a steady performer in front of his own net. He will never be mistaken for a goal-scoring defender with only three career tallies in 92 games, so to stay on the team, he will need to be a lock down blueliner.
