As the New York Islanders head into their bye week the team elected to send down Anthony Beauvillier, Sebastian Aho, and Tanner Fritz.

After the New York Islanders win over the New Jersey Devils, the team headed into a five day off period. The Islanders elected to send a few guys down to the AHL so they could get some playing time this week while the team is off.

As Arthur Staple reported, the Isles elected to ship off Sebastian Aho, Anthony Beauvillier, and Tanner Fritz to get some work as the big club rests for their “Bye Week”.

It makes sense because Bridgeport practices during the week and also they play on Wednesday and Friday night. I disagreed with the Anthony Beauvillier demotion the first time, but now I believe it makes sense for these guys to stay fresh.

Especially for Beau. He scored two goals the other night for the Sound Tigers and then scored in yesterday’s win over the Devils.

Sebastian Aho had 20 points in 29 games with the Sound Tigers before being called up, while Tanner Fritz lead the team with 35 points (10 goals, 25 assists) during his time there.
