New York Islanders Daily: Kieffer Bellows Ends 10 Game Goal Drought
Former New York Islanders first-round selection, Kieffer Bellows, ended his 10 game goalless streak last night in the Sound Tigers win.
It hasn’t been the best of starts for one of the New York Islanders top prospects. Kieffer Bellows, who the Islanders selected in the first round of the 2016 draft, has been slow out of the gate with the Sound Tigers.
This is Bellows’ first action at the AHL level and his initial slow start showed that he was still getting acquainted with the game in the A. Last night was a bit of a coming out party for Bellows, Josh Ho-Sang and many others in their dominant 8-5 win.
For the first time in 10 games, Kieffer Bellows found the back of the net. He did it twice for good measure both of them being beautiful goals.
Bellows now has five points in 12 games (3 goals, 2 assists). Obviously, we’d like to see those numbers go up but considering his slow start it’s fair to assume he’ll catch a groove and get hot eventually.
Last year in the WHL, Bellows scored 41 goals. He’s someone you’d expect to be a 25 plus goal guy at the NHL level once he’s ready. At 20 years old there’s no reason to rush him, especially with the big club clicking right now.
