Anthony Beauvillier | PDO: 99.2
5on5 on-ice shooting percentage: 7.57
5on5 on-ice save percentage: 91.59
Anthony Beauvillier has struggled this season. Through the teams first 16 games of the 2018-19 season he had a single point to his name. After an offense explosion against the New York Rangers on game number 17 that changed, temporarily.
Through his next 16 games, including the Rangers game, Beau scored 12 points. We thought Beau was back. But in his next 16 games, Beau has put up just six points. That gives him 19 on the season through 48 games. A pace of 33 points.
That’s not good enough for the Islanders former first-round pick in 2015. They expect more out of Beauvillier. Looking at his PDO he might be in line for a positive correction.
With a 99.2 percent PDO Anthony Beauvillier is below the median line of 100. Meaning he hasn’t been lucky of late. With a 7.57 5on5 on-ice shooting percentage its clear Beauvillier can be better.
As the New York Islanders enter the second half of the 2018-19 season expect Anthony Beauvillier to step up and produce. Shots that weren’t going in before will starts to find a gap here and there.
He won’t likely be that 60 point player we thought he was going to be with the way his 2017-18 campaign ended. But if he can get up to 40-45 points he’ll give the New York Islanders more options as they try to get back to the playoffs. And he’ll give opponents something to consider.
