Number 4: Anthony Beauvillier (Left Wing) | Age: 22

New York Islanders Stats: 18 G, 10 A, 28 PTS

After a strong finish to the 2017-2018 season, Anthony Beauvillier was expected to be a top-six piece to this Islanders team. Unfortunately, he was anything but that with the Isles this year due to offensive struggles.

Initially paired with long-time friend Mathew Barzal, Beau eventually got demoted to the third line. It worked initially, see the four-point game against the Rangers, but eventually, Beuvillier slowed right back down.

We’re heading into year four of Anthony Beauvillier in the NHL and we have no clue what he is at the NHL level. The top-six potential is absolutely there, it’s just a matter of if they can get that out of him on a consistent basis.

For now, he seems like a lock for the third line. We know Anthony Beauvillier is NHL talent it’s just a matter of where he slots in. Still, Beu is an important depth piece to what the Islanders are trying to do here.
