What are some of the longest goal streaks in New York Islanders history and who holds them? With Mike Bossy being an Islander for ten years, you know he holds a few.

Moving Derick Brassard to the wing has been one of Barry Trotz’s most inspired moves on the Islanders roster yet. Brassard has gone from a weakness down the middle to one of the hottest goal scorers in the NHL.

Since being moved to the wing by Trotz, Derick Brassard is carrying a five-game goal streak. The 13 year NHL veteran is scoring like a mad-man at the moment. Over his five-game goal streak, only Edmonton Oilers Leon Draisaitl has more goals than Brassard.

Draisaitl is a 50 goal scorer that gets to play with a generational talent in Connor McDavid. Derick Brassard is playing with Anthony Beauvillier and Brock Nelson. Both are fine top-six players, but they aren’t McDavid. What Brassard is doing is ridiculous.

Consider this, in 30 games between the Florida Panther and the Colorado Avalanche last season, Brassard scored five goals. He has the same goal production in less than half the games with the Islanders.

A five-game scoring streak isn’t anything groundbreaking. But it certainly got me thinking. What are some of the longest goal streaks in New York Islanders history? And how many does Mike Bossy have?

Here are the three longest goal-streaks in Islanders history.
