Islanders Prospects Review – Multiple prospects in CHL are killing it
Kieffer Bellows – 2016 1st Round, 19th pick
Kieffer Bellows has stepped it up of late. The former first-rounder has had a tough time adjusting to the AHL, but after being a healthy scratch for a few games he’s turned it around with five points (four goals) over his last six games.
He’s still not where anyone expected him to be, but it’s a step in the right direction. But after getting the Josh Ho-Sang healthy scratch, he reacted in the best way possible. Prove them wrong. It’s exactly the type of reaction you’d hope to see from a young man who needs to get his career back on track.
Sebastian Aho – 2017 5th Round, 139th pick
Aho is now second on the team in points with 15 on the season. On just about any other NHL team he’d be playing in the big leagues. But with the deep blue line the Islanders have, he’s stuck in the AHL. Come the trade deadline that might change for him if he keeps up this pace of production.
