Anthony Beauvillier, who is having a bounce-back year, is ice cold right now for the New York Islanders with two points in his last 10 games.
2019-2020 has been much kinder to Anthony Beauvillier. Through 64 games with the New York Islanders, Beau has 38 points (18 goals, 20 assists). While this is obviously a huge step forward from his down year in 2018-2019, he’s been ice cold as of late.
The Isles offense has been inconsistent, to say the least this season, and while the offense had its ups and downs over the last month or so, Anthony Beauvillier has mostly had downs.
Over the last 10 games, Beau has just two points (1 goal, 1 assist). On a second line with Brock Nelson that’s just not productive enough. Yes, Derrick Brassard on the other side makes things harder for Beau but if he’s playing with Nelson especially he has to be better.
It’s not just the offense that has gone completely cold for Beauvillier. He hasn’t been good defensively posting a minus in six of the last 10 and having a lapse in the overtime loss to St Louis this past week.
Yes, Beauvillier isn’t the sole reason for why the Islanders are struggling right now but his lack of production is amplified when the Isles are getting shutout at home to a playoff team. Look for him to get it in gear soon, as Beau is usually someone who goes from being ice cold to red hot in the blink of an eye.
