Islanders: What are players up to with season suspended?
Wondering what some New York Islanders players are doing during the break? Thanks to social media we can see what some of them are up to.
If you’re like me you’re probably bored and longing for another adult to speak to. So while I stuck to social distancing and stayed at home I wondered what New York Islanders players were up to at this time.
Because, like you, even when I’m bored all I can think about are the Islanders. So, I searched around social media to try and quench my curiosity.
Jordan Eberle and wife Lauren just welcomed a wonderful baby girl to the world. Collins was born weighing 7lbs (Jordan’s number with the Isles) and 14oz (Jordan’s number with the Edmonton Oilers). Wild, right?
Also, congrats to both.
Matt Martin is on the Peloton as he stays in shape for the hopeful return of the 2019-20 NHL season. Meanwhile, Sydney, being the loving and supporting wife that she is, is handing out positive reinforcement from the couch.
It’s the simple things that Anthony Beauvillier misses while the season is on hold. He just misses walking to work with his crew. Same, Beau. Same.
Just to be clear I don’t miss walking to work. I miss Beauvillier and his crew walking to work. (I want hockey back.)
Scott Mayfield got his Irish on for St. Patrick’s Day. The Islanders defenseman tuned into the Dropkick Murphy’s live stream from Boston on St. Patrick’s Day. I’m sure a live concert would have been 1,000 times better but considering the circumstances, this is a great move by the Murphy’s to give us all a bit o’ fun while we do our civic duty and practice social distancing.
Thomas Griess and wife Brittney are spending time outdoors with the doggos. It looks like the two are prepping some wood for next winter.
I know he isn’t an Islanders player anymore, but I (and I’m sure you too) can’t help but keep tabs on the Panda. And I wasn’t disappointed. Robin Lehner clearly isn’t a fan of all those wild proposals – like 24 team playoffs – to get the season back up and running. I wonder what Lehner would like to see for the remainder of 2019-20.
