Here’s your daily recap, update, and rankings for New York Islanders prospects and players within the system.
This is the second post of what should be a daily update on New York Islanders prospects and players within the system.
If you want to catch up on the first update and get a bit of background on what these are going to be all about here’s a link to that first update.
Prospect Update from Yesterday
- Anatoly Golyshev (Yekaterinburg Avtomobilist)
Avto lost game four of their opening-round patch up against Avangard Omsk by a score of 4-3 thanks to a double-overtime winner by Ilya Kovalchuk. The Yekaterinburg side is now down 3-1 and facing elimination.
I had previously incorectlly stated that Golyshev’s pointless streak was up to 14 after the loss in game four. Golyshev didn’t play in game 4 due to injury. His pointless streak is still at 14 games.
Note yesterday’s post:
I indicated that William Dufour wasn’t playing due to injury but that I hadn’t received word from the team on what the injury was or what the timetable for return might be. Today I received a little more clarification on the Isles fifth-round pick.
The team told me they are waiting for the swelling around Dufour’s knee before they can get some imaging done and assessed the severity of the injury.
Their head coach indicated after that game against Val-d’Or that Dufour will miss some time. As in this may take a while to heal.
