The New York Islanders are back in action tonight and they will have their two newest members. Both Kyle Palmieri and Travis Zajac will make their debut with the team tonight as they take on Philadelphia.

Washington and New York are still tied at the top of the division as the Flyers continue to fall in the standings. After starting 0-1-2 against the Flyers, the Isles have won three straight against their foes from Philly.

With the Islanders hoping to continue their home success, here are three players to watch for in tonight’s contest.

Kyle Palmieri

DraftKings: $5,200 | Fanduel: $5,600

Right into the lineup and right onto the scorecard? Yes, with two goals in his last three games before being traded I anticipate Kyle Palmieri to have an immediate impact on this Islanders team, especially on the power play.

Where he plays yet is still yet to be seen but with the Isles deep lineup, I don’t anticipate the adjustment taking too long.

Brock Nelson

DraftKings: $5,100 | Fanduel: $5,600

Brock is going through one of his hot stretches. With three points and two goals in his last three, I think he keeps the train rolling against the Flyers. The second line for the Islanders has hit a stride recently and expect them to stay hot.

He had a goal in the Islanders 1-0 win over Washington on Tuesday and put up 15.8 fantasy points. He’s averaging 8.3 FPPG.

Jordan Eberle

DraftKings: $5,300 | Fanduel: $6,300

Jordan Eberle should stick with Mathew Barzal up on the top line, even with the additions of Kyle Palmieri and Travis Zajac. The duo of Barzal and Eberle have been solid this year, as Eberle has the second-most points on the season behind Barzy.
