It's time for episode 227 of the Eyes on Isles podcast! This week, we'll be getting into the NHL pause to kick things off. After COVID-19 ran through the league, the NHL decided to shut things down until December 26. We'll discuss how it impacts the Islanders, when the games will be made up and what it means for the Olympics.

Next, we want to show some love to Kieffer Bellows who was playing much better hockey right before the shutdown. In fact, in his last five games he has four points (2 goals, 2 assists). Mitch and I will discuss his play of late and what that means for his future.

As always, we'll round out with Mitch giving us his updates on the prospects, we'll do the quiz and then the social segment before calling it a day. Here's what you can expect from episode 227:


NHL Pause

The NHL decided to pause their season. Was it the right move, too late, or should they have kept playing? We'll get into all of it and what it means for the Islanders.

Kieffer Bellows

Bellows has looked much better but still hasn't gotten much ice time. What does his play recently mean for his future with the team?

Down on the Farm

Mitch will update us on the prospects from all around the world and highlights from any of his interviews.


On the quiz, Mitch will pick a random player in Islanders history and I have to try to guess who that player is based on five clues. It’s usually a blast.


In the social segment, we’ll answer questions and talk about the biggest stuff from Isles Twitter this past week.
