Top Adam Pelech News

  • Islanders' Adam Pelech: Two points including OT winner

    Pelech scored the game-winning goal and added an assist in Tuesday's 5-4 overtime victory over the Penguins.

    The veteran blueliner delivered only the second game-winning goal of his career, cruising into the Pittsburgh end and ripping a shot blocker side past Alex Nedeljkovic. It was Pelech's first goal of 2023-24 and his second multi-point performance of the season, with the other coming Nov. 22 against the Flyers. He has just eight points in 31 games, but five of those points have come in his last eight contests.

  • Islanders' Adam Pelech: Nabs helper

    Pelech notched an assist, two hits and a plus-2 rating in Thursday's 6-2 win over the Lightning.

    Pelech helped out on Bo Horvat's insurance marker in the second period. All five of Pelech's points this season are assists, and two of them have come over his last four outings. The 29-year-old defenseman has added 29 shots on net, 24 hits, 46 blocked shots, 17 PIM and an even plus-minus rating through 27 outings. His lack of offense likely keeps him off the radar in most fantasy formats.

  • Islanders' Adam Pelech: Warming up Monday

    Pelech (upper body) is expected to suit up Monday against Toronto, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

  • Islanders' Adam Pelech: Game-time call Monday

    Pelech (upper body) will be a game-time decision against the Leafs on Monday, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

    Pelech looks poised to return versus Toronto after practicing with the team but coach Patrick Roy wouldn't go so far as to confirm the blueliner was ready to suit up. Injuries have limited the 29-year-old Pelech to 25 outings this season in which he recorded four points (all assists), 19 hits and 42 blocked shots. At this point, Pelech will be hard-pressed to reach the 20-point threshold, a mark he hit in each of the previous two seasons.

  • Islanders' Adam Pelech: Out Saturday

    Pelech (upper body) won't play Saturday against the Panthers, Andrew Gross of Newsday.

    Pelech, who is considered day-to-day, suffered the injury late in Thursday's loss to Montreal. He has four assists in 25 games this season. Samuel Bolduc will likely slot into the lineup versus Florida in Pelech's absence.

  • Islanders' Adam Pelech: Sustains upper-body injury

    Pelech suffered an upper-body injury in the third period of Thursday's game versus the Canadiens, and there was no update on his status after the contest, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

    Pelech's injury came after a blatant elbow to the head from Brendan Gallagher. Given Pelech's history of concussions, the Islanders figure to be very cautious with his recovery, especially with the bye week and All-Star break coming soon. It's unclear if he'll play Saturday versus the Panthers.

  • Islanders' Adam Pelech: Activated from LTIR

    Pelech (upper body) was activated from long-term injured reserve Tuesday.

  • Islanders' Adam Pelech: Not close to returning

    Pelech (upper body) will be eligible to be activated from long-term injured reserve Tuesday, but according to coach Lane Lambert, "it's still going to be a while" until the defenseman will be ready to play, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

    Pelech had only collected three helpers through 16 games before suffering the upper-body injury, so fantasy managers shouldn't feel compelled to track his status. Once activated, the 29-year-old blueliner will likely slot into a top-four role for the Islanders.

  • Islanders' Adam Pelech: Game-time decision against Oilers

    Pelech (lower body) will be a game-time call versus Edmonton on Monday, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

    Pelech has been out of the lineup for three of the Islanders' last four contests due to his lower-body issue. The defender is mired in a nine-game pointless streak and is still looking for his first goal of the season. Considering the Toronto native is coming off a career-high six goals last year, extended scoring droughts for Pelech should be expected.

    Pelech (lower body) will be a game-time call Tuesday versus Minnesota, according to Andrew Gross of Newsday.

He has one assist, 10 shots on goal, 20 blocked shots and 12 hits in nine games this season. If Pelech is good to go Tuesday, Samuel Bolduc will probably be a healthy scratch.

  • Islanders' Adam Pelech: Gets help on helper

    Pelech was credited with an assist in Friday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Blue Jackets.

    Upon finding an open lane, Pelech fired the puck at the net and teammate Kyle Palmieri squared up at the doorstep for the deflected goal. It wasn't the prettiest way to get his team on the scoreboard, but between the helper, three blocked shots and four shots on goal, Pelech ended up with a fairly strong fantasy performance. The top-pairing defenseman has five goals, 14 assists and a plus-15 rating through 52 games.
