Taking Over The Worlds

Bailey, Beauvillier and Eberle talk about having five Isles teammates play for Canada at last month's IIHF Worlds

by Cory Wright WrightsWay / New York Islanders

Anthony Beauvillier thought it was funny that even in Denmark, Jordan Eberle couldn't get away from playing with him and Mathew Barzal. 

"Ebs went all the way to Europe just to play with us two goofs again," Beauvillier said. "We were kidding around, but he's probably a little sick of us now."

There was good reason for the Islanders line mates to get a shot together playing for Team Canada at last month's IIHF World Championships, where they were also joined by Josh Bailey and Ryan Pulock. Barzal is the clubhouse favorite to win the Calder Trophy, Beauvillier scored 17 of his 21 goals after joining the line and Eberle had his best statistical year in three seasons.

Friendship Goals: Beau and Barzy

Mathew Barzal and Anthony Beauvillier are becoming best friends as they take on the NHL together

Isles Interview: Barzal and Beau

Isles Interview: Barzal and Beau Episode 2

Mathew Barzal and Anthony Beauvillier talk superstitions, style, cooking and more

  • 02:48 •

Among Mathew Barzal's many talents, his ability to speak near-fluent French flies a little under the radar. 

It's a revelation for some (Montreal media) when Barzal lets loose en francais, but that's old news to Anthony Beauvillier, who first met a slightly less fluent Barzal at the 2012 Allstate All-Canadians Mentorship Camp in Mississauga, ON. 

Beauvillier appreciated Barzal's "bon matin" (good morning) and efforts to converse in french, so the Quebec native filled in his new teammates's vocabulary with words not taught in school. It's not exactly a Stepbrothers "Did we just become best friends?" moment, but it's the origin story for two Islanders who are becoming inseparable.
