Welcome to the Islanders Prospect Report, a weekly roundup of the Islanders junior, collegiate, and European prospects. Visit our In The System page for more prospect content. Read Alan Fuehring's Bridgeport Report on Tuesday.

Here are this week's updates on the Islanders prospects:

RATY RAMPS UP PRODUCTION

Aatu Raty scored in back-to-back games with Jukurit of Liiga, the top tier professional ice hockey league in Finland. The Islanders' 2021 second rounder (52nd overall) found the back of the net in Jukurit's 4-3 loss to Ilves on Nov. 19. 

The following night on Nov. 20, the 18-year-old centerman scored a late goal in Jukurit's eventual 4-2 defeat to KooKoo. 

With two goals in as many games, Raty doubled his goal production with the team and now has six points (4G, 2A) through four games with Jukurit.

DUFOUR'S DOMINANCE CONTINUES 

William Dufour's sensational start to the season with the Saint John Sea Dogs of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (QMJHL) continues. 

Dufour registered his 16th goal of the season and his fourth power-play goal as he and Saint John dropped a 5-3 result to Gatineau on Nov. 17. 

In the following two games on Nov. 19 and Nov. 20, Dufour dished out an assist in each game to extend his point streak to eight-straight contests. The Islanders' 2020 fifth rounder (152nd overall) has totaled 13 points (6G, 7A) in that span. 

Throughout 20 games this season, Dufour has only gone two games without recording at least a point. The 19-year-old winger now has 31 points (16G, 15A). His 16 goals are tied for the most in the entire QMJHL. 

Dufour and Saint John are ranked 7th overall in the eastern conference with a 9-8-3 record. 


TIKKANEN PICKS UP FOURTH WIN 

Henrik Tikkanen earned his fourth win of the season with MoDo of Hockey Allsvenskan. Tikkanen backstopped MoDo to a 4-3 win over Vita Hasten on Nov. 19. 

The Islanders' 2020 seventh rounder (214th overall) now has a 4-2-0 record, a 2.82 GAA and a .899 SV%.

BERG BRINGS THE SCORING

Cameron Berg posted a four-point (3G, 1A) weekend as he and the University of Nebraska-Omaha Mavericks swept in their series over Alaska Fairbanks. 

Berg scored twice, including once on the power play, in UNO's 5-2 victory over Alaska Fairbanks on Nov. 19. 

The following night on Nov. 20, Berg recorded a two-point outing with a goal and an assist in Omaha's 4-2 victory. 

Through 13 games this season, the Islanders' 2021 fourth rounder (125th overall) now has nine points (6G, 3A), including three power-play strikes. The freshman's six goals are the second-most on his team. 

Berg and UNO have a 2-2-0 conference record in the NCHC and an 11-3-0 overall record, where they're ranked ninth overall in the NCAA.
