Welcome to the Islanders Prospect Report, a weekly roundup of the Islanders junior, collegiate and European prospects. Check back Tuesday's throughout the season for Alan Fuehring's Bridgeport Report.


Cole Coskey is keeping the momentum going. The Isles' 2019 seventh-round pick (209th overall) has 10 points (6G, 4A) through the first eight games of the season with the Saginaw Spirit. Coskey recorded three points (2G, 1A) last week to help bolster Saginaw's record to 4-3-1, which leads the OHL's Western Conference and ranks third overall in the league. 

Coskey had an assist on Oct. 3 as Saginaw topped 5-4 wins over the Niagara Ice Dogs. Coskey scored twice as the Spirit dropped a 4-3 decision Oshawa Generals on Oct. 6. Coskey is currently second on the team in goals. 


In the QMJHL, Quebec Remparts captain Felix Bibeau compiled six points (1G, 5A) through his past two games. The Islanders' 2019 sixth rounder (178th overall) added two assists in the Remparts 5-4 win over the Charlottetown Islanders on Oct. 4. Bibeau, a 20-year-old center, registered a four-point night (1G, 3A) on Oct. 6 to propel Quebec 7-5 win over the Saint John Sea Dogs. Bibeau's four-point night matched a personal best and earned him CHL player of the night honors. 

Bibeau and the Remparts are ranked fourth in Eastern Conference with a 5-2-0 record (10 points) and are ranked seventh overall in the 'Q.'
