While Kieffer Bellows, Otto Koivula and Robin Salo compete in the World Junior Hockey Championships, other Islanders prospects have gotten back to work. David Quenneville is back to lighting up the Western Hockey League, while Anatoly Golyshev is on a tear in the KHL. That and more in the Islanders Prospect Report.
QUENNEVILLE CONTINUES TO LIGHT LAMP:
David Quenneville posted back-to-back three-point games last week, scoring six points (3G, 3A) in a home-and-home set against the Lethbridge Hurricanes.
Quenneville scored two goals and added an assist on Dec. 27 and followed up the performance with a goal and two assists in the rematch two nights later. The Islanders' 2016 seventh-rounder had a three-game goal streak dating back before the Christmas break, but it ended on Saturday when Quenneville was held pointless against Red Deer.
Quenneville leads Western Hockey League defensemen with 15 goals and is second with 42 points in 36 games this season. Quenneville is second on the Medicine Hat Tigers in points this season.
GOLYSHEV RIDING GOAL STREAK:
Anatoly Golyshev had four points (2G, 2A) in two games last week for Avtomobilist.
Golyshev's highlight reel goal headlined a three-point game (1G, 2A) in a 4-3 in over SKA St. Petersburg on Dec. 27. The Islanders' 2016 fourth-round pick notched a goal against HC Dynamo Moscow two nights later, extending his point streak to five games (4G, 4A). In his last 11 games, Golyshev has 14 points (7G, 7A).
Overall, Golyshev has 22 points (12G, 10A) in 29 games this season, surpassing his goal and point totals from last season.
MIRAGEAS, PROVIDENCE WIN THREE RIVERS CLASSIC:
Ben Mirageas and the Providence Friars won the Three Rivers Classic on Saturday, beating Robert Morris Colonials 2-1 in the title game.
Mirageas scored one goal in the tournament, netting the sixth goal in a 6-0 win over Arizona State in the semifinals.
Providence will take on their cross-town rival Brown University in the Mayor's Cup on Jan. 3.
