Add Anthony Beauvillier to the growing list of under-the-weather Islanders.
Beauvillier missed Thursday's practice with an illness, joining Noah Dobson and Leo Komarov as Islanders who are battling illness.
Thursday was the first icetime Beauvillier had missed, while Dobson sat out for the second straight day. Komarov has been out since Oct. 19, but did some off-ice work on Thursday.
Head Coach Barry Trotz said bugs have a way of working around a room, a hazard of the close quarters a hockey team keeps.
"It is what it is," the coach said. "One guy gets it, but we all take in the same air."
Beauvillier's status for the Islanders' back-to-back set on Friday and Saturday has yet to be determined. If Beauvillier can't play, Michael Dal Colle is expected to take his place on the Islanders power play. Otto Koivula was recalled from Bridgeport on Wednesday and could potentially see some action if the Isles are down a man.
