After missing Thursday's game with an illness, Jean-Gabriel Pageau was back on the ice on ice on Friday afternoon for the Islanders practice in Arizona.
Pageau was dealing with a similar ailment that kept captain Anders Lee out of Tuesday night's game in Chicago, but not one that was expected to keep the center out for long. In Pageau's absence on Thursday, Zach Parise shifted to center, with Kieffer Bellows playing on the left side. Head Coach Barry Trotz didn't announce any lineup decisions during his Friday availability.
Pageau has one assist in three games this season, but leads the Islanders with a 63.3 FOW% and has recorded 11 shots on goal, which is tied with Kyle Palmieri and Anthony Beauvillier for third.
