Islanders' Adam Pelech: Scoreless in last 10 games

Pelech had the best offensive season of his career with three goals and 28 points in 78 games. Those numbers could've been even better if not for a scoring drought to close out the season when he went 10 straight games without registering a point. Pelech will once again be expected to anchor the Islanders' defense next season, as he will be in the second year of an eight-year, $46 million contract.

Islanders' Adam Pelech: Has career-high point total

Pelech has set a career high in points this season for the Islanders with 28. While Pelech only has three goals, the 28 points are seven more than his previous high of 21 set in the 2018-19 season. Pelech may also set a career best in his rating, which is currently at plus-20 -- two behind his plus-22, also in 2018-19. This is quite impressive when you consider the issues the Islanders have gone through this season, such as opening the season with a 13-game road trip and playing through a COVID-19 outbreak.

Islanders' Adam Pelech: Three helpers against Devils

Pelech notched three assists in Sunday's 4-3 win over the Devils. The 27-year-old blueliner hadn't had a multi-point performance since late January, but Pelech was all over the scoresheet Sunday as he picked up a point in each period while adding two shots, two blocked shots, a hit and a plus-3 rating to his ledger. He already has a career-high 27 points (three goals, 24 assists) through 64 games this season with a well-rounded 85 shots, 86 hits, 104 blocked shots and a plus-22 rating, but his lack of power-play time puts a ceiling on Pelech's fantasy appeal.

Islanders' Adam Pelech: Ties career high in points

Pelech has three goals and 18 assists in 57 games this season. The point total equals his career high that he set in 2018-19 when he had five goals and 16 assists in 78 games. Pelech doesn't possess the offensive ability of Noah Dobson or Ryan Pulock, but he's probably the best overall defender on the team, which his plus-23 rating attests to.

He's been reunited with Ryan Pulock in recent games -- they function as the Islanders' top all-situations defense pairing.

Islanders' Adam Pelech: Modest point streak continues

Pelech has registered assists in consecutive games for the Islanders. Pelech has three goals, 14 assists, and a plus-14 rating in 48 games. The rating is the best on the Islanders, and none of Pelech's teammates are better than plus-3. Pelech has more assists and points than he had all of last season, but offense is not his forte. His job is to keep the opposing team off the scoresheet, something that could prove quite difficult in New York's next game, Monday versus the Avalanche.

Islanders' Adam Pelech: Another solid season

Pelech has a team-leading rating of plus-13. This is all the more impressive when you consider the Islanders have a minus-12 goal differential and the next player on the team with a positive rating is Zdeno Chara at plus-4. Pelech only has two goals and 12 assists this season, but his point total already matches what he produced last year.

Islanders' Adam Pelech: Nets equalizer Thursday

Pelech scored a goal on five shots, blocked two shots and added two PIM in Thursday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Sharks. Pelech quickly retied the game at 3-3 after Logan Couture's tally late in the second period. The 27-year-old Pelech remains a defensive stalwart, but he's added a solid 15 points in 43 contests -- that's his third highest point total in his career. The defenseman also has 52 shots on net, 67 blocked shots, 60 hits and a plus-14 rating this season while logging top-pairing minutes.
