Nelson missed 10 games in 2021-22 between being placed in COVID protocol and sustaining an injury. His goal pace over 82 games is 42 goals.

Islanders' Brock Nelson: Has career season

Nelson set career highs in goals with 37 and points with 59 this season. Nelson also set a career-high with 11 power-play goals. Most if not all of the forwards for the Islanders underperformed this season, but the same can't be said of Nelson. His previous high goal total was 26, and he blew past that number. Nelson also supplanted Mathew Barzal as the team's top-line center in the last quarter of the season. Nelson seemed to thrive under former head coach Barry Trotz; we will see this season if that play will continue under new head coach Lane Lambert.

Can The Islanders Brock Nelson And Anders Lee Be an 80-Goal Duo?

This season has been a total loss for the New York Islanders, but there have been positives. Barry Trotz was finally forced to make some line changes after nothing seemed to be clicking for the Islanders offense. The new first line of Anders Lee, Brock Nelson, and Anthony Beauvillier has been dynamic to say the least.
