Isles' Nilsson Signs With KHL

News: Anders Nilsson signed a deal to play in the KHL next season, according to the Islanders Point Blank.
Analysis: This was not a surprise as Anders Nilsson had told the Islanders he did not want to play in the AHL next season. Nilsson was 8-7-0 with a 3.11 GAA and .898 save percentage in 19 games for the Isles this past season. It certainly doesn't look like they will miss him.

Nilsson Not Expected To Return To The Islanders

News: Anders Nilsson is not expected to return to the Islanders next season, according to Newsday's Arthur Staple.
Analysis: Anders Nilsson wants the Isles to give him a one-way contract and that is something the team is unwilling to do. Nilsson is more than likely headed to Europe to play in either the SHL or KHL next year.

Isles' Nilsson In Net Sunday

News: Anders Nilsson will be in goal for the Islanders on Sunday, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.
Analysis: Anders Nilsson will get the start for the season finale on Sunday in place of Evgeni Nabokov. He made 25 saves on 27 shots on Friday, and will look to finish things off strong on Sunday heading into the offseason.

Islanders' Nilsson Stops 36 In Win

News: Anders Nilsson made 36 saves on 39 shots in a shootout win over the Sabres on Sunday.
Analysis: Anders Nilsson finishes the year with a .896 save percentage and 3.11 GAA. The Islanders will likely look to upgrade their goaltending situation for next season.

Nilsson, Isles Win In Shootout

News: Anders Nilsson stopped all but two of the 27 shots he faced in Friday's shootout win over New Jersey.
Analysis: Anders Nilsson has played in four of the team's last six games and did enough on Friday to earn a win, including stopping one of two shootout attempts. Nilsson's numbers on the season aren't the greatest, but the Islanders haven't exactly been a solid team defensively.

Isles Going With Nilsson On Friday

News: Anders Nilsson will receive the start in goal Friday against the Devils.
Analysis: Unsurprisingly, coach Jack Capuano will turn the net back over to Anders Nilsson after Evgeni Nabokov started Thursday in the first game of a back-to-back. The young netminder's overall numbers on the season are far from solid (6-7-2, 3.21 GAA, .892 save percentage), but he's probably shown enough to keep him in the mix for at least a No. 2 gig with the Islanders in 2014-15.

Isles' Nilsson Handed A Loss Tuesday

News: Anders Nilsson stopped 28 of 31 shots but came away with his seventh loss of the season Tuesday against the Senators.
Analysis: The Islanders held a 15-shot advantage on the night, but the offense just couldn't push more than one goal past Sens goalie Craig Anderson, who saved 45. Expect coach Jack Capuano to turn the net back over to Evgeni Nabokov on Thursday against the Canadiens.

Islanders Go With Nilsson On Tuesday

News: Anders Nilsson will start Tuesday's game against the Senators.
Analysis: Anders Nilsson, who will be making his 15th start of the season, checks in with a .891 save percentage and 3.22 GAA overall, but he did hold the Sens to one goal on 36 shots in last Wednesday's 2-1 win.

Islanders' Nilsson Lets In Four In Loss

News: Anders Nilsson made 29 saves on 33 shots in a loss to the Blue Jackets on Sunday.
Analysis: Anders Nilsson had put together two really good starts in a row, but this is more in line with his season numbers, where he has a .891 save percentage and 3.22 GAA.

Isles' Nilsson To Start Sunday

News: Anders Nilsson will be in the crease Sunday against the Blue Jackets, Jeff Rimer of FOX Sports Ohio reports.
Analysis: Coach Jack Capuano will continue with his pattern of alternating starts between Anders Nilsson and Evgeni Nabokov, with neither likely to hold much fantasy value as a result. Nilsson's overall numbers on the season are uninspiring, but he has shown some improvement of late, winning three consecutive starts. He saved his best outing of the season for Wednesday's game against the Senators, stopping 35 of 36 shots in the victory.

Anders Nilsson

Isles' Nilsson Stops 35 In Win

News: Anders Nilsson allowed one goal on 36 shots in Wednesday night's win over the Senators.
Analysis: After a rocky start to the season, Anders Nilsson has shows some promise of late, and picked up his third straight win Wednesday with an impressive performance. He'll still be the backup moving forward, but with just 19 NHL games under his belt, he's worth keeping an eye on for the future.

Isles' Nilsson Starting Wednesday

News: Anders Nilsson will start Wednesday's game against the Senators.
Analysis: Anders Nilsson has only appeared in 14 games to date, recording a 5-5-2 record, with an .885 save percentage, and a 3.33 GAA. While his numbers aren't very impressive, he is coming off a solid win over the Devils on Saturday, when he allowed just one goal on 24 shots.

Isles' Nilsson: 23 Saves In SO Win

News: Anders Nilsson was sharp Saturday in a 2-1 shootout win over New Jersey. He made 23 saves and is 4-3 in his last seven starts.
Analysis: He's not as good as that 4-3 record suggests. He has allowed 15 goals in the three losses while winning three of the four with two or fewer goals against. It's a bit of an all-or-nothing effect for Anders Nilsson right now, but that's to be expected with young goalies on bad teams. He may become a fantasy contributor in a couple seasons.

Isles Start Nilsson On Saturday

News: Anders Nilsson will be in net for the Islanders when they face the Devils on Saturday, Newsday's Arthur Staple reports.
Analysis: While he's won three of his last five starts, Anders Nilsson has allowed 17 goals in that span, including 10 in just his last two. He's sporting a dismal 3.55 GAA and .880 save percentage, but he hasn't really been at it too long.

Nilsson, Isles Hold Off Hurricanes

News: Anders Nilsson was tagged for four goals on 28 shots, but hung on for a 5-4 win over the Hurricanes on Tuesday.
Analysis: Staked to a 4-0 lead less than 11 minutes in, Anders Nilsson proceeded to let the Hurricanes claw their way back into the game, giving up three consecutive goals before getting a much-needed insurance tally from Matt Martin -- which was followed 22 seconds later by the Hurricanes' fourth goal of the night. Nilsson's season stats are quite awful, with a couple good outings not nearly enough to compensate for the six times in 11 starts that he's allowed four-plus goals.

Anders Nilsson

Islanders Turn To Nilsson On Tuesday

News: Anders Nilsson will start Tuesday's game against the Hurricanes.
Analysis: The start will be Anders Nilsson's first since allowing six goals on 22 shots in a loss to the Wild last Tuesday. To date, Nilsson has recorded a 3.50 GAA and .882 save percentage in 12 contests.

Isles' Nilsson Gets Shelled

News: Anders Nilsson let in six goals on 22 shots for a .727 save percentage against Minnesota on Tuesday.
Analysis: After a strong showing on Saturday, allowing just one goal on 34 shots, Tuesday was a rough night. Minnesota didn't get that many shots and coach Capuano didn't have mercy on the netminder by pulling him as the goals kept piling up.

Anders Nilsson

Islanders Stick With Nilsson On Tuesday

News: Anders Nilsson will start Tuesday's game against the Wild.
Analysis: The Isles will stick with Anders Nilsson on Tuesday after he racked up 33 saves in Saturday's 4-1 win over Buffalo.

Isles' Nilsson Makes 33 Saves In Win

News: Anders Nilsson made 33 saves in Saturday's 4-1 win over the Sabres.
Analysis: He played well and had some luck, too -- he had to reach behind to snag a puck that trickled through him on a shot in the second. He's 2-2 in his last four starts, but he's had just nine starts this season. This start was his first in just over a week.

Isles Start Nilsson On Saturday

News: Anders Nilsson will be in net for the Islanders when they face the Sabres on Saturday.
Analysis: Anders Nilsson has lost three of his last four starts and has allowed a total of 12 goals in that span. The 23-year-old is now 2-4-2 with a 3.51 GAA and .883 save percentage.

Isles' Nilsson Drops Friday Decision

News: Anders Nilsson surrendered four goals on 23 shot attempts in Friday's loss to the Flames.
Analysis: After holding Winnipeg to just two goals on 38 shot attempts Tuesday, Anders Nilsson wasn't particularly sound Friday night, allowing a depleted Calgary team to roar back from a two-goal deficit in the third period to win 4-3. Evgeni Nabokov's struggles have opened the door for Nilsson to make three of the last four starts for the Islanders, but his own difficulties in Friday's game might spell a quick end to his run of playing time.

Anders Nilsson

Isles' Nilsson Starting Saturday

News: Anders Nilsson will start Friday's game against the Calgary Flames.
Analysis: With Evgeni Nabokov getting the start Thursday, Anders Nilsson always figured to handle the second game of the Isles' back-to-back. The Swedish goaltender played well in his last start but owns ugly numbers -- 2-3-2, 3.44 GAA, .888 save percentage -- for the season.

Isles' Nilsson Saves 36 In Win

News: Anders Nilsson put a stop to 36 of 38 shots in Tuesday's victory over Winnipeg.
Analysis: A fine bounce back for Anders Nilsson and the Isles after he allowed five goals Sunday in a loss to Florida. Nonetheless, he remains a highly unreliable fantasy netminder, not to be trusted except against poor opposition.

Anders Nilsson

Isles' Nilsson To Start Tuesday

News: Anders Nilsson will get the start between the pipes against the Jets on Tuesday, according to Newsday's Arthur Staple.
Analysis: Anders Nilsson was less than fantastic in a 5-3 loss to Florida on Sunday, but will nonetheless get the start versus Winnipeg, as Evgeni Nabokov is not exactly inspiring confidence either. With several Islanders wondering whether they'll be traded within the next 24 hours, it's probably best to stay away from Nilsson.

Islanders' Nilsson Gives Up Five In Loss

News: Anders Nilsson made 29 saves on 34 shots in a loss to the Panthers on Sunday.
Analysis: Anders Nilsson has only appeared in eight games, but they have not been an encouraging eight games. He has a .878 save percentage and a 3.68 GAA.
