Frans Nielsen C NYI 12 Days

Nielsen nabbed two power-play points -- a goal and assist -- in Saturday's 6-4 loss to the Blues.

Nielsen has notched a total of four points over the last four games, allowing the Islanders' second line to remain productive. He doesn't offer much value in specialty formats due to his low hit totals, but with 16 points in 27 games, he'll provide some utility as a depth scorer in deeper leagues.

Nielsen assisted on two scores in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Lightning.

Since his Oct. 25 hat trick against the Stars, Nielsen hasn't been much of a factor offensively, contributing a goal and three assists over his last 10 contests. The two-point game could spark his production, but Nielsen nonetheless seems poised to take a step back from last season's 58-point outburst. The emergence of young forwards Ryan Strome and Brock Nelson has already cut into his ice time thus far, as Nielsen is averaging about 1:40 less of action than he enjoyed in 2013-14.

Nielsen was the lone goal-scorer in Saturday's win over the Coyotes.

The goal was Nielsen's first point in six games and his ninth point in 14 games on the season. With five goals already on the year, Neilsen is likely in for another 25-goal season as the Islanders' second-line center. The 30-year-old is a good secondary scorer, but had never posted more than 50 points in a season before his breakout 58-point campaign in 2013-14.

Nielsen scored a natural hat trick in the Islanders' 7-5 over the Stars on Saturday night.

He now has eight points, including four goals, in his last seven games. He's coming off a 58-point career year and doesn't appear to be slowing down. This dazzling Dane is a great roll right now.

Nielsen gathered his fourth assist of the season in Tuesday's loss to the Maple Leafs.

Nielsen is still in search of his first goal of the season after potting 25 in 2013-14, but he's at least been a productive facilitator on the Isles' third line. Don't expect him to provide much value in anything but the non-scoring categories, as he's never been an especially prolific hitter or blocker on defense.

Amid a another rough season for the Islanders, Nielsen has been one of the few bright spots. The 29-year-old center has 23 goals and 52 points this season. It's worth noting that he's scoring at a 16.2 percent clip, six percent higher than his career average. He should regress closer to the mean next year. Josh Bailey had the assist.
