NHL Rumors: Islanders To Trade Forward

After a very disappointing 2021-22 season, the New York Islanders are due for some roster changes. With the team in need of a scoring winger, one young player who they could be willing to move is Kieffer Bellows, according to Kevin Kurz.

Although it was a bad year for the Islanders, it was a pretty solid year for Bellows personally. He showed that he can be an NHL-caliber player and put together some decent offensive totals. In 45 games on the year, he scored six goals and recorded 19 points. Although he wasn't dominant, he is starting to look more like a top-nine winger.

However, with Bellows' trade value starting to rise, perhaps he could be a part of a trading package to land a true top-six winger for Mathew Barzal. Alas, this is something to keep an eye on this summer.
