Islanders D Alan Quine is out 4-6 weeks due to an upper body injury, the team announced Tuesday.

A sixth-round pick by the Isles back in 2013, Quine played his first full season in the NHL last year. He notched 18 points (five goals, 13 assists) in 61 games.

It's a tough blow for Quine, who really could have used the training camp to make an impression on Doug Weight. But for one of the younger players in camp (namely guys like Matt Barzal and Anthony Beauvillier), Quine's misfortune creates a huge opportunity.

Jaroslav Halak will get his first start in goal since Dec. 29 when the Islanders take on the Penguins tonight, Doug Weight told reporters Friday morning.

Alan Quine will be in the lineup for the injured Ryan Strome, who broke his wrist during Wednesday's 3-2 win over the Rangers.

Andy Graziano, SNY.TV:

Fans and media alike had written the Islanders off after a poor start had them hovering at NHL .500 and put the team into a tailspin that threatened their playoff hopes. After three consecutive losses to open 2017, which included dropping points in Colorado, Arizona and Florida, those cries became louder, with myself very much at the forefront.

Since then, the team has set out on a personal mission to prove us all wrong. A 7-1-1 run, which included the firing of head coach Jack Capuano, has New York three points out of the second wild card spot, holding three games in hand on the Philadelphia Flyers. Now, don't get me wrong, they still might not make the postseason, as sportsclubstats currently has them at 45%, but at least we can safely talk about the prospect instead of focusing on the 2017 NHL Draft.

Maybe it's their 11-12-5 record, or maybe it's the wind chill cutting straight through me on this blustery, cold Long Island day, but when I saw Anthony Beauvillier was scratched for Thursday's game against the Blackhawks, I felt ready to lose it.

I'm not usually prone to knee-jerk anger. It's just in my nature to be a relatively measured sports fan. But if you were among the listeners of this week's Point Blank Podcast, you know that I was approaching my breaking point, and this one tipped me over the edge.

What's the disconnect between the Islanders front office and coaching staff and reality? The Isles are 12 points out of the final Wild Card spot. The majority of their division can't lose, with Washington (five), Columbus (seven), Philadelphia (10), and Pittsburgh (seven) on insane winning streaks. The projected point total needed to grab the second Wild Card is at 103 points. The harsh reality is the Islanders are not making the playoffs.

Dennis Seidenberg has been removed from the IR, while Adam Pelech has been placed on the team's IR list, the Islanders announced Thursday evening.

Seidenberg suffered a broken jaw during New York's 3-2 overtime loss to the Panthers on Nov. 12. Prior to the injury, the defenseman had four goals and four assists in 15 games.

Pelech left Monday's game overtime win over the Flames after absorbing a hard hit. The 22-year old has a goal and two assists in nine games this season.

When should Islanders prospects Michael Dal Colle and Josh Ho-Sang get the call? SNY.tv's Brian Erni and Andy Graziano discuss...

With the Isles seven points out of a playoff spot, a lot of fans are clamoring to see the future crop of forwards in Brooklyn. Andy, do you think Michael Dal Colle and/or Josh Ho-Sang should get the call to the big club at some point this season?

When Mathew Barzal and Anthony Beauvillier showed up for their second training camp with the New York Islanders this fall, expectations were high. Management expected them to learn from their previous experiences and be even better, fans were excited to get a peek at part of the future offense and the players had one similar goal in mind - make the 23-man roster to begin the 2016-17 season. Neither was looking too far ahead, maintaining a level of maturity that belies their age of just 19.From the day the two first took the ice together at Northwell Health Ice Center, their futures were intertwined, both battling to be the one making the biggest impression on management and the coaching staff. They even practically mimicked each other in interviews - "I just have to be the hardest worker out there. Earn every inch of ice, win every shift, and make myself noticeable." is how Barzal and Beauvillier both laid out their game plans to SNY in separate conversations.As New York prepares to play its seventh game of the season tomorrow night in Brooklyn against the unbeaten Montreal Canadiens, they have, however, trended in very different directions that will have an impact on their place of residence for the remainder of the season, especially considering they have no real professional option outside of the big club. Neither is eligible for AHL consideration, being under 20 years of age and not yet completing four seasons on CHL hockey.
