Islanders C Brock Nelson's name has been floated as a possible trade option by Elliotte Friedman of SportsNet, who says "there will be interest" in the 26-year-old.
The Islanders could seek assistance on the blue line amid injuries to Johnny Boychuk and Calvin de Haan, according to Friedman.
Nelson has nine goals and five assists through 43 games for the Islanders this season. He was drafted 30th overall by the Islanders in the 2010 Entry Draft and is in his fifth season in the NHL -- all with the Islanders.
On Sunday, Nelson scored the game-winning goal in the Islanders' shootout victory over the Devils. Nelson and the Islanders will return to action on Saturday when they face the Rangers at Madison Square Garden.
