Excitement surrounding Islanders hockey is back after the team had a successful regular season under first-year head coach Barry Trotz and swept a first-round playoff series over favored Pittsburgh. Much of that success was thanks to Vezina Trophy finalist Robin Lehner, who (along with backup Thomas Greiss) allowed the fewest number of goals in the NHL a season ago. Now, it’s Greiss’s job, as Lehner wasn’t resigned. Semyon Varlamov was brought on board to back-up Greiss.
Things were a bit steadier this offseason for the rest of the team. Captain Anders Lee was signed to a new contract, while young defensemen Ryan Pulock and Adam Pelech – who were instrumental in shutting down the Peguins – return to a defense that went from allowing the most goals in the league in 2017-18, to allowing the fewest last season.
