Career Stats: Boy, the Islanders are young

New, comments

This is something that is probably best done after (or rather before?) the season, but timing and planning has never been the way of things here -- no sense starting now.

The other day, in the official site's "something happy in every loss" style, they pointed out that Mark Streit's assist his 200th career point (91 of those and 25 goals have been in an Isles uni). Which got me in a career stats state of mind: I get immersed in the in-season figures and process, but I got curious about where different Islanders fall in terms of career games, goals, +/-, etc.?

Current Islanders career totals are after the jump. I included Andy Sutton, Brendan Witt, and three most-likely Bridgeport callups, since all featured this year. Which totals or rankings surprise you?

The Easy One: Career Games Played

Almost sad how few games Martinek has compiled at age 33. Despite an even later NHL start and younger birthday, Streit is now right behind him.

Milestone Chasers: Career Points

No surprise which Old Man Hockey is the daddy here, and his assist total is three times as much as the next guy's total points. Meanwhile, sophomore Kyle Okposo is climbing up the list, but he has a while to catch ... Brendan Witt!

Bread and Butter: Career Goals

Once again the pass-first old man is the leader here, followed by a guy who was practically developed (if not drafted) by the Islanders, a couple of career grinders and Garth Snow's 2008 free agent score on the blueline. The top "young" Islanders goal-scorer so far? Bergy. But Okposo and possibly Comeau are due to catch him, as is older newbie Moulson.

The Fool's Gold: Career Plus/Minus

Now this one provides a stunning -- but well-earned -- surprise. Subject to change rapidly, of course. But MacDonald (and Nielsen's) being on the positive side for some poor teams is evidence of the real deal -- or at least, those two have shown a defensive acumen that's sharper than the average bear so far.

Meanwhile, Tavares has begun his career in a Sutton-sized hole, plus/minus-wise.

By the way, Streit is currently +1 as an islander.

Finally, one more ranking, which may (Jackman) or may not (Weight) relate to pugilism:
