Speaking to Newsday on Thursday New York Islanders GM Lou Lamoriello indicated that Anthony Beauvillier could be in the running to be the team’s third-line center now that Valtteri Filppula has departed for the Detroit Red Wings during free agency.
From what Lou indicated, Casey Cizikas will continue to be the team’s fourth-line center with wingers Matt Martin and Cal Clutterbuck. It seems Barry Trotz won’t split them up. I can’t say I blame Trotz. The trio was incredibly effective in both ends of the ice for the New York Islanders.
