Andrew Ladd opened the scoring for the Islanders on Tuesday night and would add three SOG to go along with is plus two rating; however, the Islanders would lose the game 5-4 to Vancouver.
Andrew Ladd's goal on Tuesday night was his first of the season in Ladd's fourth game played for the Islanders this year. Unless something drastic changes Ladd should not be viewed as playable in fantasy.
According to NY Islanders GM, Lou Lamoriello, Andrew Ladd is back to skating on the ice. He underwent knee surgery to repair a torn ACL back in late May.
Ladd is in a race to be ready for the start of the season. He will likely be eased into action, but could be a candidate for 30+ points if he can stay on the ice.
Andrew Ladd assisted on Jordan Eberle’s first period goal of the Islanders 5-2 win over Vancouver.
Andrew Ladd has played a lot of his season on the bottom lines so it’s no wonder his point totals are not too impressive. But, going into Tuesday’s night his line assignment has improved with a move to the second line with Jordan Eberle and Brock Nelson. In the game, Ladd got an assist to bring his season totals to 3 goals and 4 assists through 14 games. Ladd may be worth monitoring to see how his new line assignment effects his point totals. At this point, Ladd is only worth owning in the deepest of leagues.
Andrew Ladd netted his third goal of the season in the Islanders victory over the Penguins on Tuesday night.
Andrew Ladd gathered his third goal of the season on Tuesday night. In addition to 3 goals in the year Ladd has 3 assists to give him a total of 6 points through 8 games. Ladd is on a fairly productive third line with Valtteri Filppula and Leo Komarov as well as the second power play line. These two assignments should give him decent scoring opportunities. In leagues where hits are a category Ladd should be considered. Otherwise Ladd should only be considered in deep leagues unless he gets a top two line assignment.
In Thursday’s night offensive bonanza for the Islanders Andrew Ladd was not left out. Ladd scored a goal and assisted on both of Valtteri Filppula’s goals.
Andrew Ladd has had fantasy relevance in the past. So, with a goal and two assists against the Kings Ladd might be worth keeping an eye on. Ladd has two goals and two assists in three games. Much like his linemate Valtteri Filppula, Ladd has had offensive success in the past with a career high of sixty two points. Similar to Filppula, again,that was several years ago. All that being said, if Ladd and Filppula can rekindle some of their previous production on a line together it may be worth noting and possibly a deep league add.
