10/1/2013 3:15:00 PM
Description: Islanders winger Kyle Okposo will play with Matt Moulson and John Tavares on the top line to begin the season.
Insight: Okposo has gotten past an eye injury and should be ready for opening day. He scored just four goals last season and should be expected to do much better if he sticks with the top line all season.
 
1/14/2013 4:43:00 PM
Description: Islanders winger Kyle Okposo joined New York's top line with Matt Moulson and John Tavares on the first day of training camp. Coach Jack Capuano acknowledged there was meaning behind putting Okposo on that line. SOURCE: Newsday
Insight: "You look at some of the success they had as a line last (season), this is something we wanted to look at right away," Capuano said. "We're not going to waste a whole lot of time experimenting. Okposo skated with Tavares and Moulson 10.74 percent of the time last season, according to leftwinglock.com, and scored 45 points (24 G, 21 A), but the Islanders need a replacement for P.A. Parenteau, who skated with the top line 16.4 percent of the time last season and scored 67 points (18 G, 49 A) but has signed with Colorado. Look for Okposo to get a fantasy boost playing with the team's top players.
