Auston Matthews is taking an unconventional path to the NHL, and has earned a few accolades already while playing in Switzerland. Two electric playmakers go head-to-head in a battle of assist machines in the QMJHL, and a pair of potential Canadian teammates will likely see a lot of each other in a weekend contest. The Tampa Bay Lightning’s newest signee lines up against a powerhouse forward in what could be a preview of what to expect in the future from both Floridian franchises. NCAA hockey is back, and two Top-20 teams are set to clash in a non-conference game to close out this week’s edition of Prospect Faceoff.

The New York Islanders have moved to Brooklyn this season, and are looking to build off last year’s performance. The pieces are in the system for the Islanders to be an elite team. John Tavares is the face of the franchise and finished second in the NHL in scoring last season, while Kyle Okposo and Ryan Strome provide secondary scoring. The team’s defense is solidified by Johnny Boychuk, and Jaroslav Halak provides stable goaltending for the first time since Rick DiPietro. Read more»
