Kyle Okposo had an assist in The Islanders' 5-2 loss to Toronto Tuesday night.
Okposo is off to a great start with two goals and eight points in six games. He set a career-high last season with 69 points and it wouldn't be shocking if he ends up doing a bit better in 2014-15.

Charlie Coyle skated with Mikko Koivu and Thomas Vanek during Tuesday's practice.
Koivu doesn't have a point in four games and Vanek has only one assist, so coach Mike Yeo is hoping that Coyle can help get his new linemates going. Koivu and Coyle enjoyed some success together last season.

Rick Nash pulling away in goal scoring race
Rick Nash | NYR
(October 22, 2014 10:30 AM EDT)
Rick Nash has a commanding lead in the NHL's goal scoring race.
Nash scored his eighth goal of the season on Tuesday, putting him three markers ahead of the nine players that are tied for second place. Nash has played in just seven games this season. Obviously, we expect him to cool down at some point, but it seems fair to believe that this won't be a repeat of his disappointing 39-point 2013-14 campaign.

Adam Larsson doesn't play much in debut
Adam Larsson | NJ
(October 22, 2014 10:20 AM EDT)
Adam Larsson logged just 12:30 minutes in his season debut on Tuesday.
Larsson was a healthy scratch for five straight games. "I thought he was fine," Devils coach Peter DeBoer said. "It's a lot for all our young D to be thrown in. They've got a lot of speed up front. That team is three to four lines deep. I thought our group defensively overall 5-on-5 was pretty good. We bent a little bit in different areas, but I thought we played a pretty solid game. We gave up 24, 25 shots to that team, which isn't a big number." Larsson has a lot of offensive upside, but no fantasy value in standard leagues at this time.
