The New York Islanders will be without several key players ahead of their first-ever game in their new home, UBS Arena, on Saturday night against Calgary. Adam Pelech, Andy Greene and Anthony Beauvillier were added to the COVID-19 protocol list on Saturday, joining captain Anders Lee, Josh Bailey and Ross Johnston.
Beauvillier, a forward, is tied for third on the team in scoring with seven points (3 goals, 4 assists), while Pelech and Greene are mainstays on the blue line. Each has played in all of the team's first 13 games this season, as New York posted a 5-6-2 mark, all on the road.
Several dignitaries took part in a ribbon-cutting ceremony for UBS Arena on Friday, as the Islanders prepare to open the $1.5 billion multi-purpose facility next to the Belmont Park racetrack in Elmont, N.Y.
