2018-02-03 analysis The Islanders have had their issues on defense all season but Pelech is not part of the problem. He doesn't have the skating skills of a Nick Leddy or the booming shot of Ryan Pulock but he is turning into a solid stay at home defender who knows how to take care of the puck in his own zone. Pelech has also scored his first two goals of the season during his past eight games. He is rewarding the Is

2017-12-21 update Pelech hasn't registered a point in his last seven games and hasn't lit the lamp once this season.
2017-11-29 analysis Pelech logged 21:22 of ice time and now has nine helpers in 20 games on the season. The 23-year-old certainly have some offensive talent and was a big-time producer in the OHL, but he's yet to really translate that offensive success to the professional level. With that being said, however, Pelech appears to be taking a step forward this season and is producing at a steady rate on the second defens
2017-11-29 update Pelech contributed two assists in Tuesday's win over Vancouver.
2017-11-18 analysis The 23-year-old blueliner has five points in his last seven games -- although three of those came on Oct. 24 against Arizona, so his fantasy value in standard formats is still pretty low.
2017-11-18 update Pelech picked up an assist during Saturday's 5-3 win over the Lightning.
2017-11-11 analysis After missing the past four games, Pelech will return to the lineup and replace Ryan Pulock. The former only has one point this season aside from randomly dropping three assists on a hapless Coyotes team in late October.
2017-11-11 update Pelech (undisclosed) will return to the lineup Saturday night versus the Blues, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.
2017-11-10 analysis Early reports had Pelech as a possibility to suit up against Dallas, but fantasy owners will have to wait a little longer for his return. Scott Mayfield has deputized in Pelech's stead for the Isles' previous two outings and will presumably continue to do so moving forward.
2017-11-10 update Pelech (undisclosed) will not return to action versus the Stars on Friday, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.
2017-11-08 analysis "He's pretty healthy," head coach Doug Weight said of Pelech on Wednesday. "Today was a good test, tough practice. Pelly deserves to play so when he's ready he's going to play." We're viewing the two-way defenseman as day-to-day at this time.
2017-11-08 update Pelech (undisclosed) could return to action Friday against the Stars, Brian Compton of NHL.com reports.
2017-11-07 analysis Pelech will miss a third consecutive contest Tuesday, and he remains without a definite timetable for his return to game action. The 23-year-old blueliner had a big game Oct. 24 against Arizona, picking up three assists while registering a plus-2 rating, but he's only tallied one helper in the other 11 games he's appeared in this season, so his continued absence will likely go unnoticed by most fa
