Observations

March 2018 – Devon Toews will miss the rest of the season due to a shoulder injury and subsequent surgery. This is a big blow to the 24-year-old Toews, who despite playing just 30 games this year, still currently leads the Sound Tigers in defense scoring (22 points) as they approach game 60 of their schedule. This complicates things a bit for the Isles, as NHL regulars Calvin de Haan and Thomas Hickey are both unrestricted free agents and it was thought that they could count on Toews stepping right in for one of them in 2018-19. Michael Farkas

January 2017 –  Devon Toews is in his first season of Professional Hockey in the AHL for Bridgeport. A proven point producer in NCAA Division 1 for Quinnipiac University, he and the Islanders obviously felt the jump to Pro was right for his developmental curve. Devon has shown the ability to adjust to the Pro game seamlessly, as he continues to produce points (mainly assists) and be a key contributor on the power play. Devon is blessed with great hockey sense, and tremendous passing skills and vision which make him a commodity in the way the game is played today. There is a legitimate shot for Toews to play for the Islanders in the future because of his ability to move the puck and be a key possession player. Kevin Pedersen

May 23, 2016 – Devon Toews (no relation to Jonathan) was taken by the Islanders in the fourth round in 2014 in his third year of entry draft eligibility.  He spent three years at Quinnipiac University, where he amassed 12 goals and 55 assists in 108 NCAA games.  Toews improved his point totals in each season, capping off his collegiate career with seven goals and 30 points in 2015-16. Many of those points came on the power play, where Toews showed he could be an effective quarterback. Toews will fight for a full-time AHL roster spot next fall.  Brent Craswell.
