  • Islanders' Paul LaDue: Waived Sunday

    LaDue was waived by the Islanders on Sunday, per CapFriendly.

    LaDue has appeared in just three NHL games since the start of the 2019-20 campaign. The 30-year-old blueliner scored 12 points in 60 games with AHL Bridgeport last season and will likely spend the 2022-23 campaign there again.

  • Islanders' Paul LaDue: Snags two-way deal

    LaDue agreed to terms on a two-year, two-way contract with the Islanders on Tuesday.

    LaDue has played in just three NHL contests over the last three seasons, including a single outing for the Isles last year in which he logged 12:47 of ice time. The 29-year-old North Dakota native does have 70 games of NHL experience and will likely at least get a look for a potential roster spot during training camp. Still, the fact that LaDue is on a two-way deal likely means he will once again play the bulk of his games in the minors.

  • Kings' Paul LaDue: Sent to waivers

  • Kings' Paul LaDue: Unlikely hero Monday

    LaDue scored the game-winning goal Monday versus the Blues.

    LaDue was a healthy scratch for 10 straight games and 18 of the last 22, but he was the hero in this outing. LaDue hauled in a pass from Brendan Leipsic and rocketed a slap shot past Jordan Binnington to mark his first goal since Oct. 7. However, the recency bias of this performance may wear off before the Kings' next game versus the Islanders on Feb. 2, so he's not guaranteed to stay out of the press box then.
