REGULAR SEASON SUMMARY
Head coach Jim Fulton’s troops posted a 37-24-7 record and 81 points to finish ninth overall in the QMJHL. The team was led by Nova Scotia native Derek Gentile who arrived in Charlottetown in a trade with the Quebec Remparts and posted 61 points in 68 games on the year. Unfortunately, the offensively starved Islanders were among the bottom five teams in the league with 209 goals scored. The news was a little better defensively, as the Islanders were ninth in the Q with 219 goals against. And for that number they have captain and blue line anchor Pierre-Olivier Joseph to thank as he amassed 46 points in 63 games, all while limiting the damage in the Charlottetown zone. The Islanders will have to improve their power play if they hope to advance deep into the playoffs after finishing 17th in that department at 15.1%. They did finish ninth in the league with 80.2% on the penalty kill though. While the team did suffer through a tough five-game losing skid early in the year, they did bounce back with a six-game winning streak in October. Goalie Matthew Welsh won 31 games to place in the League’s top three in that department, meaning if he gets in the “zone”, Charlottetown can hope to make some waves this spring.
